MAZECUBE for the 48K Spectrum by PAL Software is a new idea in maze games. The maze covers the six sides of a cube and there are 48 pound notes which the little man has to pick up. When he picks up a note a gate blocks his path at that point. The number of paces taken to pick up all 48 are counted and the winner is the one with the least. To make things more interesting there are 24 mazes, plus one for practice.

As he moves round the maze you can rotate it to view it from different sides and the man also changes profile. To help you recognise him the instructions include a cube which can be cut out to make a maze man.

It is a well-implemented idea. It would have been marginally better if the cube could have been bigger but overall it is well-thought-out. The game is written entirely in Basic, which shows you do not necessarily need machine code if the idea is right.
