This is a fairly original game. The maze has been turned into a 3D maze using colour. It is quite realistic too. The man runs behind hedges so that only the top half of him can be seen. Bonus features apart, this is basically a Pacman type game and its a reasonably good one too. The game offers user-definable keys; it's playable but I still prefer the fruity original. Nonetheless this is a good version.

The only 3D maze game out of the bunch, essentially everything else is the same - ghosts chase in a hazardous sort of way, power pills aid your task. The differences are the 3D effect and 'you' are a real running, but small, man that walks over the dots. Sound and colour are average. I didn't really like the 3D effect maze, but the game itself plays averagely. Novel.
