Fifteen giant mazes full to the brim with puzzles provide the challenge in this enormous test of spatio-visual logic. The maze components - fish, chickens, H-bombs, V-bombs, dollies and forcefields among others - behave according to strict physical rules, so you always know what they're going to do in any given circumstance.

By shunting these objects around with your two shield-like explorers you can unlock the tricky formations in your way and get at the masks you need to complete each maze - but only after some very careful thought. It's easy to work out what an individual object will do when shunted, but since one object can set others in motion it's perfectly possible to trigger a fish-chicken-bomb avalanche by an ill-considered move.

There's no time-limit to the game and no manual dexterity required, but clarity of thought and attention to detail are vital. You'll also need considerable imagination to think your way sideways out of problems. A classic game for brains!
