This game of maze puzzles with chicken, fish and explosions, is a classic for getting "walled out" and it can happen at any time. The puzzles are constructed so that in nearly every case one wrong move can scupper the whole game. Of course your second shield might be able to get you out of trouble but you'll probably be too flustered to manage it.

The worst part about it is the speed with which events can happen. You decide on a move and put it into action, only to find the unstoppable sequence of events results in a fish penetrating your skull.

It's also a classic for the creeping feeling of "Oh no, what have I done?"" as it slowly dawns on you that you've blocked off an essential passage. It's absolutely devastating and makes you that much more determined to have another go and succeed.
