The Notes

Each time the computer creates an entire maze and ensures there is an exit. It's also a circular maze: if you go straight to the left, you will get the starting point !

The computer spents many time on creating the maze. That's the reason for showing so many time the presentation screen.

Yes, I had problems with my old tapes and some screen presentation grafics are bad. I apologize.
