The Amazing Maze
by Daniel Gunnell

The Amazing Maze is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2020 by Daniel Gunnell.

In this very short tribute game, you play as a fan of interactive fiction. You've come to visit an attraction called The Amazing Maze created by the local IF community. Don't worry. It's not a real maze.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 2 of the game.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.

This is the response to CREDITS:

Welcome to The Amazing Maze, a little interactive fiction game that was written using Playfic, a website which uses Inform 7 to write and share IF games. If you have never played an interactive fiction game before, you move around the story by typing in commands such as NORTH, GET LAMP, GIVE MAN KEY or something similar. The maze itself isn't that hard to navigate, and you won't get stuck in it.
