Mummy Maze Deluxe is a fun puzzle game. The objective is to get your explorer to the end of the maze without being caught by the mummies. To move your explorer you use the arrow keys or click on the next square beside him. However, when you make a move the mummy also moves twice the distance (unless it's stopped by a wall). Also, the mummy always tries to take a direct path to you first horizontally, then vertically. So, in order to escape, you must use that fact and the pyramids walls to trap the mummy and reach the end of the maze.
Each pyramid has 15 chambers (mazes) and the last one contains an ancient secret. Once you complete one pyramid you can get to the next one, which is harder. If you make a mistake, you can reset the maze or undo the last move. Your score in each maze is determined by the maze's difficulty and the time you take to solve it.
What is more, sometimes you may encounter two mummies in the same maze. You should try to lure them into each other and only one will survive. Also, in some mazes there are scorpions locked in cages that either you or the mummy can release by stepping on a key. Scorpions behave like mummies except that they move one square per turn. There are also red mummies who move vertically first and then horizontally and deadly traps.
You should always keep an eye on the Ankh in the bottom left that is present in some pyramids. If it turns red, there's no way to solve the current pyramid, so you can undo your moves until it is no longer red or reset the maze.
The game includes two modes: Classic and Adventure. In the Classic mode, the mazes get more difficult as you progress, whereas in the Adventure mode there are 15 pyramids to explore with the most difficult mazes. You have to collect all the 15 treasures to complete this mode.
In short, Mummy Maze Deluxe is a very challenging and enjoyable puzzle game that will surely keep you playing for a while.
