Description: 

A fabulous treasure, the Heart of Courage, lies at the bottom of the
Dungeons of Ezam. Can you retrieve it?

This game puts you in an invisible maze, populated by deadly monsters.
After the maze briefly appears on the screen, most walls will vanish, leaving
you to grope around in the dark with only some pieces visible. Walls will
appear when you bump into them. If you land on a pickaxe, that lets you chop
down the next wall you hit. Pickaxes can be accumulated, but will be used
whenever you bump into a wall, so they'll run out quickly if you don't stick
to the clear paths. Try to save them for where they're really needed, though
this takes good memory of where clear paths exist and where they don't.

If you locate and land on the map, a flashing blue square that appears in
some mazes, the whole maze becomes visible and you can work your way through
the rest of it by sight. Just watch out for the monsters, which kill you if
you run into them or they run into you. Teleport scrolls give you a chance to
escape sure death by jumping to a random spot elsewhere in the maze.

Get out the other end, and you'll have to do it all over again in another
maze, as you work your way deeper into the dungeon. Get killed, and that's
that; as in real life, you get only one chance. Good luck!

One note: the opening screen reports a rumor that pickaxes are a sure defense
against the dungeon's inhabitants. As far as I can see, this rumor is false,
since the critters kill me just as easily when I've got axes as when I don't.
But, what do I know? I'm just the editor!
