3D Maze Ball - escape the ball out of the 3D maze while avoding all hazards
3D Maze Ball is a simple, but cool, "escape out of the maze" game. Just roll the screen with the arrow keys to let the boll roll in the right direction. Avoid hazards and holes as you run - to escape. The game follows the rules of physics so the ball will accelarate if you let it roll down - so be careful not to lose it too fast!
Maze game is a video game genre description first used by journalists during the 1980s to describe any game in which the entire playing field is a maze. Quick player action is required to escape monsters, outrace an opponent, or navigate the maze within a time limit. After the release of Namco's Pac-Man in 1980, many maze games followed its conventions of completing a level by traversing all paths and a way of temporarily turning the tables on pursuers.
A maze is a path or collection of paths, typically from an entrance to a goal. The word is used to refer both to branching tour puzzles through which the solver must find a route, and to simpler non-branching ("unicursal") patterns that lead unambiguously through a convoluted layout to a goal. (The term "labyrinth" is generally synonymous with "maze", but can also connote specifically a unicursal pattern.) The pathways and walls in a maze are typically fixed, but puzzles in which the walls and paths can change during the game are also categorised as mazes or tour puzzles.
