Maze preview Flynn (author of H.E.R.O. and WinCPC) is currently working on a labyrinth game for the CPC. At the moment it is possible to walk in the labyrinth, but there are no enemies and other objects yet.The game will use 128kb RAM, so you need at least a CPC6128 or a CPC with RAM expansion.
You can see some more screenshots in the german CPC forever forum.
