Did 3D monster maze have it's beginnings here?

Post by Moggy »

On page 14 of the PDF is a simple maze game in Tiny BASIC and although it's minus the fabled monster the maze does look very familiar and appeared two years before 3D monster maze was released.

Or are the algorithms used common ones? I only ask as my knowledge of these things is nil.

I don't think so.

A lot of coders made 3D mazes without knowing this article.
I myself made multiple 3D mazes. Besides that, the shown screens are not how 3D monster maze is generated.
3DMM has al least always 2 steps to the next passage,
