The game

A group of Koala bears got trapped in a maze by an evil doctor. This is a rather nasty environment for Koala bears. It contains explosives and moving saws that clearly must be avoided. It is your task to guide the Koala bears through many different maze levels such that they can finally escape.

You can give the bears instructions to move left, right, up and down, using the arrow keys. But all bears will react simultaneously to the commands. So all bears will move together, unless they are blocked by a wall. So it is impossible to e.g. move them one by one to the exit.

The maze will contain explosives that must be avoided. If a Koala bear is killed you must redo the level. On later levels there will also be moving saws. Some passageways will be locked and can only be opened by switches that a Koala must reach. Locks and switches come in different colors that must be matched. Also there will be rocks that the Koala can push away to create a route or to block the saws.

Get the koala’s out of the 10 mazes without killing, freeing them from the evil doctor.
