What MazeBot is about

MazeBot was originally created to participate in a #1GAM challenge but was later extended to go beyond a simple prototype. As the challenge’s topic was “CGA Graphics” the game features retro visuals based upon video game graphics of the early to mid 1980s using a 4-color-only palette and a total resolution of 320×200 pixels.


MazeBot is a action-focused speedrun game with vintage CGA graphics. Find your way through maze-like levels, fight enemies and elude traps.
