Does anyone have the manual for this game, or can explain to me what the "Alter-Ego" robot is for? Also, what does the "Touch-Typist" option do?

Hello, I am the curator of the RetroWeb Vintage Computing Museum. I am happy to announce that MazeWars+ can now be played on my website, in multi-player mode across the Internet.

Tried to install and play on a Mac OS 9.2
Sadly, It failed to run. Sad

The designer/programmer of this game also designed the coin-ops Berzerk and Frenzy, both maze shooters, for Stern Electronics back in the 80s. Great interview with Alan at

Of course what I really remember from this period of time was an Atari ST game, MIDI Maze:

I've uploaded a new archive with bootable disk images of version 1.0 (which I just obtained) and version 1.1 (which had been here and on Le Grenier du Mac but not in a bootable image) and scans of everything included in the 1.0 package. There were no instructions in the box, though they are not really necessary. If anyone finds themselves in possession of anything related to this game, printed manual or otherwise, please let us know here. This was a significant early Mac game!

I can't imagine Adobe having a cease-and-desist over this one.

Are you sure Publisher is Macromind, could it probably be Engine?

What a hoot, I supervised a lab of 20 Mac Plus's at my university while I was a student there. On the annual open day, I had all of them running MazeWars, we were packed out all day.

Maze Wars was one of the first networkable video games, which was originally developed on Xerox research machines. It used the then-unknown Ethernet to allow multiple players to shoot each other in a simulated environment. Having never played the Macintosh version over a network, I can only assume the modem and LocalTalk icons are for networking the game. See the Wiki entry:
