The Mystic Maze Puzzle Game
“The Mystic Maze” is a well known Tarzan the Monkey pattern that was first created in 1941. It has been made available to numerous versions of the Tarzan the Monkey puzzle. In this version, the game has become much more challenging due to the addition of new elements that make this pattern more difficult. The different elements include the nine holes, which have to be navigated through and three magical items which are required to complete the puzzle.
This is the most advanced version of the Tarzan the Monkey puzzle. It involves ninety-nine holes that have to be navigated by means of a grid. This grid can be created by using the grid paper or by using a card which is cut out. There are nine possible positions that the nine holes may occupy and the task is to get all of the pieces to those positions without letting any of them fall into any of the holes. This requires strategic placement of the four magnetic cards, which are placed on top of the nine rows that make up the puzzle board.
In this version the mystic maze has to be solved within a very short time. This is possible thanks to the addition of the magical items. These items consist of the eye, the pendant and the wand. They are required to be collected before they are allowed to enter any of the nine holes on the grid. Collecting all the three items allows the participant to see a vision of the tenth hole which leads to a dead end.
The ninth position on the grid corresponds to the treasure, which is guarded by a Pterodactyl. When the mouse is clicked, it will open a panel containing the magic item which contains a golden egg. By clicking on this egg the user will then reveal the secret passage which leads to the location of the tenth item – the pendant. This pendant allows the user to enter the eleventh hole on the grid. However, in this particular game the mystics must help themselves by moving the torches across the map to light the path.
When the participant enters the tenth hole of the mystical powers activate and transform them into mighty warriors. They can then proceed to the next level of the maze by clicking on the squares on the puzzle board which change in appearance according to the level. Once the player reaches the twenty-second level, they will be able to see the appearance of the dragon who wishes to rule the world named Dracula. However, the mystical powers transform him into a bat which he uses to fly over the map.
For the third level only the non-magic items are used. On the fourth level only the magic items are used and the players have to use the sword to kill the enemies. At the end of the game the player receives points equal to the number of items that were picked up during their play session. However, in the online version of the game you have the option of choosing from the wide range of items offered including the potions, the jewel, the mirror and many others. The game is available for free and you can download it to your computer for free!
