History

An area maze or "A-maze" for short is a maze where you step from tile to tile, observing carefully the size
of the area of the tile you are standing on.
This sizes have to alternate: bigger, smaller, bigger, smaller, etc.

So if you go from one tile to an adjacent bigger tile, then the next step has to be to an adjacent smaller tile.

A-mazes are a totally new type of mazes and have been discovered on 15 August 1999 in London by the author.
Consequently there is no literature available on them whatsoever.
So here some examples of A-Mazes (see also my collection of A-MAZES as Zillions games ):



Examples of A-Mazes

Example 1
This is the first A-maze ever published.
The task is to start at one decorated square and visit all other decorated squares.
You have to find out as well whether to start "smaller, bigger, smaller,..."  or to start "bigger, smaller, bigger,...".

Part of the challenge is of course to find out whether one observed tile is actually bigger or smaller or equal in area to
another observed tile.

Example 2
See my Ziillions games for the software version.
The task is to start at one blue triangle and visit all other blue triangles.

Example 3
See my Ziillions games for the software version.
The task is to start at one butterfly (yellow 2x2 square) and visit all other butterflies.
