The player has no chance of winning a fight against the minotaur, so the only option is to run to escape its attacks. The game is over immediately if the minotaur reaches you.
Before beginning the game, you can choose the dimensions of the labyrinth. The bigger it is, the more difficult it will be to escape from it, and the easier it will be for the minotaur to find you.
Aside from the single-player mode, players can also play Minotaur Maze with others through the internet. The two online game modes allow you to either collaborate with another player to escape, or to assume the role of the minotaur and try to catch the other player.
Minotaur Maze is a very fun game of skill, especially in multi-player mode. It can get a little boring when you play it on your own, but it's always fun to try and defeat artificial intelligence.
