It was Jeremy Winterrowd who developed the maze game in the year 2004 which is a flash game and in present days is commonly referred to as the Scary Maze Game. The maze game requires its user to move the mouse pointer to advance through the game. There are a total of 4 levels in the game that a player needs to complete to move ahead in the maze game. But some believe that there are basically 3 levels. Level 1 and level 2 are really simple to play. With the introduction to the third level, the walls become narrow and keep slimming increasing the hardness of playing the game. Players find it hard to avoid touching the walls. This level requires maximum concentration as well as patience as it is tough to pass this level at the first go. To distract there is a plank at the end of the passage near the red button which involves a loud sound and a scary picture from the Exorcist movie of Regan MacNeil.
The new versions of this game hardly have any difference than the older version. The color of the game has changed from turquoise to orange. In The USA this game has a different version with the use of What’s Wrong’s images in order to avoid copyright issues. The game has millions of players who keep giving valuable feedbacks in the form of reviews. Some of these reviews are even published on YouTube for others to have some knowledge of the game. Some videos show people getting scared and shouting after they hear sudden loud sound in the maze while playing. Some are even seen hitting the screen of the device or running away from the screen while they play scary maze game due to the sudden shock.
