Choose an small easy maze until you get used to the game, then test yourself with the harder ones. Set the color scheme to one of the nine preset ones, or use your own. A choice of viewpoints means you can choose the one that you understand the easiest. Use your own custom messages on the walls.
There are a variety of things to make it easier. The hint feature gives you precise directions on which way you should be going. The distance indicator tells you just how far you are from the exit, so you can tell if you are getting closer or further away. The compass lets you know the direction you are facing. The mud map automatically keeps track of where you've been.
And, of course, there things to make the game harder. Watch out for the MUCUS (Ewwww!!!), a big glob of mucus that can chase you through the maze. Don't get slimed now! The random transportation factor lets you set the probability of suddenly being transported somewhere else in the maze. And a choice of maze algorithms means once you discover how to solve one type of maze, there's another type for you to tackle.
