 I.  FAQ HISTORY
=============================================================================
Version 0.02 (03/19/00)
     Initial release

For future updates, each maze completed will count as 0.01.


=============================================================================
 II.  INTRODUCTION/GAMEPLAY
=============================================================================
In 1986, Sega introduced its Master System.  The system usually came with a 
game in the box like Alex Kidd or Hang-on.  The system also had its own built 
in game.  The object of the game was to guide a snail through a maze to reach 
the goal before the time ran out.  This guide shall provide the maps of each 
and every maze along with the solutions.

To access the game, first turn on the Master System with no cartridge 
inserted.  When the instructions appear onscreen, press UP and both buttons 
on controller 1.  The instructions will slide off to the left and the game 
will appear.  Starting at the "S", use the directional pad to guide the snail 
to the flashing goal marked by the "GOAL."  You have a limited time to make 
it.  When you reach the goal, you will move on to the next round.  Some 
additional time will be added then to your current total time.  The game ends 
when the total time is up.  You can play as many times as you wish but you 
will start from the beginning if you game over.


=============================================================================
 III.  MAZES
=============================================================================
The following are the mazes in the game.  The starting point is denoted with 
an "S" and the goal is denoted with a "G."  The path to the goal is marked 
with "#."  Each maze is 30 x 16 squares.

Round 1
Time 60 seconds
