Mr Maze is a first-person adventure game based around exploration of a series of mazes. You start the game on a holiday with your family, but when your daughter is captured by the Maze Meister you set out on a journey through a series of increasingly difficult challenges to save her. There are 35 Steam Achievements, all documented in the walkthrough below.

Scrap Palace

After you arrive, go around the car and talk to Jennifer, then follow Penny to the queue and talk to her. Wait until the woman in front of you realises she has lost her handbag, then return to the carpark. Find a rabbit on the ground near the far left corner and interact with it Creature Comforts. Now grab the purse from on top of the red car on the right. Go back to the queue and talk to the lady, who will enter the maze.

While the ticket seller is busy, go and talk to Andrew, who is sitting on the bench. Turn around and talk to the ticket seller, then go and talk to Penny at the entrance. Make your way through the maze, talking to Andrew through the fence when you see him. Talk to Penny in the tunnel, then she will run ahead again.

Read the "Meister History" journal (1/2) on the bench here, then talk to the police officer. Enter the next maze made with corrugated iron sheets. Go up over some wooden ramps to get to the second part of this maze, and continue until you find a girl who has lost her mother. Back track until you find the mother, then go to the girl and give her the directions. Now you can go over some more wooden ramps to the third part of this maze. Talk to the young lady, who mentions the Maze Meister. Continue forward to an open area with a dry fountain. Talk to the young lady again, who introduces herself as Velvet.

Go to the next maze, where you see 2 more people entering ahead of you. Continue to the barbed wire section, and you will see Penny up ahead. Head through the maze until you can interact with the deer, which will disappear in front of you. Read the "Keith's Ledger" journal (2/2) on the barrel to the left. Continue through some more barbed wire, then into a more closed in area where Joffrey will run ahead of you. Go up a ramp, then down and back up some more ramps. Continue up twice more, then out to see Jenny dancing on the wooden platform at the top.

Listen to the comments from Joffrey and his father, then head down the exit ramp. When Penny calls out to you, turn around and go back up to talk to her, then step into the portal Scrap Palace.
