    Ha - at last a decent games comes up! I've been nominating this game for years and could almost have sent my nominations to OOO as "the usual" rather than naming them. I shudder to think what scores some of you good players will achieve.

    For the proper effect with this game you need the samples installed, which I believe originally were a cassette tape loop - I wonder how long that lasted in the arcades. It's companion game from the same manufacturer is "NATO Defense" and lots of these maze style games came out after the success of Pacman.

    I'm kind of enjoying this title. I've never played it, but have always been a fan of the lesser known maze games

    Like all things, if you keep plugging away, there's a good chance it will happen. And so now we have THIEF on the arcade floor. Well done. I like the banter as well, so getting the sound samples is a must.

    I have a predilection for maze games and chase down as many as I can find. Always like to see the different interpretations and ways you can arrange a basic maze. A few years back I was gamemaster for a few MGLs before it joined up with TG and ran a short competition named "Amazing Mazes" which was a laugh.
