First-time developer Menashe presents a solid take on an underexplored genre with Mouse Maze: Speed Run, a free Flash maze game that has a surprising amount of variety in its level layouts.

The gameplay is simple -- players use the mouse pointer to navigate mazes and collect cheese icons without touching each level's surrounding walls. The emphasis on speed adds an extra layer of challenge.

While many of the game's challenges are straightforward, some stages (like the one pictured above) are based on drawings, and provide a fun respite from the narrow corridors that make up the bulk of the game's level design. Give it a try!
