The player moves downward through a continuously vertically-scrolling maze with vertical symmetry.
Trying to get as far as possible while avoiding enemies that move across the screen; if the player contacts a monster, they die and the game is over.
The maze will continually scroll upwards on the screen, and while the player can move in any direction, this scrolling action may leave the player stuck in a dead-end; if the player's position scrolls off-screen, then the game is also over.
The player can collect a "make-break" item, represented by a large dot, that can remove a wall space and allow the player to proceed out of a dead-end.
In two-player mode, both players are in the maze at once.
