Welcome! Copies of the source code for the games on mazeworks.com have been removed from the general download section. Copies are still available by email by request and will be provided as time permits. The license for use of this software (see below) is a simple, permissive, free software license. All the files are in Zip format.

If you're a programmer, the Java source code is available for you to read, modify, compile, distribute, etc. We'd love to hear about any modifications you might make.

If you'd like to post a copy of one or more of the programs on your web site, or just have the games available to play in a browser offline, the download files contain everything you'll need. A sample web page is also included with each applet. Just unzip the download file, preferably in its own directory, and point your browser to the file Sample.htm. The applet should start right up.

It's worth mentioning that all of the text in all of the programs is passed in as HTML parameters. This means that you can change the text displayed in an applet, even translate it into another language, without having to modify the source code. The applet background color is also a parameter, which should make it easier for you to adapt the applet to your particular site.

We hope you enjoy working with the programs, and/or playing the games, as much as we enjoyed creating them.
