Here is another Wormeus maze, following a previous puzzle that is yet to go viral. Wormeus has to eat all the apples without dying a horrible squishy death at the hands of the Pink Lady Stickotaur. I believe this maze should be slightly more challenging since there are fewer opportunities to recover from a false step. I also have also specified a move limit (which I believe to be the minimum).
Here is a quick recap of the rules:
- Wormeus’s actions are: Up, Left, Right, Down, Eat, Delay
- Stickotaur’s actions are: Up, Left, Right, Down
- For every action by Wormeus, Stickotaur takes two actions
- Stickotaur always moves closer to Wormeus if possible, and horizontal moves take precedence over vertical moves.
- It is not possible for both sides to achieve their win condition simultaneously.
Your task is to eat all the apples in at most 101 moves
101 moves means 101 actions by Wormeus, including delaying. This also implies 100 "double-actions" by Stickotaur (after Wormeus eats the last apple, Stickotaur does not get two extra actions)
