I have another maze for you to do. This one is , the last was . But you see, they may look like the opposite of mazes, but you can find a way to enter and exit, and thus win.

 exit

qmqzing
vhucken
muggetz
ouxsket
answdrz
douvlef
comlurw
solcemy
    |
enter

Here's a version without misspelled words below. This will help but your maze takes place on the above "board".

amazing
chicken
nuggets
puzzler

  • $\begingroup$ Okk... So, What exactly are we supposed to do? I mean where to enter, where to exit?? $\endgroup$ – Sid Jul 20 '16 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ The bottom is the entrance, the top in the exit. I'll make that more clear. $\endgroup$ – haykam Jul 20 '16 at 14:39

    $\begingroup$ This would work a lot better if the correct words weren't provided.. maybe you could clue them in the future? $\endgroup$ – Arth Jul 20 '16 at 15:14

    $\begingroup$ The idea for the puzzle is nice, but I have to agree with @Arth that providing both the "maze" and the correct words is basically posting a puzzle with its solution next by. :c( I'm still up-voting the idea, though. $\endgroup$ – BmyGuest Jul 20 '16 at 19:01

Representing a correct character by 1 and an incorrect character by 0 we get:

0101111
0101111
0111110
0100010
1111010
1110110
1110100
1110100
If we assume ones can be navigated as the path, and taking the entrance and exit as column-specific, we can solve the maze by beginning in the 5th column, go up 3, right 1, up 4, left 4, up three and exit.

    $\begingroup$ i think the 'enter' and 'exit' marks are column-specific. $\endgroup$ – kayzeroshort Jul 20 '16 at 14:52
  • $\begingroup$ @dcfyj How do you spoiler tag preformatted text? $\endgroup$ – Morgan G Jul 20 '16 at 14:55
  • $\begingroup$ Just place >! at the beginning of each line, you can use the preview under your post for guidance. Also you can use two spaces at the end of the line for line breaks. $\endgroup$ – dcfyj Jul 20 '16 at 14:57

    $\begingroup$ @MorganG I've spoiler-tagged it for you. For preformatted text, you need to use the <pre> tag when it's in a spoiler. I also removed the strikeout text. People can see previous answers in the edit history if they're interested. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Jul 20 '16 at 14:59

Assuming that a solution involves

traversal of the maze using only correct characters.

There appear to be several solutions, but the most efficient one is

$\require{action}\require{enclose}\toggle{\enclose{roundedbox}{\text{ Click here to show solution }}\\\begin{array}{l}\mathtt{qmqzing}\\\mathtt{vhucken} \\\mathtt{muggetz}\\\mathtt{ouxsket}\\\mathtt{answdrz}\\\mathtt{douvlef}\\\mathtt{comlurw}\\\mathtt{solcemy}\end{array}}{\enclose{roundedbox}{\text{ Click here to hide solution }}\\\begin{array}{l}\mathtt{q}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{m}}\mathtt{qzing}\\\mathtt{v}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{h}}\mathtt{ucken} \\\mathtt{m}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{ugget}}\mathtt{z}\\\mathtt{ouxsk}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{e}}\mathtt{t}\\\mathtt{answd}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{r}}\mathtt{z}\\\mathtt{douv}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{le}}\mathtt{f}\\\mathtt{coml}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{u}}\mathtt{rw}\\\mathtt{solc}\bbox[cyan]{\mathtt{e}}\mathtt{my}\end{array}}\endtoggle$
