October 20, 2008  |  By micwiz

 |  Version: Daedalus 2.2

Pros

I tried it ones and it was great, just what i was looking for.

Cons

i tried downloading it again right now because i liked it and wanted it again, and upon the download avast came up and warned me about win 32 something gen i think.

I cancelled the download and got rid of the virus/whatever it was.

"AMazing! Installs easily, Super-powerful, A bit daunting for Dad"

June 23, 2008  |  By timtak

 |  Version: Daedalus 2.2

Pros

This really is, as it says, the most powerful maze making program. It makes many types of mazes, using many difficult algorythms, in any size, many shapes, and 2 or three (or perhaps more) dimensions.

It installed on my XP system seamlessly. I was making mazes within a few minutes (once I had read the introduction to the help that explained point 2 below).

If you just want a quick maze, then there are online creators that will do the job. If you want control over any and every aspect of the maze you create analysis of its difficulty then this is the real mcoy.

Cons

1) It wants to install itself in a deadalus directory in the C drive. I changed that to program files thinking, stupidly, that it would create a daedalus director in there as most programs do, but it is installed in the root of Program Files. Solution: create a Deedalus directory in program files, first and browse to that directory. If you don't install into C:/Daeduls the shortcuts in the program menu do not seem to be updated to the new location.

2) The mazed looked wong at first, as if they were missing the top and left hand side. This is because the mazes are created with the paths in black and the walls white. For printing use Bitmap>All>inverty all, or Create>Polished maze (also just type the / key). This is explained in the help file so it is not reallly a problem but a bit counter intuitive.

3) As the programmer says "All the various commands may seem confusing at first" - yes, that just about sums it up. With the immense power of this software, there is an inevitable learning curve. But it is possible to make mazes (beaing in mind two above) straight away upon installation.

4) I wish there were an undo command. The Edit "save bitmap" and "paste bitmap" achieve the same effect however.
