tl;dr: This is a glitchy mish-mash of Pac-Man, Ultima, and Jill of the Jungle.
This game is truly awful. It describes itself as both an adventure AND an arcade game, and it's not far off base. You play a random weird-looking blond woman with palsy and are trapped in a maze full of scaled-down sprites stolen from games like Heretic. You can collect the dots strewn around the maze, but AFAIK you don't need to. Just reach the exit.
As far as I can tell, the monsters in the maze can't really kill you. I think I died once at the beginning and became invincible. Most of them don't even care enough to chase you. Just shoot your rockets at them using spacebar. Sometimes they'll pick you up which causes you to curl up into a tiny ball and glitch through walls. If this happens, just hit N to execute a dodge roll away from them.
This game is a mess. It strikes me like it was a student project that was released in a half-finished state, and full of half-baked ideas.
