My aim is to design logic maze puzzles that look enticingly simple, but in fact are fiendishly challenging. I hope I've achieved that in at least a few of the mazes on this site.
Most of the mazes include solutions, but there's a one-minute delay before you can see the solution to a maze, to avoid inadvertently displaying a "spoiler" before you've had a chance to try and figure it out yourself.
My first introduction to interesting mazes was a paperback I found in a second-hand bookshop called "For Amazement Only" by Walter Shepherd. It was originally published by Penguin Books during the Second World War in 1942.
More recently I encountered the mazes designed by games inventor Robert Abbott via his book "Mad Mazes", Bob Adams Inc Publishers, 1990. This book inspired several of the mazes on this site. You can find several of his mazes on his excellent web site at:

Thanks to Rob Meek for developing the interactive Mazelog Maze Walker.
I'd also like to thank my son Luke for testing each new maze I design and providing an estimate of how difficult it is.
