Magic Maze is a simple and low-tech monster-bashing maze game implemented in Ruby using SDL. It was originally inspired by playing Gauntlet II on the Atari ST.


Download it from Rubyforge download section where XO files are available.

Conversion Notes

Changes in game itself

  • Make the "dead-monster-goo" green instead of red, to be more kid friendly.
    • "is it blood? it's not! it is snot!"
  • OLPC keymapping - gamepad keys for in-game play.
  • Speed up fading in/out.
  • Scaling support; Scale up graphics for the OLPC.
    • Linear scaling done manually for sprites; slower but blocky and non-SGE.
  • More command line options for OLPC integration;- volume, fullscreen, scaling etc.

Sugar and XO integration

  • Activity wrapping in Sugar (icon, launcher, etc)
  • Include Ruby/SDL and libs directly.
