So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

Stu:-

Jenshin:-
That is one of the most simplistic yet complicated things I've ever seen. Awesome.

JHONY ME LAS LAVO:-

Just FYI - I've never had firefox crash on me before this. I "played the game" twice - crashing into walls both times, but the moment I put my cursor back on the game (with the "you failed" thing) firefox crashed. This happened twice and it didnt give me a specific error message.

Stu:-
Must be your set up. The puzzle has been attempted thousands of times by visitors with FF with no report back that it caused problems. I have tested it hundreds of times during development with no prolem. What O/S are you using?

Hi.
Using Firefox 1.0, there is a horizontal wall on the left hand side that behaves badly - i.e. it *appears* to be there (and in fact, draws across as you approach it) but it can be moved through. As you move through it, it disappears as expected. Minor niggle though, all in all pretty clever. Well done you.
(23.11.2004, 18:11)

Stu:-
Colin, ummm.... the wall that is not a wall is meant to be there to fool people into thinking that the way is blocked. Hence the comment that all is not what it appears.

bvt:-
cool, esp at the end, where you unlearn.

vivitron:-
Click, drag, and drop! Never thought I'd see it in css :)
(01.01.2005, 21:23)

Dom:-
Amazing.

I won both ways, correctly and incorrectly :)

Mike K Sweden:-
Made it in second try.
(28.02.2005, 04:31)

another option to cheat is to place the mouse right below the star, at the height of the "Another first..." line, and scroll up with the mouse wheel.
You then find yourself over the star. Move the mouse a little, and you win.
(06.03.2005, 13:45)

Stu:-
There are many ways to cheat, for instance place the mouse at the lower right hand corner and move it quickly left towards the star will avoid wall detection (if you are quick enough). BUT this is not the point of the exercise. My intention was to show just what css is capable of and to inspire you to go that bit further and experiment. A bit of lateral thinking is all that is needed.
(07.03.2005, 14:43)

nrl:-
another cheat is to place another window over your browser and then move the mouse from that window to the maze, when the browser gains focus you get to jump to whatever part of the maze your cursor is at :->

Very cool CSS stuff on your site btw, nice work!
(21.03.2005, 23:46)

MX:-
I only just stumbled across this by chance, it was linked up on newstoday.com congratulations for having one of the most inspiring CSS sites I have ever seen. I will be pointing everyone who asks me to help with their CSS at your site!!
(28.03.2005, 12:49)

Gaz:-
That's genius! Truly inspirational, time to give box models another go.
(22.04.2005, 15:20)

Johnny X:-
I think that was deliberate?
(26.12.2005, 22:41)

Matti:-
Man that maze's great! :D
All hail to CSS! ^_^
(01.04.2006, 16:12)

richter:-

(04.04.2006, 21:37)

bryd:-

(24.05.2006, 03:02)

al:-

(17.06.2006, 03:54)

cybersteve:-
damn, that took me forever to figure out i had to cheat :p

awesome coding man, thats great
(01.07.2006, 01:36)

David K.:-
I am amazed. After using CSS daily for four years I thought I'd seen it all, but I was wrong.
(30.08.2006, 14:56)

Flarn:-
another cheat is to put the mouse right next to the star and press F5 to refresh. then get the star.
(01.09.2006, 02:29)

David Mills:-
You can't spell "what"? *******.
(15.12.2007, 02:07)

Stu:-
David, its amazing WOT comments I get. The spelling is intentionally wrong :)
(15.12.2007, 08:06)

Colin's a moron.:-
Yeah, hi Colin. You're a ******* idiot. That's supposed to happen - hence the line "Things are not always what they seem." God you're so dumb. And Firefox 1.0? You know now THREE is coming out. Ugh.
(25.12.2007, 21:15)

Ben Beare:-
or you can enter in the in bit of the maze then hold left click so a circle with a line through it comes up then move next to the star and let go then you appear there.
(05.02.2008, 12:36)

PGold:-
There's a bug on the second to last "fake" wall. It disappears when you're on the space 1 over from where it should be. Then when you move to the proper space it re-appears but you can still move through it.
(14.04.2008, 10:15)

Bukhari1986:-
Great thing man
(03.08.2009, 10:03)

kandarp:-
If you move faster directly to star,then you will win...
