Amazing Maze  

After Gotcha! from Atari released in 1973, Amazing Maze is the second maze arcade game.

The idea is quite simple. The computer draws a different maze for each game. There are only two exits, left and right. Left player must reach the right exit before the right player reach the left exit. The first one to exit wins the game.

Though the graphics and principle are quite unsophisticated, the gameplay is excellent and very surprising for such an early game. It's really a very good 2-player game (it's also possible to play against the system).

Inevitably, Amazing Maze inspired many other maze games and can be considered the father many many video games.
