You have to navigate your way around an orienteering course in a maze, as quickly as possible.
Desktop computer or laptop.
For the Junior Weekend we’ve built our own version of Laby. Why? To make it a fairer competition and a bit easier to play!
The game Laby was created by Jarkko Ryyppö, who also created the original Routegadget. This game was originally created in the 1990s so it is a classic! It’s the closest you can get to orienteering on a computer without using Catching Features or Virtual-O.
We definitely recommend that you play some warm-up games before playing the actual stage.
- The compass on the floor is always visible and points “north” (towards the top of the map).
- Whatever you do, stay in contact with the map – it is very, very difficult to relocate!
There is a choice of two courses:
- Large Maze – 40×40 grid
- Medium Maze – 20×20 grid
You’ll be ranked by:
- firstly, which course you complete – everyone who completes Course A will be ranked above those who complete Course B
- then, the total time you take to complete the course
You can play some warm-up games before moving on to the real thing:
- warm-up for Medium
- warm-up for Hard
- random course (a different size each time you click the link)
Ready to Play?
The Maze may take a second to load (especially with a slow internet connection) as it is building a full 3D model, please be patient – it should load. Once the maze appears (It has blue walls), everything should be loaded, and nothing else needs to download. Please remember to click the `Finish` button once you have completed the maze, to upload your time.
You can do both mazes below, the hardest one you complete will count 🙂
You MUST complete this stage by 19:30 BST on Saturday 18th July.
If you have any issues, please contact us.
