Maze Wars (aka "War Games in a Maze" in the game itself) is a 3D shooting game, but only barely. The game looks and plays like other earlier 3D first-person games like the similarly titled Maze War or MIDI Maze. The object is to kill all of the enemies (large rotating triangles ...) in each level before finding the exit. Although the documentation tries to market it as a "Virtual Reality" game it's very basic, and the only gameplay consists of shooting triangles and running around a non-texture-mapped maze. There IS a radar which helps you find your targets so that helps prevent you from running around aimlessly. A neat artifact of shareware gaming history (especially given its tiny 29k executable size!) but given that Catacomb Abyss and Wolfenstein 3D were released the same year, it would've been quickly overshadowed by superior games.
