Monster Maze is an Arcade minigame on Mineplex that was released on October 15th, 2015. In Monster Maze, players must navigate through a maze filled with enemies to reach the beacon safe zones.
The minigame, a popular accepted community idea created by players Wurp and Rythen, was originally known as Snow Sprint and was based off of the Snowman maze in the 2014 Christmas Chaos minigame. The name was changed to Monster Maze in order to allow a greater variety of enemies beyond snow- and Christmas-themed mobs.
Players spawn on the center of the map, designated by green clay. When Monster Maze begins, players are given a total of ten seconds to orient themselves to the map. After those seconds are over, the walls around the players fall and the players all try to reach the first safe zone. After that, safe zones will randomly appear on the map, marked by a 3x3 square of green clay and a beacon. After a round is over, when the new safe zone spawns, the beacon from the previous safe zone will disappear, and the safe zone will begin to disintegrate.
Different mobs (varies each map) wander randomly around the map and travel at slow speed. Upon contact with a mob the player will take 2 damage points (1 heart) which they cannot regenerate from, with the exception of players using the Body Builder kit, and a great deal of knockback.
There is a known "exploit" during normal gameplay involving spamming jump while running to go faster. This exploit is allowed.
