The LIACS Maze difficulty study

What makes a maze difficult?

Have you ever asked yourself which parts in a maze were easy?
Ever wondered what made one maze harder than the other?

Try completing one or more of the following mazes.
As you complete each maze, data is logged that will help me
determine how humans solve mazes. This data can be used
to devise more difficult maze algorithms.
Many games, for instance, use these to generate worlds.

By september 20th 2015, I will post the results here.
The more mazes you can complete, the better the results of the study,
so please, for science and gaming, do as many as you can!
Thanks for your time, and have fun!
