3D Maze

The classic 3D maze screensaver that shipped with Windows '95 and '98. It randomly moves through a maze with red brick walls, running into various obstacles, each with its own effect on the route, as it searches for the exit. If this screensaver does not render properly, try disabling full-screen mode via the settings menu, then set the Size slider to "Max".

I used to play around with this and the other old school screen savers back in first grade with my friends and we thought we were so cool, this is awesome!

I get the brown rat too, Cooliokid, don't worry.

by Person on July 23, 2017

Every time I see the brown rat, I shake up. Is the brown rat a glitch or is it supposed to be there?

by Cooliokid 956 on May 6, 2017

This was one of my faves from old school Windows, long before High Definition meant anything.

by Amyrakunejo on April 16, 2017

completely beautiful and fully functional. would recommend any of the screensavers on this site as theyre virus-free and functional

by Giu on March 19, 2017

I'm still having the texture glitch problem even after disabling Fullscreen. I'm on Windows 10 with two monitors. I also thought I remembered there being a speed setting on the original screensaver. It moves very fast and it would be nice if I could slow it down a bit.

AWESOME!

The best Windows maze for survive! Maze Win98!😃

by Alex F. on December 4, 2016

Brick texture hadn't loaded so it was just the stone texture with sometimes brick

by ravendawn on November 17, 2016

the windows screen saver is very good .

by Ivan1234 on August 10, 2016

Sometimes the walls will glitch up and fuse with the ceiling unless changed to one of those color-changing fractal patterns. Also, if the brown rat is near one of those floating OpenGL logos, the logo itself can glitch and turn into a larger version of the brown rat for a brief period (less than a second) before turning back into its true form. Even with all of these glitches, it sure brings back memories!

I'm using windows 10, and I don't understand the Instructions

by Christopher Sneider on May 27, 2016

Didn't render properly at first but started working well after following the instructions!

by emedi on May 20, 2016

Great screensaver!
Some issues with the maze settings.

by unknown on March 20, 2016

It's pretty great, though there are some graphical glitches at least for Windows 7 - some textures for the start, special walls and objects, and the walls will glitch out in random ways. The most common one is the ceiling texture overlapping the wall textures, though you can bypass that with any of the animated psychedelic textures used for the ceiling. Regardless, it runs fine and provides a hefty amount of nostalgia for me along with the other classics. I love it.

by Daniel Flores on March 5, 2016

It´s VERY buggy walls have same texture as roof

Screensavers Planet: Try disabling full-screen mode via the Settings panel, then slide the "Size" setting to "Max", as noted in the screensaver description above.

by Slimik on February 4, 2016

I remember this from the first computer I ever owned and loved following it. I think it's a great screen saver. I will rate this based on previous usage.
