Polar Maze

To illustrate the flexibility of the Maze object, introduced on the previous page, we use it here to generate a maze with a circular layout. This "Polar" maze converts the 1-d abstract cell addresses to something like polar coordinates.

The walls are colored using the same method used in the Phyllotaxy movie. You'll see new colors (and a new maze) each time you press the die button.

There is an interactive version of this maze here, in my fun & games area.
