Perplex City is in danger! Over the past few days, everyone who has entered the Mimasan Maze has disappeared. You are young, intelligent and ready for action, as long as it doesn't involve zombies... or lemons. They always give you the willies. At the deserted maze's entrance, your first choice presents itself: will you take the tunnel route (Chapter I), head up the ladder (Chapter XIV), or go down the eerily dark slide (Chapter IV)?

You wander down into the tunnel expecting it to be a dank, miserable place - only to find a wonderfully carved passageway with lush, velveteen carpet. At the end of the tunnel you see a massive, wooden door and a smaller door to the left of it. Attached to the large door, a typed note says "Yjr ntsbr hp dytsohjy pm"; while the small door has a piece of paper tacked to it with "Nubuiba fi eiybs rgw ausw". Remembering those boring Earth technology classes, will you pass through the large door (Chapter X) or the small door (Chapter V)?

You decide it's unfair just to laugh at this man - you shuold probably help him too. It's time to pull out your signature dish, 'Oeufs brouillés sur le pain grillé'. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any bread around, so the result of your cooking is a bowl of scrambled eggs. What do people expect from such an ill-equipped kitchen? You are an artiste and cannot work in these conditions-or so you tell yourself anyway. The man asks if you wouldn't mind taking the food through while he tangos with a saucepan. Do you do as he asks (Chapter XVI) or tell him no, not unless you can have his jester's outfit too (Chapter XXI)?

You leg it to the nearest group of people and quickly wrench the jester's hats from their heads. "Run free!" you shout. They don't react, and continue to climb the human pyramid. You realise that their source of power isn't actually their hats. Noticing an infidel in his midst, the monster captures you and puts you under his spell, cursed to dance forever. And you don't even know the hand jive! Woe is you. The moral of this story is: 'Don't make assumptions, or you might find yourself under the curse of a monster who will not let you stop dancing.'
