Choose Your Misadventure

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)?

Having come unprepared for snake charming - who knew? - you attempt to woo the snakes by singing to them. "Cows that do arithmetic! Cows that make you drool and lick!" A fine choice. But the snakes don't look happy. In fact, for quite expressionless creatures, they look decidedly displeased. You continue singing, missing notes and humming as your nerves make you forget the words. Okay, now they look mad. It's time for desperate measures. Do you run through the snakes, figuring they're slow and won't be able to follow your lightning legs (Chapter IV); or do you lie on the floor and slither along with them, hoping they won't notice you aren't in fact a snake (Chapter VIII)?

This is it, the central chamber. You've come quite a way, yet you feel like you've made no progress at all. Around you, people dressed as jesters cartwheel and jive in some sort of mad ritual and in front of you, you see the orchestrator of it all: a monstrous monstrosity of a monster. Hastily, you try and think what to do before the monster spots you and turns you into one of those dancing loons. Will you run to the people and pull off their jester's hats, surely the source of the spell (Chapter III); or try and insult the monster, hoping he's not quite as monstrous as he looks (Chapter XXI)

Rocking backwards and forwards, you and the snakes perform a small ditty. You leap from foot to foot, leaving the monster in awe at your quite average
