INSTRUCTIONS: To begin type GO, or if you prefer to see some examples to help you get started type HELP. The goal is to reach the end of the maze by solving the clues along the way. As in a traditional ladder, every adjacent word has exactly one letter changed from any adjacent word such as LIKE -> BIKE -> BAKE -> RAKE -> TAKE, but only one path will eventually lead to the end, so hurry. If you reach a square adjacent to the finish and would like to continue to explore tha maze before finishing, do so first as answering the question adjacent to the finish will cause the game to end, watch for the warning in the bottom right corner - or obviously you can just start again with a fresh clock and explore more leisurely. Good luck and enjoy.

I thought kind might work for the "temperate; gentle" clue as well. I might be alone in this, but maybe consider changing it to something less ambiguous?
Apr 8th, 2011 at 05:01 GMT
@crazylegs: Thanks, I have changed the clue.
Apr 8th, 2011 at 06:20 GMT
For some reason when you type in "tell" it gives you the "deed" clue, but "tell" isn't an actual answer in the quiz.
Apr 8th, 2011 at 06:32 GMT
When testing this I realized that tell was at least arguably a possible answer for that clue - which I'm assuming is why you typed it - and as it proved to be difficult to write the clue to exclusively mean the word I was looking for I reluctantly decided to include it as an alternate.
Apr 8th, 2011 at 06:47 GMT
"Gone" works for "finished" as well.
Apr 8th, 2011 at 13:44 GMT
I realize that you were trying to include "tell" as an alternate, but what I meant was that the actual answer doesn't come up when you type it, so you see "high in stature," then answer it, then you see "speak," then put in "tell" and "deed" appears, but the actual answer for "speak" doesn't.
Apr 8th, 2011 at 13:44 GMT
adding tell as an alternate answer doesn't help as you end up trying to carry on the word ladder from the word tell rather than talk, get rid of tell as an answer to avoid any confusion

I like the title up there in the address bar.

I should've searched before making my "Word Laddyrinth 3"...sporcle didn't tell me there were any more similar quizzes beyond the two that have been featured on the frontpage. Obviously I'm behind! I had fun reverse engineering your quiz design, but I bow to the master - I could never equal twelve!
Apr 8th, 2011 at 20:00 GMT
@AdmiralMaxxtreme: OOPS, I had added it to each adjacent square and completely forgot to put it in for talk....that's a pretty bad mistake, thanks. @fizxwestcott: I didn't even realize anyone else had made one, I'm glad that I finally get to play one!

what's "suspender's alt" supposed to mean?
Sep 14th, 2011 at 10:04 GMT
I'm getting better with each one I play... glad that you've made so many! I love doing them!

Probably my favorite part about this quiz is the fact that David Bowie from "Labyrinth" is the front-page picture. Awesome reference!
Apr 30th, 2012 at 08:07 GMT
The first labyrinth I have actually enjoyed. Possibly because I've only just worked out how they work. I really, really liked it!
Apr 30th, 2012 at 09:11 GMT
Deed and task are nowhere close to synonymous. Other than that good quiz. And I eagerly await the barrage of thumbs down that come with pointing out a flaw in a quiz.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 10:30 GMT
@Maxmallanite: I thumbed you up, because that was were I was totally stumped. I certainly vote for a different clue. 'Deed' makes me think of either Boy Scouts or a document for proof of property.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 11:23 GMT
I tried every four letter work I could think of that would be synonymous with Twilight: CRAP, SUCK, JOKE, etc. Then I realized the clue was not capitalized, and I got DUSK.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 11:27 GMT
Like the above 'Deed' is a dud clue as far as I'm concerned. Perhaps 'an undertaking' or 'assignment' would make more sense.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 11:47 GMT
Good fun, but got totally stuck on 'fuse metal'. Copper, no. Iron, no? What blooming metal goes in a fuse?.... Oh, I see. *DanUK is an idiot*
Apr 30th, 2012 at 14:40 GMT
Apr 30th, 2012 at 16:04 GMT
There is no logical way to get task from deed. Need to change that clue.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 17:43 GMT
"chore" would have been the mot juste, I think.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 18:28 GMT
So my dirty mouth and typing ineptitude helped me finish this quiz in under 10 seconds on a ridiculous fluke. Thanks 'duck'! Alright, now to do this thing properly.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 18:52 GMT
@MaxMallanite- After failing to find the answer I came to the comments to see if I was the only one.
Apr 30th, 2012 at 19:36 GMT
"Two plus three, well that's an easy one to start with" I thought "Four..."
Apr 30th, 2012 at 22:16 GMT
One comment gets all sorts of points for saying what a lousy clue "deed" was for "task," while others get voted down for the same comment? I really admire the creators of these laddyrinths, but while they don't need to be totally straightforward with their clues, they do need to play fair and make sure the clues make sense. And as long as I'm being a jerk here, it's "lie" in the sun, not "lay," despite what many people say in conversation. Grammar is not the chief concern of sporclers, but when you put something in print or online, make it right.
May 1st, 2012 at 00:09 GMT
It's a clue, not a synonym. How easy do you people need everything to be? Deed and task are plenty close enough. Bunch of whiners.
Comment below threshold:

I beat it in one second.

@turqbob I think you had some help from the final answer lol
May 2nd, 2012 at 18:02 GMT
@DanUK What always makes these tricky is when you misinterpret a clue, especially when the clue is both a noun and a verb (or noun and adjective, or verb and adjective). Such is the case with "fuse metal."
May 2nd, 2012 at 21:44 GMT
i did it in 1 second
May 19th, 2012 at 21:01 GMT
The clue "labyrinth" should be changed to "laddyrinth".
May 26th, 2012 at 22:59 GMT
"Lie" in the sun..... although "laying" would be fun if you had suntan lotion.

just type in luck
