New Arrow Jump maze

16th July 2021

I've just designed a new type of maze I call Arrow Jump mazes because it combines features of the classic Arrow Mazes with the fixed-length jumps of Jumping Mazes.

Here's an example:

Start in the top left corner, and move to any cell that the arrow is pointing to; so far this is the same as an arrow maze.

For example, you could move two steps to the rightmost cell.

Your next move must again be in the direction of the arrow you're on, but it must be the same number of steps as the previous move:

Continue in this way, alternately jumping to any cell, and then jumping the length of the previous move, until you reach the goal.

Here's the eight-step solution to this maze:

Here's a fairly hard Arrow Jump maze to solve:
