knossos games Greek Temple by Tim Boester From the entryway to the temple shown in the diagram, your goal is to find a path to the altar, stepping from square to square. For an additional challenge, once at the altar, try to find a way to leave the temple through the entryway. Every square is marked with a symbol. Each time you move from one square to the next, the orientation of the gateways (represented by the bold, black lines between some of the squares) is changed according to the chart. For example, moving from an alpha square to another alpha square changes the gateways, either opening them if they were closed, or closing them if they were open. You can only move to adjacent squares. You cannot move diagonally, jump over squares, or pass through gateways that are closed. The gateways are initially closed.
