Your objective is to reach the exit of the mazes and to do this you will have to get through the arena which can be quite large sometimes and you will have to avoid the water that keeps running into the maze. You will be able to block its way from advancing towards the exit and catch you from behind, but you will still have to move fast if you want to save the maximum amount of ground for the maximum amount of points.
