The Smokestack Puzzle

You will need to find your way through a maze of ladders, cat-walks and crates in order to reach the top of the smokestack where the notebook is hidden.

After going up the ladder behind Vlad, a maze is randomly selected from among four possible choices.  Find out which maze you’re facing.

1.  Go to the Control Panel by clicking on the life preserver.

2.  Hold down the shift key and click on the help button.

3.  You will see which maze you’re in and you will be on level 1.

This shows that I am on Maze 1, yours may differ.
