Written back in 2018 for Scene World Magazine, comes a quality fun diamond collecting maze game by TND Games. 

You are Frederik the yellow ball. A cute little hero in this game. He is trapped inside a maze of mines, full of diamonds, and 4 deadly spiders. Your quest is to simply help Fred pick up all of the mines in 16 different mazes and survive. You will only have 3 lives to start with, but luckily there is help at hand. At the start of each level, or a loss of a life, you will be given temporary protection from the spiders. Each spider moves only in a straight direction from one web to another. Then it will decide which way it will move next in a random fashion.

Sadly you won't be able to escape the mines, due to the entrances being completely sealed up. However, if you pick up all of the diamonds. You will automatically leave one mine and move over to another. You will be faced yet more spiders and probably some additional good or nasty surprises. If you complete the 16th mine. You will be set free.
