That was one of Tim's issues, but I might be able to dig it
up.  Scott Stilphen is the guy who noted the similarity to
Telepathy from a paragraph the guy commented on.  He sent a
note to, but I'm not sure if
it was a news bit (think so) or on the WWW Board.

More to the point, has anyone built their own?  Has anyone
reverse-engineered this puppy?  Is anyone selling repros?  :-)

I'm pretty sure it's the exact same game.  At that time the cart
hadn't been opened, or that guy (if there were two) didn't bother.

It's possible Mind Maze was another name for Telepathy, though
if the game IS the one Dan Oliver talked about, Telepathy was
more of a demo and so Mind Maze might be some part of Telepathy,
Telepathy, or something wholly different.  I assume AGH was
referring to Mind Maze as listed in a PR note as opposed to
the ROM being found, though I'd be happy to be proven wrong.  :-)
