Solve the Ice Palace Maze

First get to the entrance to the Ice Palace (2s, w from the starport). Then
enter the Ice Palace and you will be greeted by a Wise man. The task is as
follows, you need to navigate through a maze and find the exit before one
hour passes.

There is a torch you can use to provide some more light, and you can read the
note with instructions to learn how to navigate:

To navigate the Ice Palace Maze, use the following commands:

  789 | 'move <back/forward>'  -> 2 = <move back>, 8 = <move forward>
  456 | 'turn <left/right>'    -> 4 = <turn left>, 6 = <turn right>
  123 | 'turn <hleft/hright>'  -> 1 = <turn hleft>, 3 = <turn hright>
  0   | <turn around>          -> 5 = <turn around>
      | 'strafe <left/right>'  -> 7 = <strafe left>, 9 = <strafe right>
      | <map>                  -> 0 = <map>
      | 'screen <small/medium/large>'  - Adjust the size of the display
      | 'stride <1-5>'                 - Change how far you travel per move
      | <fmap>                         - Use 25 FP to get a focus map

Your goal is to reach the exit before an hour passes.

The maze is fairly large (a 75x75 grid), but you can use the mini-map to
gradually map the whole thing and copy it down to grid paper so you can find
the route through.

Another strategy is to follow the wall on the right-hand side, it is not the
optimal route, but it will get you through the maze.

You can choose whether you want to play this in the 'Wolfenstein 3D' style, or
like an old-style rpg like 'Might and Magic'. If you prefer the latter, set
<stride> to 5 and use the 90 degree hard turns; keys <1> and <3>.

With default settings ('Wolfenstein 3D' style) you have to move several times
to traverse one grid, and to turn around 360 degrees you have to turn 32 times
in the same direction. You can use <turn around> to conveniently turn around
180 degrees. It is recommended to use the numeric keypad to play since you need
to issue a LOT of commands.

Once you get to the exit and walk through it, you will be rewarded with the 
mini, and if you manage to get through the maze fast (below 15 mins), you
will be one third of the way to get an adornment later.

** If you have completed the maze earlier, you can skip ahead to the next part
   at any time by typing <chamber>.
If you're impatient there is a map of the maze here.
The next mini in the Mindfulness Trilogy is Towers of Tusbix.
