Nature of problem:
A sequence of programs which demonstrate the use of object oriented design patterns for the restructuring of Fortran 90/95 software. The programs implement a simple maze game similar to that described in [1].

Solution method:
Restructuring uses versions of the Template, Strategy and Factory design patterns.
