The simple (and lazy) solution is of course, to have the program simply
follow the left-wall all the way to the exit...
Actually, I was also wondering... would giving the 'mouse' that was in
the maze, some idea of how far it was from the exit (or perhaps cheese),
in units or some other measurement, improve the situation any? Or would
it end up with the AI simply trying to butt it's way through a wall...:
