Brief Play Description: 

Move your Fire Sprite to the center of the maze by combining the color of your Sprite and the color of the Ouroboros to pass colored doorways.
The Ouroboros changes through three colors in each cycle: Red, Yellow, and Blue.
The Fire Sprite must navigate to the Ouroboros Egg in the center of the lair before the Ouroboros has completed its rebirth cycle.
"Journey Flames" along the path grant the Sprite the power to pass doorways; by passing through a Journey Flame, it inherits the color of the Flame. The doorways in the lair respond to a Flame differently, depending on the Ouroboros's color within the cycle. The center of the circle within the Ouroboros will indicate, in real time, which doors can be opened at any given time.
The Sprite may pass a doorway when its color combined with the current color in the Ouroboros's cycle create one of the following combinations:

Red portion of Ouroboros + Red Fire Sprite = Passage through Green Doors
Yellow + Yellow = Passage through Purple Doors
Blue + Blue = Passage through Orange doors
Red + Yellow = Passage through Orange Doors
Red + Blue = Passage through Purple Doors
Yellow + Blue = Passage through Green Doors

The colors are based on minimal color theory, representing the primary, secondary, and complimentary colors within the game.
>the combination of two of the same colors allows passage through its complimentary-colored doors, while the combination of two different primaries allows for passage through the corresponding mixed, secondary color.

When a Sprite reaches the egg, the Ouroboros's life is extended, and the Sprite may move on to warm the next egg.
>the rebirth cycle is 9 revolutions

|| Open space - Sprites may move through these passages.
* Journey Flame - Sprites may pass through these spaces to change color.
o Door - Sprites may pass through these when their color and the color of the Ouroboros combined match the color of the door.
x Ouroboros Egg - When a Sprite reaches this point, the Ouroboros's life is extended and the Sprite may move on to warm the next egg.
