I started over, wrote down controls as they appeared on the screen, and have moved along briskly. This is an amusing game. Since I am galloping through now, I infer that Maize may be too easy for people who linger over hair-pullingly difficult puzzles that take weeks to solve which, actually, I do like even when I can't work out the the answers and decide to pretend to myself the problem is my lack of patience.
I've gotten only a few moments past rebuilding Vlady, so maybe the plot and puzzles are about to thicken.
Edited to add: Game did stay simple for another hour or so, however, it just killed me while I was trying to install a fuel rod in the Bob McTavish Commemorative Reactor and I expect it's going to do that several times.
