This is not the only way to solve the game. Many rooms go unexplored. You might want to play around with the game on your own and map out as much as you can. This way, if you get lost, you may be able to find your way quicker. Be careful to follow the directions exactly while in the maze. If you get lost it could take quite a while to get back.
