This is another of the "exploration" mazes that just takes too much time to mess with. You can't get killed, and there is no time limit, so you're pretty much guaranteed to get the high score on this level. But, for the sake of completeness, here's how it's done:

Explorers: Keep turning left and pounding the walls until the first chip. Then move back to the start and pound the right-hand walls until you're done. In some ways this is easier because you'll be able to see the walls once you pound on them.

Cheaters: You have seven chips. Start out L4 D2 R2 D4 R4 D2 L2 D2 L2 U2 L2 U2 L2 D2 to the first chip. Then back out U2 R2 D2 R2 D2 R2 U2 R2 U2 L4 U4 L2 U4 (past the starting point) R2 U4 R4 D2 L2 D2 R4 D4 R2 to the second chip. Then L2 U6 R2 D4 R2 D6 R3 D6 L3 D2 R3 D2 L2 D L2 U L U4 to the third chip. Now retrace your steps D4 R D R2 U R2 U2 L3 U2 R3 U6 L3 U6 L2 U4 L2 D2 L4 U2 R2 U2. Now move R6 D2 R3 U2 L U2 L4 U4 to the fourth chip. Then back out D4 R4 D2 R D2 L3 U2 L10 (past the detour for chips 2 & 3) D2 L4 D4 L2 U2 L4 D2 R2 to the fifth chip. Move out L2 U2 R4 D2 R2 U4 L8 U4 R2 U2 L2 U2 R4 D2 R2 U2 R4 D2 R8 D2 to the sixth chip. Again, retrace some of your steps U2 L8 U2 L4 D2 L2 U2 L4 D2 R2 D2 L2 D2 and then L2 D12 to the last decision point. Move L2 D6 R2 D2 L2 D3 R2 U to get the seventh (and final) chip and back D L2 U3 R2 U2 L2 U6 R2. Then head for the exit D4 R4 D4 R2 D3 R2 U3 R4 U2 R2 D5 L2 U L2 through the chip socket) and DOWN and OUT!
