    1) Go to wotsit.org. They have the file formats of all the major file types used today.

    2) Well you just display the maze on screen, and keep track of the location of your character. Have a list of coordinates on the screen where they can not go (i.e. The Maze wall). When they press a key, run a quick, inline function to see if it's possible for them to go there. If it's not, don't let them. If it is, make the appropriate move.

    You obviously didn't bother to look hard since both of these answers can be found on this very web site.
