    Number Maze

    Your task is to move from the top left square to the goal square by moving vertically or horizontally the number of squares indicated by the square you land on. Having done so, provide the sum of all the numbers in the squares landed on including the red square.

    I make it <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">40</span hide>, by visiting squares with the numbers <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">5, 4, 4, 3, 3, 2, 2, 3, 4, 1, 3, 4, 2</span hide>
