You  have entered a threedimensional maze.  This is how  you  get 
out:

First,  ensure  that there is an odd number of  exits.  If  there 
aren't any,  swim up. If you can't swim up then take any exit and 
swim up. Then swim through all the corners (NW, SW, NE ans SE) in 
turn that are open. If you went through all corners, you can swim 
up. This is the way out.

GAMES
SHUTDOWN

Now  the  letters have to be arranged in such an order  that  the 
word 'WATER' appears. Let's say the letters: M.T.Y.U.I are given, 
indicate that you want to change the first one, so type a '1'. To 
make this an 'R',  answer '5' to the second question because  the 
'R' is 5 letters further in the alphabet.  The second letter  has 
to become a 'Y', so type '2' followed by '5' because the 'Y' is 5 
letters further in the alphabet. Two letters are correct now, and 
don't bother about the first one which has changed. Continue this 
until the word 'WATER' is formed.  Here are the letters in  which 
the given letters have to be changed:

1  'R'
2  'Y'
3  'Q'
4  'A'
5  'R'
