"A Hint of Life" was a game printed in the British Star Trek Annuals for 1979 and 1986. It was a maze accompanied with an in-universe description.

Description

While scanning the planet Rheel for signs of life, Captain Kirk comes across this picture of a small island in the middle of the planet's largest ocean...

Summary

As the USS Enterprise orbits Rheel, Kirk and Spock observe maze-like patterns on an island. Kirk sees random mosaics, possibly a result of volcanic activity, water and wind. Spock speculates that they could be remains of roads and buildings left by an extinct civilization. Kirk believes that Spock would be right if they could find a direct route between peninsulas at either end of the island.
