You are the famous explorer Indiana Jones, or Lara Croft, take your pick. You are exploring

the ruins of the dungeons beneath King Lockumup IV the Good’s castle in Flatlandia. Of

course, the dungeon layout is two-dimensional (like your character), East-West and Up-Down

in this case, in a regular grid.

level 0            -R-R-R-R-R-R-R-R-R-

level 1   <- West  -R-R-R-R-R-R-R-R-R- East ->

Depths of Despair

“R” indicates a room. “-” indicates an east-west passageway. “|” indicates an up-down passageway.

Because it is rough going in the passageways between the rooms (there has been no dungeon

maintenance for centuries), it is frequently easier to travel through a passageway in a

particular direction than in the opposite direction. Each room has four passageways leaving

in the directions East (right), West (left), Up, and Down which lead to adjacent rooms

(except the Down in the bottom-most rooms, the East in the east-most rooms, and the West in

the west-most rooms, which have dead-end passageways due to ancient budget cuts, and Up in

the topmost rooms which lead to the surface). The time it takes to travel through a

passageway from a given room to the adjacent rooms is given in four String[]s depending on

your direction of travel. A digit between 0 and 9 indicates how many time units (in the

local system of decimillifortnights, dmfs) are taken to leave the room in that direction

and travel through the passageway to the adjacent room. An ‘x’ character indicates that the

travel in that direction is too difficult and can not be done. The dead end passageways

(at the edges of the dungeon) have time values, or ‘x’, specified (because they were in the

original plans for the dungeon and we have an old map), but we can not actually travel

through these passageways in this problem. The dungeon does not wrap in any direction

(you are probably thinking of the castle of Queen Mobius the One Sided, the former


In other words, if you are in room (i,j), where i is the up-down level and j is your

easting (ie. how far east you are) coordinate, then

  • up[i][j] tells how many dmfs it takes to get to (i-1,j).

  • down[i][j] tells how many dmfs it takes to get to (i+1,j).

  • east[i][j] tells how many dmfs it takes to get to (i,j+1).

  • west[i][j] tells how many dmfs it takes to get to (i,j-1).

If it is obvious to you how these four directional time value arrays map to a directed

graph of the dungeon, then skip this next section of the problem description, which goes

into detail, and continue reading below for more of the important problem description


*For example if given the inputs up and west (shown below)

up = {"123",      west = {"222",

"111",              "131",

"121"}              "444"}

You would have the following time values for each passageway while going up or west.


1 2 3

level 0            2R2R2R-      Up and West going

1 1 1       Passageway times

level 1      West  1R3R1R- East

level 2            4R4R4R-

The dead-end passageways on the far west with times {2, 1, 4} are useless and can be


Similarly if you have the inputs down and east (shown below)

down = {"987",      east = {"222",

"111",              "3x3",

"121"}              "111"}

You would have the following time values for each passageway while going down or

Depths of Despair

The dead-end passageways on the far east with times {2, 3, 1} and the very bottom

with times {1, 2, 1} are also useless to you and can be ignored.

We are back from the boring details, here is some more important information.

Unfortunately for you, Dr. Jones or Dr. Croft, you have just triggered an ancient trap, and

the dungeon is beginning to to fill with water. First the lowest level fills with water.

If the East-West width of the dungeon is n rooms, then each level of the dungeon takes n

decimillifortnights to fill. Once full of water, the rooms on that level are no longer

accessible. While partly full of water, they are still fully accessible. Time starts at

time = 0, at time = n the lowest level becomes inaccessible, at time = 2n the second lowest

level becomes inaccessible, etc. So if you are in, or pass through, a room on the lowest

level at time >= n, you are dead.

For simplicity, we will only consider if the room is completely filled with water when you

enter. So if you leave a nearly filled room, going up through a slow passageway, and arrive

somewhat later in a now nearly filled room one level up, this is ok. We will ignore the

physics which would lead us to think the passageway would fill with water before the room

above it. Only check for drowning when you enter the room. Also the surface (above level 0)

never fills with water (we run out of water before then), so you can not drown on the


Your goal is to get to the surface as fast as possible. You start at the location

(startLevel, startEasting). “Easting” is how far east you are in the local coordinate

system. Rooms have Easting coordinates between 0 and n-1 inclusive, where n is the number

of rooms on each level. Return the number of time units (decimillifortnights) it takes to

escape, or -1 if escape is impossible.

For example:

up = {"0x4",  down = {"0x9",   east = {"1x9",   west = {"0x9",

"0x3",          "009",           "0x9",           "0x0",

"0x3"}          "0x9"}           "009"}           "009"}

startLevel = 2, startEasting = 2

We start in the lower right corner. If water were not an issue, we could reach each of the

various rooms with various paths, and the earliest possible times in which we could reach

each room are shown below. If we go straight up, the passageways take 3, 3 and 4 dmfs

reaching the surface in 10 dmfs. We could also follow the path: up (3 dmfs), west (0 dmfs),

down (0 dmfs), west (0 dmfs), up (0 dmfs), up (0 dmfs), and up (0 dmfs) reaching the

surface in 3 dmfs. The diagram below shows the minimum time in which we could first get to

each room (if water were not an issue), and the passageways used are shown with ‘|’ for

up-down, and ‘-‘ for east-west.

3  10      - surface

|   |  -------------

3-4 6      - level 0

|   |

3 3-3      - level 1

| | |

3-3 0      - level 2

But since level 2 fills with water at time 3, we can not move from (1,1) down to (2,1) at

time = 3 dmfs. The actual rooms we can reach, considering flooding, are shown below, where

‘w’ represents a room which is full of water when we first could move into it, and ‘x’

represents a room we can never reach:

10      - surface

|   ------------

x w-6      - level 0


x 3-3      - level 1

| |

x w 0      - level 2

In this example we can reach the surface in 10 dmfs by going straight up, and this is the

minimum, so return 10.


There are many test cases!In each test case,the first line contains two interger numbers n,m.Then next discirble the roms.up,down,east,west are all n*m elements.at last two numbers are startLevel and startEasting.

-up, down, east and west have the same constraints, only up is described.

-up will contain between 1 and 50 elements inclusive.

-each element of up will contain between 1 and 50 characters inclusive.

-each character in each element of up will be a digit between ‘0’ and ‘9’ inclusive or ‘x’.

-up, down, east and west will all have exactly the same number of elements in each.

-All elements of up, down, east and west will contain the same number of characters.

-startLevel will be between 0 and (the number of elements in up) - 1 inclusive.

-startEasting will be between 0 and (the number of characters in up[0]) - 1 inclusive.


output the number of time units (decimillifortnights) it takes to escape, or -1 if escape is impossible.
