The depth-first algorithm clearly gives a different kind of maze than the other algoritms, resulting in lots of rooms with only two doors and only a very few rooms with four doors. It is obvious that this will lead to a high average distance between two rooms. However, note that the algorithm 'Random' and 'Trees', which are rather similar with respect to the types of rooms they have, yet have a different average distance. The name 'Trees' refers to the fact that the walls grow like trees from the sides, which make that the rooms in the center have short connections to the rooms further away. I have no simple explaination for the fact that the number of rooms with more doors are lower for all algorithms compared to the 'ideal' distribution. I also have not yet found an algorithm that generates mazes that on average are closer to the ideal numbers.
