finite maze solving algorithm

I was wondering if anyone knows if all possible topologies of finite
2d mazes can be solved by a finite algorithm. For example, we know
that all fully connected mazes can be solved by picking a wall and
exhaustively following it. Can a general solution work for all mazes
including the ones that are piecewise disconnected? If this is
possible, is the general solution a solved problem?
