"A cheesy but satisfying chase for your QB hunger"
Being a mouse, nothing
would sound more satisfying to you right now then a hunk of cheese. And
there are plenty of pieces of cheese hanging around in the house, you just
have to scurry around to find them. But just when you think you've got
the whole thing figured out, the houseowners have bought some cats. The
result is a classic cat versus mouse chasing game. Do you have what it
takes to overcome level after level of cheese catching?
The use of animation and visual effects to stimulate the senses
||Mousey is made up of ASCII graphics, so
no graphic score applies.
The smooth blend of atmospheric sounds and original harmonies
||Cats and mice may squeak and purr, but
in Mousey the animals chase in silence.
|Gameplay (n.)The precision of control
and involvement of character within its universe
|Mousey is a cat-and-mouse game. The cats
run around the house randomly as long as you're hiding safely within each
of the level's mouseholes. Then, when you're visible, the cats home in

much to hand in terms of story points.
|Replay Value (n.)
The timelessness of the gamer's delight, such that the experience
can be repeated again and again
|The gameplay is pretty innovative, but
the ASCII graphics hurt Mousey's score.
To strike the mental nerve in such a way as to stimulate human thought
|Mousey's high point. This game's pretty
hard at first! You have to get used to the fact that the mouse isn't so
fast, and the game is especially difficult if you adjust the game's options
so that four cats are running around the house instead of just one.
|Fun Factor (n.)
The overall entertainment value as maintained throughout the adventure
||You know what? The idea for this game
is pretty cool, it's just that I felt that Mousey was a little underdeveloped
as a game. It's a lot like the Microsoft Windows Cat and Mouse game that
used to be bundled up in those fun packs with Freecel, Minesweeper, and
Solitaire. It's just that this game in particular needs some bells and
