"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?

Graphics (n.)
The use of animation and visual effects to stimulate the senses
N/A Mousey is made up of ASCII graphics, so no graphic score applies.
Sound/Music (n.)
The smooth blend of atmospheric sounds and original harmonies
N/A 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 vv
(Very Good)
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 to you and they start running in. There's a lot of scampering involved in this game; if you're a fan of Microsoft's Nibbles game then you'll really key in Mousey's gameplay.
Story (n.)
The creativity and presentation of the game's critical plot
Cat versus mouse? It's a typical Tom and Jerry plot that we've seen since the early 20th century, so there's not 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. 
Challenge (v.)
To strike the mental nerve in such a way as to stimulate human thought and reflexes
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
(Very Poor) 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 whistles.
