You’re a mouse, right, and you like cheese. You crave it. So, in this game you travel around finding the cheese that’ll keep you happy. Of course, there are baddies to avoid along the way.
The controls are nice and easy – tap the left half or the right half of the screen to move in that direction. Tap the mouse itself to make it jump. During the game the mouse encounters objects it can jump on, barrels, boxes, fencing, erm, traffic cones, erm, flying birds. Tap it and it’ll jump onto these. Well, you’d jump if some giant finger came along and tapped you.
There are also nasty pointy things to be avoided at all costs as they sap the mouse of energy. This being a time based game, there are time rewards if you are nimble.
The design style is lovely with a very clearly cartoonish appearance and the mouse itself is suitably buck toothed and beguiling. There are great sound effects too including a very nice if somewhat predictable boing. Or rather boi-oi-oi-oing.
On the face of it this looks like a game for youngsters, but you’ll need to be quite precise with your jumping around to succeed and it could frustrate some younger players. It’s quite annoying to have to restart a whole level at the beginning when you fail, too, but that’s the nature of these games.
THE BOTTOM LINE
A nice take on a very old fashioned idea, but you need precise control to succeed
