About The Game

Mouse Trap is an arcade video game where the player has to control a mouse around the maze to collect cheese while avoiding cats.

Collecting a bone will turn you into a dog in which you can eat the cats. Collect all the cheese to clear the maze. But beware of the hawk who flies over periodically, the mouse and the dog are vulnerable to it. You can also press certain coloured buttons to alter the maze.
