In Atari 2600 Mouse Trap, you take control of a cunning mouse navigating through a complex maze filled with doors, corridors, and cheese bits. As the mouse, your primary goal is to collect all the cheese bits while avoiding the hungry cats that chase you throughout the maze.
To outsmart the pursuing cats, you can open and close doors, altering the maze layout and confusing the feline foes. There are many strategic moves you can make to evade the cats and continue your cheese-collecting journey.
In addition to opening and closing doors, the mouse has another trick up his sleeve: by eating dog bones scattered throughout the maze, he can temporarily transform into a dog. In this form, the tables are turned, and the mouse-turned-dog can chase the cats to earn extra points.
Mouse Trap provides players with a thrilling and strategic gaming experience, challenging them to navigate the ever-changing maze while staying one step ahead of the hungry cats. Will your mouse successfully collect all the cheese and make it through the maze, or will he end up as a tasty treat for the relentless feline pursuers?
