In the Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy, it turns out that the entire while that human-beings thought they were carrying out their experiments on mice, the mice were actually experimenting on them. Mousebot is about one such mouse who escapes from a cat laboratory. Running frantically through a maze designed to destroy him, he must try and avoid getting killed because dying is not very pleasant. The third person view makes the game really interesting as you control the mouse from just behind it and follow it as it tries to dodge the ingeniously created graters and pounders.
The levels are quite amazing and there are new twists and turns in each one. Chunks of food are placed all across each level and also in mousetraps. One will fill your belly and the other will make you disintegrate into mere parts. There is variety in the landscapes as well, and the themes for these range from a desert to a pristine white laboratory. The mouse character can be upgraded and customized. The aim is to eat as many pieces of cheese without getting killed. Which is what all of us are trying to do in life as well. You might actually feel like the protagonist who just wants to escape but is stopped by a world bent on killing him.
Apart from the philosophical musings this game might send you on, there is always a lot of fun to be had simply from playing it. The graphics are cartoon-like and smooth and an absolute delight to look at. The controls are simple to get but the booby traps are hard to get past. There is even a little story about your mousebot narrated through cutscenes in the middle of the game. The game feels pretty detailed for a mobile game and has enough content to suffice for even a smaller desktop game. All of these reasons mean that you simply must try out MouseBot for yourself.
