Mouse Puzzle

Another Dick Smith Wizzard/Creativision that probably was only ever played by me and the 5 other people who had access to that unique console.

I don't love this game, but I just love how neat it is and how it extends the simple sliding puzzle genre. The idea is that you have a mouse that is wandering around the pipes that are laid out on the game board. It's your job to rearrange the tiles/tracks so that the mouse gets to eat all the nice bits around the board. Later levels introduce hazards, typically a cat that also wanders the tracks, and you need to think quickly to keep the mouse away from the cat.

As I said, very clever, and imho, quite difficult to code today (moving cats and mice on moving tiles) and very impressive that it was coded when it was.
