    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 colored buttons to alter the maze.

    TRIVIA
    Mousetrap was released in December 1981.

    Mousetrap inspired a catchy hit song by Buckner and Garcia called 'Mousetrap' released on the 'Pac-Man Fever' album.

    Developer credits are found at the beginning of the programming code, at A022:
    COPYRIGHT JUNE 1981 EXIDY INC.
    ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
    LARRY W. HUTCHERSON SR.
    DAVE STAUGAS

    UPDATES
    Revision 4-5: The rounded wall openings were lengthened, making it easier to tell what part is actually solid. However, the solid tileset used for the player's death animation was never changed, so the rounded openings change in size rapidly.
