Mouse Trap - 20081999120000 by Shadow Lord
Game:Mouse TrapCompany:Exidy
Type:PlatformPlayers:1-2

When a game gets very, very popular, it enjoys several incarnations. The incarnations can fall into three categories: a sequel, a spin-off, or a "me-too." The "Me-too" category is the most pathetic: this is when a game tries to copy a rival company's success with their own version, which never strays far from the original, in both concept and gameplay.
Quite frankly, I've never seen a "me-too" product that ever was worth looking at. Mouse Trap is no exception: it is a pitiful Pac-Man "me-too" that was seeking its audience from the Pac-Man enthusiasts.
In this game, you are a mouse gobbling up cheese while the ghosts-- er, sorry, I mean CATS, are trying to corner you and kill you. However, you can turn the tables and turn into a dog (by eating a dog biscuit) and gobble down the cats for a limited time. This game doesn't even try to hide the fact it is a cheap clone. The graphics are far, far inferior to the game that inspired it, the sound does not work, and the special effects aren't very special. I could ride this game into the ground some more, but I'm in a Christmas spirit and will spare it my truckload of further criticisms, but this is another one that's gonna get the SHADOW LORD CURSE:
"May this rom fester in the corners of an unknown hard drive, never seeing the light of day, and may the player of this game be evil enough to deserve the torture he will receive at the hands of this rom!"
