Anybody here remember Contraption? A rather whacky but well-designed and very playable platform game, whose most engaging feature was the bizarre graphics.
Obviously a lesson well-learnt by Chris Robson, whose Mouse Trap is a fairly standard platform game raised from the general level of such games by such whacky nasties as grasping hands, fried eggs and flying loo rolls!
The plot involves Marvin the mouse clearing 22 screens of food on his way to a golden chunk of cheese. The game is not too difficult: as usual with such games once you've mastered the art of jumping, worked out the route around screens and plotted the patterns of the nasties then it is just patience and a steady hand.
