The legend of the cheese

Legend of The cheese

You are a mouse, who snuck in to a house to find food, but the house is full of traps, and there is a cat. Navigate the livingroom by jumping on furniture and going through mouseholes and collect all the cheese. Use various items to bypass the traps and obtain the cheese without damage.

I'm a sucker for small characters in environments that look enormous. The game works fine and I really like how the cat looks.

It's alright, an attempt at something that could be fun. I like platformers like this, but it's just kind of overwhelming. The graphics could definitely use some love.

I highly enjoyed the gameplay even though the graphics could definitely be improved. Thanks for adding the walking animation, most of the games on LD #37 really lack it :)

What a cute little game.

Reminds me of the 1984 game Alley Cat, similar theme and gameplay.

Cute game. I encountered a bug where I collected 2 new lifes and was at 3, got hit by the cat and lost 2 lifes. I think it's a bug at least. If you want to communicate to the player on what he can walk you could give different colors to i.e. the table so he knows what he can collide with.

The mouse animation and music make it so cute, well done!

I for one like the art style. But I don't really like the frequent leaps of faith and I think the sounds are not very well "mixed". Some seem louder than they should be/than the others.

I think the art is actually pretty fitting, although some parts could be slightly improved. In some cases, it didn't seem like there was a good way to set off a trap. However, I did think it was a fun little game.
