Pretty nice little game, it could maybe do with some more levels and sound effects. Also, the dlls are needed to play it. You could put them all in a .zip file and upload that :)

I liked it, I'm not sure where to go or how to speed up but cheese seemed to do that nicely

Solid little game. I would like to have seen some more, but what was there worked nicely.

Nice little game. Gotta love the cheese speed boost. I found it very hard though.
Pretty art though, interetsing decision to make it black & white, reminds of old cartoons.

@kleinzach I know. Personally it would have been cool if there were more levels, but I wanted to fit the theme. More levels = more rooms = no theme. In my first LD, I didn't follow the theme, and it definitely hurt. I agree that there could be more, but I was happy with what I put up. I made the single room look nice.

Pretty cool game!

Took a while to figure out the trick, but I finally got it. Fun little challenge.

CATS ARE OP, PLEASE NERF :p great entry dude and i loved the black and white theme on the graphics

I thought it was okay. Definitely short; I agree with the others. I know you said more levels meant more rooms, thus going outside of the theme, but I feel like more could have been done within the boundaries of the theme to make it longer. Like you go to the finish burrow and then the room changes slightly; this could be done in one room - keeping to the theme - and adding more content to the gameplay.

The graphics for the mouse are pretty cute, and I do like the black-and-white aesthetic overall. The cheese seems a little out of place in this style.

This game also had a pretty interesting control scheme that made it difficult at first to dodge projectiles. I would have liked to have a key pressed to restart the game upon dying/winning rather than having to click the screen.

I like games about mice, that's why I also made a mouse game. enjoyed playing your game was rather fun.

Really fun little game. The controls were not what i expected at first, but once i figured out how the up and down work i found it very intuitive. I think it would be just a touch easier if the mouses speed was increased by just a tiny amount, ( I think its too easy to get caught before you get the second cheese. )

It's definitely cute ^^
I think the choice of using reacing controls for the mouse is interesting, but may I suggest using a traditional 8-way control scheme instead. Still, I do like that you experimented a bit and didn't choose obvious methods. It gives the game some extra character =)

Well done ^^
