Fun little game. The game becomes increasingly more of a maze. I reached level 4. It would definitely help to map out the later levels.

I started this one up years ago and dismissed it, but now that I've taken the time to learn how to play this it's pretty good.

I finished the game today.  It loops to the beginning and the number of enemies increases.  The big points are in the last stage where you can collect various treasures.   There's also a 50,000 point bonus at the end.

The second loop is a pain in the butt as there are no special items to help and those yellow mice are everywhere.  I managed to get to Stage 4 the second time, but died on my way to the Stage 5 door.

That was fun!  This was pretty much the only game I played at the crappy little arcade in the small town where I lived, Summer of '87.  Never got to play it on NES since for some reason they chose not to release it!

I didn't know this was also an arcade game. I wonder why the NES port wasn't released here.
