The music and graphics in this game are frickin' awesome. I can't say the same for the gameplay, as I am sucking hard. Once I figured out what the hell I was doing, I scored lower 🤨 I know items are key, but I feel like I'm crawling to get them. And that effing mouse, aaaaah. The bats almost want to be grabbed. But that mouse 🤬

 

Stage 2 x 10k + 4800 = 24,800

Special Scoring is Level 3 X 10,000 + 9,100 = 39,100. 👍

Played a great game (at least for me) this morning.

 

I don't think I've ever seen level 3 before!  The "birds" are black (bats?) on level 4.  That makes things harder!

 

Not sure if grabbing a comb is -500 or minus 1/2 your points, but they are to be avoided--or my score would have been a little higher.

 

Level 4 * 10,000 + 12,600 = 52,600!

Fakecortex,

 

I know there are some different mazes you can get, but you can exploit the path algorithms to keep the mouse in a useful place, then take advantage of gates closing to trap him.

Grabbing a comb cuts your score in half.

 

Great progress you’re making!!  It can be a tough game to understand at first, but once you get it, it’s awesome.

When you've played the game enough you'll know where the black bats are flying to.  The brown bats return for level seven.

 

Some mazes are tougher than others.  That particular forest maze in that last screen shot has too many places to get trapped.  I didn't think you can influence where the mouse goes.

My Thunder Castle Update: Finally had a decent game, that being said, it should have been better. I had 7 guys left going into level 6, those mean little devils took them all.... 👎

 

 

Level 6 x 10,000 + 22,300 = 82,300
