catcha mouse iphone appDo you think you are smarter than a mouse? Catcha Mouse gives you the opportunity to find out.

The object of the puzzle game Catcha Mouse from Odasoft is to prevent the mouse from getting into a mouse hole by blocking his way with mousetraps. You and the mouse each get to make one move at a time. There are over 100 levels, and you can play in easy, medium or hard mode.

Catcha Mouse is both cute and challenging. The cartoonish mouse is adorably odd, with one big eye that bulges out and gives you an angry stare when he is trapped. Keeping the mouse out of the holes is a lot harder than it looks. You will think you have blocked his path to one hole only to realize that you accidentally guided him safely to another hole. The good news is that you get to keep trying until you beat the mouse. The bad news is that there is no answer key if you get stuck.

I personally enjoyed the challenge of re-thinking my strategy when the mouse outwitted me, and at each level (I chose to play medium difficulty) I was able to eventually figure out how to win after at most ten tries. If you give up temporarily, you can pick up where you left off when you return to the game. I did not find an answer key necessary for Catcha Mouse, but for those who need help, I did find plenty of people willing to give tips online on the app’s iTunes feedback pages.

I am not fond of Catcha Mouse’s sound effects, even though they were recently modified to be more appropriate in the latest version. When the mouse wins a round, you are met with mocking canned laughter. You do have the option to turn off the sound in Catcha Mouse.

Overall, I like Catcha Mouse and I plan to keep playing it. Catcha Mouse is fun and thought-provoking, without being frustrating. And everybody likes the satisfaction of catching a mouse.

    I cannot get past level 25! help

  • Vivi

    I cleared all levels- easy to hard, plus the 13 extra levels in just 2 nights! I love Catchamouse!

  • JKT

    OK, Vivi....you're just a wonderful person. You're great. You're a video game god. How about sharing your secret for Hard/14 to prove you're a benevolent god?

  • Vivi

    LOL @ JKT! You, sir, are a gentleman- and I am indeed a Goddess! OK, just kidding. I wasn't trying to brag in my comments last week. I was just psyched about Catchamouse and getting through it. Hard 14 is a doozy, and it took me about 20 times to get it, but this was my solution, and it's my pleasure to share it with anyone who wants it:

    Please note, in my directions below, each column of spaces is referenced as a letter (A, B, C...G). All spaces in each column (whether holes, pre-set traps, or yellow spaces) are numbers. Same way an Excel spreadsheet is labeled.

    Here we go...

    1. C4
    2. E7
    3. C7
    4. C6
    5. D7
    6. F7
    7. G7
    8. G5
    9. F4
    10. E4
    11. C5
    12. D3

    Hope this helps! Happy catching!
