Description official descriptions

You control Mappy, a police-mouse whose job is to collect valuables (consumer electronics) from a cat's house. You are being pursued by a gang of five pink cats. Doors are your only defense against the cats. You get from floor to floor by jumping on one of the trampolines.

Points are earned by recovering stolen goods. Other ways of earning points are bouncing on a trampoline, putting cats in the microwave, striking a cat with a door, striking cats with a bell, retrieving a treasure from the Boss cat Goro or dropping cats through a hole in the floor.

Trivia

Distribution

This game was distributed in the arcades in the U.S. by Bally Midway, the same people who distributed Namco's Pac-Man. It never made much dent in the U.S. market. However, Namco approached Bally Midway with 2 games and allowed them first pick. Bally Midway only wanted to release 1 so they selected the maze-based Mappy and the other game went to Atari. The other game was the top grossing game of its year, Pole Position.
