This platform game challenges the player to guide a mouse around a screen collecting goodies - varying from cheese to cakes to balloons. Once they have all been collected you must reach the door, doing all of this within the time limit, depicted by a picture of a diffusing bomb.

The player will have to jump over flowers, dodge bouncing balls and dinosaurs amongst other things - contact with any of these loses a life. Movement is achieved along ledges, via clouds, moving platforms and up ladders. Short falls can be withstood, but larger ones (or heavy landings from jumps) are fatal.


Mouse Trap Atari 8-bit Level 16 - rope at the top will help you pass.
Mouse Trap Atari 8-bit Level 9 - snake, owl and something else.
Mouse Trap Atari 8-bit Level 14 - dragon and bat.
Mouse Trap Atari 8-bit Level 7 - another ant hiding at the bottom.
