From Cheese is a puzzle game where each level is like a maze where a mouse needs to find its way to the cheese while avoiding the cat. The player draws a scent trail from the cheese, hence the title, back to the mouse. The player then taps on the Play button to check the results of the actions, with the ability to undo and redraw all or parts of the trail. More advanced levels introduce other gameplay elements like sliding doors operated by buttons and a dog which can prevent the cat from reaching the mouse. The player earn stars based on the length of the trail used to successfully complete the level.
