MOUSECRAFT

Crunching Koalas/Curve Studios



Let’s make something!

You’ll need to raid the doodle drawers for...

- Two white pipe cleaners
- Some grey cardboard
- A black felt tip pen
- Two googly eyes
- Scissors
- A used-up bog roll
- Sticky stuff

First, grab the scissors and cut out two big circles. Be careful, because scissors are sharp! It might be best to ask an adult to help you.

Now, fold down a centimetre on each circle. Plop some sticky stuff on the small folded bit and then stick them on the bog roll for ears.

Next, make holes either side of the bog roll under the ears with the scissors – again taking care not to stab yourself or anybody in your vicinity. Poke the two pipe cleaners through the holes, then bend them so that they look like whiskers.

It’s time to let our mouse see, so gloompf some sticky stuff onto the googly eyes and stick them on the bog roll.

Finally, draw a mouth on the bog roll – unless you don’t want your mouse eating your cheese, of course!

Now you should have one incredibly poxy-looking mouse. Yay!

Sorry, got caught up in being Ms Maker there. We probably should mention the game.

MouseCraft is a sort of collision between Lemmings and Alexey Pajitnov's blocks. Or ‘tetrominoes’ if you’re hyper-geeky.

You do the bidding of Schrödinger Cat – scientist and closet Mötley Crüe fan - who’s experimenting on meeses and their lust for cheese. You strategically place or explodinate those tetromino thingies so that those meeses won’t be blown to pieces as they single-mindedly seek rennet-infused num-nums. Hey, they’re almost lemming-like!

80 levels, with increasingly challenging/annoying puzzles and more bits and bobs to navigate gradually added, is the dealie. Completionist collectible collection adds challenge.

If you’re patient, you’ll be like a cat with cream. If you’re easily riled, you’ll quickly want to wave (function) goodbye...

take me back to the start...
