Mousetrap is an old-fashioned arcade type game in which you move your avatar around trying to eat fruit.
The aim of the game is to eat as many of the white fruit pieces as you can possibly manage before dying. Your reaction times will tested to the limit!
The enemy (red) balls are limitted in their movements - they are constrained to either move horizontally, vertically, or diagonally but they will not change their direction.
Dodging the enemy balls becomes very challenging once there are a lot on the screen at the same time. It requires as much thought as reaction speed.
Use the arrow keys to move your avatar around, eating the white "fruit" and avoiding the red "enemies". If you eat a blue "fruit" you will gain a shield which will allow you to kill any of the enemies you bump into instead of dying yourself.
Apart from using the arrow keys to control your avatar you can use the following keys:
* 'n' == New game
* 'q' == Quit & Exit.
* Space toggles pause.
