Mouse House is a top-down action puzzle game in which the goal is to collect all pieces of cheese and leave via the exit door. You control a cartoon mouse head with feet that can march around one grid square at a time, pushing obstacles at will and even shooting flaming balls at enemies if it gets its mouth on a chili pepper.
There is no timer and enemies have preprogrammed actions, making it possible to plan out a solution as you progress without much time pressure. At the same time, your speed can be vital to surviving when enemies attack, although you usually won't have a chance to escape.
There's also no pressure to complete specific levels, since all fifty levels are already unlocked. There's not even a mark to show you've completed a level, which may peeve some.
Overall a good challenge, while all levels are still within the realm of comfortable completion by the casual player.
Sam's Protip: In this, as in all puzzle games, the best thing you can do if you're seriously stuck is take a break. The way you solved previous puzzles may be interfering with your ability to solve the current one.
