Cute and compulsive arcade game from the eighties
12 May 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Mappy, an intrepid grey mouse in a police uniform, is trapped in a mansion full of cat burglars (of course they're all literally cats!), platforms, trampolines, electronic doors and stolen goods. In order to escape, he has to retrieve all the stolen goods, stun the cats with dizzying waves of energy by opening the doors in their faces, and bounce around a lot. I remember playing this compulsive, addictive platform game as a kid, and wondering why it never took off in England in a big way - maybe it was too cute, with not enough action or violence (Mappy never 'dies', he just falls on his head, dazed, whenever one of the feline fiends makes contact with him) to satisfy the Space Invaders crowd - but I'm told it was more successful in its native Japan. It's a shame a home computer version was never made available, since it was a lot more entertaining than its most famous ancestor, Jet Set Willy, and the added attraction of being immune while you were bouncing on a trampoline offered a brief oasis of calm amidst all the running about. There is an online version called 'Muppy' which is quite primitive compared to the arcade original, but better than nothing!
