MiceAmaze is a free video game that features a maze with mice and snakes. The goal is to bring the most mice to your house by placing arrows on the maze floor. But beware the snakes that want to eat them!
Download MiceAmaze for Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8)
If your browser is Google Chrome, you need to tell it to keep the file even if it tells you it might be dangerous (the reason for this warning is that MiceAmaze is not a frequently downloaded program so it is not well-known from Chrome).
If you are using Windows 8, when you double-click on "Install MiceAmaze", Windows will tell you that "Windows protected your computed". You need to click on "More info" and then "Run anyway".
If you are using a Debian-based distribution (such as Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc.) you can directly install the "miceamaze" package that is available in your distribution.

Mice will appear continuously. Your goal is to bring more mice to your house than other players before the time is over.
Arrows: If you play using your mouse, you have 2 ways to place arrows, either use left-click/right-click/wheel-up/wheel-down, or click and maintain pressed then go to one direction and release. If you play using the keyboard, use the arrows to move the cursor and I,J,K,L to place arrows. In any case, you cannot place more than 3 arrows.
Snakes will eat mice they meet until they get sick of eating too much and die. If a snake reaches your house, you loose 10 points.
The golden mouse will trigger a special event.
You have a good idea to make a maze? It is very simple to make one, simply go in the mazes directory and create a text file with a similar syntax as the others (the maze format is kind of an ASCII art representation of the maze, click here to see an example). You can send me (almacha AT almacha.org) your maze and I will include it in the next release, with its title and your name shown under it (by sending it, you agree to release it to the public domain).
