mousecraft

Review: MouseCraft

There may be a drought of big release titles on the new gaming consoles, but one thing PS4 isn’t lacking is quality indie titles. A couple of these digital games release every month, and July started off hot with the release of MouseCraft from Curve Studios. MouseCraft is a “simple” puzzle game in the vein of something like Lemmings only much more enjoyable in this day and age. You’re tasked with helping three mice get past a series of obstacles to get to the cheese. To complete the level, you only need to get one mouse to the cheese.
