You can’t go wrong with Vector Unit; their quirky titles such as the Riptide series and Beach Buggy Racing always bring a smile to the players face. Their latest offering, MouseBot: Escape from CatLab subverts the domestic animal food chain into a laboratory-based platformer that releases on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC today.
Overseen by cats wearing white laboratory jackets, you must navigate a mouse through over 80 levels of platforming madness. Obstacles include acid, lasers, Kitty KrushersTM and more. It all sounds very dangerous, but the mouse you are controlling is actually a mechanical one, a test subject if you will. But you can see what those evil cats are up to should they test their contraptions on a live specimen?
Originally released on mobile devices, this new premium version of MouseBot: Escape from CatLab comes with 20 new mazes along with new goals to strive for. Having had a quick go, those target times will be tricky to beat, but stay tuned for a full review soon.
There are also new cosmetic items for your mouse to buy using wedges of cheese that you collect during a level. And if you manage to usurp the cat hierarchy, there will be a brand new Arcade mode that promises to test your skills to the max!
Key features include:
- 88 challenging mazes filled with traps and obstacles.
- Hilarious cartoon destruction! Try not to get crushed, stomped, zapped or blown to bits.
- Unlock new abilities! Run, jump and transform for land and water!
- Collect epic piles of cheese!
- Win new skins and accessories to customize MouseBot!
- Unlock the extra-fast, extra-nefarious new Arcade mode.
- Impawsibly fast load times!
MouseBot: Escape from CatLab is available to download now priced at £4.19. If you are an Xbox One X owner – or even a Series X|S player – MouseBot comes straight in at a cool 4K and 60FPS. You’ll also find the game on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
It’s time to a few lives off these cats and knock them down a peg or two!
