Game review

Mappy is a classic arcade-style game developed by Namco. Known for its unique gameplay and charming presentation, Mappy broke the mold of traditional platformers of its era and has since become a beloved title in the realm of retro gaming. In Mappy, players control a police mouse named Mappy, navigating through a series of houses to recover stolen items while avoiding the mischievous cat burglars, known as the 'Meowkies,' and their leader, 'Goro.' The game is set across multiple levels, each consisting of a multi-storied mansion filled with trampolines, doors, and valuable items.

Unlike typical platformers where jumping is a primary mechanic, Mappy uses trampolines to move between the mansion's floors. These trampolines can only be used a limited number of times before they disappear, adding a strategic element to the gameplay. Players must carefully plan their route through the mansion, using doors to ward off enemies and strategically using trampolines to avoid getting caught.

Players can open and close doors to block enemies or use special 'microwave' doors to knock out pursuing foes. Timing is crucial, as the Meowkies and Goro are relentless in their pursuit. Each level in Mappy is a puzzle of sorts, with players required to collect all the stolen items while navigating through the maze-like mansion and outsmarting enemies. The challenge increases with each level, introducing more complex layouts and aggressive enemy behavior.

Mappy was well-received for its original gameplay, charming presentation, and the strategic depth it offered. It appealed to a wide audience, from younger players to those looking for a different kind of platforming challenge.
