App description: Navigate mouse Theseus Tilsit on his dangerous mission into an abyss to retrieve cheese rations which his family and community need to survive. Evade sharp obstacles and also attacks from evil cave dwellers. Defend yourself by throwing chunks of cheese at your enemies. The ideal game On The Go.


Mouse Theseus Tilsit together with his friends and family live in a secret cellar in a abandoned medieval cloister. Over the summer the hard working mice have collected substantial cheese rations which shall guarantee their survival during the long winter ahead.
Tragically the old wood floor collapses and all the cheese rations fall into a deep cave below. The smartest Mouse Dr. Professor Rechaud constructs a special crane to send the bravest mouse Theseus into the deep abyss. There awaits him a battle for life and death.


Navigate the Gondola in which our hero travels around. On the way collect as many chunks of cheese as possible. Danger lurks on every corner. First of all you need to avoid the sharp cave edges. Then there are vicious enemies ready to attack you. You can defend yourself by throwing the already collected cheese chunks at them thus disengaging them.

The graphics look stunning. Very polished. This looks like a lot of fun, and will probably be next on my list.

yup... it is a pretty nice game... my daughters are enjoying it quite a bit!

I'm kinda liking it too...

You tilt to move the mouse left and right, collect cheese, and swipe to fling cheese at enemies. Avoid rocks while going deeper and deeper, and by the screens, it looks like it can get pretty hectic after a while... =oP

Hope I can make it down that far soon... hehe...
