A dead-on port of the 1981 Exidy arcade game, Mouse Trap is a cute (but not syrupy sweet) maze contest that makes good use of Coleco's keypad-enhanced joysticks. Buttons 1, 2 and 3 operate the color-coded doors while button 5 turns the mouse into a barking dog. Controls lack the pure simplicity found in Ms. Pac-Man, but the strategies, such as trapping cats by closing doors, give the game depth. Mouse Trap is a perfect example of Coleco's excellence in translating coin-op curiosities into stellar home games. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
