Cheeky Mouse
Universal was known for making alot of games that no one ever heard of, unless you were a hardcore gamer.  Go ask the man on the street and see how many heard of Space Panic or Cosmic Avenger.  With the exception of the Mr. Do series, most of their games were headed to arcade obscurity and Cheeky Mouse is no different.

The game features the second cousin of Evil Otto (not really, but this guy has the same never ending smile).  This dim bulb is living in a house full of rats and needs to keep pounding them with mallets and yet he is standing there smiling.  My guess is he is a sadistic individual and this is his idea of fun.  Well, those pesky rats keep coming and coming.  They go and chew through your floor and go to the basement and steal what I am guessing is cheese.  Run out of cheese and you lose a life.  This makes him stop smiling.

(Not smiling now are you, the rats beat you!)

The game is quite simple, hit the rats before they get all your stuff or die.  If they do get the cheese, you can bop them with your mallet as they emerge from the holes.  As you progress, you will see different color rats and a mystery critter.  Don't worry, a mallet will do them all in.  

As you can see, there is at the top of the screen, a counter of sorts.  This shows how many rats are coming and you will be forced to stop.  When they are all gone, you can move onto another level.  Like any good arcade game, as the game progresses, it get tougher.  The number of rats coming speeds up quickly and soon you are knee deep in rodents.  What I wouldn't give for a few cats and a handful of traps.  But all you have is your trusty mallet, so get cracking as those rats aren't taking a break and neither can you (unless you hit the pause button).  

So the next time you want to take out some frustration, load up Cheeky Mouse and start bashing those vermin.  You will relieve some stress and not have to worry about lawsuits.  Whoever heard of a rat suing anyone?

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
