Super Mouse (c) 1982 Taito.

In this platform game, you are a mouse collecting a stash of food that happens to be scattered around the house. Opposing you are cats and cobras, which pop up out of nowhere. You're not exactly helpless, though. You have balloon bombs which you can lay and detonate, rocks on top of the house to drop, floors that move across when you step on them and pools of water under bridges which you open by walking over them. All these can kill cats and cobras, if you use them right.

Even if titlescreen says 1982, Super Mouse was released in January 1983 in Japan.

The Bonus round is a bit different on the machines. On "Funny Mouse" you hit the button to stop the wheels, in Super Mouse you hit the button to start the wheels spinning.
