Based on the fun-filled arcade game, Exidy’s Mouse Trap for Colecovision features a cheese-chomping mouse that dash around a maze. Open and shut doors to escape the pursuing cats. Eat a bone, then turn your mouse into a cat-biting dog. But watch out for the treacherous hawk!

Port of Exidy's arcade game released in December 1981. Mousetrap inspired a catchy hit song by Buckner and Garcia called 'Mousetrap' released on the 'Pac-Man Fever' album.

Mouse Trap is one of the first games available at the launch of the ColecoVision. In some countries, it was the pack-in game instead of Donkey Kong.

Mouse Trap was ported to three home systems by Coleco; Coleco's ColecoVision, Mattel's Intellivision, and the Atari 2600.

Many differences between Pac-Man and Mouse Trap are aesthetic: the dots become cheese, the player is a mouse, the ghosts are cats, and power pills are bones that turn the player into a dog.
