  Faster, Smoother Cheese for Sleepy Mouse © v1.1
  Share on Twitter RSS

London, UK 9th February 2017: The first update to Sleepy Mouse© iOS has been released on the App Store providing players with faster, smoother gameplay and increased accuracy physics. The update is based on requests from Sleepy Mouse fans, the self-named 'Cheeseheads' and sets the pace for Sleepy Mouse's much anticipated release on Android.

Sleepy Mouse is the little mouse who likes to sleep, loves his cheese, but hates to wake up hangry. The 75-level 2D puzzle game has moved to Pay-to-Play on the App Store (£0.79).

Sleepy Mouse uses a physics based interface with a pull back and aim mechanism on the cheese, challenging players to navigate obstacles before Sleepy Mouse wakes.

Dan Norris, Sleepy Mouse game developer and owner of Start Get Ready©, “The response to Sleepy Mouse has been amazing. I've been blown away by the commitment of the Cheeseheads and v1.1 provides a much greater degree of leaderboard integration by level and overall scores to maximise player competitiveness. Players can now zoom out to full-screen on long shots creating greater accuracy in gameplay. The bounce bonus has changed to show the path of the cheese so players can keep refining their shots and maximise scores”.

Sleepy Mouse v1.1 is available to download from the App Store from Thursday 9th February /us/app/sleepy-mouse/id1100277247

Sleepy Mouse is expected to release on Android March 2017.
