YoYo Games’ Lazy Mouse Scurries Onto App Stores

Posted on 16 April 2013

The World of the Laziest and Smartest Pet Mouse Created by a Team of Two in Eight Weeks Using GameMaker: Studio

YoYo Games today announces the availability of “Lazy Mouse,” a challenging puzzler for gamers of all ages, complete with vibrant graphics, simple controls, a unique rotating screen mechanic and an original soundtrack.

Lazy is without a doubt the world’s smartest pet mouse. His rodent intellect has won him countless school science awards, and his genius has left him no stranger to the spotlight, with multiple appearances at “show and tell.” The trouble is that Lazy is also undoubtedly the laziest pet mouse in the world.

To advance Lazy through his household experiments, guide him safely around five uniquely themed worlds over 50 levels. Throughout each level there are objects to help move lazy around, such as batteries that give him a jump, vines that hold him in place while you rotate the screen, teleporting holes and spring loaded conveyor belts.

“Lazy Mouse” offers endless and highly addictive entertainment potential. Key features include:

  • 100 cheese slices to collect
  • 150 stars to earn
  • 30 achievements to unlock
  • Vibrant visuals to engage gamers of all ages
  • Simple and intuitive controls
  • Original soundtrack
  • Universal support for iPhone 3GS, 4, 4s, 5, iPad 1, 2, 3, 4, mini and iPod Touch 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th generations

“Lazy Mouse” was created by a team of two developers -- one programmer and one artist -- over the course of eight weeks using GameMaker: Studio, the fastest and easiest to use 2D cross-platform games development technology. “Lazy Mouse” is available now on the App Store, Google Play, Amazon App Store, Mac App Store, Windows Phone Store, and it is coming very soon to the Windows Store, Samsung App Store and NOOK Store. Prices vary by platform.
