Mappy-landa game by Taxan
- Type: Action
- Levels of Play: 5
- Release: Jul, 1989
- Difficulty: Easy
You're Mappy, the mouse-policeman who must keep law and order through five changing levels of difficulty.
In addition to jumping and running after the nasty Boss cat and mischievous little cats, Mappy can also use a variety of special enhancements like the rubber-band trampolines and closed doors to get away from the bad guys and rescue his beautiful girlfriend. Cannons, power beams, and special feathers can also be used to stop the Boss and give you extra time to collect all of the items scattered about the level.
Mappyland is a great sequel to the original Mappy game. The new scrolling and multilevel features really make this game shine. It's very easy to play, but is loaded with things to discover and ways to increase your score! It may not look like a revolutionary game, but it plays better than most.
There's just no such thing as a kiddie game. While Mappyland may have characters, settings, and tunes geared toward younger players, it is not a game that will be fully appreciated by anyone under 16. The game play is good, but the package unfortunately misses the mark.
Mappyland is a good continuation of the arcade version, even though the theme is a little different. There's a lot to interact with, which may limit its appeal to older players, but it is decent. Mappy starts out kind of slow, but the graphics and other features come together nicely.
This game is addicting - I started and didn't want to stop. The graphics are average, but it's a good game with challenging play that's loaded with secret, yet not too complex to get the hand of.

Finally, a game that's tough enough to challenge the Nintendo expert, while still being fun for children of all ages. Mappy, the policeman, takes you on four increasingly difficult adventures through eight lands, each with secret entrances, exits, and complex subareas. In your various adventures, you'll be armed with an unusual arsenal of weapons. Toys, pots, fish, pulleys, punching bags, fireworks, horizontal bars, sticks, even bowling balls. And just when you think you've got it down, Mappy-Land will toss you another surprise.
Mappyland is a sequel to the arcade super-hit Mappy (copyright Namco). The object is to gather items while avoiding the annoying cats that constantly patrol each round. Don't worry, you have a large arsenal of weapons to assist you every step of the way. The game may seem simple at first. You can finish one round with only 400 points but if you use your offensive and defensive weapons just right, you can end up with over 45,000 points for that same level! There are four rounds of eight levels each for a total of 32 separate rounds. As you reach the higher levels it becomes necessary to find hidden sub-levels to complete each level. There is a level select in this game which will allow you to select up to level 4.7, but don't worry, if you beat this beauty it's on to level 5.1 (round 1.1 at increased speed)! This game is one of the few that never gets boring!
