The most interesting and difficult part of Mouse Bounce to develop has been infinite, randomly generated levels.
A level is a combination of:
The main goal of level generation is to make something that is different every play through, fun and more difficult as the player progresses. Easy, right? So, starting at the beginning, Platforms! Hopefully, as you’ve noticed, there are two levels of platforms, one at the front that the player can jump on and one at the back that he can’t. They are switched around with a double tap to make finding a path more fun and challenging.

I’m Dave Ward, a game developer from Yorkshire, U.K. As this is the first blog post I’m giving a bit of background to Cat Trap Studios talking about how it came to be.
My first taste of game development came in the form of Castle Invasion, a side project throughout the third year of University. At the time, PlayStation Mobile has just launched and not that long before it the PS Vita. I found it the coolest thing in the world (even cooler than those parrots that talk back to you) to be able to develop for a PlayStation device and dove straight in to make something of my own.
