Mimi and The Mites
Mimi & the Mites is a puzzle game with a strong action element. The game consists
of a sequence of puzzle screens. In each, you solve the "puzzle" by achieving a
particular goal. Example: guide Mimi to an Exit. The mites, along with a variety of
architectural features and interactive devices, provide the "action."
The mites are Mimi's main problem. Unflappable, agile, morph-manic, the mites stand
ready to foil Mimi by the simple act of coming into direct contact with her.
When this happens, Mimi is spirited off to a special arena where the mites engage
in a favorite, fun, if somewhat humiliating (for Mimi) ritual.
She then returns to the screen to renew her efforts to triumph over its unique
challenge. Mimi must zap the troublesome blue creatures with her weapon or otherwise
Your task as Mimi's guide is made more challenging by the physical settings she will
encounter in the game's subterranean world. Spatial obstacles abound in the dwelling
place of the mites. There are also many conveyances and devices which will help or
hinder Mimi. The purpose and operation of these elements may be readily clear to you
from a screen and gameplay context, so if you're tempted to jump right into the game,
then by all means do so.
Overall, there is, from screen to screen, a gradual increase in complexity and
difficulty to match the increase in your skill level.
Each puzzle is introduced by a "'tween screen." The tween screen tells you:
a) the number of the puzzle
b) the name of the puzzle
c) its difficulty level
d) the goal that must be achieved to gain passage to the next puzzle
e) occasional additional information, such as time limits
Solving a puzzle automatically advances you to the tween screen introducing the next
puzzle. Any keyboard input will start the next puzzle.
Remember: If a mite touches Mimi, she suffers the consequence.
