Transformice: A Pandemonium Stricken Multiplayer Game With Attitude


Transformice (English Server)

"Unpredictable and sometimes insane - Feel the wrath of a swarm of teenage mice"

The Shaman mouse has the duty of spawning objected to aid
and help out the other mice to overcome obstacles.
Transformice is a multiplayer puzzle solving game which has become quite a storm in recent months. You are jumped straight into a situation with other human online players and given the objectives to collect the "cheese" and return it to the "mouse hole". Simply enough, right? Of course with each map you encounter difficulties and some obstacles are impossible to tackle without the support of one elected player who is the super mouse (known as the 'Shaman') and who has the powers to spawn objects to aid your plight. You're strapped by a strict time limit and only have one life per map so use it wisely when trying to capture the cheese and make first place. Typically, since one player is often elected to lead the other mice to the cheese it is inevitable that somewhere along the line they will use their powers to.. let's say in the nicest way possible, inconvenience you. Primarily this involves attempting to annihilate you using any means at their disposal. So yes, you're going to get some Shamans who have the twisted alterior motive of blasting you off the map to certain death using their array of spawning tools which can become all the more sinister depending on who's running the show.

"The Shaman will often try to annihilate you using any means at their disposal. Be aware of incoming attacks at all times".


Each map is new and inventive, giving you different puzzles
on varying degrees of difficulty.
Communicate and form strategies with your fellow mice using the chat box located in the below section of your screen. Quite a useful feature for establishing plans to combat testing tasks this feature mainly poses a way to bombard other players with insults in the heat of the moment. You'll find that the chat section is a beast that has to be controlled in order to accomplisher anything, and that the people who you're talking to often have no other purpose in life other than to en-fury and ignite your fierce temper. Common methods of annoying the hell out of people include blocking the pathway that other mice attempting to use, blasting everyone off the cliff as Shaman, using the chat box to spew crude insults such as "noob" at the other players despite their expertise in maneuvering the map to obtain the cheese quicker than you - Often the perfect stunt for inciting hatred, unrest and rage amongst all the players in the room.

"The people you're talking to often have no other purpose than to infuriate and ignite your temper".


On occasion there can be an excess of 90 mice in one room -
As you can imagine with clustering the havoc that ensues.
The secret to this game is definitely to keep a cool head. Because you can become quite worked up over the naivety of some of the comments and the irritating players you have to babysit as Shaman. And you'll no doubt be tempted just to blast them off the cliff to certain doom or en-cage them in a wooden prison so you can laugh manically at their misfortune for being such a "noob". Note of caution: Prepare to encounter an overwhelming fluctuation of little kids who have infected the blood stream of this game and proceed to spread their little egos and their undeserving sense of accomplishment all over the chat - Anyone who uses the term "noob" is the biggest "noob" of all. You'll quickly identify the little kids and learn to avoid them, a concise but effective remark of "isn't it past your bed-time?" should get under their skin as payback for their incapacity to understand the workings of a simple game. Be equipped, "Your mom" jokes can often be the ideal retort for dealing with the types of misfits and giggling school kids you have the inevitable displeasure of bumping into on this game.


"Prepare to encounter an overwhelming fluctuation of little kids who have infected the blood stream of this game".


This is all a fundamental part of the game's success and enjoyability - The opportunity to solve puzzles as part of a team but also in competition as rivalry with co-players. The features which of the game which get you feeling hyped and amped are the never ending range of situations you have to face and defeat. There's also a map editor and a tribe system where you can hook up with fellow mice and take on the world together. You earn titles and are able to buy items to customize your mouse with the cheese you earn from public missions. In conclusion despite the many foul-mouthed idiots brandishing their penises and reciting the latest mom jokes in your face constantly you should have an interesting time with this game, even if you're not an avid fan of this genre of games the online multiplayer element could really appeal to you as it rely s on communicating with other people to achieve a greater victory.


"Surprisingly addictive. Liable to deliver an experience packed with wonder and confusion".


The immense confusion and infuriated rage will undoubtedly leave you wide eyed and open-mouthed. Learn to adapt and be immune from unpredictable insults and be oblivious to the idiotic behavior taking place around you and you should fit into this sticky mess of uncoordinated madness and pre-pubic misunderstanding.

Wow what an amazingly unique concept. I have to say though, just like Brood War UMS, it will be almost impossible to get good games.. When you rely so heavily on one player like that it's just not going to happen, you know? Even if Shaman knows what he's doing there will be others who don't.

Still looks really friggin' cool with huge potential if you can get a good team.

I played this game before and couldn't stop laughing. Pretty fun game, it keeps you occupied for a few hours, but then you memorize all of the maps and it becomes boring.
