I’m not going to pretend to really understand what’s going on in Mappy. You have to guide the titular hero, an apparent member of the Micro Police, through a series of houses and get the goods within, presumably before the gang of cats does the same.

Although Mappy is a police officer of sorts, armed with a police-issue baton, the only defense you actually have against the cat gang is whacking them over the head with a door.

And there you have it, one of the arcade games of 1983 distilled down to a couple of paragraphs. And I still don’t really understand it.
