MouseHunt Walkthrough

There are many FaceBook Users who love the MouseHunt Game. I find a few walkthrough made by the gamers itself. This will shorten your learning curve on the game. You can also avoid mistake that other games have made.

The first walkthrough is a simplified one and easy to understand. It will help you to proceed through the game. It is done by FaceBook member, John-Paul Sanggaran (Australia).

The second walkthrough is a more detailed guide and help you to made decision on what trap to use in playing the game. You may follow his guide on playing the game but you may lose the fun of playing as the solution is there. Or u may use it when u are at odds of how to proceed to the next level. This Google Document is done by Sean D'Hoostelaere (Austria).

After 5 days collect your restored map from the Cartographer and head to the Catacombs if you are Legendary.

MouseHunt on FaceBook Tips 2

Your rank in MouseHunt should be Master by now and have access to Laboratory, Town of Digby and Mousoleum. You will be working hard now to gain the next rank of Grandmaster. Your goal now is to obtain the Shredded Furoma Map Piece so that you can move to the Training Grounds in Furoma when you are promoted to Grandmaster. The Shredded Furoma Map Piece can be obtained by catching a Lycan Mouse from the Mousoleum or occasionally a Mole Mouse in the Town of Digby. Not every Mole in the Town of Digby or every Lycan in the Mousoleum carries this map piece.

It is not easy to catch a Mole Mouse in Town of Digby and moreover it must carry the Shredded Furoma Map Piece. It is best to use White Cheddar to catch the Mole. You need to craft the White Cheddar with 1 salt and 1 Curds and Whey. The ingredients can be bought at the Harbour General Store. Go to Crafting and combine both items to get the White Cheddar.

If still not suucessful at getting Mole with Shredded Furoma Map Piece, try to move to Mousoleum to catch the Lycan Mouse. You can catch the Lycan Mouse using the Shadow Weapon like Ambrosial Portal or Sinster Portal and you need to use Radioactive Blue Cheese or Moon Cheese as bait. I have caught the Lycan Mouse in the Mousoleum with the Shredded Furoma Map Piece.

MouseHunt Useful Tools

The MouseHunt Travel Planner will help you to save money when moving one place to another especially over longer distance. You find that if you made a stopover, you might save some GOLD.

If you were to travel from Town of Gnawnia to Laboratory and your Rank is a Master. The direct route cost you 5113 Gold. But that's made a stopover and guess how much you save.

Town of Gnawnia -> Meadow -> Laboratory
Pooflinger's route costs 4590 Gold

Radioactive Blue Cheese

Radioactive Blue Cheese can be created by converting cheese (Brie and SUPER|brie+) using the Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion, Greater Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion, and Corrupted Radioactive Blue Potion. These cheese is important for successful hunting in the Mousoleum and the Catacombs areas.

These Potions cannot be bought but are dropped by the mouse when you caught them. Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion are dropped uncommonly by Steel, Granite and Bionic mice in the Laboratory. Greater Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion are dropped uncommonly by Monsters in the Laboratory and by Vampires in the Mousoleum. Corrupted Radioactive Blue Potion are dropped by Keepers and Scavengers in the Catacombs.

Costs
One potion converts 30 Super Brie to 30 Radioactive Blue and FREE.
One potion converts 10 Brie to 10 Radioactive Blue. It cost 300pcs of Gold per Brie you convert.

Dehydration Base Crafting

The Dehydration Base cannot be bought and can be obtained by crafting only. You will succeed in crafting this Base as long you have the correct items.

Items needed for Crafting Dehydration Base

  • Dehydration Base Blueprints(Qty:1)
  • Splintered Wood(Qty:4)

Journeyman on MouseHunt

It is time for you to travel to the Mountain to do Hunting. But before you travel you must buy as much Swiss Cheese as you can afford. Please leave 1000 Gold for traveling to the Mountain. It will cost you 981 Gold to Travel from Town of Gnawnia to Mountain via Meadow.

In the Mountain, your main task is to catch the Ninja Mouse with the Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece. You need this Map Piece in order to gain access to the Laboratory . If unsuccessful and you reach the rank of Master then use Brie as the bait. I have used Swiss Cheese with Swiss Army Knife and Explosive Base to catch the Ninja Mouse with the Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece. Please take note not all Ninja Mouse got the Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece.

Keep hunting you reach the Master Rank and you will be able to visit the Laboratory with the Map Piece you got at the Mountain. If you want to you go after the Torn Pages of Plankruns Journal in the Meadow dropped by a Dwarf use white cheddar. You can craft White Cheddar using 1 Curds & Whey + 1 Salt ingredients which can be bought in the General Store in the harbour. 

MouseHunt on Facebook Tips 1

You have regions as levels with areas as sublevels. The levels or regions are named Gwania, Burroughs, and Furoma. Sublevels for Gwania are Meadows and Town for Novice; Harbour for Apprentice; Mountains for Journeyman. Sublevels for Burroughs are Laboratory, Mousoleum, Town of Digby, Bazaar.
Sublevels for Furoma Region is Training Grounds, Dojo, Meditation Room, and Pinnacle Chamber.

Click here on tips for Novice Rank MouseHunt>>>

Click here on tips for Journeyman Rank MouseHunt>>>

When you reach Master, you can then go to the next level up which is Burroughs, Laboratory. BUT ONLY after you have obtained The Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece. You must catch a Ninja Mouse from the Mountain in order to obtain The Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece. Take note that not all Ninja Mouse has the Map. Therefore try to obtain the Map before you move to the rank of Master.

Upon
reaching the rank of Master, the player is eligible to hunt in the
Laboratory, Town of Digby, and Mousoleum locations of the Burroughs
area, assuming they have collected the proper loot.
It is also the
first ranking at which Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potions can be
collected and used. The Master also acquires another increase in
crafting abilities. The rank of Master is signified by a purple shield
next to the player's name.

From what I gather The Burroughs area is far away from town where the
shops is and there are certain items you need to stock up on like Super/Brie+, Swiss and Marble. You need a certain trap and base when you go to the upper
levels for better chances of hunting. You will at least need a Swiss Army Mouse Trap with Stone Base or other better traps which may be more expensive for you at this point of time.

In the Laboratory, you need to find the Key to the Town of Digby by successfully catching a Dwarf Mouse in the Laboratory. Not every Dwarf Mouse in the Laboratory carries a Key. After obtaining the Key, you may visit the Town of Digby.

Then
while in the laboratory the only way you can also move to the Mousoleum by getting the Tattered Mousoleum Map Piece. The Tattered
Mousoleum Map can only be obtained by successfully catching a Zombie
Mouse in the Laboratory.
You also need to collect as many Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion in the laboratory as you can. You will need it to create Radioactive Blue Cheese for use in the Mousoleum. 1 Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion can convert 10 Brie to 10 Radioactive Blue Cheese and cost you 300 Gold per piece. The best is to use the Radioactive Blue Cheese Curd Potion to convert 10 Super Brie to 10 Radioactive Blue Cheese and cost no Gold. The best is to have 300 Radioactive Blue Cheese for hunting in Mousoleum.

Novice Rank on MouseHunt

You started with the rank of Novice, get the High Tension Spring Trap.
Buy as many Cheddar as you can and start hunting in the Town. Continue
hunting until you can buy the Wooden Base with Target at 1225 Gold.
Stay hunting in the Town until you save enough Gold to buy the 500
pound Spiked Crusher at 3450 Gold. You can now also buy the better
Marble Cheese which help you to attract more mices. Traveling to Meadow to
hunt is another option and travel cost is 25 Gold. Buy as many cheese
as you can if you want to hunt there as there is no Cheese Shop over there.
The next base to buy is the Stone Base(6175 Gold) and also get the
Mouse Trebuchet Trap(15850 Gold).
Hunt in both the Town of Gnawnia and Meadow until you reach the Rank of Apprentice.
