Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Mouse Maze is a Flash game about Squeaky, a mouse who has to navigate a subset of the grid using a simple deterministic rule, which naturally generalises to a game on arbitrary graphs with some interesting chaotic dynamics. We present the results of some evolutionary algorithms which generate graphs which effectively trap Squeaky in the maze for long periods of time, and some theoretical results on how long he can be trapped. We then discuss what would happen to Squeaky if he couldn't count, and present some open problems in the area
