What's different is the characters. The player character is here a hamster called Sniffles and the monsters that are out to get him are mice. The aim of the game is to collect all the rings from each level. When that is done a gate opens and the player can move on to the next level. As the player digs his way through the levels be has to watch out for boulders that might fall down over him. These can also be used as a weapon against the mice. The game also has a time limit. When ending a game the player can submit his score to an online leaderboard. [source:mobygames]
