Hi,
Well...you have to consider the pray. I've never heard of cats eating too many squirrels--and with mice consuming less food it stands to reason they breed much much faster than other pray animals.
Best Regards,
Hayden

Jeremy, I understand completely. Though in my opinion they must have some downside to them somewhere.

I personally consider only being able to have one land-dwelling pray animal a flaw, not something that adds more challenge.

Willem, I completely agree. I didn't originally intend for mice to be so useful, but as things got more complex I was afraid to go back and start messing with the underlying equations of the game. When I was designing the game I expected rabbits and squirrels to be much better in different situations because they provide predators way more food when eaten. I hadn't counted on the fact that mice reproduce to fast that a predator can just eat several mice to do just as well. As you can imagine, even a slight change to how the mice work would cause balancing issues to ripple up through the layers, and I just didn't have the confidence in myself to start fooling with it. Just my luck, I would have broken the entire game lol!
