If playing pranks is one of your favorite pass-time activities, then Crazy Mouse might be exactly what you’re looking for. The program was designed with a dual-purpose: to deter other people from using the computer and to have fun at the expense of your friends.
With Crazy Mouse, the saying “what you see is what you get” is particularly accurate, since there are no additional settings, aside from those included by the compact interface.
Basically, the app makes the mouse cursor act weird. To enable the program, the frame must be hidden. Canceling the entire process can be done by pressing a keyboard shortcut (Control + Shift). Also, in order to bring back the frame, you must remember another key combination (Control + Shift +Q), since there are no icons in the tray bar or the system tray.
By ticking a simple checkbox, Crazy Mouse can be set to load automatically at system startup, effectively pranking your friends and family.
Furthermore, the app has different levels of “craziness”. The state of the cursor can be selected with the help of a slider. Staying true to the style of the app, the movement stages also have amusing names. For instance, the first level is called “Your mouse gets lost sometimes”, followed by “Your mouse gets drunk”. The ultimate stage is entitled “Your mouse becomes a cat” and, in some ways, the movements might resemble a kitty chasing a laser dot (or clawing the new couch).
All in all, Crazy Mouse is an amusing app that can keep you entertained. Inexperienced users should have no problems in installing this software.
