Played the beta (early access), so I can already say what this is about even though it just released.
Quick facts: 80 levels + editor. Played 40 of it, took about 3 hours playtime.
On each level you get 3 lab mice who act like lemmings - they follow every path available, unaware of any possible danger ahead. You get a few Tetris-like bricks which you use to lead them to the cheese.
Soundsread more simple and starts that way.
Now add in jelly, crumbling, exploding, electric, indestructible and moving bricks, as well as water and acid obstacles. Did I forgot to mention the enemy mechanical rats? Oh well...
Still not enough, there are crystal or anima shards placed on the levels which your mice need to collect, to further finance your experiments.
... and you'll end up with a cute and entertaining try-error-rethink-repeat puzzler. For hardcore puzzler it may be underwhelmed difficult wise, casuals will have their brains twisted.
The price may sound a bit too high for some, though I payed the same and never regretted it. I would recommend it.

Puzzle games are all about the level design. I've played plenty of games that had interesting mechanics but were either too easy so you never had to play around with them, or so hard that you got stuck and furious.
Mousecraft got it spot on.
Decent difficulty curve, enough to make you think, not enough to get fed up and go play something else.
