Mouse transformation is an ability which allows mice to turn into shaman objects.
It is given to all mice when on mouse transformation maps. These maps play when there is a medium amount of players (5 to 16[confirm]) in the room. The skill Transformice allows the shaman to give this ability to up to 5 mice.
Mice are supposed to help each other out with this ability - but it can also be used to troll and kill other mice.
The ability was introduced on April 30, 2011 with V0.154.
Mouse Transformation icons appear in the shaman items box on the bottom right of the screen. Once a mouse is transformed into an object it is not able to move. To revert to the original form click on the mouse.
These are the objects a mouse can turn into:
According to game co-creator and administrator Melibellule, the concept of mice "transforming" into objects (thus the name Transformice) was to be the system of moving about on the map, but proved to be difficult or impossible with only a few players in a room. As more have begun to play the game, the concept has been re-introduced into a few Mouse Transformation Maps.
