Thanks for checking out our our newest game! Pixeljam.com has more if you dig this one.

CONTROLS:
Arrow keys move the rat
Shift key slows the rat (this is important for ball control)
M key toggles music
R key restarts the game
Spacebar pauses

GAME OPTIONS:
Use the options menu on the title screen to play the original maze, switch rats, switch music, and most importantly, play in SCROLL MODE. Some people prefer this method of playing, as it can help you find where you are going.

GAME MECHANICS AND OBJECTIVES:
Collect all cheese as fast as possible.
Collect bonus letters to warp to an alternate dimension of huge cheeses (after you collect all normal cheese). Collect all 7 for a chance at a huge bonus.
Eating cheese and cheese crumbs adds to your score and adds time to your timer.
Apples give you a temporary speed boost.
Balls have multiple functions, and can reveal secrets as well.
Some walls in the game are false... there are many hidden shortcuts around the maze!
Have fun!

Pure nostalgia! I remember playing this as a 9 year old kid.

one day rat maze. one day.

Very fast and slick-looking arcade-style game with infectious music, just make sure to turn on scrolling before you start. Only real problem with this one is the ball physics are too sensitive and annoying, even moving at them slow they bounce all over the f*cking place like they weigh nothing.

Meh. Not much of a puzzle, I wouldn't think. It's pretty fun though.

hard but fun

Even tough i foud 60 pieces of cheese i only found an A and an E. This game is a challenge probably impossible but fun.
