Rat Shot

13/11/2009: Sweet new version with Facebook and Twitter high score posting and gameplay tweaks.

Controls: Hold the left mouse button and quickly drag the hammer to hit the bottle. Hold the left mouse button to make the rat flap his arms to keep airborne.

Use a rat as a projectile! It's not cruel, they enjoy it really. Slam the bottle with the hammer to project the rat into the air. Warning! The more oomph power you put into slamming the bottle, the less you have to keep the rat flying.

v1.0.2 - Fixes the ridiculous distances bug reported on here the other day. Thanks to Unbeatable-cloud for the feedback.

I thought this was pretty good, but it did need some more stuff. You should have probably put some upgrades or something in the game itself. I didn't understand how I was supposed to progress that much. At least it has all the qualities of a good projectile game. I guess that's what you call it nowadays. I especially think it's funny how you include a description of how the rats like this happening to them.

You know how crazy those PETA people can be. The graphics weren't that good, but did seem to work in their own simplicity. I especially like how silly the rats look at times. They seem more like mice, who are smaller, or at least the only difference I know of. It's probably more for people who are fans of yours. I like how they wave their arms.

nice game

I like it but...

1. if you made a game where people can cheat, don't bother with a high score post. it is meaningless.

2. if your game had a bug and you fixed it, reset the high scores too.

3. this is to the people who cheat at games like this to get a high score: a) Go ask your mommy for a hug because you obviously need more attention; AND b) get some skill and play without cheating

Finally, this is an interesting variation on many games that are out there like kitty cannon. It is not an original concept, but the style is unique - i like the bar setting and the hammer propulsion. the music does get a bit annoying - thanks for the mute button. overall very fun and replayable 9/10


Sorry, but this just immediately turned me off. Check out Toss the Turtle for how this kind of game SHOULD work.

something else

it was pretty good at first got a bit boring its kinda like alot of other games would of been alot better if u could do upgrades and other things such as the other games like this and maybe make the firing better swining the hammer down was oqword but keep it up and ull be makeing games like the pros

this was cool !

the game was simple addictive fun but just wont let go! i think it was ok but couldve been a bit better animation...
