Ratty: The Early Years

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The Ratty Game is a parody of Super Mario Bros with a comedy-drama plot, inspiring fight scenes and unlockables. The story is that a two-year-old blue mouse named Ratty is given three little coins to look after and is asked not to talk to strangers. However, he bumps into two thugs ('We're not strangers, we're thugs') who con him out of his money. Ratty beats up the thugs and runs away.

I have been working on this game since Hallowe'en, but wasted a lot of time working on other projects and deciding what to do with this game.

The game takes roughly a dozen minutes to play, with a cutscene that's just over a minute long and three short unlockables.

I am making a sequal which is darker than this one and is inspired by games submitted on Newgrounds during the late 1990s.

Hope you enjoy it, but I'm sure you will!

thanx lol!

A quick joke

Made me laugh a bit.
But you have to change the coins so they are less in the way.

Caltoons responds:



good graphics, you die when you dont even touch the enemy. you cant kill people, and it take 5 seconds for you to get back to the ground! good idea... just refine it ALOT more

Caltoons responds:

I agree
