Rats - Time is running out!

We all loved heist movies when we were kids, mainly because everything from the action packed moments to the great music manages to keep us pumped all the time. I didn’t expect to relive such moments soon, but Rats - Time is running out showed me that the gaming world can also create such amazing moments, all while bringing in front a whole lot of unique, new mechanics

Gameplay

Rats - Time is running out focuses a lot on the idea of creating the perfect heist. You basically have an objective in each mission, which is to grab the diamond, but many times this will be found in a vault, and you need to get the key and press plenty of buttons in order to win.

On top of that, the game allows you to gather coins that can be used to unlock a whole lot of interesting weapons, not to mention that there are quite a lot of blueprints to be had here as well. These things alone manage to bring a lot of replay value, not to mention that each map allows you to get up to 3 stars, so you can replay them as well to get the highest scores.

I like the idea that maps are time limited, because they allow you to create your own strategies. This, combined with the fact that you will have a constant set of alertness brings in front an entirely new perspective over the way you play, and it manages to always showcase plenty of stunning gameplay moments.

Yet for me the stars of this show are the puzzles that are getting more and more intricate. Since the game world is split into multiple zones, you do get a sense of progression and story, but at the same time, the more you play, the better the gameplay gets, albeit a little harder along the way.

For me, Rats - Time is running out clearly shows that a game can be both fun, quirky and intelligent at the same time. It’s the perfect combination of tight controls, fun gameplay and great puzzles, all of which add up in order to create a stellar experience.

Graphics

Rats - Time is running out has a cartoonish style, and I like that a lot. I think it suits the game perfectly and I definitely enjoy the way the game world is created. You actually feel like a part of the heist, and the alertness of the gameplay translates into a lot of fun. Animations are very good and the character design is spectacular!

Sounds are quite amazing as well, although the music can get a little repetitive. Still the soundtrack manages to bring in front a really good, moody music that suits the game perfectly.

Conclusion

Rats - Time is running out is an amazing game. I loved the idea of being a mice stealing diamonds and gold from kitties, but the game manages to take this to a whole new level, and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out. At the end of the day, you get a fun puzzle game with a lot of content and which really pays homage to the old heist movies in its own cool way. It’s definitely a title that I recommend you to take a look at!
