CBVGR: Bad Rats: Revenge

Video Review:


*Warning this game contains animated violence towards rats killing cats... and rats killing themselves. Cat and rat lovers look away*

Welcome to the Clearance Bin Video Game Review by Organized Remains. There is usually only one place that will put games on sale for $0.95, and that would be Steam. If you don't know what Steam is, it's a gaming portal of some sort. Check it out, because they run some really great sales. This time I got Bad Rats: Revenge which is usually $5, but I got it for $0.95.

Ever wanted an Itchy and Scratchy game? This is probably the closest thing to ever getting that. The game involves using boards, barrels, balloons, and different kinds of rats to kill a cat. You place these objects, and rats in a way that it will trigger a weapon to kill the cat. This can be a gun, a vault, and even a microwave.

The different ways of using objects, and rats to finish a level gives you the chance to be creative. I was suspecting the same cat death from each level, but was surprised there were many different outcomes to the cats. Placing objects onto the playing area can be a pain sometimes. This board especially... no don't turn like that! Luckily they had the option to rotate it manually.

After playing the game for awhile you start to realize that the game is crazy. I even started to laugh when I realized what I was playing. I'm also not sure if the music helped. Sometimes I think the music is bad, but then I find myself tapping to the beat. Listen for yourself... If you didn't like it there is a music volume option in the menu.

Final Say:
The game isn't perfect, but with each level giving you the opportunity to finish it differently. I would say paying 95 cents is a pretty good deal. Even the $5 non sale price isn't asking for to much. I got through half the game (Which I spent 2 or more hours on), but don't feel the need to finish it. If you're alright with many different violent cat deaths, and love puzzle games then this is a game to check out.
