Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

This was a fun one! Reminds me a bit of a game that game on old packard bell pcs where a mouse is chased by cats while looking for cheese. I about jumped out of my chair the first time the light caught me and it got funnier and funnier each time after. Neat game!

Kudos to you guys, this is the BEST rat game among all the rat-themed submissions I have checked.

The graphics, that splash with the lovely, shotgun-wielding grandma and the southern music create a very unique and funny feeling. Many games lack "gamefeel" and this game shows how important it is!

Controls are tight and the gameplay is arcade fun, so that's a big yes from me.

I hoped it would progress in some way, like two lights, or upgrades on the rat (speed, etc).

Also, I noticed that the colliders are somewhat messy. I kept getting stuck on certain objects. Cost me my life.

Anyway, nice entry. Well done.
