Review - Feed the Rats

By

Feed the Rats is an engaging physics-based puzzle game for iOS with a Victorian steampunk theme.

In my home feeding the rats is definitely not something we want to do - but in this case it's ok; Feed the Rats is a cute and compelling puzzler for iOS devices.

Feed the Rats is the first game launched by Great Griffon, a development studio made up by colleagues Valentin Jalba and Filip Ilu. It features an appealing Victorian steampunk-themed art style and increasingly more challenging levels.

The premise is simple: you must break objects so a cheese wheel falls safely to your waiting, famished, rat at the bottom centre of the screen. Break the wrong objects or break them in the wrong order and the cheese eludes your poor rat. By contrast, get the cheese to him safely and he ports up contentedly.

It sounds simplistic but the levels increase in difficulty as you progress through the manor rooms and gardens, with different objects to use and different configurations of boxes and cannonballs and conveyors to work through.

Challenge yourself to get the cheese to your rat in the smallest number of moves, or challenge your friends to reach the same high level as yourself.

Feed the Rats will make you think, but armed with a cool head and some basic physics thinking you can work your way through the puzzles.

My only gripe is the game has a small pause when retrying a level, slightly interrupting your flow when you are angrily trying the same level for the n'th time, but this is a minor concern with all else playing smoothly.

Feed the Rats can be purchased on the iOS App Store for iPhones and iPads.
