Rats! is a frantic game of rodent extermination. You must kill all the rats before they have a chance to mate and overrun the maze. To do this you can use bombs, radioactive waste, gas, poison, death rats, blocks, and gender changing chemicals.

Potential... but falls short.
I first discovered the Windows version years ago and loved that, so when I heard it was also available for iPhone I was, of course, excited. Here it just falls short though. The demo is virtually pointless with only one playable level, and as one review for the paid version points out, having a random stream of tools to use (as opposed to the original pick and choose of the Windows version) kind of kills the experience. Overall, it's a mostly faithful reproduction with the same graphics and sound, but with one change that makes it more unplayable than you'd probably think. I don't think I'd recommend this or the paid version, even at $1.
Different than PC game
This is different than the PC version for which the reviews on the app page are written. While similar, you can not choose your weapons. I really loved the PC version but this one is frustrating. I played the PC demo to death, buy I can't see playing this much. Would also like a feature to start on higher levels.
This game is super fun!! I'm bed risen with a torn ligament in my knee and this game is the only thing keeping ne going!!! Love it!
