Customer Reviews

Not like the original

There is a lot that is disappointing. For 1. Every time you load the app, you choose your level. There is no option for continuing where you left off, even if you stop briefly to respond to a text. (You also have to change your "options" every time you load the app, as these do not save (i.e. tracking pad and speed.)) Highly annoying.
2. As previously stated by others, you cannot go diagonally on this version which really puts the mouse at an unfair disadvantage, as the cats move diagonally. The original "rodents revenge" allows diagonal movements.
3. The worst part is that to get quickly from one end of the screen to another, you must tap the arrow rapidly, instead of just holding the arrow in like on the keyboard and jetting across the screen. Even when doing this as fast as possible, the mouse is not nearly as fast as when played on the old packard bell; in comparison the movements of the mouse are awkward and hard to get the hang of.
These things make the game hard to enjoy; this app is just a teaser for the real thing. But change these things and it will get 5 stars.

Need to have a diagonal button.

This is very much like the original. The only problem is the controls. In the original you could Move diagonal and it helped with trapping cats and collecting cheese which is what give you a higher score. Other than that well done.


I have been trying to remember the name of this game for years and finally, the other day, I thought "what can google tell me?" They told me correctly. Then, I typed it in here. I now have Rodent's Revenge! There are only two things I dislike; the jabbing of the d-pad and that it doesn't up your level upon victory. However, still a great rendition. A few more updates and it will be a nostalgic masterpiece!
