Somewhere between Match-3 and Puzzle games: with the right tactics you will survive the battle within the prison’s caves. But beware, only the smartest cheese thieves will survive! Grab your mobile and look after your plushy rat clan all day long.

Find and fight the love of your life! Rats are not just thieves – they have feelings and a strong yearning for family affairs. Every bride is looking for a groom. Every husband loves his desperate house-rat. Raise your own rat family and celebrate your rats’ wedding. And merge your baby rats to level up your family business.

You’ll only be strong if you have friends. Found your own fluffy rat clan and form a dangerous army of joker and vampire rats. Loot your neighbors and become the master of cheese thieves. Or join your friend’s rat family in harmony and tend to your own family affairs. Celebrate rat weddings and populate the caves with tiny cute baby rats.

Grow your rat family and be the wise leader of your devilish and angel-like rat pack. Do so by collecting cheese, souls and skill points to improve your clan. Lead your tribe of saint and sinner rats and become top of the notch!

Leveling up provides you with new caves full of loot. Here you‘ll get souls and cheese as well as important skill items. Your devil and angel rats are mad about those!

Win valuable in-game prizes in worldwide competitions and reach the top of the cheese pyramid. Every competition lasts for 72 hours. The right appetite for cheese and souls will lead you out of your subterranean prison into rat heaven. You decide whether you want to go down this road alone or in a clan with your friends.

Collect skill points, upgrade your angel and devil rats and crossbreed them to get even more sneaky super rats! Your rat party will soon include vampire and joker rats. Train them to become master thieves!

Play solo against the world and loot your enemies or join ranks with your friends and celebrate your family affairs. Play on Facebook and form alliances with your plushy baby rats. Or simply outperform your neighbor’s angel and devil rats.

Give your rats individual skills, crossbreed them and raise your own vampire and joker rats! But be careful: if you don’t care enough for your rats, you’ll lose them forever.

Be it cheese, souls or item sets – rats are hardworking gatherers and thieves and progress can only be made with the right loot. Steal cheese and souls from your neighbors or master gruesome caves and you’ll be rewarded. Every successful attack grants you the required skill points or cheese for your storage.

Oh Rats

It seems that every time I find a platform to play this game something goes wrong this is the I had it working on my computer it stopped working I had it working on my Kindle fire it stopped working I had it working on my Apple phone it stopped working it will not connect to the Internet even know the Internet is connected I've tried other games they work is game everywhere I go it seems to get you addicted it stops working. So I would advise not to purchase anything additional if you play this game because you eventually lose your money like I did

Good game, when it works that is

It's a fun game when you can play it. Quite often the in game bonus like opening a box gives you more then any other game out there. For example got 100 rat bucks when typically you have to spend real money.
However, unable to connect to server constantly and my internet is working fine. No sound if the game crashes and it does a lot when it reopens. Another words every bug that someone has listed in their review is still continuing to happen. Intenium is slow to respond at all. So buy at your own risk.

When it does work!

This game is fun when it works. I play it on my iPhone and my kids play it on the iPad and it no longer works. We keep getting a "Cannot connect to Internet" yet my internet is perfectly fine. I've tried removing the game and uploading it again and still nothing.
