This is a really good game and VERY challenging. Anyone thinking this is a pushover, don't... just two levels in and it's got me scratching my head (in the good kind of "making me think" kind of way rather than feeling frustrated).

Anyone that likes World of Goo or other similar physics games ... I think they just may love this.

Challenging but excellent. I'm just now into the second world of levels and stopped to go back and figure out how to three star everything in world 1. This is one of the best physics puzzlers I've played in a while. I'm enjoying it more than even the excellent Icebreaker.

If its still free, y'all need to get this one! My highest recommendation.

No iAP, ads or other garbage. No crazy power ups to pay for or get in short supply. This is as premium as premium puzzle games get.

And get the free version too as it has 18 unique levels not in the full game.

Different levels? I'll have a shot later. Thanks!

Small note: why the free version has a 98.8 MB file size and the full version 40.3 MB?

average game

yeah this and HD ipad were free a few times... old thread here http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...ght=Ratventure

Lack detail...each world thereís nothing to differentiate the locked levels from the available ones. The instructions also feel a little shallow. Players will have to figure out on their own that if the wooden blocks arenít brought all the way over to the rats feet (even if the blocks are connected to a safe, grassy platform), they wonít climb aboard. Similarly, players might end up seeing just one of the mice climb up instead of both, even though the other is extremely close to the first. But those are small issues. Biggest problem is that when I tap and drag to create a pyramid, the wooden blocks Iím outlining appear behind my thumb. That often makes it difficult to see the color that determines if I can place a block there or not.

Yeah, it's not perfect, but the gameplay is VERY tight and figuring out how to solve each level is refreshingly challenging. Right now I'm eeking my way up the leaderboard on the first world and hovering at 16th.

I have noticed what you mean about locked levels. There is something to differentiate them.. it's subtle, but the unlocked levels are highlighted yellow... the locked ones are slightly darker.

My main negative with the game is that while it tracks highscores in each level there isn't a way to see the scores. The best I can do is use a piece of paper and track the scores that way if I want to try and replay each level for a new high score. I think this is something they need to add to the game, but for now the game is just so good that it's not going to deter me from playing.
