Game: Rat’s Retaliation for Android
If you have ever played the classic game for Windows called “Rodent’s Revenge”, then you will be in for a treat with this new game by XDA member SIAS87. As quoted from the OP, here is what it is all about.
The game is a remake/clone of the classic Windows game Rodent’s Revenge. It is a skill based arcade game where you take the roll of a Rat. You have to push blocks around to trap cats and turn them into cheese. There are obstacles and threats in later levels making it very challenging.
If you were familiar with the original this remake stays very true to the original game play but also offers survival gameplay mode. If you aren’t familiar with it then give it a go and experience a classic arcade game.
So, if you want to go try it out, then check out the discussion thread and have some fun!
