Rats - Time is running out! reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
The Child thief Rat If you've missed the day you can steal being a rat (in its most literal way possible) No doubt Rats-Time is running out! It's for you and here's my brief analysis. We put Ourselves in the skin of a helpless rat whose mother abandoned him when he was just a little while, but the story focuses on how he became corrupt and become a black hat mouse and thus steal in things. Our goal as Pilferer is to go from home to home touring some of the fictitious cities that Rats-Time is running out! has for us. We Start from the lower class (by calling it a way) and we must steal a gem on our first mission, but then you realize that the goal of all levels is to get the gem in every home or mansion, but adding very fun goals and That will make you think and think as you progress the game. You'Ll Wonder, what other accomplishments can you complete besides stealing the gems successfully? Ah, here comes the grace of then, because we have the possibility of fulfilling other objectives: board «x» Quantity of coins, competing against the clock, discovering secret walls among others. Enemies? A Lot of them! And The most typical is the policeman cat, Fox and a kind of thug in the form of a bear who, by the way, seems to be a member of the Italian mafia. Of course, it must be taken into account that to steal the gems we must go through narrow and long roads that will be blocked by all these agents of the Commissioner. As Well as obstacles of the game like completing a puzzle or activating certain peculiarities to open doors. But We must also steal some keys before we can open a vault and take with us our cherished blue gem. However, we must be very careful because we must not be discovered. And If we are discovered we must run all over the level until our hunter surrenders, or else he is completely tired. This you will know by means of a red shadow that is the point of detection of the police officer. If You Enter your space; They'll catch you. What if the time is up? He'Ll catch You the same way. Its [B1] gameplay [B1] is one of its strengths, as the mechanics of the game give us many possibilities. Since it will not only focus on navigation controls, but on other buttons where we have to activate certain skills that will be given to us if we successfully steal a plane of invention; But, there is a negative point in that part, and you will need the money stolen from the houses and mansions you spend to create and buy the skills. One of them, run as Speedy Gonzales will give us the necessary impulse to complete each of the levels in the shortest time possible, or, buy the ability to attract the coins without the need to go for each of them (although not very useful , to tell the truth). The graphic aspect is very outstanding. And is that the visual art of the video game is very nice, but not very striking. What The casual player might like is to definitely appreciate the game map which, incidentally, did I mention that we should cross from city to city? The most striking is Swine Island City. A very colorful city in the moonlight and in which its ends we can find the doors to the sea. Finally, the sound. It is Also a very strong point in his favor, as no song is monotonous and, in addition, are very style «Ganster». The effects of sounds like: grabbing the coins, walking between the halls, opening doors and the strident noises of certain peculiarities are more than merely attractive. As Well as the meows of police officers when they manage to detect you. In short, Rats-Time is running out! It's a video game that should be in your Steam digital library. It's Worth taking a chance. You Won't waste your time, as well as your money. I Could count other aspects, but I think this is more than enough. However, I will not make a negative point that I hate in this game: bugs. And I don't mean that levels are easy, rather; There are times when the screen will vibrate and affect all levels as you were tuning a channel or a game system error would appear. It Is very annoying, and it is something that needs to be solved. The only option is to go out and enter the game again, and that "branded" appears again? Well, repeat the same thing. Recommended to try every one of your cherished levels under the blanket of the night. Edit: To have my badge. 9.0
