Peter Pack Rat

Remember the Peter Pack Rat arcade machine? Nope, nor do I - but believe it or not there was one. Funny old world, eh?

Right - so you've heard of a pack and you've heard of a rat. Come on then, what's a packrat?

Er... yeah, well, whatever it is, it likes collecting things. Climbing down ladders, sliding down walls, squeezing through tubes, negotiating sticky spiderwebs, trampolining, avoiding baddies and swimming to collect things, to be exact. If he makes it back to his house with all the right objects from a level, he's a hero. If not, he's... well, he's not.

I have to admit this doesn't look like much - the monotone graphics aren't exactly the sort to bowl you over and the idea's hardly original - but the gameplay itself is a lorra lorra fun. No frills, no fancy bits with knobs on, just good, plain fun. Check it out.
