If you're anything like this reviewer, the name of this game itself was enough to pull you in and see what it was all about. Rat on a Scooter was originally a mini game which came free with previous release Rat on the Run. The game essentially is just as the name states, you play a rat who rides a scooter and must continue to drive and jump platforms until you eventually miss one and fall off the screen.

The mini game was so well liked that the developers decided to make it a full blown game of its own, only now it also comes with three different modes, SuperCheese XL, Fuel Depot and Skill Course. The controls for the game are easy to use as the scooter automatically drives itself across the screen and all you need to do is tap the screen to jump or tap whilst in mid air to gain an additional boost.

The graphics are a nice blend of dark shades in the background and bright colours in the foreground making it easier to focus on the game. Like most Donut Games, the animation is slightly pixelated, but this only adds to the charm of the game. The sound effects are pretty much what you'd expect, with some cool sounds featured for the scooter when it boosts and grinds on the platforms.

If you're someone who enjoys chasing high scores whilst burning some serious rubber then this game is definitely up your alley. However if you're not convinced yet, you can always test out the mini version of this game.
