The player’s mission is to make it through the final lab gate by crossing over pits and overcoming obstacles! Thanks to its original and energizing gameplay players will manipulate time, space, and gravity! Using the PlayStation®Move motion controller or a DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller: freeze time, stop the action and even rewind to re-arrange and place the available items to facilitate your fast escape.
All the items must be carefully placed and synchronized for the escape to work. If your synchronization doesn’t work, you can try again by rewinding time so you don’t have to re-start the level every time.
What can you win if you escape?
Escaping each of the 81 rooms to final freedom requires more than running, jumping, organizing, and synchronizing items. There are additional challenges along the way to keep gameplay interesting and fun.
Collecting pills will help you to unlock new world with amazing challenges.
Each victory lets your rat collect pills and win gold, silver, or bronze medals depending on performance. If you perform perfect runs, you win platinum rewards and trophies.
Funky Lab Rat will keep inquisitive and creative gamers busy for hours: Up to eight hours to finish the game without having all the gold medals; up to 12 hours to get all the gold medals; and up to 15 hours to get perfect runs everywhere. Are you up to the challenge?
More surprises awaits you if you join Diego, the Funky Rat on its way out! Challenges, quizzes and polls await you!
