Official Review: Funky Lab Rat

Hydravision has released Funky Lad Rat exclusively on the PSN both in Europe and the US, a very special game in time for the Christmas rush. The story for the game is simple: a lab rat breaks a container thus having access to some miraculous pills which allows said rat to grow super smart while, at the same time, gaining power over time and space in a funky way… or at least that’s  what I got after watching the starting cut-scene. This is a physics-based puzzle game, and we all know that a good puzzle game does NOT need a storyline. And a good puzzle game this is.

Here’s the trailer so you can better understand what I’ll be talking about:

Funky Lab Rat Coming to PSN This Month


[tab:Game Information]
Funky Lab Rat, a game developed by Hydravision Games, will be heading to the PlayStation 3 later this month (November 24th in Europe and November 30th in the US). Here is a basic premise of the game:

The action is set in a lab, where players become Diego, a very cool, super-powered funky lab rat who decides it’s time to break free! Player’s mission is to make it through the final lab gate by crossing over pits and overcoming obstacles! 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.

You an control the game using either the Dualshock 3 or the Move controller. From the looks of the trailer, it looks like it will be pretty fun. There will be 81 levels in all, with plenty of physics-based gameplay to help with the challenge. Not bad for a game that pretty much came out of nowhere.

The Funky Lab Rat challenge: Get out! Stop time, organize,
synchronize, and re-start time!
The action is set in a lab, where players become Diego, a very cool,
super-powered funky lab rat who decides it’s time to break free!
Player’s mission is to make it through the final lab gate by
crossing over pits and overcoming obstacles! 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.

One of the 81 challenges in Funky Lab Rat is figuring out how to stand
on end three columns in the pit and put boxes on top of each column to
create an escape bridge across the deadly pit. Once you have it
figured out, stop the action (gravity, too!), then re-start the action
and make your escape!
But, it’s one thing to create an escape bridge, but it’s quite
another challenge to cross that bridge when the columns are teetering
and the boxes are moving.
It’s not so easy!
Getting through 81 levels will keep your little rat busy for hours!
So, how resourceful a rat are you?

Funky Lab Rat is rated PEGI 3+, ESRB “E”, and USK 0.

The game will be available in English, Spanish, German, French and
Italian at launch.
