Rat Catch




Published in the book The Giant Book Of Games For Your BBC Micro from Fontana Publishing, which contains the following description:

In this game, based on one written by Graham Curling, you have to guide your rats using the 'Z' and 'X' keys. The rats hold a bucket, and you have to catch falling bricks in this bucket to build up a wall.

The points you score increase as the wall gets higher and the bricks change colour. As you'll see when the game is in action, the user-defined graphics are particularly effective.

Six catches in a row will gain you a bonus which is added to your score at the end of the game. Six misses in a row costs you a life. You have five lives at the start of the game.

There are 300 bricks dropped during each run of the game. The game ends either when you lose your lives, or all 300 bricks have been dropped. The brick tally is clocked up continuously on the screen and there is a high-score facility, so you can try and beat your best score from earlier rounds.
