[prMac.com] Seoul, South Korea - Bliss Software today is pleased to introduces Rat Fishing 1.0 for iOS, their extremely challenging puzzle game, where the goal is to kill all the rats in each puzzle environment. Featuring three packs (environments) with 21 rounds (levels) each, the puzzles taunt the player to find the correct combination of moves that will lure all the rats from their holes and to their demise. Players have control over just one element: where and when they strategically place bits of cheese, sure to lure the nearest rat. Moving rats set off a chain reaction of events involving stones, mines, cutting boards, boxes, sticks, trampolines, and conveyors that ultimately lead to their deaths. In each round, all the rats must be killed, numbering between two and four, to proceed to the next level.
The premise of Rat Fishing is quite simple: kill all the rats. Moves are also quite simple: players have a set number of bits of cheese that they can place anywhere at any time. The cheese emanates a tempting smell, whose vapors are visible as they spread only horizontally for a limited distance. Rats, whether in their holes or not, are irresistibly drawn to any cheese in their proximity and eat it as quickly as they can. The premise and moves may be simple; but the solutions to the puzzles are not.
At the easy end of the scale, the player simply puts a piece of cheese down on the sidewalk in such a way that the rat must inadvertently step into a hole on his way to reaching his dinner. At the more difficult end of the scale, players must carefully time the placement of each bit of cheese, anticipating the mechanical chain reaction of flying planks, stones, boxes, sticks, and more set in motion as a side effect of a rat trying to reach it. Each bit of cheese must be placed at the right place and the right time for the complete mechanical puzzle to perfectly function, killing every rat.
The three packs or environments are part of the cartoon narrative involving a cat that must sharpen his skills at killing rats. The characters, environments, and animation are all of high quality, and the relentless logic of the game will intrigue even the most hardened puzzle fans. Also included are in-game achievements, Open Feint and Game Center leaderboards, and game hints available as in-app purchases.
