Our Rodent's Revenge Review

Rodent's Revenge is a classic cat-and-mouse game. You, as a mouse, have to outsmart the cat and trap it in a 1x1 grid by pushing blocks. If the cat gets you, you die. As you beat the levels, more cats will appear and the game gets harder. In the harder levels there are new obstacles, such as purple balls of yarn, sinkholes, and mousetraps.

This is a simple game - there is no sound, and there are a total of 11 different colors. I can see why some people wouldn't like this game and would think it's boring, but I think it's a great classic. If you're looking for a simple, well-made game with great gameplay, get Rodent's Revenge.

So cool to see other people that got to enjoy this little gem with they were a kid. Fun fun fun. I would play in my dad's office on those old school PCs as a wee lad. I'm 23 now, so it was some time ago.

I believe this was one of my favorite games when I was 5 - 7, Always used to play it on my parents computer but after it crashed and all the memory was lost I never remembered the name but remembered what was in it, I'd recommend this game to everyone it's fun, and time consuming.

This game is 16-bit, actually.

nechus 7 years ago

For those who can't play this game because it won't run on 64-bit computers, you can easily run it on Ubuntu, using Wine. Right click on the exe file and check the "allow to run this file as a program" box. Then right click again and "Open with wine". Enjoy!

nechus 7 years ago

One of my favorite games when I was learning to use my first computer. Simple but incredibly fun. Much better than many modern games!!!

Mouse 7 years ago

For all those who are asking why it won't work on their computer, its because you have a 64-bit operating system(Windows). The underlying workings of a 64-bit OS is completely different than 34-bit. Its like the game speaks a different language and doesn't know how to talk with your computer. So sadly its like trying to play a cassette tape on a CD player, it will never work unless someone re-programs it :(

sixdollarman 8 years ago

It's a great "lo-fi" game! As an OLD 16-bit app, it runs on Win32 systems under an NTVDM (Windows NT Virtual DOS Machine). 64-bit architecture doesn't support NTVDM. Note: the original MS version can be found on all old Win95 and Win98 install CDs; no installer needed. Have fun!

Try Rodents Vengeance at reynoldssoft.com. But, it has no diagonals and the mouse picture should change when in a hole.

Here's a WIP of my Rodent's Revenge remake for pc (as mentioned earlier). I've also included versions for the GP2X and WIZ handheld consoles.

It will run on any pc from Windows 95 upwards (works on Windows 7, as that's what I'm using).


Donna Jean 8 years ago

I was working a 4PM -4AM shift and at night when i would get tired and not be real busy i would play rodent's revenge to keep me alert. I am so thankful I have found it and would like to get a copy of it on cd please advise me if it avaialable and where I might get it. Thanks, Donna Jean

tbear1942 8 years ago

Well the purpose is to trap the cats and when they turn to cheese you EAT them. I have ran this game on everything from Win95 to Win7 and it seems to work just fine on all. You can also use the 1,7,9 and 3 keys to just at an angle to move blocks and escape from the cats.

Jacqueline: The download link here on this site does work on Windows XP. Did you extract it first before running it?

Alternatively, there is a JAVA clone (you can download it or play online) here - http://reynoldssoft.com/rodentgame/rodent_download.htm It's not perfect - you can push the cats with blocks, but it's pretty close to the original and offers some extras.

Jacqueline 8 years ago

Ok so I read all the comments here and nothing helped! How the hell do you play this game on windows xp?! I really want to play!

I'm currently writing a freeware remake/update of this game (which will actually work on 64bit Windows7 based machines, unlike the original). I'll post a link to screenies and the full game soon.

It's an all time simple, but classic game that deserves to be seen by as many people as possible.

You guys, easiest solution ever. I thought I was having the same problem as you, but it turns out there was no problem at all. When you click download and it brings you to the new window there is a second download link you have to click. it's like dead center in the middle of the screen!

ps. just google visual basic 6. it'll be a free download on a microsoft site or something.

John Miller 9 years ago

I got this to work on mac. I dragged the folder into my Dosbox (dos emulator) BOXER, and it didn't install correctly. However you can do it on crossover, (or wine or darwine I think too, but I downloaded crossover first as a trial. I still have to figure out Darwine.) Anyway, for crossover (you can try a free 30 day trial) you have to download a visual basic 6 script (VB6). It'll be an .exe file that's only about 1MB. You install that first. You'll have to pick "unsupported software", name your "bottle"--i'd just call it VBasic or something I have no idea what they're for but they should probably be easily named)-- and install File (not Install folder). Then download Rodent's Revenge above, and repeat process, except name the "bottle" like Rodent or something similar, and install Folder. Then open folder and double click the .exe file (should be the only one clickable)

Now i found the link under the banner, it says "Download Rodent's Revenge" wtih small blue text.

But it doesn't work anyway.

Chancheay 9 years ago

That was the best game i ever played!!!I wish that I could Still play it!!Oh well

Gavin 9 years ago

To run this game on a MAC, you'll have to download a windows emulator, called wine. it fools the game into thinking you have a pc. Then just install the game in wine, and voila.

Gavin 9 years ago

When you run the .exe file after extracting and downloading, you get an error message because the files are in a temporary internet folder. To solve this, copy the files and paste them in a new folder on the desktop, and just to be safe, right click your new copy of the .exe file and run it in windows 98 compatibility mode. This fixed it for my girlfriend's windows xp pc.

What Michelle said is wrong. This game will NOT work on a mac unless you have an emulator of an old version of Windows or a DOS emulator of sorts. The game file is a .EXE. Macs use .DMG files for programs.

She also gave a link back to this exact page and said to download it here (where people were already having problems). Obviously she doesn't know much about computers.

To get it to work on a laptop, enable "Num Lock" or "Number lock" on the keyboard.. then you should be able to use keys you'd normally use for other purposes - as a numeric keypad.

I really enjoy some of the older style games more than the 3D over the top games that are all the rave. I just found this one because I was searching for a link to find a good tetris game for free.

I remember playing this in the 1990's - great fun. The cats are a little stupid, so with a little trial and error, you can figure out how to outsmart them. Of course, it does get more difficult when there are 3 or 4 of them!

One of the best games I've ever played. It beats most of the high powered rubbish thats going about. Hooray for simple fun games! But i deliberately erased all traces of it from my computer because it was consuming me. Wish I had kept a copy somewhere in a deposit box sort of out of reach but still obtainable. I also discovered that there are lot's of people looking for this game. Must be a favourite.
