Use either WASD or arrow keys to run the rat.
current version: 3 lives then game hangs. 3 randomly-moving cats and 1 aggressive waypoint-AI cat. Eat all the cheese dots and nothing happens.
Here is the Game Design Document (not all of below is implemented in this prototype!)
Classic arcade action!
The name of the game is Rat Race (the name of the git project was chosen before I decided that).
You control a rat in a maze. The rat must clear the maze of little bits of cheese while being chased by aggressive cats. Each maze has big pieces of growth-hormone-laced cheese which temporarily turns the rat into a super rat that can chase and swallow the cats.
Like a real rat race, once you clear the board, you have to race again. But of course, somebody has moved the cheese(s) now.
3 rats per play, bonus rats at various score levels
score points by eating cheese bits, more for bonus peanut butter and swallowing cats (exponential score increase for each cat swallowed while a super rat, up to 1600 points)
Lose a life if a cat catches you and you are not a super rat
