After the success of Crystal Caliburn, the makers of that game came back with another pinball based on mythological legends, this one based on the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur.
Despite all the background material included with the game, none of it is really needed to enjoy the game itself. Just as no pinball parlor or arcade pinball game comes with a background and instructions on how to win, there is no need for you to read the legend or the instructions on how to "win" this particular game.
The board layout includes more ramps than those in Crystal Caliburn, and a slightly more complicated way of gaining stones and amassing energy, and if you are going to "win", you will have to hit those ramps a lot. Thirteen times, as a matter of fact.
This board also features a third flipper, located slightly better than halfway up the board on the right side. It is linked to the bottom rightside flipper so that their are still only two flipper buttons.
Play includes a special spot, that when hit, gives players a random special, such as multiball play or advancing one of the specials. Some spots have a requirement before they can be activated, such as the Minotaur special, which requires players to have all five stones and all spots in the "Loony Labyrinth" lit as well as 100% energy. When that happens, well... I'll let you find that one out for yourself, as it is rather nice.
Aside from the many new features, the game is rather boring compared to Crystal Caliburn. Despite the number of ramps and their placement, I just couldn't get up the enthusiasm for playing this game as much as for playing Crystal Caliburn. It's still a good game, but it just isn't as interesting.
If you have a chance to buy this game, do. It's definitely worth the money. But keep an eye out for Crystal Caliburn as well.
Graphics: They are okay, with some nice bull's head pictures. But the art runs more to letters.
Sound: Still very good. The sound is wonderful and the voices are so clear you'd swear someone was standing next to you.
Enjoyment: Very nice. Just like a real pinball game.
Replay Value: You'll find yourself playing this over and over, losing track of all time.
In Rats, the player is presented with a maze infested with rats who are capable of producing offspring and overrunning the maze. The player's goal is to exterminate the rats before this can happen by placing bombs, radioactive waste, gas, poison, blocks, plague rats and gender changing chemicals into the maze. The player views the maze from above and can place items anywhere in the maze.
