Rodent's Vengeance has now been available online for five years. Feel free to party and exchange gifts!
I would like to say thank you to website visitors that have made contributions to the Rodent's Vengeance game and website.
There is one game contributor who stands head and shoulders above the rest. Francis Partch, with his exceptional knowledge of the Rodent's Revenge game, has consistently made suggestions for improving the Rodent's Vengeance and bringing it closer to its predecessor. Some of his notable suggestions, implemented so far, include:
Rodent's Vengeance for Android is now available in two flavors. In addition to the standard version of the game, Rodent's Vengeance the Sampler has been added as a free alternative, for the thrifty and those who would just like to try the game out.
By request diagonal, horizontal and vertical moves are supported. In order to avoid using buttons on the touch screen for rodent control, a bit awkward during rapid play, the player can simply use a touch screen swipe gesture in the desired direction to initiate rodent movement. Longer swipes initiate multiple rodent moves. A compass pointer at the top of the screen confirms to the user the direction of the touch swipe, as well as the number of moves commanded.
For those who panic when under attack by the cats, and begin flailing in all directions, I have just added a shadow cursor that allows preview of the swipe commanded move to location. Just keep your finger down on the touch screen, while adjusting the desired target location, and then raise the finger to initiate the move.
Here is a You Tube video, in which I demonstrate Rodent's Vengeance for Android:
I use a g1 android phone, and I'd really like to see this game on the g1. can you go to google projects and create an android app for it? it should be easy for you if you did it in java.
Thanks. Let me know what you decide.
Hmm, interesting idea. If I find enough people interested I will consider porting the game.
I want to say thank you to Lauren M. for email that helped me locate and fix a problem with the online Rodent Game applet on the MAC.
Hello, I was just on your site and could not play this game. Is it because I am using a MAC? When I clicked start rodent game, the correct screen popped up but my arrows did not work to move the mouse. What can you recommend doing? -Lauren
I have added new key controls for the rodent game (online applet). Try these:
W - Up
A - Left
S - Down
D - Right
Would you like to receive Rodent Mail when there have been updates or enhancements to the game? Would you like to suggest cool new features?
