In Ratty’s latest, Rat on a Snowboard, you encounter various ramps, icicles, flags, cliffs, trees and exploding meatballs that you need to carve and bonk your way through. There are three different game modes to choose from: Two endless modes, one in which you just remain on your board as long as possible, and another in which you need to sustain a life meter, too; and a challenge mode where you need to accomplish specific objective. In all three modes you rack up points for the various tricks and jumps you perform.

There are three other older titles in the Ratty lineup, Rat on the Run, Rat on a Scooter XL, and Rat on a Skateboard.  All four titles are the same price at $0.99, and all four are universal games that look great on both the iPhone and the iPad.  There’s something special about the latest game, however  The gameplay is noticeably smoother, and the graphics seem to pop. Each release has been an improvement on the last, and this new release is certainly deserving of your attention this weekend.
