PETER PACK RAT is fun for all ages, males and females alike.

The cast of characters includes Peter Pack Rat (our hero) and the Villains (boo, hiss!) – Riff Rat, leader of the Rats of Flatbush, Scrapper the junkyard dog, Sticky the spider, Nite Owl, Slugger the bat, Big Al the alligator, Diamond Jim the snake, and Clawd the cat.
Player controls Peter Pack Rat on his quest to collect treasures and bring them back to his nest. The bad guys try to stop him.
Peter Pack Rat consists of three different backgrounds: the Junkyard, the Sewer and the Tree. These backgrounds provide the setting for 15 levels of unique game play, if the player is skilled enough to complete level 15, further challenges remain.

Operator Options
