    Mad Rat Dead offers an entirely unique rhythm action platformer experience, one that is so good you’ll want to surgically attach more ears to your body. Original, addictive and tremendously thrilling, Mad Rat Dead will make you love 2D platformers again.

    An original mix between rhythm game and platform with a great soundtrack, flawed by some muddled gameplay mechanics.

    If you’re a fan of rhythm games then it’s definitely worth checking out Mad Rat Dead. The vibrant punk aesthetic and catchy soundtrack alone makes it worth a gander. But for those of you that are rhythmically challenged then this is a harder sell. The repetitive levels and dull story aren’t going to do much for those gamers that are just looking for a fun platformer.

    The idea itself didn't seem bad: a mix of rhythm game and platform similar to what we saw in Rayman Legends, with its unforgettable musical levels. The result is instead a mixture that takes the worst of both worlds, between rigid movements and songs on average without bite, and an inexplicable temporal rewinding mechanics that only contributes to interrupting the flow and increasing the annoyance due to the continuous trial & error to which you will be subjected.

    I played the Switch version, but both versions of the game are exactly the same.
