Funky Lab Rat is a puzzle platformer where you play as a rat who has decided to escape the lab and be free. there are 81 different challenges, across 10 worlds, to complete with your super powers.

Press Release

FRANCE – 15 NOVEMBER, 2010 – Hydravision Entertainment announced today its super-challenging action and puzzle platformer Funky Lab Rat will scamper to PlayStation 3 system on November 24th in Europe and on November 30th in America.

Funky Lab Rat is an exclusive to PlayStation 3 system at launch and will be available for download on the PlayStation®Store in both America and Europe.

Thanks to its original and energizing gameplay players will manipulate time, space and gravity!

Using a PlayStation®Move motion controller or a DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller: freeze time, stop the action and even rewind to re-arrange and place the available items to facilitate your fast escape.

Think it’s easy to be a running rat? It’s because you haven’t been exploring yet one of the 10 worlds yet with an increasing level of difficulty! Just check out the first Funky Lab Rat trailer here and you'll fall for it:

Connect on the official website to discover more about what awaits you in Diego’s world

The Funky Lab Rat challenge:  Get out! Stop time, organize, synchronize, and re-start time!
The action is set in a lab, where players become Diego, a very cool, super-powered funky lab rat who decides it’s time to break free! Player’s mission is to make it through the final lab gate by crossing over pits and overcoming obstacles! All the items must be carefully placed and synchronized for the escape to work.  If your synchronization doesn’t work, you can try again by rewinding time so you don’t have to re-start the level every time.

One of the 81 challenges in Funky Lab Rat is figuring out how to stand on end three columns in the pit and put boxes on top of each column to create an escape bridge across the deadly pit.  Once you have it figured out, stop the action (gravity, too!), then re-start the action and make your escape!

But, it’s one thing to create an escape bridge, but it’s quite another challenge to cross that bridge when the columns are teetering and the boxes are moving.  It’s not so easy!  Getting through 81 levels will keep your little rat busy for hours!  So, how resourceful a rat are you?

Funky Lab Rat is rated PEGI 3+,  ESRB “E”, and USK 0.
The game will be available in English, Spanish, German, French and Italian at launch.
