Peter Pack Rat - Hokuto Force re-releases a C64 ratty classic with a number of fixes!

If you've heard of Pack Rat before then you were probably around in the 80's playing it in the Arcades or at home playing the Arcade conversion either on an Amstrad, C64 or ZX Spectrum. This game which was released back in 1985 by Atari Games, was ported over to home computers in 1989 by Software Creations and featured a very chirpy soundtrack by Tim Follin. The only problem with the C64 version however according to Hokuto Force was it had a few issues which of course they have set out to fix.

In this game you play as Peter Pack Rat who must traverse three unique stages to collect objects and bring them back to complete each level. The game features repeatable stages such as a junkyard, a sewer, and a large tree, with each area containing enemies that can be stunned to enable you to continue on your mission. As for the fixes and inclusive trainer for this latest version, they include a fixed timer countdown so it doesn't penalise the player during level complete celebration, as well as fixed graphics glitches (screen clear and hide sprites) during level transitions.
