If you’ve got a kid, go quick and get him to help you with today’s level, Sackeratinator 3000. I’ll confess I haven’t yet gotten my own kid to help me puzzle this one out, but I fully intend to do so. Not because I can’t figure it out myself. Well…a little bit of that. I have only played seven or eight rat test cages, and one of those I’m just not getting. I need a new perspective.
But let me step back a second. Yes you read that right. Rat test cages. Basically in this level you allow yourself to be transformed from sack to rat by a lab scientist. He promises to turn you back to sack once you work through his lab tests. The only real problem with the level is the extensive prologue section about the lab doctor and riding an elevator and blah blah blah. I’m sure I’ll be able to skip it next time I play the level, but I hate skipping this type of stuff first time through, so I end up resenting it if it’s tedious. It is here, but I can forgive that because the little rat test cage puzzles pleased me so. In spite of the fact that there’s one I can’t crack. I’m sure my kid will help me figure it out. In the meantime there’s plenty more to try.
What’s more, the game really does pay you the compliment of treating you like a rat. Because as far as I know, rats don’t get any pop-up tips in their little lab experiments. I like the fact that as a sack rat, neither do you.
I cannot wait to get back to this one.
