Rat Attack intro and game screens.

Rat Attack is game based on the arcade game Nibbler, where the player (a snake) has to eat rats in a maze but must avoid their own tail (which gets longer as you eat more rats). This has to be done while navigating a maze of walls that makes trapping oneself easier and easier as the length of the snake increases. There are enhancements over the arcade game however; there are side tunnels (similiar to PacMan) where you can leave one side of the screen, and enter from the other. There is also a second computer controlled snake in the maze as well that also grows in size that you have to avoid.
