Fast Tapping Arcade Game - Catch The Rat

Rating: 7.5/10 - 3225 votes

There is nothing worse than having a bunch of rats and mice running amok in your house! Play as a fearsome cat in Tap The Rat and catch and squash all the vermin as they dash onto the kitchen floor. Kill as many vermin as you can and see how high a score you can get. Tap The Rat is a great game for the kids that will keep them entertained while also improving their quick reflexes and coordination.

How to play: Once in-game, your mission is to catch and trap as many rats and mice as you can before the timer runs out. For each squashed mouse, you will earn 10 points. To squash, a mouse, hover over one of them as they are running and click/tap to get them. Every now and then, a rat will drop a shiny gold coin or timer that you can pick up. The coin will give you extra points, while the timer will add more time to the clock.

One quick hint: you can catch more than one mouse at once by clicking/tapping in the area between the two, provided they are close enough to each other.

Tap The Rat can be played on desktop and mobile browsers.
