Funky Lab Rat Lands On PSN Today

There are just too many giant blockbusters out there. Sometimes, we need a break. Sometimes, we need something simple and silly.

Today, Funky Lab Rat has landed on the PlayStation Network, and it's a 2D platformer that features 81 challenging levels and a time-rewind feature that might keep you playing for hours. You can find the relevant details over at the PlayStation Blog, where we learn the game is exclusive to the PSN and it is compatible with either the standard Dual Shock 3 or PlayStation Move controller. Diego, a super-powered rat, is trying to escape from a diabolical - yet oh so colorful - lab, and you must make it to the final gate by overcoming numerous obstacles. Time is your friend; you can freeze it and rewind it, so take advantage!

Yep, 81 levels over 10 worlds should offer plenty of longevity, and don't forget about nabbing those pills to acquire rewards, medals and Trophies. It costs $9.99 and could be well worth the investment, especially if you have a thing for platformer/puzzlers. This seems like a more fast-paced - albeit not as complex - version of Braid, and there's nothing wrong with that.

This looks like a lot of fun. I just bought my Navigation Controller earlier this afternoon (I intend to play Heavy Rain using the Move) and this seem like another game to keep tabs on.

It's often said that there's a lack of great games made specifically for the Move. But perhaps the PSN would be the best avenue to fill that void until the heavy-hitters arrive (e.g. SOCOM 4, Killzone 3, etc.) I hope the controls would be very responsive!

Everything I've read on various sites, say that it was released in Europe first, by six days, before it came over here.

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
