Friday Fun: Verminator


The best day of the workweek has finally arrived again and that means it is time for a bit of quick fun. In this week’s game your mission is to outwit and eliminate the rats that have taken over a house. Are you ready to ‘be’ the better mouse trap?


The object of the game is to successfully eliminate the rats on each level using the limited amount of resources available. Things will start off simple enough, but the higher levels will definitely make you think!


There are thirty levels of rat eliminating goodness waiting for you.


Here is the first level. Placing cheese on the nearby flat area as bait will lure the rat off of his safe perch and into the water.

Note: The number beside the cheese (or other item) types in the upper left corner denote how much you have left to work with.


The smell of the cheese will definitely have an effect on him and the only thing on his mind will be a quick yummy meal.


One less rat in the house…


At the end of each level you will be presented with your score, rank, and be able to replay the level or move on to the next one.


The second level pretty much takes care of itself and demonstrates the negative reaction the rats will have to green cheese.


Must. Get. Away.


The third level introduces wooden boards into the equation…they will easily tip over unless cheese is carefully placed on them or if a rat does not land correctly on them.


Time for a bit of surfing rat fun!

Note: The blocks of cheese have a limited distance that their scent can travel, so choose your locations wisely.


Goodbye Mr. Rat…


The fourth level allows you to start using more than one kind of cheese in order to get rid of the rats. Levels further on will also allow you to use mini-bombs on the rats. Good luck and have fun!

Note: Click on the cheese/item type to select it or switch between types.

    It seems this game is broken… after it loads, there’s just a flashing cursor….

    @rcd – I experience that with quite a few flash games. >_< A good workaround is to view the page source and use the direct game flash file URL to open the game in a new tab. That fixes the problem for me nearly every time. ^_^
