Rats-and-Spears is a simple but nice game in which you are a rat who loves throwing the javelin. In this game, you must gain speed and throw the javelin at the right time to make it fly away and land at a great distance. Your scores will be saved as you play, so you can always break your best records. Every time you break a record, the other rats will throw roses at you, but if you can't break it, they will throw eggs, tomatoes and other garbage. The trick to win the game is to gain speed and throw the javelin seconds before reaching the limit.
The controls are extremely simple, since you do everything with the "Space" keyboard key. You must keep the key pressed to run and gain speed, then release it for a few seconds and press it again to raise the spear, and press it again to launch the javelin. Unfortunately, the game only includes one mode, so you won't be able to play against your friends, which would have been fantastic. The game features simple but nice graphics, average sounds, and suitable music.
In short, if you are looking for a simple game to pass the time, Rats-and-Spears may work for you.
