Game Review

Brat is an action puzzle game developed by Foursfield and published by Image Works in 1991 for the Amiga and Atari ST. The game features isometric graphics and a simple point-and-click interface.

In this lemming-like puzzle game you play as the guiding hand to baby Nathan. You do not control him directly, rather you must place directional arrows and other icons to lead him around the levels, avoiding obstacles and picking up items. These items can then be used to help Nathan bypass other obstacles in the levels. Nathan will walk automatically and he will not stop unless stopped or diverted by you. Your goal is to keep him from falling off the map and make it to the end. To further complicate things, the screen scrolls and if it catches up to Nathan, he’s toast. Though made with cutesy graphics, it’s far from a simple puzzler.

When it was released it was met with mostly positive reviews. However, there were a few who were not fans of the game’s difficulty. Calling it ‘unforgiving’ and ‘frustrating’. I, on the other hand, enjoy a good puzzle challenge. Think you can handle the brat?
