Rat Race (こっそりラット Kossori Rat?) is the 9th game in Rhythm Tengoku and the 48th game in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It's about the Sneaky Rats trying to find cheese while running and hiding from Ms. Whiskers.

Gameplay

Stealthy Rat
Cheese Heist gameplay 3DS

The three rats will be running across a very, very long kitchen table. In practice, they will give you signals when you stop behind a stack of plates, but in the real game, there are no signals (in the Megamix version, there are signals in the real game, but the brown rat at the front will throw the stoplight away in the middle of the game). Its appearances in remixes have signals in them. Ms. Whiskers will repeatedly try to catch you, and when she appears, you have to hold A to stop behind a stack of plates. The music will go quiet for a few seconds before it starts building up, and the rats will prepare to run. You must let go of A at the right time for a clean getaway.

Controls

Button Mode

  • Hold A: Stop
  • Release A: Go

Simple Tap Mode

  • Tap and Hold: Stop
  • Release Stylus: Go

Timing Notes

  • Hit: Nothing goes wrong and you get away from Ms. Whiskers.
  • Barely: You jump a little when you hide, and when you run, there is a "boing" sound. A barely counts as a hit in Tengoku, but counts a miss in Megamix!
  • Miss: You bump into one of the other two rats. When hiding, the rat you hit moves out of position, and when running, the rat you hit does not run momentarily, but catches up fast. If you bump into the rat behind you just before Ms. Whiskers looks around, the rat will try to hide by curling up while sweating.

Stoplight

Stoplight
Yellow Means Cheese
This antique traffic signal has been used to train young rats for many generations. They train hard every night, since they know their survival (and cheese consumption) depends on it.

Skill Star

Near the end, when the brown rat throws away the traffic light, stop at the second stack of plates perfectly to collect the star.
