For CNY, Superunion invites you to join a Rat Race

One-upping agencies that merely offer best wishes for the new year, the agency has created a Year of the Rat version of Pac-Man.

Superunion's Rat Race, available for Android devices, is a Year of the Rat maze game in the "tradition" of Pac-Man—only you're a rat eating grains of rice while trying to avoid not ghosts but voracious cats. It's adorable. The inability to see the entire maze at one time on your device makes it surprisingly difficult, and the cats may seem slow, but they're quite clever.

As of this writing, Ad Nut holds the No. 3 spot on the leaderboard, but doesn't expect to be there for long.

Says Superunion Asia CEO, Benedict Gordon:

In honour of the Year of the Rat, we’ve created a fun game for all ages to enjoy—from the young to the ‘young-at-heart’. We hope you enjoy a bit of healthy competition over the festive period. Wishing you all the best for the year ahead – Gong Hei Fat Choy!
