“Nightmares” block Mad Rat’s way forward!

“Nightmares” will obstruct Mad Rat’s way forward throughout each stage. They are dangerous, but you can beat them one by one through rhythmic movement.

But if Mad Rat runs into a Nightmare, he will die.

Did you get hit? No worries, just use the rewind function!

If you lack skill in rhythm and action games, then no worries, just use the “rewind” function. If a Nightmare kills you, you can simply rewind to your preferred location a few moments prior.
