Even though the rabbids have been around for a few years, they've never had their own full-blown adventure to match their outrageous personalities - until now. In Rabbids Go Home these goofy creatures run amok on Earth with their shopping cart. The further you go in this game the more challenging it gets, with maze-like levels and the rabbids laughing and yelling with insane glee the whole time.
Watch The Fur Fly
For some reason the earth-trapped rabbids get it in their heads that they're actually from the moon. There's no logic behind this but that doesn't stop them from doing everything they can to return home - by building a gigantic pile of trash (garbage, clothing and other objects) from the humans they meet. You play as a pair of rabbids, one pushing a shopping cart while the other rides inside making room for all the goods, and run through airports, neighborhoods and anywhere else humans can be found in search of enough stuff (from diapers to soda cans) to stretch into the sky.
Your goal in each level of Rabbids Go Home is to collect as much stuff as possible while avoiding the traps and enemies that stand between you and your chance to return home. The objects you can collect have a squiggly white circle around them - just roll over these objects with your cart to add them to your stash. Some objects are obvious, others are hidden. There are also humans whose clothes are very valuable in helping you reach your goal. By screaming near them, you strip them of their outer clothing and they prance away in their underwear, learning to never again cross a determined rabbid.
While humans are pretty meek at first, they get fiercer as you advance in the game and steal more and more of their precious stuff. They'll attack you in a variety of ways: hand-to-hand combat, unleashing their aggressive attack dogs or by hurling bombs at you. Plus, there are levels that place you in an inner tube, although these levels don't take place in the water. Instead, they have you bouncing around a desert environment littered with cacti, and it takes only one brush with these bristled plants to stop you in your tracks.
A Rabbid Good Time
But the silliest part of Rabbids Go Home is the character creator. You can paint your rabbids, rearrange their ears and eyes or squash their heads. You can create a huge variety of famous rabbids, from Pikachu to Kermit The Frog to Barack Obama - it's lots of fun trying to come up the most ridiculous creations possible. It's also a lot of fun trying to collect every object in each level, unlocking hats, tattoos and all sorts of other items to personalize your rabbids.
