Matt Lepus was just an ordinary mammal until one day, a tragic accident involving a truck-full of chemically-altered produce left him blinded. However, finding his other senses to be enhanced to super-lagomorphic levels, he did what any other bunny would do: use his powers to safely grab all the carrots from the local minefield. Such is the tale of Senso Rabbit, the titular star of Mighty Ducks Entertainment's debut action-puzzle game.
Move Senso-Rabbit around the minefields with the [arrow keys]. The goal is to collect as many carrots as you can, then return to where you started, avoiding hazards along the way. As he walks, Senso Rabbit's SONAR will pulse to determine if there are mines in his vicinity. If a green, yellow, or nuclear orange circle pops up in Senso Rabbit's sense range, that means a mine is underneath, and activating it will cost a chunk of Senso Rabbit's health! [Spacebar] will chuck a carrot in the direction you're facing, handy for setting off a cluster of mines that would otherwise be impassable, and should you find a laser visor, [ctrl] will fire a beam perfect for clearing obstacles out of the way. There are boxes to be pushed, switches to be activated, a veritable hrair of enemies to antagonize and, of course, achievements to earn.
Right off the bat, Senso Rabbit scores points for its unique, even innovative, premise. Only one other game about MineSweeping immediately leaps to mind, and that one doesn't have any bunnies in it at all! Do keep in mind that the gameplay here relies a lot on strategically planning a safe path through the field. Players in the mood for something twitchy might want to give this a pass. That said, those of a methodical mindset will find Senso Rabbit strangely addictive. Hop on over and give it a try, Doc!
