Rayman Raving Rabbids Arrives Via GameTree Online and Cider

GameTree Online, the digital publishing arm of Cider developer TransGaming, has released the Mac OS X version of the Ubisoft game Rayman Raving Rabbids. Starring a cast of hundreds of crazed bunnies, the title is a collection of more than 70 mini-games that Rayman must complete to win his freedom.

The game's simple storyline involves Rayman and some Globox children being kidnapped by the Rabbids -- each day, Rayman is thrust into a coliseum full of frenzied Rabbids, gladiator-style, and must complete three of four mini-games before tackling the final one. Success means another night in his cell, but it also means the receipt of a plunger. Once Rayman has accumulated enough plungers, he can scale the wall of his cell and climb out the window.

During the single-player Story mode, players can unlock new outfits, such as disco or granny, for Rayman to try on, as well as songs, such as Dick Dale's surf guitar classic "Misirlou," to play in Rayman's cell. Raving Rabbids also features Score mode, in which players revisit mini-games solo or against others and try to rack up big point totals, and Family mode, which puts the emphasis on cooperative gameplay.


In this mini-game, you must keep all the outhouse doors closed for a certain period of time
