Herorats, a minesweeping game inspired by a charity program who trains African giant pouched rats to save lives.
* Game rules / gameplay
Rules are simple. They are same as any other minesweeper games. In Herorats, however, players can choose difficulty by selecting one of the countries that have different map sizes and varying number of mines. Herorats tried to reflect the actual landmine density of each country. Players can play Herorats in three different play modes, [Gates Mode], [Scrooge Mode], and [Practice Mode]. Each mode represents different amount of rewards and donations.
Players can claim larger reward and donation with [Gates Mode] and [Scrooge Mode], but they require Bananas which can be bought or gifted.
[Gates Mode]: When players choose [Gates Mode], approximately 18% of the total reward pool accrued at each round will be given to the players. Approximately 21% will be donated to Apopo Foundation. (Yes, we were inspired from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.)
[Scrooge Mode]: If you are only interested in maximizing your own reward pool (No offense), you can choose to play as Scrooge and claim approximately 35% of the total reward pool accrued at a specific round, leaving only about 4% for the foundation.
[Practice Mode]: 1% of total reward pool, either Gates or Scrooge Mode, will be transferred to [Practice Mode]. Players can STILL donate by winning the map. (Tiny rewards in this mode) 50% of the reward pool will be transferred to the next round.
