I'm a fan of the Rabbit, even though the game itself is not much (side-scroller
, somewhat repetitive). To me, it's the great music
for the levels, each with a retro 80's/early 90's feel: Journey
-like guitar for the dungeon levels, lush instrumental pop (think prime-time soap
music) for the Royal Gardens, the epitome of 80's synthi-pop for the futuristic
level, New Age
for underwater. The levels themselves contain witty allusions: the dungeons are straight out of Piranesi
, the Halloween
level is New England
late fall done just right
, who knew?), and the Hell level has direct quotes from Dante
: it's a cold place of sapient trees, with animate skeletons and blind crows (not in Dante, but who cares?) as villains.
The various kinds of foodstuffs (eat 20 and get a sugar rush) are also a fascination: initially, fruits, of various kinds, in Colonial/Early Victorian levels, they're all pies and hams, in the 60's, candy bars and sandwiches, in the Ghost levels, vanilla softcones, in Hell, sausages.
I will not hesitate to say that I often play it just to sightsee.
