Despite widespread critical acclaim, The Rats sunk completely without trace - but if you can track it down you'll experience one of the most unique 8-bit games ever made. A word of warning, though - the game employed a dreadful multi-load system, and the end of the game required a full reload unless you had a save game handy. The snapshot abilities of most emulators make for a far more pleasurable experience, however.

The game itself is incredibly easy to use and will take some time to solve, even for those who have read the book. I thoroughly enjoyed playing it, and there's even a free copy of the book for those who haven't read it (and that makes pretty good reading).
