Released in January 1983.

This game was also known some months back as "Wiping" (September 1982).


The main differences in this version of the game are :

* Rug Rats is higher scoring than "Wiping" (see below).

* The bonus items remain visible at all times and there are only three to collect instead of four (moneybag, gold bars and ring). This makes the game easier to play, as it is not as difficult to get the crown.
