Copy Kitty Review
Copy Kitty is an action platformer by Nuclear Strawberry. The game combines fun graphics with something akin to a bullet-hell delivered via a sneaky platformer. The game is entertaining and the levels are short, but both of these are reasons alone to own this game.
Gamers play as a cat girl named Boki who accidentally gets sucked into a VR program known as Flux. Boki is tasked with traversing across a lot of different worlds, each with their own colorful and unique theme. The music is catchy and the graphics could be described as colorful and trippy but not distracting.
Boki should remind gamers of Kirby, she has the ability to copy enemy weapons. She can combine all of the weapons she has copied for a super attack. She can drop and pick up weapons at will. The game keeps this interesting due to each of the weapons having a meter which determines how much ammo each has. This plays into the super attacks and forces gamers to think before spamming one attack for no reason.
Some of the weapons fire only in one direction, others track enemies, others stick to surfaces, and others have remote detonation. The combat options are endless and with the ability to change weapons on the fly, gamers shouldn't have to worry about the game feeling repetitive.
Copy Kitty also features an endless mode for those gamers that really want a challenge. There is also a level editor with a ton of features. Both these are fun additions to a game that boasts over 100 levels. The price point of $10 is fair. The game should appeal to those who enjoy fast paced action platformers.
My only gripes with the game is the action gets very fast and if you are not paying attention you may miss out on some fun weapons. Copy Kitty is on Steam early access for $10 and was provided by the publisher for review.
Final score 3.5/5
