Pix the Cat

That was such a disappointment. I was actually pretty excited to play this – and did so on both PS3 and Vita – as I thought it would be a great looking arcade game to play here and there. It does indeed look great, and I love the music too, but either I’m really bad at playing it, or they just got it wrong. As far as I’ve been able to tell, there’s pretty much only one mode to play, going screen after screen (and it’s neat how the transition is done Inception-like), starting from the first screen each time. I pretty much got to the furthest I’d go on my first try, and never really beat that (although I got higher scores). The problem is in the way it controls, as turning your cat character (think Pac-Man) is already not as smooth as it should be in this kind of simple layout, and it just gets worst as you get further in because everything speeds up, which means you just frustratingly continue to have issues turning around properly in the mazes. It’s too bad, because it could have been a neat arcade game to jump into between long sessions on other games.
