The game tells a tragic tale in which you spectate in the view of a cat. The controls are tight and even beginners shouldn't have any trouble with this game. A true classic which will be looked back on by generations to come. If anything this game is ahead of its time. A real 10/10. Expand

The eloquent transitioning music set you up for the adventure of your lifetime as a cat in the Iranian military coup of the 50's. The cat controls well, the puzzles are intriguing; challenging even for a first time player and the story is interesting. 10/10 am now doing speed runs. Expand

    Let me start this review by saying that this game changed my life. A truly inspirational experience mixing an eclectic and mesmerising visualLet me start this review by saying that this game changed my life. A truly inspirational experience mixing an eclectic and mesmerising visual style with a beautifully crafted soundtrack. These two aspects are seamlessly integrated with simple yet still challenging gameplay to create a masterful and charming game. This game truly encapsulates everything the gaming industry has accomplished resulting in a work of art to be treasured and adored among true aficionados of artistic culture. If I were forced to rate this work I would give it a 10/10 but for its sheer intelligence in design I cannot with good conscience bring myself to call it equal to other less accomplished games. As such I must break the conformity of this ages judgement and award this iconic gaming experience an 11/10. Expand

In short this is a must have game and it's brilliant. 10/10 you will regret your life decisions if you don't play this. Expand

    Pretentious indie "game" that tries to teach about the 1953 Iranian coup but is weighed down by symbolism. You are better off reading the wikiPretentious indie "game" that tries to teach about the 1953 Iranian coup but is weighed down by symbolism. You are better off reading the wiki article about it because the developers assume the player knows the history of the event before playing which seems to negate the point of the game to me. Short, confusing, and not very fun, I'm not sure that this should be called a video game. Expand
