Aug 23, 2013NOTE: This review is for the X-Box 360 Indie version of this title.
Aqua Ktty: Milk Mine Defender is a X-Box 360 Indie title currently available for 240 points. The style of the game is best described as a “Defender” clone updated to 8-bit graphics. Your mission is to defend cats mining milk from the bottom of the sea from a variety of robotic attackers. You have a submarine and a few power ups at your disposal. The gameplay is pretty linear, though you can do optional zones for additional gameplay and challenge. Aqua Kitty offers a decent challenge, and will take a couple hours to get through the main story mode. Also included is an Infinite mode.
The presentation of this game is fantastic, the graphics are cute and well done, and the gameplay itself is good but a few gripes keep this from being great:
1. Lack of variety of power ups and enemies, which make the experience a tad repetitive
2. A little tutorial on how to get higher scores would have been appreciated, because despite getting the hang of the combo system, I still seemed to suffer against the stock High Scores.
3. A more noticeable sound when one of your miners is being abducted would have been nice, the very quiet meow can be easy to miss.
Worth playing? Absolutely. Fixing the complaints above would make it a top tier indie title.… Expand
Jan 10, 2013Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender is a fantastic launch title for the PlayStation Mobile platform. It's demanding in its difficulty, which may put some people off, but it can afford to be when it's put together this well on all fronts. Pay the small entry fee and you'll be grinning like the cat who got the cream.
