    This game is exactly what I want in an arcade video game. It is fresh, it is novel, it is aesthetically pleasing, it has simple controls, it has simple mechanics, it is easy to pick up, it is impossible to master, it is fun, it is frustrating, it is satisfying when you complete a level, it has a high skill ceiling. This is gaming as I remember from my childhood.

    The game itself features a cat that rolls around on rails. The levels are almost like sandbox 2D; you can go anywhere in the level, the purpose being to find the missing cats. One is near the exit already, one has to be chased around the level making an interesting obstacle course each time, one only appears after you collect all the 'coins', and the last one only appears after you kill the boss, and that only appears after you kill all the other enemies in the level. Each level is completely packed with stuff to do, and each level will require skill to finish to completion. The movement is novel, making it all the more enjoyable. Combat is reminiscent of old arcade blasters like R-Type.

    The game is fully recommended. The best indie title I've played in a long time. Easily stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Bastion and Mark Of The Ninja, even if they do all fill different niches.

    Excelente juego de disparos, gran originalidad e innovación en el control... toma un par de horas manejarlo adecuadamente y un sin fin de horas dominarlo, es un juego retador con dificultad NES

    Realmente entretenido y retador en determinadas situaciones del nivel, cumpliendo un formato entre la TV y el GamePad, lo cual lo hace bueno... AUNQUE también un poco frustrante por la jugabilidad en el intento de saltos y movilidad para alcanzar el maldito gatito.

    This is one of the coolest games you can pick up for the WiiU. There isn't any sort of an engrossing story, just lots of very well designed levels with gameplay that is founded on some very strong and innovative mechanics.

You'll have lots of fun, but be prepared for a tough road to the end. Despite the controls feeling very intuitive, they are difficult to grasp, and the game keeps throwing more and more challenges at your Gamepad making you question your mastery of them again and again.

    But when you're done, you're nothing less than a pro. You haven't cheated against the bosses, you haven't used cheap tricks to pass difficult obstacles, you haven't used cheap tactics, you didn't play on easy and "enjoyed the game for the story". In this game you can't do those things. You have to play like a buddy. :)

    P.S. Always a good thing to read the e-manual!

    It’s smartly designed, and while I wish there were more modes, what’s there is definitely worth experiencing.

    If you love cats and difficulty in gaming, Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails could be your next killer app for Wii U. In case you don't, you should not hold your breath for the new Dakko Dakko's title.

    Those who frustrate easily should avoid this title unless they really want to risk damaging their GamePads, but for those who love a good challenge, this title is worth checking out.
