With a unique control system that allows for 360 degree platforming action and exciting 2D shooting, Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails pits players against an army of intelligent, mechanized rodents.

    Games which rely on a special mechanic as their selling point, can often get a bit tired before you reach the end, but Scram Kitty DX introduce new weapons, abilities and enemy types as you progress but at a pacing that means you aren’t overwhelmed, nor bored at any single point.

    A fantastic arcade game in the best traditions of Treasure, that takes plenty of inspiration from older classics but has just as many new ideas of its own.

    A unique 2D shooter/platformer hybrid held back by a tough controls and a steep learning curve. If you can persevere, you'll probably find yourself getting hooked.

    We're talking about a game with wonky controls and an even wonkier sense of balance, and it's probably better to just move on to something else and forget Scram Kitty DX exists.

    The game is a beautiful, very unique, and runs well on Vita so it pains me to say I do not like this game. There is no tutorial so I'll saveThe game is a beautiful, very unique, and runs well on Vita so it pains me to say I do not like this game. There is no tutorial so I'll save you some time: You navigate by attaching to the sides but to do the power jump you need to jump once and then again right before you hit the ground again and swing out on the stick. I never quite mastered the mechanics so it just led to real frustration. The game gets hard real fast and without the mechanic ever clicking for me I am just not having any fun. Expand
