Although it looks like a classic shoot-em-up like Nemesis or Gradius this is as much a role-playing adventure as it is about firepower. You start by picking your crew and equipping your ship before blasting off to battle bizarre enemies, mine gems, find weapons and install devices to enhance your craft.
As you progress you unlock your crews' skills and improve the abilities and firepower of your submarine. Along with the gun battles, you guide the cats to explore the asteroids for gems that can be spent for more upgrades in shops. You can also meet and pick-up cat specialists too (mechanics, pilots and scientists) to help operate your craft more efficiently.
The result is a game that combines the fun of shoot-em-ups with the progression and exploration of role-play games. You spend as long tinkering with your craft's weapons and crews skills as you do shooting things. This is all wrapped up in a feline story full of interesting and appealing cats.
Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB EVERYONE for mild fantasy violence.
7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger players who can cope with the shooting elements can enjoy this. You don't need to deal with the detail of the role-play strategy if you don't want to.
