It started out just like any other day. Two young explorers, a boy and a girl, went out for a hike. Unfortunately, they stumbled across a cave filled with sleeping monsters-the stuff nightmares are made of. Annoyed at losing his beauty rest, one of the monsters zapped the fearsome duo with an evil curse and turned them into cats.

Determined not to spend the rest of their lives hunting for catnip and flea collars the pair decided to work together to break out of the labyrinth that the goons have banished them to.

It'll Take More Than Nine Lives

Here's where you enter the picture. As Catboy or Catgirl you'll have to use all of your feline cunning to destroy the monsters in 100 rooms. The monsters aren't dangerous-they don't attack and they're easy to smash if you can get next to them. The problem is that they put themselves in out-of-the-way, hard-to-reach places. You have to figure out how to use the moveable stone blocks, rungs, ladders, and platforms to maneuver your way next to each of the monsters.

The rooms start out easy. Move a few blocks and blast a monster. But just when you think you're cruising you'll discover that you're knee deep in kitty litter. Get ready to bust some serious brain cells! Fortunately for you the makers of this cart have taken pity on your blood pressure and included a special feature that lets you put the game into Reverse! If you've gotten yourself more snarled than a cat with a furrball simply rewind, relax, and start all over again.

Password and Round Select features enable you to pick and choose which level you begin on.

During some of the higher levels you'll use both Catboy and Catgirl in the same maze, with you switching back and forth between the two.

If you're one hot tomcat, this cart offers another feature that's right up your alley. Finish all 100 rooms and you can use the Edit function to create your own puzzles for Catboy and Catgirl. What's more, you can make them as cat-astrophic as you like!

Cat Scratch Fever

This cart's major im-purr-fections from this kitty's point of view are the Reverse function (which makes the puzzles too easy to solve) and the Round Select (again, too easy if you can pick the hardest puzzles right off). It's more fun to have to really work at it! Other than that it's a good cart for puzzle fans everywhere. Just make sure you land on all four feet.

ProTips:

  • Catboy and Catgirl can stand on each other 's heads!
  • When you're pushing boulders around remember that as soon as you put them close to a wall you can't move them again! Think be!ore you slide.
  • There's a dock that enables you to check out just how crafty you are by timing how long it takes you to solve each puzzle.
  • The only way to play the linal stage is to solve number 98. You can't pick that stage using the Round Select feature.
