Aqua Kitty is a fast paced retro styled submarine arcade shooter with optional 2 player local Co-op.
Blast through hordes of mechanical sea monsters in your kitty sub and defend the deep sea milk mining kittens!

StoryDue to a sudden shortage of milk, cats around the world are forced to seek out new sources to get their fix.
You and your team of milk mining kittens have overcome a fear of water to drill down under the ocean seabed and begin extracting vast reserves of what seems to be naturally forming full-fat milk.
Get ready for fast paced submarine action, defending the kittens from disruptive mechanical sea creatures.Key Features

Hand drawn pixel art graphics, displayed at a crisp 720p.
Awesome chiptune music taking inspiration from the best of the C64 and Amiga days.Development historyHello, here is a short history of this indie games' development which we hope will be of interest.
Aqua Kitty was made by a core team of two people with audio created by Electric Cafe and the game box art by artist David Hankin.
It began as a small modern-retro styled PC game, designed to run at a crisp 1280x720 it was created with a love of the 16bit gaming era and late 80s video arcade games.

There were originally 3 core versions of the game available of different hardware - PC, XBox360 and Sony PSM.

Sony version is the oldest and smallest version. A critically acclaimed launch title for PSM (Vita).

XBox version is the Sony version with extra added levels + enemies + refinements.

PC version is the most feature rich and improves on the XBox one with new Weapons + Gradius style Arcade mode + yet further refinements and extra details (with the Steam version being unique in having online leaderboards and achievements).

All the new things we have added to the Steam version will also be rolled back into the other PC versions unless Steam specific (ie Online leaderboards, achievements, trading cards are STEAM ONLY).

This shoot is not unanimous but I find it enjoyable with a real challenge in infinite mode. It's cute, it's retro and it does the job. I +

Kawaii cats, milk deposits to protect, and a submarine with a big gun to explode naughty E.T. Nothing to add, this shmup is a real pleasure.

Good the game does not always want to get started properly for reasons I do not know but when it walks we discover a game well friendly and entertaining. To be taken during an offer only.

I find the Game very heavy and very frustrating. For People with more Skill than me, it's certainly very entertaining. I have already had Problems starting at Level 7: https://youtu.be/cRKFNJBWl0g Therefore, unfortunately, no Recommendation from me.

The firepower is far too low compared to the number of enemies, the game remains easy in easy, but in normal, I would say it is rather difficult/very difficult. And in Arcade mode the firepower increases too slowly. I have not yet tried to played 2 (it is on the same screen). A game for scoring fans or for the solid nerves.

Rest assured, the game is much less afraid than its name. In reality, this is a little shoot ' em up quite classic. It stands out on the one hand by its universe centered around cats, and by the fact that you have to survive waves of enemies and not advance in a level. The principle is simple: you play as a pilot submarine cat and must defend your potzos cats in the process of extracting milk at the bottom of the Ocean (until then, everything makes sense) of wicked enemies under sailors who will only stop trying to kidnap your countrymen to take them away into the heavens. Your goal: to stay attentive to the Red enemies that take your workers while surviving the different waves of enemies. The more you advance in the internships and the more aggressive the enemies will be, the more mines you will have to watch. You will have a classic infinite shot as well as a more powerful shot that exhauses an energy gauge (which goes back automatically over time) as well as various bonuses released by some yellow submarines. It goes from multi-shots to mini buddies cats who come to lend you strong hand. Note that the game has a co-op mode 2 players locally, 25 maps for adventure as well as an infinite mode. Sum the whole experience is not unpleasant. It will be short, simple and not particularly noticeable... but not unpleasant. Ptête not at €6.99 However, it's probably still a little too expensive.
