Turned out to be more fun than I expected, especially the online mode. There is few Twitch emotes like LUL or 4Head, and I loved it. Looking forward for the magic tower mode, hopefully there is a mr Trebole too SourPls

This game is awesome!! I expected it for a long time and it is finally there. the rogue-Lite side is cool and the RPG system is very well done! level graphics and music, they are excellent! (at the heights of my expectations ^^) I recommend the site delicious-fruit.com to find games like this one! some bugs but nothing serious:D 10/10 I return to play TSHAW!!

I wanna be The Cat is a good Game. It's a Mix of Rogue Legacy and I wanna be The Guy. Of course, I wanna be The Cat can't top both Games, but is still quite good as a Pastime. Every time the Levels change, but it seems to me that there are not as many as with Rogue Legacy. Otherwise for the Money it's a good Game, but certainly not the best rogue-like Game.

Product received for free Maybe I got it for free thanks to a friend and although I have requested I think he should not have paid me. It's Just so great the game that deserves more money. Hilarious when you play with friends and for now and found no fault, I'm Homesick for just seeing the bosses like Alucat and Megacat (Not so but good). Recommended without a doubt.

It is Not a game for people of little patience and few nerves. If you decide to buy it, you're going to die lots of times. And The 100 lives you get at the beginning will not always be suficienes to get to the end of the game. It Is based on the game "I Wanna Be The Guy". If you have tried, you will find I want to Be The Cat a little easier, although it still has areas really difficult to pass. It Includes a multiplayer mode for up to 8 players, where you will have to be faster than your opponents to get to the end of a randomly created map, without bosses.

I'Ve been playing I wanna be the cat for quite a while and the first time I completed it (Normal Difficulty) took 5 and a half hours. There is Not much to tell the truth, the bosses and the levels are tested to the maximum and the controls are good. The only thing I did not like was the cooldown of the bosses to receive damage, the horrible curve of difficulty from level 2 to 3, the system roguelike and HP that I feel that they are there just to be and the system of lives, it removes a little the grace of the "I Wanna Be (...)" The multiplayer mode is hilarious with friends, it's a race, and the tension by dying over and over feels. Despite everything is a good game, I had a good time and once I got a blister on the fingers of the vice I put. Highly recommended, 8/10,
