Review of 'Kat Trap'

Rating:2 User: The Dean of Games

1987 Streetwise (UK)
by Graham Stafford and Jonathan Eggelton

What a mess. If this game was written in say, 1984, I would be a little bit more tolerant, but 1987? The game plays like any side scrolling shoot 'em up, but it's so badly written and presented that becomes confusing and unappealing. It's hard to control our character in some situations just because of the lack of key responsiveness. Also the background color gets easily mixed with everything else, making it a pain to look at.
