Blade Kitten is based on an anime webcomic series and the game marries a striking art style with side scrolling 2D gameplay to create a fresh take on the platform genre.
From the outset, you take control of Kit as you work your way through the levels that make up Hollow Wish, using the floating Darque Blade to dispose of enemies with a combination of close quarter and long-range attacks. Your blade comes in handy for activating switches and for clearing new paths too.
Dotted throughout the levels is Hex, the standard currency on Hollow Wish, and it’s worth taking your time exploring each level to uncover hidden treasure chests which give a healthy boost to your total.
Helping you along is Skiffy, small in size and useful for picking up Hex in unreachable locations and for unlocking certain areas within levels; just look out for the Triangle icon on-screen, press the Triangle button and Skiffy jumps in on the action.
You'll also interact with some of the other inhabitants of Hollow Wish on your quest, such as Noots, dinosaur-like creatures you can ride to cover distance more quickly or to help you reach up to otherwise inaccessible areas.
At any point during your mission, you can bring up the Breaker Menu by pressing the SELECT button on your Wireless Controller. As well as giving you an overview of your game progress, you can access the Weaporium to purchase health, weapon and costume upgrades using your hard-earned Hex.
