Ninjas and cats. I’ll say it again.... Ninjas and cats. Now let that sink in. I don’t know about you but I’d be damned if I can think of a better combination. I haven’t been as excited for a feline concept like this since the memes of cats with bread around their faces and while platformers are a staple amongst the gaming community, let’s roll like a fur ball into this unique adventure.

Claws of Furry developed by Terahard for Steam, Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch dropping September 4th, is an energetic platformer, that although is quite simple is full of character and spunk.

This review will however endeavour to compare the experience from Nintendo Switch to Xbox.

Gameplay I found was no different and using the Joy Cons in the grip because it played just like a console version was my main play style. In saying this, I did prefer to play it in handheld over it being docked on the TV as it seemed to flow a lot better. The buttons are mapped out really well and are easy to navigate but the slight dodge lag I experienced on Xbox seemed to be slightly worse on the Nintendo Switch. The Switch also supports the 4 player local co-op without little mucking around, and is also a key element in busting through this simple but grindy platformer.

Visually, the game is the same beautiful and vibrant coloured version whether it be in handheld mode or docked with the TV. The characters and environments are crisp and clear running on smooth frame rates which is generally the case with games with low rendering and less overwhelming action sequences. One issue that ticked over was the font size, while it is small on the Xbox it is very small in the dock and even harder to read in the hand-held play.

Overall, ‘Claws of Furry’ is a solid platformer that with a few irritating but trivial flaws. Despite these minor concerns it was actual quite an enjoyable, especially when fully utilising the four-player local co-op. All I can say is that thank god cats have nine lives because I certainly needed all of them. Happy platforming.
