Description

Kit Ballard is one of the top Breakers -- intergalactic bounty hunters, basically -- but she's also a cute, sassy, pink-haired catgirl. She's just arrived on an artificial planet called Hollow Wish looking for her next bounty, Terra-Li, but as soon as she lands her ship and her breaker key are stolen by a mysterious (and obnoxious) rival breaker named Justice. Now she has to chase after Justice, trying to find out just what's going on here and who Terra-Li really is.

Blade Kitten is an action platform game, based on the webcomic series of the same name, which takes after Capcom's arcade classic Strider. Kit can grab onto nearly any surface, be it walls, ceilings, and even certain enemies, climbing around to reach items and hidden passages. There is a heavy focus on exploration and collectibles, and most stages are sprawling labyrinths with many hidden areas filled with items.

Kit's attacks are relatively simple. There is a basic sword swing, and a stronger special attack that depletes her stamina. She can also block, throw smaller enemies, and even crash into the ground for extra damage. Her health and stamina will both regenerate after a short time. There are numerous upgrades available to purchase, including health and stamina upgrades, multiple weapons to choose from, and even many alternate costumes -- some of them more ridiculous than others.

Trivia

Development history

Blade Kitten was originally intended as the first part of a two-part miniseries. However, Krome Studios, the developer, closed in October 2010, just a week before the game released, leaving the continuation in development limbo.

Unlockables

One of the available bonuses in the game is an unlockable costume of Krome Studios mascot Ty the Tasmanian Tiger. He is described in-game: "Famous historical Sol system entertainment mascot. Some sort of orange rat." Ty was created by Steve Stamatiadis, who was the creative director at Krome Studios, and the author of the Blade Kitten comic.
