Wow ! This game is great i thought a platforming hack and slash game with a strong exploration focus i can dig it. But as i played it my enthusiasm drained out of me and into a disapointing puddle on the floor. Lets start with the platforming which it a bit easy and a lot repetitive. First off you can climb 99% of the walls so theres no challenging jumps to pull of just climb up the wall and along the ceiling to get were you need to go. Now, about that hack and slash gameplay i mentioned. At first i liked it do flips and flail your sword about, sweet i wonder what cool combos and special skills ill unlock? None? This is it? All you do is jump from side to side over an enemy and flail your sword. Im not kidding all the enemies are susceptible to this, it wins everytime. So the challenge of the combat fell out with an audible, THUMP! Now the exploration is ok if you like finding collectibles in games there a metric ♥♥♥♥ ton of crap to find. Having said that they serve no purpose but to give you money to buy upgrades you never need and cosmetics. This game started off great but the lack of pregression or a structured difficulty curve makes this game pretty stale. After a pretty short boring story with pretty cringeworthy voice acting. I was done, I only played through episode one i was so paralyzed with boredom I wont pay for more. Cannot reccomend.

It's the cheesy type of fun.
A fun sidescrolling game with hovering swords and energy shields.
The controls are precise but kinda awkward at the same time.
All in all, it didn't catch my taste.

The controls are not solid, the game is buggy, the Kit is a one-dimensional, and the story of the first doesn't make any sense.

That said, I still enjoyed this game. Perhaps in a "so bad it's good" kind of way. The sword fighting mechanic is unique from my knowledge. And it's totally worth it at this price.

I bought both the basic game and the Episode 2 DLC at a discount, and I find that the game overall is worth it. I like the art style very much. The characters seem interesting, though the main character is a little annoying at times, but unfortunately they're not explored much in the game storyline. As for the game itself, I like the variety of actions offered by the game mechanics. The level design also includes some decisions that reduces potential frustrations in this type of game. For example, in most places there's no "instant death" due to a jump miscalculation, and there's aiming aid for jumping in some of the narrower platforms. I feel that this, combined with some aspects of the game mechanics (e.g. ability to climb walls, health that regenerates after a while) encourage exploration.

There are some parts of the game that can be improved though. For starter, movement constantly feel as if the player character is on the verge of sliding. Enemies and early levels feel repetitive, and towards the end of Episode 2 there's a sudden increase of instant death possibilities, which is IMHO an annoying change. I also don't really like the way boss fights are implemented, with only one "correct" way to cause damage. I hope these aspects can be improved in future games in this series.

I got the main game free, but I paid for Episode 2 and the other bits. Well, here goes...

To start, it's not a very complicated game, but it isn't too simplistic either. It has a really nice balance that works for the world, allowing you to appreciate everything. It really seems to draw on older sidescrolling games, which is a lot of great fun if you enjoy those like I do! Sadly it's only recently I've truly been able to appreciate the game and really play it, as I finally have a computer that isn't total crap.

The characters are funny, quirky, and just overall really good. There's more to them than meets the eye when you first see them. I've got a bit of a crush on Kit, I must admit. It's not often I see a female lead, and less so one that really captures my interest for being just a really good character. Flirtatious, sarcastic, but also sympathetic, she really does come across as human (or Felion, rather? Haha) and not just a robot or there to show off 80 percent of her skin. But don't let that fool you, she's still sexy and she knows it! (worth noting: I am also very happy because unlike some games where I find the voice acting to be very wooden, this has a lot of "character" in it.)

The only thing that makes me sad is that the game overall is a bit shorter than I hoped. But that just means I really enjoyed it and I want more of it, so don't take that as a complaint, per se.

To conclude: It's a REALLY fun game, with some pretty great replay value, in my own humble opinion. Though I got this for free, if I could pay for it I would! It's worth the price, it really is.

For the price and even on sale sure grab it if you like platformers. However the story is crap and the game itself is a pretty subpar platforming sidescroller,

Well, finally beat Blade Kitten, gotta say the wait for episode 2 was worth it. I played this game back on the console, sadly without episode 2 it feels incomplete. But anyway, the story is you play as Kit Ballard, a Felion Breaker (Bounty Hunter(tress)) who gets her breaker key (basically like an ID card) stolen by ehr rival, Justice Kreel. What follows starts from a simple search for the key to an all out conspiracy with factions and an ancient alien force Kit is familiar with.

The game is a 2.5 D platformer, and it's pretty enjoyable, when you get past a few bugs it's got with platforming. Besides that the game is fun. After a long wait, we got our episode 2, and boy did it wrap it up, it felt a bit rushed, but given the fact they never got the chance to release the complete game due to legal reasons and the team shrank as a result, I can kinda understand the reason.

But the game is done, and it has a lot of colelctables for me to still get, guess i won't be done with Hollow Wish just yet. If you want a fun platformer, i say get this and episode 2 of the game to finish it off. Plus the more people who buy it, one day we'll get the complete game on consoles, so please, get it if you want a fun game.

The game surprise me. The story has no wonders but its really good with a few changes. The main character is charmant. Sure there could be more story parts, more about the history, more mysterious dungeon parts with special creatures, but its fine. The graphics are good (level design is good espacally the secrets, but i wished more treature with unique prices then only money, that you can sell for really good prices or new items or upgrades, helpful or interesting things from the history of the game, the living beeings has all special design and all looks like a living world), sound is fine, the game length is good for 2.99 or 7.98 for Episode 1/2 even if Episode 1 has more levels, sure Episode 2 (isnt 6 years old). So the main game is really good, Episode 2 a bit short maybe you buy it with discount, but if you love jumping, running, fighting its good (even most enemies need no tactic and there could be a few more, buts a INDIE LOW BUDGET GAME, so what you want more? A few secrets are really well hidden and challenging. The achievements are not to hard, but i wished there would be more step by step achievement like killing 1000 , 2500 enemies or for defeat 100 of that type of enemy or get 100 red crystals, 10 fishes or for beating every level in a special time under 5-710 min. Trading Cards and Steam Cloud are great support (the support at facebook is friendly & helpful too). I personally give this game 87% and for Episode 1 for 2,99 a 95 %. if you dont like this Adventure Genre, Animes or only AAA+ games, dont buy it. Thx for reading and hopefully enjoy.

Ecco un platform che vale la pena di giocare, nei panni di Kit Ballard dovremo dare la caccia ad una ricercata su un pianeta in cui è appena atterrata. L'azione si svolge in 2D muovendosi solitamente verso destra o sinistra con gli ovvi alti e bassi. Graficamente il gioco offre uno stile manga molto accurato, gli intermezzi sono perfetti per gustarsi le animazioni e le espressioni facciali dei personaggi. Il sonoro non è nulla di che, qualche tema ispirato e decenti effetti sonori. Come giocabilità ci troviamo piuttosto bene, Kit dispone di un nutrito set di mosse che consentono di esplorare bene i livelli graziati da un level design curato e ben studiato. Molti sono i segreti da recuperare e il livello di difficoltà è ben calibrato. Che dire? Forse 1200 MP sono troppi ma il gioco merita, imperdibile se torna in Deal!

Blade Kitten è un divertente action/adventure con molti elementi dei platform, dei quali adotta la vista di gioco, cioè quella laterale. La protagonista è la simpatica nonchè sexy micetta Kit Ballard dalle forme molto antropomorfe, anzi molto ginomorfe. Credo che il piacere di giocare dipende molto proprio dal fatto se siete sensibili al suo fascino mentre la manovrate mentre si arrampica o si appende o mentre mena fendenti di spada a destra ed a manca. Dei platform il gioco non eredita affatto la difficoltà della regolazione dei movimenti o dei salti, in quanto mai vi sembrerà difficile raggiungere qualsiasi punto del fondale e mai si morirà cadendo. I combattimenti non sono proibitivi, soprattutto quando prederete la spada più potente, con la quale niente vi fermerà . Tutto il gioco è un po' al femminile poichè praticamente tutti quelli che incontrerete sono personaggi di sesso femminile. La grafica è da cartoon e c'è una parvenza di storia di sottofondo arricchita di scene di intermezzo. Il personaggio ha limitate possibilità di upgrade ed inoltre, da donna che si rispetti, un bel guardaroba da provare. Adesso elenco i punti che mi sono piaciuti meno. I nemici, come gli scenari, sono poco vari. Non si capisce bene quando è possibile sferrare le mosse speciali. Spesso i nemici o Kit stessa sembrano spostarsi in piani di movimento sfalsati rispetto a quello prestabilito, per cui, per esempio, Kit non riuscirà a colpirli; in un altro caso che mi è capitato Kit non è riuscita più a salire su una piattafroma perchè era dietro la stessa e son dovuto uscire al menu principale e ricaricare la posizione precedente. Il sonoro è adeguato all'atmosfera da cartoon del gioco, ma mai mi ha entusiasmato.
Comunque consiglio il gioco.

Non esagero quando dico “tutto”, considerato che la struttura complessa dei livelli e — soprattutto — l’incredibile capacità di poter scalare quasi ogni superficie, rende Blade Kitten un gioco non adatto a chi è abituato a muoversi in maniera lineare da punto A a punto B. Certo, la fine del livello sarà sempre la stessa, ma è realmente incredibile la quantità di passaggi segreti e strade alternative che è possibile imboccare per raggiungere tesori e oggetti fluttuanti. Alla stesso modo di come la curiosità gioca un ruolo fondamentale in questo titolo, anche la raccolta di crediti diventerà presto importante nel tentativo di sbloccare i quattro principali “collezionabili”: potenziamenti per la salute, per la resistenza, abiti e armi. Di fatto, la nostra Kit non avrà vita facile nella sua esplorazione acrobatica dei livelli e spesso e volentieri ci ritroveremo accerchiati da vari nemici pronti a farci la pelle. Dispiace un po’ notare la poca varietà tra questi, rimasti per lo più identici perfino nella nuova espansione di gioco, ma il grosso problema degli scontri non sono certo loro.

Durante le fasi di esplorazione Kit sarà estremamente agile e sinuosa, incantevole da guardare; al contrario, gli scontri sono stati pensati e realizzati con una certa superficialità. La spada che useremo, infatti, non sarà nella nostra mano, ma fluttuerà intorno a noi. Questo ci permette sia di utilizzarla con rapidi fendenti nella maniera più classica, sia per colpire da lontano nemici su sporgenze o pulsanti particolari. Non sarebbe affatto male l’idea se, però, questi elementi venissero rispettati e adattati al ritmo dell’azione degli scontri: il corpo a corpo, infatti, è quasi sempre sconsigliato, essendo i nostri nemici corazzati e pronti a respingerci. Alla stessa maniera, colpire da lontano non permette una rapida esecuzione come il “corpo a corpo” e quando vi ritroverete in mezzo a 4 o 5 nemici, due dei quali colpiscono con un fucile da cecchino, uno vi carica con colpi continui e l’ultimo vi stona con raggi elettrici… be’ diciamo che non vi farà proprio piacere.

After being taken down from Steam due to the previous publisher Atari's rights to the game expiring, Blade Kitten is back and self-published by Krome Studios themselves!

As well as being available for a lower price, the latest update improves the responsiveness of the controls, adds two new costumes, and prepares the game for the long-overdue Episode 2 DLC. Oh, and there's trading cards now!

http://steamcommunity.com/games/BladeKitten/announcements/detail/1855793488205468396

As for the game itself, I'd say it's very easy to recommend at the current sale price of $3. It's not very long, ends abruptly and it's not the best platformer out there, but it's charming and fun to play. And hey, there's a demo if you want to try it out anyway, so don't just take my word for it. Give it a look.

It is a good game, but not remarkable.

This game is a linear action-platformer in a 2D plane with 3D graphics. Your character can walk, run, slide, jump, double-jump, wall-jump, climb walls and even hang and move on ceilings. This variety of movements opens up to a lot of exploration in the levels, and such exploration is rewarded with lots of in-game money and hidden collectibles. The in-game money can be used to buy upgrades and costumes.

The levels are huge, with plenty of side-corridors or side-paths where you can find items. Since I wanted to explore every inch of each level, I often got tired before reaching the end. Slightly shorter levels (i.e. splitting each level into two) would be good.

The combat has a fast short-range attack (which you will end up using almost all the time) and a long-range attack, as well as a couple of gimmicks (left-trigger + short attack, or right-trigger on top of an enemy) that are a harder to pull off, and slow down the action as the camera freezes in a bullet-time fashion. This kind of effect gets old very quickly and breaks the flow of action.

The character has a stamina meter (for stuff such as running) and a health meter. The health regenerates when not taking damage.

Due to the amount of buttons used (4 buttons and the 2 triggers used as digital input), it might be a bit cumbersome to play on keyboard. I can't say about it, because I used a controller.

Although each level is huge, the game is a bit short, as this was meant to be the first episode in a multi-episode saga. And the storytelling in this game is not very good, I had the impression the levels did not follow any logical order, I haven't seen connection between most levels. (For comparison, "Sonic 3" storytelling is perfect!)

Overall, this game is okay. Between "Yes!" and "No!" I give this game a "Meh".

Blade Kitten is a charming game when you first start it up. The main character, Kit Ballard, is a spunky cat-girl who happens to be a bounty hunter with a new rival in town. The look of the game is cheery and bright, and the promise of a fun rivalry-based adventure sets the scene nicely. Although they say first impressions are generally the most important, this rule doesn't really apply to Blade Kitten. The game starts strong, but fizzles quickly due to some awkward mechanics, technical issues, and a paper-thin story.

Kit Ballard, as a main character, is interesting enough, and certainly fills the cat-girl "moe" archetype satisfactorily. However, the story, which starts off strong, falls into the "chase" trope fairly quickly, and becomes no more than snippy remarks and chase scenes during cutscenes. Although the lead and her rival certainly have their personalities, they just aren't enough to keep you engaged in the story.

However, since this is a relatively cheap game, a lax story might be forgivable. What isn't, however, is bad gameplay mechanics. The game's world is futuristic, and characters seem to hover around on a lessened gravity planet, which sounds cool in theory, but in practice proves to be quite frustrating. The game's levels feature platform-based gameplay, which means precision-based running and jumping is a must. However, the low-gravity properties of the game mean that there is a lot of skidding around, and you can't stop on a dime or take off at full speed. Though this isn't much of an issue in the beginning, you'll find the sliding mechanic increasingly annoying as the game progresses and you encounter "trap" levels that require precision button pressing and obstacle avoidance.

Another aspect of the game's mechanics that gets agitating quickly is the swordplay. Blade Kitten’s weapon of choice is a big, floating sword that can attack enemies near and far with quick or ranged attacks. However, the problem with the sword is that it only works half of the time. For instance, sometimes I would target an enemy from a distance, and when my ranged attack was unleashed, the enemy would still be standing there. Even the quick attack was flawed, and hammering on the swift attack button when encountering several enemies at once never yielded the results that I hoped. The floating sword mechanic could have really been cool, but with the lack of precise targeting, the sliding controls, and the lack of consistency in battle make this weapon more of a chore to deal with rather than an exciting gameplay component.

The game's mechanics really handicap this title and cause it to fall short of its potential. And the real tragedy of this is that the level design is actually quite good. Though the game takes a traditional approach to the side-scrolling aspect, there are multiple paths you can take through each level, and there are tons of bonus areas with treasure chests to explore. However, these areas are normally hidden behind puzzles and switches, which can be difficult to hit because of the wonky controls. On more than one occasion, I passed by treasure-filled bonus areas because I simply wanted to finish the level instead of trying to suffer sliding around trying to hit switches in a precise manner.

Blade Kitten's level design is also a missed opportunity in the visual area. Though there are plenty of hidden areas and things to explore, none of it looks particularly interesting. Levels generally find a comfortable color scheme, insert a few new elements, and stretch these few elements into an overarching world. This type of visual scheme is not only boring to look at, but can also be disorienting, as backtracking to similar areas can get you seriously lost if you are trying to find a certain area that looks like another part of the stage.

The only aspect of Blade Kitten that is consistently good is the animated cutscenes. Although most of these are brief with forgettable dialogue, the cutscenes are animated in a very high-quality cel-shaded style. All the animations are fluid, and the game really hits all the right notes for the anime style they wanted. The main characters feature some fun facial expressions and lightning-fast movement. However, even the cutscenes are hampered by poor voicework, which often comes across as wooden and completely unemotional.

As far as replay value is concerned, Blade Kitten definitely doesn't have much going for it. Although the game has several unlockable items, including new weapons, costumes, and battle-enhancing consumables, the game's currency is dispersed a little too liberally, and it is very possible to unlock all of this content before you've even reached the halfway point. This might be a good thing if you are just trying to run through the game, but if you are looking for a game you can play and then explore, Blade Kitten doesn't have much for you.

Blade Kitten certainly could have been a good game. It started out promising, and I was excited to experience an old-school platforming title with fun characters that played off the anime/manga tropes we've all seen over the years. However, what I got was a game with bad mechanics, repetitive level design, and little incentive to keep playing past the first few levels. Overall 6/10.
