Jaz Rignall

4/5 JAZ RIGNALL - USGAMER.NET - "Taking its inspiration from 80's and 90's shooters, Aqua Kitty DX is simple, frenetic and fun. What it sets out to do, it does very well, and the end result is charming, challenging, and purrfectly addictive."


4/5 WILL FREEMAN - theguardian - "A remake that may be mechanically familiar then but one whose energetic gameplay, vibrant visuals and sonic elegance are more than welcome."


8/10 MITCH VOGEL - NINTENDO LIFE - "We'd give this one a strong recommendation to anyone looking for a game that's easy to pick up and play, this is pure, arcade fun."


8/10 ELLIOTT OSANGE - BONUSSTAGE.CO.UK - "Really, if there's something that sells a game in my eyes, it's being fun, and Aqua Kitty UDX nails that right on the nose."


8/10 JAN SIERY - FINGERGUNS.NET - "This is one game that I won't paws to pick up again and it thoroughly deserves a cushion in front of the fire."


5/5 CURTIS H - PSNSTORES.COM - "Once again I have no complaints. Aqua Kitty DX is pretty much exactly what I would want from something like this. Arcade Mode alone is enough to get me back into playing the game regularly."
