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.
