If the world was ruled by Cocker Spaniards!
So many original, though unknown gems hidden deep within the folds of forgotten floppy disks there are! Well, Claw is one of these greats that just didn't get any traction, though it's just as good if not just plain better than Sonic or Earthworm Jim or so many others! Well here's the deal, the world has evolved a little differently than we are used to, so much so that Cocker Spaniards are the dominant race on Earth. As such, you'll play a cat pirate captain (yap, you'll be the underdog, sic!) fighting for feline liberation and emancipation rights! Gameplay style Claw is all about platforming, which is delivered in incredibly fluid and yet organic animation sets, within backdrops that are lovingly drawn and very detailed. Nope, though, this isn't a 2D game, it's all 3D, but it's well done. Come to think maybe that was its undoing, that it didn't use an actual hand drawn world, but well, I guess you have to take it for what it is. And, maybe, in recent times, cheap looking animations in 3D engines have kind of undone our love for that style, but rest assured, this game's 14 huge levels are pretty detailed, and never get old. In terms of difficulty, I guess kids can play it as easily as anyone else, as long as they're used to a game being medium in difficulty at times. But yes, a playable, cartoony adventure, great story, great set of characters. Maybe OddWorld has something similar to offer, though that one can be strange and scary at times, whereas Claw is just sweet and lovely. I mean, you play a cat pirate, what else is there, really?! Hehehe!
