Summary

Claws of Furry is a game that looks like Smash Bros but plays very different, Ok not strictly true as you can unlock a game mode called arena which plays like Smash Bros but I’m talking the meat of the game. A 2D fighter that is very basic, Levels are short with little fireworks as you go through, Occasionally you will encounter a new enemy and must learn how to deal with them but outside of that and boss battles, Levels all feel the same. Boss fights are challenging and for many parts are over the top challenging. I just c=kept finding myself not caring about the game or what happens, It just doesn’t have enough in it to give it any characteristics or desire to play.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
