Cat Astro Phi (geddit?) is a space exploration shooter in the style of an old Game Boy title. The protagonist keeps losing his cat Jonesy on alien planets, and must constantly grab keycards, pick up energy cells and rescue the feline.

I must admit, it took a little while to grow on me, as the controls don't feel so solid and not having a weapon is a bit of a pain. Give it a chance, however, and you'll find that it's actually very lovely indeed. You'll die frequently, but fortunately there are plenty of respawn points about.

You'll find your local Photon STORMBOY playing the game over at Newgrounds. (Cheers Scattle!)
