It’s time for another throwback and for some reason, I decided to talk about a game I haven’t thought about in ages.
I have Catwoman for the Game Boy Color. Why? I don’t know. This game released in 1999 and was developed by KEMCO. It’s a game that exists and I don’t really know why.
Catwoman is a side-scrolling platform-type game. I’m trying to remember but it’s hard and there’s very little information on this game – surprise, surprise.
Part of the reason I don’t remember this game that well is, despite my being young when I played it, is the fact that I never made it out of the first level. According to the game’s Wikipedia page, which is pretty bare-bones, this game has nine stages. That’s it. I couldn’t get past the first. Maybe this is because I was young and couldn’t play games well or maybe it’s because the game is just as ridiculous as I remember it being.
All I remember from the game is that you play as Catwoman, of course, and you’re in this museum-type place. I never knew where I was. I just walked back and forth, jumping, clawing at bad guys and whipping them all trying to find the way out and onto the next level – or whatever it was I was supposed to do.
According to Wiki, this game has a story. Catwoman was hired to steal a weapon of some sort by an evil organization and then she decides to keep it for herself. Now, these evil guys are out to get her.
So… that was something I didn’t know when I played the game. The first level must be in a museum or something because she’s going to steal the weapon… or maybe she has it and is trying to escape. I have no idea since I never made it that far.
I think about this game once in a while. I still have it and my Game Boy Color still works. Maybe I’ll pick it up again sometime soon and see if I can actually get back the first level. That would be interesting.
