COME TO THE RESCUE IN CATRAP, SAVE THE HANGMAN AND WAGE WAR

Help Catboy and Catgirl land on their feet on Virtual Console for Nintendo 3DS, in CATRAP, the game that first introduced the rewind time feature so popular in numerous modern video games.

When an ordinary boy and girl go out for a picnic one day they mistakenly stumble into a forbidden haunted house and are turned into something quite extraordinary – cats! In order to return to normal, Catboy and Catgirl must make their way through 100 daunting rooms of an underground labyrinth. But just moving the two around the screen is not enough to beat the challenge – in CATRAP you actually control time enabling you to rewind gameplay or fast- forward through the action.

More than just a mind-bending game of intrigue and action, CATRAP allows you to be the architect of the underground labyrinth and make your own levels of intricate mazes. So whether you choose to be a maze builder or a maze solver you’ll have hours of fun as you help restore Catboy and Catgirl to their human form.

Check out the latest offerings below which are also available for download this week via Nintendo eShop, Nintendo DSi Shop and the Wii Shop Channel
