With its pleasant graphics already known to the fans of this comic book and its simple game-play, it will keep you stuck to play for hours! The game soundtrack will soon carry you in an enchanted, yet intriguing atmosphere, where you can challenge your friends thanks to the online ranking chart, or you can beat your record so to unlock various extra components in the game. Catch the kitten while jumping over the various buildings (Warning: Some are unsafe!) trying not to get killed by the enemies you meet on your way! Try to catch it as quickly as possible, collect many coins and boxes for further bonus, and surpass yourself! But be careful! If you hesitate too much, the kitten will run away and throw you off the scent not to be back again, so be quick and catch it!
There's an infinite number of levels; it's all up to you and your skills! Once you got the kitten, have a rest at Henry's pub, where you can improve and upgrade your skills including: running, jumping, human time, ammo and so on! During the game you will find the Sprint bonus. Just take it, and you’ll be three times faster when running and shooting!

You will also find Extra items in the game, such as 38 exclusive wallpapers to download but beware, not all of them are available, so you'll need to score higher and higher to unlock them one by one!

I'm all about the skeleton! This is sort of a neat run and gun platformer game. For free it's pretty good! You basically chase a kitty across rooftops and ATTEMPT to shoot badguys.
The Danny Elfman style music is perfect!
The default autorun control really bites, though. The camera stays too tight for you to see the bad guys in time to shoot and once they get past you they shoot you in the back and you can't turn back to get rid of them. TURN AUTO OFF if you want to live and save the kitty!
UPDATE: After playing this for a few hours I feel more qualified to add another comment. You aren't exactly "Quick Draw" . The time it takes to fire once you touch the button is too long! Once you see the bad guy you don't even have time to get the gun up to shoot. On top of that even easy enemies often require multiple shots so essentially the fun of fast chasing is ruined. Stop and kill enemies or let the kitty get away? The kitty does sometimes stop, but even if you buy upgraded items you can't seem to keep them if you have to restart the level.
If the enemies become more balanced or the skeleton gets quicker on the draw it will be a very good game.
Disappointing Graphics, Awkward Controls
The graphics were fairly low resolution outside of the cut scenes. More disappointing, however were the awkward controls. It never felt like you were jumping smoothly as soon as you hit the jump button. There was a fraction of a second delay in the controls, even on my iPhone 4. This made it not enjoyable to play. I deleted this app after playing it the first time.
I think after the controls are touched up a bit (they lag a bit) this game would be fun. It's really great for a FREE game though!
