The unusual premise is just one of several elements at play but overall, this is a fun and enjoyable game with fine-tuned controls that is set to provide some good times to its players, unless they are looking for a more hardcore and demanding experience, in which case Aqua Kitty UDX will feel rather limited.

Aqua Kitty UDX is a robust arcade shooter with an adorable cat aesthetic. The game offers a good level of challenge and chaos to keep you on your toes. It's let down slightly by some uninspired backgrounds but offers lots of fun on the Nintendo Switch.

As a cute callback to classic arcade shooters, Aqua Kitty UDX has it moments, especially with its intense and addictive Dreadnought mode. But unless you are someone who adores the genre and has a knack for high scores, then there really isn't much depth to keep your eyes glued for long.

Aqua Kitty UDX does one thing really well and it sticks with it from beginning to end. The upbeat music and jolly visuals go hand in hand with that sentiment as while they’re a pleasure to behold at first, you’ll slowly start to feel like you’ve seen it all. Perhaps it’s a good thing the game ends so soon as any longer and this Kitty might have just fallen to the bottom of the ocean. It’s by no means an unenjoyable game – quite the opposite in fact – but there are just other games out there that do more interesting things with the genre. Those games may not feature underwater cats but contrary to what the internet may have you believe… cats don’t always make everything better.

A remarkable 2D shooter featuring adorable kittens. Shooting and fun without brake. You have to save those milk at all costs!

All told, Aqua Kitty UDX is a simple, satisfying arcade shooter that looks as great as it plays. It takes one concept, offers a few different angles on it, and ensures it fulfills all that it sets out to do. We'd give this one a strong recommendation to anyone looking for a game that's easy to pick up and play, this is pure, arcade fun. This is also a one trick pony, though, which means that those of you that aren't big on score chasing games will want to steer clear. Even so, Aqua Kitty UDX is a game that exemplifies the concept of less is more; we'd encourage you to give this one a look.

Overall I only have positive things to say about Aqua Kitty UDX. It has a focus on a specific experience, delivers it effectively, and provides a reasonable progression of challenge across its diverse modes. While it won’t likely have much appeal outside of people who are arcade-style shooting fans it is also probably more friendly for acting as an introduction to the genre than other more hardcore choices on the Switch. Well worth checking out and it has a very reasonable price to boot!

In the end, I enjoyed Dreadnought Mode but found Normal/Arcade Mode to be uninspiring. If you need an underwater bullet-hell shooter, Aqua Kitty UDX should scratch that itch.

Overall the game is fun and doesn't take it's self too seriously, but provides a challenge that even older players would find difficult to beat regardless of their years of practice, leaving the to metaphorically kick the cat. This is one game that I won't paws to pick up again and it thoroughly deserves a cushion in front of the fire.
