Cat Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche
Top Critic Average
Cat Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche is a fun little game that fans of Wayforward titles or a good laugh will enjoy. While I wish it was longer, there's no doubt that a lot of effort went into making this a hilarious riot of a title.
This is a game filled with humor and which mixes characteristics of different genres which leads to a resulting fun experience that nevertheless, doesn't tick all the boxes to convince everyone. While the colourful visual environment, original ideas and overall humor make it a friendly game, its very short life and rather high price make it an experience that will not please everyone.

With a very short runtime, those familiar with the shoot-em-up genre might not get a lot out of this game. We think this reflects quite well in its price, however, and for a game that started life as an April Fool’s joke, it’s actually very accomplished. If you’re up for a few laughs, definitely give this one a go; it’s a great start to what could potentially be a highly enjoyable, lasting franchise.
Its writing can be fun for its short duration, the voice acting is pleasant to listen to, and the music by Shantae and Shovel Knight composer Jake Kaufman is at the very least catchy. However, if you're not already a fan of the genre or even if you prefer more meat on the bones of the ones you play, this game likely isn't going to get you what you want. Its slow pace and short runtime may turn some players off, but if you're looking for a way to kill an hour or so it may still be worth a look.
Cat Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche is a fun, unique, and irreverent way to spend an afternoon, and it would easily receive a recommendation if one were possible.
If you have a silly sense of humour then you'll love Cat Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche but don't expect it to be a top-notch shmup.
This game is too stinkin’ short! After playing one level I told myself I would try out the next but quit after a while. I beat the game in a single one and half hour sitting. The game is so beautifully made and is really quite cheap, but it’s a game that lasts no more than a couple hours. There is a good side to this though! Once I beat the last battle, the villain mentioned that Kebako will have six more trials to face. This, I assume, means there will be updates to the game that add in more levels.
Cat Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche began its life as an April Fool's prank, so its inadequacies as a game aren't shocking.
A cute and colourful side-scrolling shooter, taking its cue from animes and Japanese games, which makes for a fun and hilarious experience.
