Thunder Paw is a charming platformer that's short but not so sweet. The gameplay doesn't hold up compared to the cute pixel art and fun music.
The saving grace for Thunder Paw is that generally sprites are cute, and music hits the mark for driving progress forward without being too repetitive. Whether or not that's enough to entice is up to the individual to decide. There's conceivably a compulsion to play on and best the unfair challenge, particularly with an early monkey boss level, which required keeping up with an increasing pattern speed in spite of a gimped weapon range. One hopes it might be a worthy first attempt, and it is if that's the case, but otherwise it is just a bit "rough." An oddity indeed.
Small equipment and means, simple systems, furros...in a basic R&G, a shooting game and platform. Nice, repetitive, little, and with the incentive of exploration and that precious secret in each level. And cats with eye patches to the end, too.

Overall, Thunder Paw is a safe coffee game. It just doesn’t really take any particular risks to make it stand out. Suitable for a quick gaming session and priced accordingly. Everything Thunder Paw does is just fine. The developers have a great art style, soundtrack and general idea here. But it just needs something extra to make it stand out from the enormous crowd.
Thunder Paw is an extremely brief, yet charming title. However, it suffers from boring level design and no replay value.
