Game Profile

Banished to a mysterious underground labyrinth of complex mazes, two explorers are faced with one chance to reverse the curse: solve all 100 puzzles set out in mazes before them.

But watch it! Every maze has monsters patrolling the depths of the labyrinth. Help Catgirl and Catboy push around blocks to bridge a path to yet another maze, or topple a block a few stories over the pursuing monsters. If you make a mistake, simply use the rewind function and travel back in time to correct it. With 100 mazes in this labyrinth, it will be quite a challenge to get out of the curse's reach.

Catrap is more than just a game of mindbending intrigue and action. Be the architect of the underground labyrinth and make your own games of intricate mazes.

Whether you choose to be a maze builder or a maze solver, we know you can help Catboy and Catgirl land on their feet.

That cover art is pretty low quality compared to the original - especially with the boy's deformed face:
