Catrap/Pitman – Christopher P.


This is an amazing pick. I love this game! I discovered Pitman the, Japanese version of Catrap, on a multicart about a year and a half ago. It is so good that I decided to purchase the official one online. I did not know that there was a US release at the time but that’s okay. The Japanese version is 100% in English. There is one thing to be mindful of. You can play the levels in any order you would like but if you don’t play them in order the passwords become crazy long. Overall a great game. Catrap gets a double thumbs up from me.

Other than just being a great Game, Catrap also has a robustly level creator. If anyone would like to try a level I designed the password is pictured above. To enter the password correctly you have to select EDIT on the main menu. Next, select INPUT PASSWORD and then press the A button again.
