Good family themed game. Simple layout with the signature
Oursler left ramp. Can't stop hearing, "meow.meow,meow,meow"
Pretty boring one-ball play. Too much riding on the 3rd ball ramp
for 20M. Can't stop hearing, "meow.meow,meow,meow" (yes, it's also
a negative. Not that it really was a plus, but it is memorable).
Great screened & mirrored backglass with cool "smack the cat with
the broom" animation. Playfield & BG art is some of Pythons best. Killer
Dan Forden sounds and speech add to the fun. Tiger Ramp shot is smooth and
just the right amount of difficulty to hit.
Fish Bone-us linear target is a blast to hit and can be multiplied to a 5
million point max to be collected via the upper left horseshoe shot.
"You one baaad cat!"
Maximum Fishbowl jackpot of 8 million is out of balance with the
20+ million Tiger ramp 3rd ball jackpot. Spinning Seafood table is a cool
feature but can award extra ball too frequently. Factory settings carry over
the lit Fishbowl ramp jackpot from ball to ball which takes the challenge
out of lighting and collecting it.
Last screened mirrored backglass from Williams :(
Bulldog kick out sometimes sends the ball right between the flipper and the
center post which actually keeps you on your toes not knowing where it's
Fishbowl ramp not worth shooting unless lit for EB or JP.
20 Million ramp shot on ball 3 and Trash Can plunger shot are fun
objectives. Smooth left ramp and Seafood wheel are also enjoyable
Trash can plunger can break easily and often is found in a state of
Awesome Screened and animated backglass. Cool sounding 50's soundtrack.
Decent shot selection.
Monoball!!! Seafood sequence gets tired fast, kills the pace of the game.
20M shot unbalanced from the rest of scoring including a maxed jackpot.
Funny enough, I actually like this game. Fun to go for the 5 million shot.
Got some fun shots. Scoring a little unbalanced...but ok. Not a serious
game...a 'just for fun' game.
Great Art and sound package.....gotta love "meow meow meow meow" and
seems like there could have been more stuff on the pf
