Review: I and Me (Switch)

by James Charlton

O Brother, Where Art Meow?

The I and Me in the title refers to the two kitties you control simultaneously. If you've ever played Super Mario 3D World and used the Double Cherry power up, you'll know exactly how this game plays. One kitty jumps and the other one does the same jump at the same velocity and height. The game then uses this mechanic in increasingly clever ways as you try and get your furry bros to the safety of their picture frames.

Whereas it might start off as more of a simple platformer, the levels quickly evolve into brainteasers. Spikes on the lower section will prevent you from jumping, water traps and bottomless pits will appear, spiky hedgehogs will come to mess you up, and remember if one of the cats dies - it's game over for both of you. I guess these kitties share the same code as the Navy Seals - never leave a fallen (fluffy) brother behind.

The music is very relaxing, if repetitious (it never stops looping), as are the simple art student style graphics. Nothing is offensive, which in the end kind of makes the game feel a little bland. 
This is basically the videogame equivalent of a wet Sunday afternoon stuck inside doing crossword puzzles with your Grandma. There's nothing wrong with it, but the kids next door are probably playing something more exciting.

Final Score: 5.0
