What Is It? Catrap manages to combine the two things the Game Boy does best: 2D platforming and puzzle solving. In this puzzler you play a couple of cat people on a mission to rid a house of ghosts and other baddies. You do this by moving boxes, climbing ladders and path solving a path to the various enemies in the room. The challenge is that neither the girl nor boy cat can jump at any time. This forces you to manipulate the environment in order to move on to the next stage. The 100 stages keep throwing new ideas at you, making this a simple and addictive puzzle game perfect in small doses.

Does It Still Hold Up? The graphics are nothing to look at and you might as well turn the sound completely off. Like many early Game Boy games, Catrap's presentation leaves a lot to be desired. The gameplay is sound, though the jerky animation can be a little off-putting at first. It's nothing to look at, but Catrap manages to still hold up.

Is It Worth The Money? While not the biggest name to come to the 3DS Virtual Console recently, Catrap is certainly one of the most surprising. With its unassuming graphics and simple gameplay, I expected very little from this puzzler. However, it didn't take long to completely win me over in a way that came as a shock. With 100 levels, there is plenty of content to get your money's worth. At a mere three dollars, Catrap is one of the better puzzlers on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console.
