The game was generally well received, being notable for its gorgeous looking graphics, great atmosphere and fun gameplay. Some even compared it to other great titles like ''MarioBros'' or ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot''. It had quite a few hand-drawn [[{{Cutscene}} cutscenes]] (about 18 minutes in total), giving it a movie-esque feeling. It's also worth noticing that it's [[NintendoHard HARD AS HELL]].

Added DiffLines:

* GoodOldFisticuffs: If you get closer than sword range, Claw will resort to his bare limbs (attacks vary among a straight punch, an uppercut, and a high kick). They do more damage than the sword and are {{unblockable|attack}}. Often they're the best way to hurt bosses.

* CaptainObvious: The mercat creatures like to point out that they are dying/dead with "I seem to be deceased" or "Well, I'm no longer among the living, am I?"

* SwordAndGun:
** Claw can kill his enemies with a sword or a gun. The load for the gun is limited, but more can be collected while playing.
** Two bosses use this combo as well: Red Tail and Marrow, ([[InsistentTerminology though they are daggers actually]]).
* TooAwesomeToUse: Magic Claw one-shots everything in the game but bosses, including Tiger Guards, but the resources found are so scarce that you'll use it very rarely (unless you're conserving it for this last level...)
* WakeupCallBoss: If you think that after defeating Le Rauxe you'll fight someone with only slightly higher difficulty, [[WhipItGood think]] [[FragileSpeedster again]]. Some people actually put Catherine (Level 4) on par in difficulty with FinalBoss OMAR. And she's only the second boss.

* ChargedAttack: Anything throwable ([[ThrowDownTheBomblet dynamite]], [[ExplodingBarrels gunpowder]] [[ThrowABarrelAtIt barrels]], and [[GrievousHarmWithABody enemies]]) goes farther the longer you hold the command key.

Added DiffLines:

* GrievousHarmWithABody: Claw can pick up enemies if he gets close enough to them, and throw them a fair distance. Hitting another foe with the thrown mook is a OneHitKill.

''Claw'' (also known as ''Captain Claw'') is a 1997 PC {{platformer}} and [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove overlooked]] CultClassic. It tells the story of a certain cat pirate captain, named (can you guess it?) Nathaniel J. Claw and his quest to [[GottaCatchThemAll find the]] [[DismantledMacGuffin parts of the Amulet of Nine Lives]]. While the [[ExcusePlot plot was mostly an excuse]], the story gets interesting due to how interesting its characters are. Particularly Claw, whose [[DeadpanSnarker snarky comments makes pretty obvious]] [[{{Badass}} who you are dealing with]].

* {{Badass}}: Most of the cast.
** Claw exemplifies his badassery by escaping his imprisonment and single-handedly beating countless enemies.
** Hell, Tiger Guards can block a Dynamite explosion with ''a dagger''. If that's not badass, TV Tropes don't know what is.

* ParryingBullets: How Hook Monkey manages to block a pistol shot with a small dagger is a mystery, ditto with Tiger Guards. Applies to all bosses as well. There's also Gabriel who will block ''everything'' with ''his arm'' ([[GoodBadBugs sans grabs]]), calmly reminding you that this is not how you beat him.

** If Catherine failed to deliver the message, Wolvington won't. He'll straight up counter attacks when hit and block even more often then the last boss being able to rack up large amounts of damage very quick against reckless players.
