(Captain) Claw is a 2D platformer for the PC. It came out back in '97 and is known for it's high difficulty.
The game features 14 levels and 7 bosses (every 2nd level) and many different enemies. Every level is unique and has it's own beautiful style. If you manage to beat the game, there are many custom maps for you to play.
The methods of combat inculde sword, pistol, dynamite and a meme spell.
Where to get it
Legitfags: ebay, charity shops etc
Piratefags: Claw is an abandonware, which means you'll have to download it from here: http://kapitanpazur.piasta.pl/en/downloads.html
In the link above you'll find three installations:
Read and decide for yourself. I recommend the DVD version because the cinematics are cool.
>Don't be a jew, the score worths nothing if you are dead
>Nothing but sword works against bosses
>Save your HP for the boss fight
>Use meme claw to clear lines of enemies
>Maximize your powerups. You deal double damage, move faster and jump higher with the catnip powerup
>Custom maps can be downloaded from the site above
>Don't use cheats
I didn't have any issues and I use the DVD version.
If you have a problem running the game, make sure you start the game in compatibility mode.
If you have a problem with the framerate, use windowed mode.
The Crazyhook version should work fine.

The Pirate Loli Catgirls Toaster Club is a /vg/ book club for discovering and discussing interesting vidya. Some of it is good and some of it is bad, but as long as it's got something worth discussing it's welcome to be submitted. If you want to suggest a game, fill out the template and post it. By the end of the month OP will pick the game that seems like the best choice so feel free to discuss which game you think would work out best.
It makes things easier if you fill out this template when making a suggestion:
That way your post can be copied and pasted into the next OP if we play the game you suggest concise and informative. Submissions should include a webm or embedded gameplay video to give people an idea of what the game is like. (without spoiling too much if applicable)
Also note to avoid confusion that this pasta was filled out by an anon in a previous thread when nominating this game, which means any potentially wrong opinions, incorrect information, and shit taste expressed belong to that anon. If a better version of a game is available or bad advice was given in the OP, speak up in the thread. OP may have copied the pasta verbatim without finding more information about the game.
