An extract from the WiiWare World review of Bruiser & Scratch:
"It seems only natural that a game being developed by former members of such an accomplished developer as Naughty Dog would begin to garner some serious hype when it's announced. While it's always nice for a developer to get some type of recognition ahead of time, it can also prove to be a double-edged sword when it comes time to judge the finished product. Of course it doesn't help that the game is yet another puzzle title on a service that is already becoming overrun with them. So was developer Steel Penny Games able to transfer enough of that past Naughty Dog magic over to their first WiiWare release Bruiser & Scratch to somehow keep it from getting lost in the crowd?
Bruiser & Scratch doesn't try to reinvent the wheel with its simple game play premise. The game basically takes a "less is more" approach to the puzzle genre and crafts a simple yet decently playable title that requires more thinking power than fast gaming reflexes. You basically take control of one of the two characters found in the game, Bruiser the bulldog or Scratch the cat. The level basically chooses the character for you and then alternates between the two as you progress through the game. Both have the same game play moves only differing in the way each of them looks in appearance."
