Gameplay - You Can Play Cat Mario now
[Cat Mario] features a protagonist with a facial likeness to a cat except he or she walks upright like a human. The game is played as a side-scroller with similar music and level environment to Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. There are a total of four levels and each contains various traps such as falling brick walls, bouncing monsters, death spikes, power blocks with poison mushrooms or hidden blocks that when hit will trap the player's progression in the level. It has been dubbed a "rage" game due to the very easy accumulation in number of deaths the player can obtain from the constant and unfair traps that kill the protagonist, and the frustration behind how difficult it is to pass an area without repeatedly dying. Though blocks can be hit, the coins received from them have no value or use in the game. Blue checkpoint flags, if touched, will save the level restart point as that part if Cat Mario happens to die.
PewDiePie stated in the first video of his Let's Play of Cat Mario that he doesn't really play rage games because they makes him mad easily, and after that, he usually would quit instead of continuing. PewDiePie began the game with standard two lives with his first death occurring due to hitting a power block and touching the monster that popped out of it. Each time Cat Mario dies, one live is taken away, and with each death, the lives eventually go into the negatives Cat Mario.
In Part 2 of PewDiePie's Let's Play, Cat Mario is killed by a trap and PewDiePie falls to the floor in disbelief. He "slows down" the video and zooms in on the facecam, and afterward brings up the a message on the video screen, "PEWDS.EXE HAS STOPPED WORKING." How funny.
