The game begins with shot of a peaceful neighborhood, which then cuts to a house. In the house, a young girl is checking a cupboard, when suddenly a mouse springs out, carrying candies. Meanwhile, an older boy checks the fridge, only for him to find a mouse carrying a cake. Then, their mother, a woman, is watching tv, when suddenly mice carry the television away! It then cut to the titular cat, Luke, seeing the mice carrying the tv, and then he spots more mice carrying various foodstuffs and other things, including cheeseburgers! He then follows the mice to find the mice carrying all the food and others in a trolley, and driving off! Angry, Luke chases after them, while his owners watch him from a distance.

Gameplay

Luke the Cat is a sidescrolling game. The player, Luke, can simply jump at enemies to defeat them, as well as clawing them, but he can also do a ground pound. Level goals are represented by mice carrying a trolley of foods, which leaves as soon as Luke arrives and ending the level. Luke has a total of 6 health points. He will lose one point if he touches an enemy or hazard, and he will lose if he lost them all. When Luke goes underwater, a meter will appear showing the amount of air Luke has. He will lose if it runs out, but it can be refilled by collecting air bubbles or surfacing. When playing multiplayer, Toby, the owner of Luke, can be controlled by the second player.
