MSXdev'09 - #8 Stray Cat

This is the evening when game developers may be losing it. Every year again this stimulating deadline stress and the explosion of joy when the deadline has been made in the last minutes. Imanok is certainly no stranger among MSX game developers, and his latest output is Stray Cat. It's a platformer of 32KB which requires only 8KB of memory. Judging its looks it is certainly a game for die hard platformophiles!

After 10 seconds of playing I figured someone was paying attention on the forum a few months back. Good msx1 implementation!

This was really nice! Canabalt has kept me and my class mates entertained during boring presentations for the last couple of weeks.

YAY! Someone made Canapult Big smile A little less fast-paced than Canapult perhaps, but those higher roofs are a killer!
Thanks a lot Smile it's my favourite so far.

I can't get passed 402m though Sad

ahhhh, strike that.
Thanks BiFi for telling me I can use left+right to go faster and slower; I was too much assuming it was exactly like Canapult ;p

Really nice gfx.
I suck greatly at this game, need to practice. Smile

The main character reminds me of The Brain (from Pinky):

True. Smile The main character has a high cutesy-value, I noticed also from the reaction of the missus.

This is a game you can really can get used to, so I'll beat it... eventually.
