Cats are awesome and beautiful! So how can we not be enthusiastic about a new entry to the contest featuring one of those furry feline friends?

In this game, our mission is to guide one of them as it goes down the screen, using an umbrella as a parachute (remarkably, this specimen doesn’t seem to rely much on his cat superpower of landing safely from great heights).

As you float towards the safe ground, be cautious of birds, because if they hit the umbrella the damage gauge will go up. If damage reaches 100%, the game will be over. If you want to descend faster, use the cursor down.

Try to get the best score you can!

Glad to see a new entry in the contest, with less than a month until the deadline.

Unfortunately the game doesn't work in WebMSX, so I can't add it at the moment...

I tried it on BlueMSX with whatever config I had (worked) and then some configurations OpenMSX with Catapult. C-Bios MSX1 seemed to work in OpenMSX 0.14.0, but the couple of "actual" machines I tried in OpenMSX failed to run it.

A correction actually, it seems it worked because I added Philipg VY-0010 to the VG-8000. Without it it crashes.

According to the included text file it's written in assembly.
I am trying to contact Z80 Epoch and even subscribed to StackOverflow but I can't find a way to contact him about the game :'(

The graphics is very nice! The cute music also makes the game fun.
