Pretty fun, I managed to kill the end boss even though I was dead.

Great work!

That was fun. I liked throwing the cats, and the giant chain of cats at the end was great. Also, this is the first "take this cat" themed game I've encountered. It would be nice if the enemies moved more randomly and were less aggressive. Also, you might want to consider finding a way to upload this as a Java applet or Java Web Start program or something like that. Not a lot of people are going to know what to do with a Jar file inside a rar, and you will get less ratings and reviews because of this.

Good advice erik. I will look into this and when I'm done I'll add the Web link.

Very original. As soon as I had enough cats, I stopped throwing them and killed everything with my tail, which is bad because throwing cats is more fun. A longer level that let you appreciate having just a few cats before giving you a ton would be good.

I get a "CRC failed" error when trying to extract the files from the rar: looks like the file is corrupt, maybe try re-uploading?

I'd second the suggestion to improve the packaging situation.

Neat :)
I love the cat line behind me, which also works very nice as auto-attack. However the boss did me in when I tried to cat-tail him.
