I wouldn’t not be lying if I didn’t say that I wouldn’t hate seeing a sequel

Awesome presentation and cool idea, not a lot of games use avoidance as a mechanic and this one does it very well.

I like it, very solid little game. I was a bit confused about what to do with the black cats, and things seemed to get really crazy when I respawned (so many explosions I couldn't tell where my character was.)

Enjoyed it, the controls really worked for the kind of avoidance game it was, more variations by having different levels would've helped a bit more though.

A nice little game.
After I learned not to fear the little black enemies, though, it became way too easy.

Thanks for the comments and input everyone! With your encouragement I've decided to take this further, and you can check out a little sneak peek in my journal.
Thanks again!

Simple, endless, and loads of fun (and a catchy tune too!)

I've played it quite a few times now, and I'm still not sure what I'm supposed to do with the black cats, but overall it's very fun. You should consider porting it to iOS/Android I'd buy it for a buck.

i love this game very much! but yes as Fifth says, not to fear little black cat, the game became way too easy. but, i enjoy it nonetheless and managed to 23K something for my highscore!

play-testing makes fools of us all. Or is it just me? The black cats only attack you when you don't have a heart... like in real life. But I'm certainly going to make this more clear and challenging overall. Thanks for the constructive feedback!

Really simple but great mechanic, I love the jumping animation

almost perfect!

13,825. I feel like that's marginal, given all the leading zeroes... :)

Wow, I really love what's happening here. Sort of giving off a SuperCrateBox feel but nailing the constrained single-screen design.

I think it needs some more progression, like maybe a tower to climb level by level?

Great showing, thanks for making this.

Simple, yet great gameplay! That is what best games are made of.
Well done!

May 8, 2011 @ 10:01pm

One of my favorite entries this LD. Nice, simple and polished.

Usually not a big fan of avoidance games, but THIS is just the right amount of forgiving. Great AI, the art, audio and gameplay fit together extremely well. Can't wait to see this up on a portal.

Very cute. I love the graphics, especially the way he somersaults. So charming. Really pretty fun, though I didn't feel like it progressed that much after the different enemies had been introduced.
