Kitten's Missions

by irl - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A side-scroller written in Python using PyGame.

You play the role of a kitten. This kitten completes solo missions in dangerous environments collecting beer, kebabs and cups of water.

At the end of each level, the kitten is reunited with its friends.

If the kitten comes into contact with a cactus or satellite, it will blow up.

Installing Python is no big deal, but having no executables for any platform will greatly reduce the number of players, you know

I would play it if I could.. See if you can upload a version where you dont gotta install anything

I definitely agree with the above comments.

There are tons of games to go through. Without an executable, this will probably be one of the games I go back to once I've reviewed all the others.

Went to the trouble of installing PyGame for OS X Lion, but then it couldn't find bg3.png and crashed :(

It's also missing water.png. The third stage isn't playable without those two assets.

I'm not sure how well this works, but it looks like an option?

Yup. Source only kills it.

Couldn't play; First it says that the bg3.png files is missing, then the water.png. I also found annoying that I can't skip the introduction screen, especially as I had to run it again and again to add the missing assets :-)

As everyone else said, I can't play it with just the source. I'd recommend creating a stand-alone, and adding the missing files.

Same as everyone else, shame not to give them kittens an exe!

Source only doesn't allow me to try your game. Sorry.

Yeah, so you're not helping a lot to rate your game. I had to install python, then pygame, then I figured the versions were too recent to run this, so I had to install older ones (if anybody wonders, python 2.5.4 + python 1.9.1). Then I had to create dummies for missing images, as other commenters say here.... So I could finally play the game. Meh.

Those two levels are actually quite fun, but of course no way to finish the game due to the missing assets. It's a real shame you didn't package this correctly.
