Catamari Meowacy

by SethR - 48 Hour Compo Entry

The evil wizard Zorlax has shrunk poor kitty! Eat food to grow and see if you can find him.

This gets weird. Sorry in advance.

LOL. This might be the Citizen Kane of gaming that we've all been waiting for.

I have a netbook with a 1024x600 screen size, at first I was unable to see the bottom of the game window and there was no scrollbar. I was able to play by removing the paragraph on top and setting to fullscreen. Fun game. You were correct when you said it gets weird.

I was expecting the katamari intro music with "meows"

Bullet hell when you have to jump from platform to platform combined with one hit kills is too difficult for me.

Loved it, great job! The only reason I kept playing through that frustrating last level was to hear more from Zorlax. :P

Zorlax is the epitome of game villainy. He needs to be revived in another game, in another universe, in another compo.

Pretty cool! Good audio. I highly enjoy a bit of wackiness myself. Good thing this isn't on Kongregate; everyone would be asking you what you smoked to come up with the wacky ideas. They do that there for some reason.

However...the screen was effed no matter how much I changed the browser zoom, with the bottom part cut off. What the hell kind of screen are you using with that wacky size/positioning?

Enjoyed your game!

Not bad. I liked the growing feature. You watch me take a shower... really?

Such a catawacy (Russian for "muddle")...
I'm playing it and thinking: "How could nobody do such a game?" Zorlax

(Sorry, accidentally pressed "Save")
Zorlax totally gave you both innovation and mood.
But the ending was bad. Try making a post-compo with a better one.

Level 4 is a bit hard, but the ending is worth it!

Well, the ending made me laugh, so that's good. ;)

Lovely platformer! Has a lot of potential. Respawning was kinda weird, as you destroyed the projectiles, and could just attrition your way through.

omg zorlax, haha. Nice platformer. Lot of humor there. Nice entry. A bit too difficult perhaps but I liked your game. :thumbsup:

Hahaha this was hilarious. And it made my cat REALLY curious about the sounds coming from the computer. I love weird games like this, so great job. There are some issues that need some polish (hairball comes from the middle of the cat when it's big, one of the legs is not colored in one of the frames), and more levels and variety would be cool, but this could be a ridiculous and addicting little game.

Dude... I'm gonna have nightmares with that face for a long time.

Loved the game despite that =P

Sorry GLaDOS, you're not the most memorable/omnipresent villain in the history of videogames anymore.

That was hilarious. The whole mood is great even with this simple mechanics. Level design was okay, too.

LOL, instant like ôÔ
Great job for the voice acting and ... well ... story :-)
the collision detection is a little bit chunky, but it's totally ok.

I LOLed at "I'm watching you take a shower!" We need more Zorlax games now...

It's a good mechanic, and actually quite difficult in the later levels, but a bit of a short game. Has loads of character though!

He's right! I am a cool cat!
