Graphics are awesome but the controls are very laggy in the Web version. Too hard/frustrating

@junior Thanks. :) I'll perhaps do a Jam version, or update the game after the compo.

@csanyk Thanks. Does downloading the game with (Right Click/Save As) help? As for the difficulty I'll try to fix it in a later release.

The horizontal acceleration is way too high - really hard to land on small platforms and make tight jumps. It was cool enough to make me want to play on, but I to stop in frustration :(

Actually, I just completed it :P Also forgot to say that I like the graphical style :)

I loved the secret ending hahahaha! The controls are really hard to master, though. The main problem is that the character keeps moving in air, even if you release the arrow key.

Woooo!! I made it to Catland!! :D
I liked the game. The only problem I had with it, like many others, was the controls. I wish the character would decelerate when releasing arrow keys in the air. But, those spike puzzles were a bit more interesting with this. Fun game though. I liked the graphics.

Cool, I thought the puzzles were pretty creative. The platforming is a little wonky, but besides that I thought it was quite good. Nice authentic looking NES graphics as well!

I beat it but I did not see a cat land. But nice design on this!

The graphic looks fun. Reminds me on the old game ZOOL. But the collision handling on edges is not the best. You should also remove the mouse cursor.

Puzzle using the upgrades are nice, but controls are a bit dubious.

This is very similar to my game but in 2D :D. Good job at getting the NES style on. Hard game but so was those old NES games :). NES style soundtrack would have been nice.

well, it was as hard as NES game :P I liked the graphics, but the gameplay didn't really fit! Greetings from another portuguese!
