Clockwork Cat

by patrickgh3 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A 2D platformer about the adventures of a cat, a wrench, and a clock. Use your wrench to wind the clock up to 10 seconds backwards at a time to prevent it from striking midnight. Be careful, as winding the clock also winds other parts of the level too. Navigate the brass sky-fortress to get to the end! There's also a small easter egg to find. ;) Good luck!

I used FlashDevelop, FlashPunk, Ogmo Editor, Paint.NET, LMMS, sfxr. Music instrument samples from

Great game! The jumping seems a bit weak and makes parts tough, but it was fun to play and very creative.

The theme was greatly used and I really liked the gfx. :)

Awesome use of the theme!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 3:54am

Brilliant. The idea to manually rewind the time and how it's bound to the mechanisms is so much better that the obvious simple checkpoint to reach.

Graphics and music is lovely too.

With its great ambient music and cute story, this game is really touching.
In addition to the cute main character, the game has great puzzles and simple yet effective graphics.

Very cool, I loved the way the 10 second limit was controlling the platform movement. Great use of the theme.

Impmaster says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:57am

I found that the controls were a bit laggy on my computer, so that was a bit annoying. Apart from the controls, my other problems are all nitpicks, like the fact that the clock looks a little silly when you look straight at it :P. Apart from small things, this is a pretty good game!

The only thing I miss in this game is ability to look down/up so I wouldn't fall from the map :D

TheHermit says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:02am

I loved how the 10 second count-down became more than just a countdown but actually controlled elements of the arrangement of the level.

Jools64 says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 2:32pm

Very cool idea. I really liked the clever level design that had both puzzle and skill based execution elements. Felt like you managed to make good use of the concept and didn't drag it out to the point that it became boring.

The graphics are very cute and I appreciate the addition of music and sound effects.

All round, fantastic job!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:06pm

Nice job... great sprites, great music, fun mechanics. Only suggestion is that I could have like a bit of jump leniency when you are leaving a platform and try to jump.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 10:02pm

Wonderful feel!

Mclogenog says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:06am

Very cute! I was expecting it to be just a platformer where winding the clock was just a way of checkpointing, but the way moving platforms worked was very cool.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 12:27am

Brilliant! Incredibly cute, wonderful music, and great puzzle design. Well done!

Awesome game! I really liked the use of the wrench items as save points and as time manipulation. Great use of the theme. Fun game!

Fireblend says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:00am

This has got to be among the top 5 interpretations of the theme I've seen. Seriously, great job. Playing this right before going to sleep was the right thing to do :)

SaintHeiser says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:10am

Awesome excellent work =)
Very impressive and atmosphere!
General concept, graphcs, music, leveldesing, game mechanics... ENDING is great. All great!
Only one issue is not reactive controls. Sometimes jump don't work =(

Fantastic game! The controls were tight, the concept was cute and the puzzles were fun and easy to understand. The pacing was also really good and the use of the theme was wonderful. Good job!

koe415 says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 5:25am

That was awesome. Great gameplay. Very unique take on the theme. Pixelated yet very cute graphics. I especially like the always present clock tower in the background. The puzzles were well thought out. The music definitely adds to the experience. That song is so good for being so minimal. And that ending was perfect. It feels almost like a dream. I think your game is my favorite LD game! Cheers!

KevinZuhn says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 5:38am

Wow, that was both very tense and completely adorable at the same time!

MrRoboman says ...

I really love this game, everything about it just wonderful.

Jason says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 1:55pm

So good! My favorite so far. I feel like you nailed everything. The graphics and audio and pacing work so well together. It feels almost a little laid back, but at the same time the clock is ticking. Everything worked really well for me too, I think you've got a winner here!

My only suggestion is the control scheme. This might just be a personal preference, but I would have liked another key for jump. Something like a or space. So minor tho!

TobiasW says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:58pm

Now that's what I call perfect use of the theme: You took a simple premise and meshed multiple little mechanics around it. The checkpoints must be reached to turn back the clock, not just because they are checkpoints - and then you gradually introduced little puzzles around that too. When I saw the first blocks moving in and backwards in time, I was pleasently surprised :)

I love the pixel art, and the music sounds soothing and fits the game quite well. The sound effects work nicely.

I quite enjoyed this game - good job!

PS: I love you :3

TobiasW says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:58pm

PPS: The cat is ADORABLE :D

Zerot says ...

Aug 28, 2013 @ 7:57pm

So very cute. Best cat related game in this compo, maybe in any jam ever...! :)
The cat handling that wrench looks so cute!!!
Maybe I should make a game with cats for the next compo, too. Then again, maybe better not !! :)

johnfn says ...
Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:05pm

Oh my goodness. It's so cute. The concept behind it is brilliant, it nails the theme, it is somehow soothing (even though your imminent death is coming in 10 seconds or less), and the artistic style is wonderful. This is basically all you can ask for from LD48 - great job. Well done across the board.

john_conder9 says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 9:48pm

!! NOM NOM What a cute kitten! I didn't get the fish the first time round but I SAW IT, so I went back to get it.

Absolutely great game! I would echo the sentiment that the jumping was a bit tight and unforgiving, but everything from the art style to the music to the emotion of the game was absolutely stunning. Great work!

mtrc says ...

I love the art and aesthetics! Clever use of the game mechanic all throughout, and good take on the theme!

Hayawi says ...
Aug 30, 2013 @ 5:50am

Brilliant idea, you incorporated the theme nicely. The ending glitched tho when you pressed "x" while the cat was sleeping (a new cat appeared, and went to sleep right next to your other cat...I have an army of wrench-wielding sleeping kitties >:D) You should also make a "Replay" button. Great game overall!

JokerDen says ...

I hope it will take 1st place. Great game!

wine says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 5:44am

Yes, jump sometimes does not work very well. But the concept, style, and audio. Definitely like this work!

Solifuge says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 6:20am

Very clever incorporation of the theme into the setting and puzzle/platformer mechanics. The art and sounds work together to create a very beautiful, calming puzzle game. Easily one of my favorites of the jam, and I'm going on 100 played so far. Very, very, very well done.

Xaychru04 says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 7:47am

Wow, amazing game! I love the concept, the graphics, the music, the mood, the cat, the clock, the wrench, the stars, the title! Well, I love this game, I want to play more. ^^

Awesome, its nice to be able to reset the time you have and try again. Still quite hard at some points.

Aug 31, 2013 @ 10:59pm

This is one of the best games I've played for this jam so far. Really charming. Love the music, and graphics. A clever implementation of the mechanics. Just really great.

Sink says ...
Aug 31, 2013 @ 11:27pm

This game is so adorable! I love how the clock is the timer it is very nice and calming compared to numbers counting down. The art was simplistic and cute and the music complement it so well! Great job

Cutest game ever! Love it! (It feels weird giving you 5 stars in all categories, but I must say, you deserved it...)

Gremlin says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 2:24am

Very nice. It's *hard* to design a core gameplay loop that fits in exactly ten seconds, and you've done a very good job of pulling it off.

TeamFlare says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 2:53am

In every aspect,this is so super cool :) Nicest timer I've seen so far, perfectly blends in with the theme.
Oh yeah, and it's cute! 5/5

Teejay5 says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 4:58am

If cuteness was a category, this would be #1 no contest.
One of the best theme uses I've seen so far!

Sep 1, 2013 @ 6:08am

It's really cute, and ther are a great atmosphere in this game good job. PS : you have a bug at the end, you can spawn several cats.

Colapsydo says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 7:30am

Great use of the theme as a game mechanic. I also like how you design the level with the moving platform.
And of course, it's cute. I ate the fish 'nomnomnom'.

Orni says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 12:38pm

very nice game
loved the concept
the fact that you were able to get away with no UI at all and put the clock in the background was a clever choice

well done

Sep 1, 2013 @ 12:54pm

Sep 1, 2013 @ 6:38pm

Awesome! Really liked the concept. Only critics is that the jumping seemed a bit off. Like sometimes the cat would just not jump. But otherwise perfect!

sergilazaro says ...
Sep 2, 2013 @ 1:02am

Amazing. Cute graphics, nice mechanics, fun to play. Minor gripes: sometimes it didn't jump when pressing the button, and there's some z-sorting issues. Beside that, solid entry, top 5 so far for me :)

Lokarunith says ...
Sep 2, 2013 @ 10:21pm

Really cute, its not a very challengng plataformer but the aesthetic is great enough to make the overall experience really good.

crueltear says ...
Sep 3, 2013 @ 11:42am

Simple, not too easy, not too hard, with nice graphics... but too short (made in 48 hours, so it's hard to expect more).

Sep 3, 2013 @ 2:48pm

very fun.
cool graphics and take on theme.

Needs more puzzle aspect like the key that needs to drop.

Lokarunith says ...
Sep 5, 2013 @ 12:19am

I love the mood, although it's a very simple platformer the game is very enjoyable.

Pinktreeleaf says ...
Sep 5, 2013 @ 12:29am

what a winning game play mechanic. the malleable time thing really got me. and the aesthetics around it. clock instead of numbers and physically turning it back instead of having a number reset. good art and cool music. Bravo.

porglezomp says ...
Sep 6, 2013 @ 9:07pm

I love how the moving platform gears are attached to the clock gears, and I really like how you seemed to subtly stick the whole game into a story that you don't really have to tell. This game is great!

This game made me feel good. :1

I loved how not only the clock and the platforms are connected, but you also extended that idea to the key dropping part. The audio was sufficiently subtle, not the usual loud bfxr noises. I'd definitely like to see a more complete game based on this.

Really adorable! Really great job mixing up the puzzles and mechanics enough to not get repetitive. Would love to see this mechanic/game fleshed out into a fuller experience.

I once thought I was stuck at the middle, but I wasn't. The little puzzle aspect was great too.

Cute game, pretty fun with a nice style. I liked the tying of the moving platforms to the rewinding of time, and I felt a couple neat puzzles came out of that.

Lovely in every aspect. Perfect visuals, perfect audio, perfect mood, very clever puzzles. Kind of reminded me of Michael Ende's "The Night of Wishes" (being about a cat and a clocktower), even though Clockwork Cat is trying to do the complete opposite of the heroes of that book.

My one complaint is that it's rather short. But when you come across something as lovely as this, you'd be a fool to complain.

I actually played this game for my youtube show, I know you guys don't have to look at it, but I feel the devs might be interested.

Excellent work. Adorable graphics. Interesting blend of soothing atmosphere (especially the piano music!) and frantic platforming. The 10 second theme is very well integrated too, with the clock being both an element of time left and also affecting the platforms themselves.

5 stars. Reminds me of Fez, but more fun.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
