A Cat and a Jetpack

A Cat and a Jetpack

The jetpack factory makes lots of jetpacks, but you only get one. Choose the jetpack with attributes that you want.

When walking, use arrow keys to move and jump
When using the jetpack, use the mouse to aim and thrust. Falling from high up or hitting walls at high speed will kill you.

The game is hard. You'll probably need to upgrade your jetpack factory a lot to beat the game.

Created in Monkey (
Graphics done in Inkscape and The GIMP
Music from MUSOPEN ( - Flight of the Bumblebee)

Interesting game. Really difficult in the beginning to get upgrades. Played for about 10 mins and had like 2 coins.

Good use of the theme, the graphics were nice.

Fun game ahah

The upgrade screen is quite hard to read. It took me some time to figure out that I didn't have enough coins

Also, I can actually pick up the two jetpacks, that's not clear on what happens. Is the first one replaced by the second ?

Also, keyboard is quite useless, maybe using mouse only would have been better ?

Anyway, I enjoyed and laughed, so good job mate !

First: I love and hate the music!

Second: I've always wanted to play a cat with a jatpack!

Third: Great work!

A little too difficult for my tastes, but I think it was what you were going for with the flight of the bumblebee raging in the background. The mechanic was very cool - I hope you make a slower version, as attacking enemies with jetpack flames is a great idea!

Kitteh nuuuuuuuu :( My cat's broken, he always likes to fall when high in the sky. Also I liked the music in combination with a lack of max velocity :p

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

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.
