Don't wake the cat!

by dannyhodge - Compo Entry

Stop the items in your room from waking up the cat, or it will not be happy.

The game is a simplistic tower defense game.

The Light bulb is the highest damage tower, with a long cooldown.
The Stapler is a good in-between tower, doing a fair amount of damage with a significant cool-down.
The piggy bank is a fast shooter, but doesn't do a lot of damage on hit.

Each tower costs 100 supplies. I may have completely forgotten that people wouldn't know that.

you should place some sort of tutorial in the screen (text only) to help with prices and cooldowns :)

Interesting concept, a simple tutorial would have helped me a lot though! Also, maybe it's just me, but that 'D' key item was so misleading at the start - I kept pressing 'D' in panic for a while! :d

Game crashed when trying to add a laser. Shame because the idea is really hilarious.

Yep, tutorial would be awesome. Anyway I love tower defenses and cats.

Unity Player crashed on me part way through the game. It might be worth republishing the game.

I also try to press the D key :D. Didn't read that this was a tower defense until I saw the turrets.

Seems to me like the crash has to do with which spot you place a tower... for me it was placing a lightbulb (first one) in the leftmost slot on the bottom row.

I had a lot of problems with web player crashes that made me remove features :(
I think it is just bad optimization more than anything. Thanks though :D

Couldnt quite understand the cost for each tower, but a nice idea!

I'm not really a huge fan of tower defense games but I did enjoy the random art style for this :P

I also got a crash, though it was when I added a third lightbulb.

Simple and nice. A title screen would be helpful so that there's a bit of time to think, although I did notice later that there's a pause button.

Yeah, Unity player crashes a lot. Way to go on finishing it in 48, though!

Fits the theme, however a tutorial will be useful.

Crashed hard on me while playing. While it worked, I struggled with it and lost because I kept wasting resources trying to build defenses. The tower icons were a little to close to one another at times and icons overlapped, creating misclicks.

A good start which has a cat in the idea. Think you needed a bit more time to polish thing and fine tune it.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
