Catshift

by ragnta - Compo Entry

Hi,

The cat can shift his shape, if collect an item.

My highscore is 300.

Enjoy it! :)

Update:
I created a post mortem version. This version include a new ground.
If you catch the dogs 10 times(twine, vasesplinter, or cannyon), you will enter the mouse arena. You try to catch the mouses! If you catch a mouse, after the mouse arena the dog will wait one seconds before he follow. :)

Audio is awful, but the game is amazing. Most amazing cat shifting game ever if I say so.

Good idea for a game and it was implemented well. It’s a nice take on the infinite runner genre.

This is wonderful! I love the pipecat animation, as well as the music. Pressing left lets you move infinitely fast to the right, but that felt like a feature instead of a bug. I couldn't figure out how to legitimately outrun the dog, though.

The combination of the bright colours and scratchy sound made me feel like I was on drugs, but that's not necessarily a bad thing! I didn't really see much of the theme in there, so maybe I missed something, but I enjoyed escaping from the giant dog for a while. Well done. :)

Fun idea. It is a bit flat in its depth but the music is catchy and the ideas in there are cool enough to keep you engaged with the game for a while. Great job.

For some reason my keys would not move the cat. All I could do was jump. I love the graphics.

Cute sprites, could use some funny music

Oh god that music! Not really sure how shapeshifting was helping me. Is the number of cat faces related to speed? I'm a little bit confused.

Great little game with cute hand draw art.
Keep up the cool work!

I can see this becoming a phone game. I mean, who doesn't like cats. Was there no music?

I came back because you asked me to check the rules, so I double checked them. Here are the things I'm confused about:

- The rules show a sad cat face - when does that appear? For me, the cat faces just disappear.
- The rules suggest that the pipe/ball/vase will add cat faces and make me faster. Is there a difference between them? Does being a particular shape have any effect?
- When I grab one of those items, it actually slows me down for a second, which is the main reason I get caught by the dog. How am I supposed to balance this when the thing that speeds me up is also making me lose?

Hehehehe! Funny idea, but sometimes is a bit repetitive.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
