An idea I had wanted to try for a while, and also an excuse to play with flixel. But not great.

Cat got Lost

From the evening session of a game jam today.

play in browser (flash)
source (as3 w/ flixel)

    I had a good time with this game. The level difficulty seemed to fluctuate a bunch but the basic idea is simple and fun. The gameplay feels like unpacking data or a pattern which is pleasing to me.

    I like how if you move to fast you are punished for accidentally hitting doors you didn’t intend to which leads to restarts. I also like that you randomize the level orientation and color on every restart to make the player have to think a little each time rather than just memorizing a rote series of moves.

    What game jam is this from?

  2. It was from a game-jam I organised at work; I haven’t set up a website for it yet; maybe on Monday.

    is something supposed to happen after you get what appears to be the “end game” screen? As… yeah. I dunno (“Cat, you’re etc. etc.”)

  5. No. The end game screen is the end.

    Very cool. Level commentary is a cute effect. Selective use of keys is a neat concept for puzzle games, keeping the map simple makes the game pretty easy, in a good way. (No overly difficult annoying puzzles that many puzzle games tend to have at least one of)

    Impossible for colorblind people to play, yellow and (guessing) green keys look the same. Try blue instead next time.

    My cat enjoys this game. Every time the cat meows, he tries to paw at my laptop/shove his head under the laptop/pace around the laptop looking for this mysterious cat! The funny thing is, he’s never responded to cat sounds on the computer before.
