Cool animations, the graphics are really good. I like the dust animation detail when the player stops and the particle fx. I also had some problems with the controls. This can be improved a bit. In any case, good job!

I like the whole concept of the game, the controls are not very responsive but it's a game that I love to play!

check my game if you want to leave your opinion =)

Nice artstyle. I think the speeding up for running is not fun. It doesn't feel responsive. But great first game.

That's a fair critique. The tight level layout bogs down the movement somewhat, I still stand by it because speeding up and realistic momentum was a core mechanic I wanted in the gameplay but it it doesn't suit the level layout. Please check out the dev logs, I speak to my shortcomings in level design.

Great visuals in the starting like perfectly made. I could not understand the character later when it got transformed , it seems like a mix of animals. A perfect platformer with Wonderfuk art work which sits properly with the whole game. Love playing it!!

Do check our game too if your haven't yet 😁, thanks for making the game!! Keep doing !!

Cheers. I commented on your game. Please check out the dev logs, I explain all the reasons for the lack of content in my game(spoiler alert, I am fairly new to this and found it quite challenging, but fun! :))

Is it a cat? Is it a rabbit? We will never know!

Sadly there were no more levels, and made me want more. Keep up the good work!

Hehe. I spent a lot of time trying to find a distinct cat sprite but then I realised the theme gave me a lot of room for interpretation. Thus Cat-bit...or Rab-Cat....or Rab-line. 

I wish I could've done so much more with the level too. If you care to, check out the dev logs, I talk a bit about the limitations and shortcomings of this project.

Awesome work! The platforming was responsive and the game looked and sounded great. Good interpretation of theme too. My only complaint was that I wanted more- and that's a good complaint to receive.

:) Thanks heaps. I wanted to make so much more too! I feel like I gotta explain that, if you care to check out the dev logs, I talk about it and explain myself further. Thanks, again. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
