CATS

and DOGS

Really nicely presented game, good music, hope you decide to develop it further.

Fun game; with plenty of scope to make more levels.

And to quote D. (age10) 'amazing - really enjoyed how hard it was'   < read that as a challenging enough to want to finish it!

10/10 as there’s a cat and I like cats. If there was a dog too you’d get 11/10.

Developer

But... but... There is a dog!! All the security guards are doggos. Please consider leaving an 11/10 review ;)

It's super cute. I adore the presentation and the punny name is amazing. I think some of the mechanics could be introduced in better ways to make them a little more easy to learn.

Thank you for the feedback! I totally agree, that would be a good thing to focus on if we spend more time on this game :)

Also, you should have made the main character a chicken and named the game Poultry-Heist.  Boom-shakalaka.

Developer

Hahaha, YES! Well I guess now we already have the title for our next jam game ;)

This is great, I am trying it on a Mac. I like cats a lot, and I like ghosts and heists too. The gameplay is fun and cute and I rate it 5/5 purrfect! Great work in such little time!

cute! I liked the gameplay and it fit the theme of the jam. nice light puzzles, would be interested in seeing more. nice job. you should check out paranormal captivity. they had a similar idea but within a prison. great minds think alike!

Thanks! And I'll certainly check out Paranormal Captivity: their pun game is on point!

We now got a MacOS build for those without Windows machines who want to play: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xs4au8czgeapwxs/PolterheistMac.zip?dl=0

Please note: We cut this build after the jam time limit.  Sorry!  Mac build features some optimisations to make it work, so it looks a little aesthetically different.  Gameplay is exactly the same though, no changes or fixes made to the fundamental game.

cute and cool game. i think it could have had a tutorial since (at least for me) the mechanics werent as clear or better indicators of what to do. But thats nitpicking for a game made in a 48 hours jam and i stilld efinitely think its a fun game. rated 5/5 cats

Developer

Thanks for the feedback :)
