AquaCat


A Cutesy Run n' Gun Platformer

 Hello! This is a demo for my first game project, AquaCat. The idea for this project came from a character design, which became apart mock screenshot for a fake game, and now this! At the moment I am learning how to use the Construct 3 engine as I'm going  along with the project. The end goal is to develop a polished platformer that is rich in gameplay and story. Try the demo using the link below!
