Hay guys, I made a game! It's my first release.

I'll simply post what I posted over at

The game is a simple platformer, in the style of snes/genesis games. It's sort of small, only took 2 weeks to make. An average player may need an hour at most to finish it.

I'm not completely happy with the game and Multimedia Fusion didn't behave very well quite a often.
Because of that, I couldn't add additional control keys, so the game uses Eternal Daughter's control scheme for now (shift/ctrl/arrows/enter). This will change as soon as I figure out how to fix a certain extension-related problem.

About the game:

-It's called 'A Game with a Kitty'
-It's a platformer
-It's 13 frames short
-Has a save feature
-It's a mix of Mario and Metroid
-It's quite cute and also suitable for younger players
-Doesn't have a proper story
-Was made without any planning at all

Even if it is just a shortie, I still hope you'll enjoy it.

Hint: The game is fairly open-ended, but do always try to collect as much money as possible. If you're at a loss in the beginning, visit Solicia Hills.

This held my attention longer than ED, it has better colours and just feels more 'fun'.
Posted by Flava 23rd June, 2005

Awesome game - nice work. And yeh I agree I prefer these type of games to ED - ED I just found a bit boring a dull. This game's pretty colourful and fun :)

Hmm I have a little question. When I talked to the genie the first time it told me to bring 100 shilling. Then when I actually have that amount and go there nothing happens... Is there somekind of talk button, couldn't find one in the FAQ, or is that a bug.
Posted by Johan Hargne (Wartagon) 23rd June, 2005

The same happened for me actually :/ Great game though. Very fun! One of the few things I found anoying was the music in the Oraga Cave. At first it was great, but then the same tone from 2 different instruments echoed through the whole song. Anyway, it's a good game in general.
Posted by The Chris Street 23rd June, 2005

To talk to anyone, press Up. You have to be facing them, and them you, and you should not completely overlap them. This game is very very good, but it looks waay too similar to your other game SkyHammer :)
Posted by bernie[FA] 23rd June, 2005

I forgot to add that to the readme file. Thanks, Circy.
Posted by bernie[FA] 23rd June, 2005

One more thing - I uploaded a new version with a fix. Sometimes, the game would hang when using doors and switches too fast.
Posted by CsaR 23rd June, 2005

Nice game! Thumbs up from me. Thnx for the help with the talking.
Posted by Hayo 23rd June, 2005

I totally love this, the egine is great, the gfx are made one of the best games in this community in just 2 weeks..finish more games please :)
Posted by 23rd June, 2005

I didn't try the game yet but the graphics look so cute and polished. Very good work.
Posted by Ski 23rd June, 2005

this game is awsome! i love the style and the houses at the begining!
Posted by Jenswa 23rd June, 2005

What a cute game!
Posted by Ski 23rd June, 2005

It also seems quite big for only 13 frames long!
Posted by DaVince 23rd June, 2005

Make this a longie instead of a shortie! :D Good job!
Posted by Radix 23rd June, 2005

Kicking rad.
Posted by hop 23rd June, 2005

Wow, this is incredible! I can't belive this only took you two weeks! Cute Kittey!
Posted by Imadjinn 23rd June, 2005

Another magically delicious outing from the Fallen Angel peoples. MAGICALLY DELICIOUS!!!
Posted by Radix 23rd June, 2005

Although, is the cave music supposed to make me want to stab myself in the side of the head?
Posted by hop 23rd June, 2005

Yes, I think it is. However, the rest of the music is fantastic. What did you use to make it?
Posted by RenatoDep 23rd June, 2005

The game is pretty cute and very done, I personally am not a big fan of the Mario style graphics but it's been put together very well. The color scheme is also very well used. The music is very cute too. Is it original?
Posted by Ski 23rd June, 2005

I didnt think it was too marioish until the levels where canons shot rockets at you, after the first tower i believe?
Posted by RenatoDep 23rd June, 2005

well, it is very marioish, but you added more details into it making it look alot better. But I can tell the influence. Nothing wrong with that, just that it's noticeable :-)
Posted by RenatoDep 23rd June, 2005

I didn't mean you, Bernie..oops :-)
Posted by bernie[FA] 23rd June, 2005

Thanks for the comments, everyone! The cave music plays fine on my comp but seems to mess up for some people. I'll replace it in the next version. Phizzy - did the game text at the end skip forward for you? It should list the amounts of bags you collected. Maybe it's a bug? And about the water bug, did that occur in the level with the sinking/rising water? Thanks~ By the way, the music is not original. It's from random internet places, and so on.
Posted by AndyUK 23rd June, 2005

So far great game! The cave music plays fine but is very annoying.
Posted by Cazra 23rd June, 2005

Great game! I liked the minimalistic graphics style and the pallete went well as well. I thought at first that the music was original. You sure this is your first game? People usually make at least a pong clone before making a well-done platformer.
Posted by Dustin Gunn 23rd June, 2005

Ummm, Snerlin, Bernie's like one of the best artists in FAInd and has been making (And not finishing, unfortunately) games for years...
Posted by Cazra 23rd June, 2005

ah, that clears things up.
Posted by RedHades 23rd June, 2005

Totally perfect game! To bad it's so low-rez. But it sure lives up to the Fallen Angel quality standard.
Posted by hop 23rd June, 2005

Wow, so high ranked already! Go Fat Kittey Go!
Posted by CYS 24th June, 2005

Awesome! I'm addicted to it since i started the game.
Posted by Willy C 24th June, 2005

this is Awsome to the max! pluss, I love pussy....cats.
Posted by Joshua M. 24th June, 2005

This is totally awesome! I love it! It's really enjoyable, I'm going to play it now :p
Posted by Steve Harris 24th June, 2005

Nice work Bernie
Posted by The Chris Street 24th June, 2005

I still believe that Bernie is probably one of the best klikkers ever.
Posted by renkin 24th June, 2005

Fun little game. Very well done for two weeks.
Posted by AndyUK 24th June, 2005

I know the map screen music, I have that game lol. Its from Soliel (aka Crusader of centy to the yanks) for the Megadrive/Genesis.
Posted by Retired Kliker Lazarus 24th June, 2005

Awesome work, Bernie! :D
Posted by Leric 24th June, 2005

This is THE best kilk game I've ever played. I'd love to see a sequel or even an expansion of this game.
Posted by Ben Berntsen 24th June, 2005

This doesn't seem like a Klik game... that's the biggest complement I can give you X^D Everything just feels right. Awesome stuff.
Posted by izac 24th June, 2005

Hey the pictures look colourful!! downloading...
Posted by izac 24th June, 2005

BoRiNg!!!:DThat kitty cat can go and eat a rat cuase he's got nothing better to do like a dog that eats poo!:D hehe:P

Who is this kid?
Posted by gustav 24th June, 2005

a pathetic idiot
Posted by bernie[FA] 24th June, 2005

I've always been a fan of constructive criticism! Thank you, U.2. Once again, thanks for the nice comments! If you find any bugs, please let me know. I'll fix them as soon as possible. I've uploaded a new version of the game (1.2b). There's a starter app for those wo want to play windowed from the beginning now, and ESC actually lets you exit the game now. I've also fixed a few bugs, including the water bug Phizzy mentioned.
Posted by Joshua M. 25th June, 2005

I think U2's comment is about the dumbest comment I've ever read.
Posted by Alltower 25th June, 2005

Best klik game I've ever played. Fantastic stuff, Bernie.
Posted by Dr. James MD 25th June, 2005

fantastic game. cant really fault it
Posted by bernie[FA] 25th June, 2005

Thanks for the comments! ^^ Phizzy - you're right, it was a different water bug I fixed. But I think I've got the right one now. Gotta be more careful next time, and maybe have a few people beta-test it. Thanks for the bug report! :)
Posted by Aaron Tomko 26th June, 2005

Fun game Bernie. The pixel art is great!
Posted by pulsecode 26th June, 2005

AH! I love you Bernie! hehe! Great work as ever mate ;) This one really slipped in under the radar. Great stuff indeed!
Posted by izac 26th June, 2005

Believe me people i've made more games than you have dinners:P and if i could upload some of my games, I WOULD! i can not find a place to upload that:(
Posted by Joshua M. 26th June, 2005

And it's so simple to find free webspace. Sheesh! And that you've created more games than we have dinners doesn't mean they're good, now does it? You're just not uploading them because you don't wanna get bashed :p right? XD
Posted by Aaron Tomko 26th June, 2005

Hmmmm... Survey says!... Correct! And Bernie, I just started playing and wanted to know how I'm supposed to get past the huge wall at the beginning of the tower at the beginning. Is there some kind of speed run I'm not doing? Again great looking game...kinda reminds me of wind waker for some reason.
Posted by izac 26th June, 2005

Finding webspace is hard!:( i've tried to many times!:(
Posted by Hayo 26th June, 2005

Yeah life must be hard being a retarded fluff. Now go to like master Phizzy told you and upload your stuff.
Posted by bernie[FA] 26th June, 2005

Thanks for the review, Hayo! ^^ Aaron: Just go to Solicia Hills and you'll find the right way.
Posted by Dr. James MD 26th June, 2005

no worries U.2, if your games are as good as you say they are then ill host you for nothing. unlimited space and all that. just say the word ill have you an account up in 24 hours
Posted by Cazra 26th June, 2005

Just out of curiousity, what games are the midis from? I liked the music in the game.
Posted by pulsecode 27th June, 2005

Well, i know the Solicia Hills tune is from Brave Fencer Musashi (PS1, Squaresoft) and a great tune it is too! Ah, Bernie, this game just gets better and better! Are the "pop" sfx from Klonoa? they certainly sould like it... but i might also be insane.
Posted by CYS 27th June, 2005

I've been waiting for anyone asking how to get past tower 2, but couldn't find any. Looks like i'm the only one who don't know. :P I have running, charge and climb, how do i past through the HUGE pit?
Posted by Cazra 27th June, 2005

You need the glide ability. You get it in the lakes.
Posted by CYS 27th June, 2005

Lake... and i thought i've scanned through the whole area. Thanks!
Posted by izac 28th June, 2005

You would really do that for me jimmi?:)
Posted by renkin 29th June, 2005

This game really is great. I love the secrets you need to come back to.
Posted by renkin 29th June, 2005

There, reviewed. Great work, Bernie. :)
Posted by Spram 29th June, 2005

Woo! Excellent game. I love the color palette and this is fun too. A little on the difficult side though. I'll give it a chance.
Posted by CYS 30th June, 2005

I found a bug, a VERY SMALL bug at tower 2, the area where there's a big cannon which can shoot rockets from 3 areas. When you pause the game, the cannon will still continue to move and shoot rockets, but the rockets will just pass through you.
Posted by bernie[FA] 30th June, 2005

Ohh! Bad. Gonna fix, thanks!
Posted by renkin 1st July, 2005

Anyone got 20/20 bags yet?
Posted by bernie[FA] 1st July, 2005

I've uploaded a new version that shows how many bags you've collected per level, and how many are hidden in it.
Posted by Ecstazy 2nd July, 2005

Nice game, but the music in the cave in the beginning can be really annoying.
Posted by Bibin 4th July, 2005

greatest... click... game... ever!
Posted by Ted Boomerang 4th July, 2005

okay, question: I can't figure out what to do once I get to the moon. am I supposed to try and use the star guy as a platform? because I can't think of a way to get up there.
Posted by bernie[FA] 4th July, 2005

Once again, thanks for the comments! ^^ Ted - In Windy Whiskers you were taught a new move, you'll need to use it here. Press left or right when next to a wall to hold on to it, then press up or down to climb.
Posted by Sashman15 8th July, 2005

Lol, awesome game, nearly perfect engine, nice.
Posted by shockedfrog 9th July, 2005

The bag in Kicas Town seems to always respawn, and the Kicas Town bag counter always reads 0/1. Picking up the bag increases the total bags collected counter though - I haven't tested if it can go above 20.
Posted by Ted Boomerang 11th July, 2005

oh, I just used that ability to wall jump because I thought that's what it was supposed to do. Durrrrr
Posted by Airflow 11th July, 2005

I win! The whole game was funny. X) The graphics left me in awe. Without cheating, I got 19 bags. Is the last one earned by that Kicas town glitch?
Posted by bernie[FA] 12th July, 2005

Damn bugs. I've uploaded a fixed version now. EFD, make sure you have the latest version that shows the bag count for each level on the world map. It'll show you were the last bag is.
Posted by mojofltr 12th July, 2005

Wow! I don't post here very often, but I had to drop in and tell you that this thing is great! ;)
Posted by david-clarke 13th July, 2005

i can't get the fairy in solicia hills to talk to me,even though i have 100+ coins
Posted by bernie[FA] 13th July, 2005

Stand to the left or right of her and press up to talk to her. fojomrtl - thanks! :)
Posted by PinkLlama 13th July, 2005

brilliant game!! I dont usually like platform games, but this one has a real hook: Kittey! I was playing this game so long my eyes felt really funny, and it had suddenly gone from 8:00 to 10:15!! Great occupier; great game; Great job!! Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Posted by Gerwin Kramer 15th July, 2005

the animations are the best thing. very very good game only thing I dont like is the music in the orange cave.
Posted by david-clarke 15th July, 2005

Posted by PinkLlama 16th July, 2005

Help Me! I am really stuck! I know all you game wizzs r gonna laugh at me because you completed the game in like 2 hours, but anyway, I am stuck on the second tower, you know the bit with the long tunnel with the funny spikey balls, and the floor that goes down when you touch it. Do you need a new power to cross this (I have glide, charge and run)?? I don't know what to do! <14 years old and shite at games>
Posted by bernie[FA] 16th July, 2005

Run, jump and glide all the time, that'll get you across. :)
Posted by taco ( Crobasoft ) 18th July, 2005

Great color choices.
Posted by Lukas Hägg 20th July, 2005

This is one of the best klik games I've ever played, seriuously. The kitty is just too cool. ^^
Posted by PinkLlama 13th August, 2005

thanks! I'll try harder!
Posted by Silverdrake [Draconianware] 27th August, 2005

Yay for kittys!
Posted by 848695 13th October, 2005

Really awesome game, I love it. Excellent art. Thanks for that game.
Posted by en kerro 5th December, 2005

It's very good game, BUT climbing is very hard and annoying... it sometimes just doesn't climb. But otherwise thumbs up.
Posted by en kerro 7th December, 2005

And where is the last bag in ALIBALA HEIGHTS? I have seen it, but I have to find a door what leads there... help!
Posted by Airflow 22nd December, 2005

Thanks for that. I think it was fun. Some constructive critisisim is what I like to give but I got almost nothing. It would be able to sell on the gameboy market if it was exposed enough and I don´t dought that it would get recognition. However, it is a bit short playwise for that kind of market. How do you think about other types of games you have made if any?

There is a time and place for everything, but should you consider going deeper into the vast sea of computer code?
Posted by bernie[FA] 28th December, 2005

Thanks for the comments! :3

Perttu T.: That one is tricky! Find something door-shaped near the bag in question.

EFD: Kitty was meant to be short. I'm just having fun here, hobby etc. I'll probably keep making smaller freeware games for a few years. Only when I keep things small I manage to finish them. I still need to learn how to stick with my projects until the end before tackling something bigger.
Posted by TheoX 10th November, 2006

This is a cool game (and an old one), but I hope someone is still looking here, because I need HELP! I'm in the beginning area with the four areas (not including the save point) including the town, cave, solicia heights (or whatever it's called), and some other level... anyway, I've got all the bags I can see, but I have no idea what to do. Help?
Posted by TheoX 10th November, 2006

Nevermind! I tried pressing random buttons near the genie and she actually said something to me! So, now I'm currently at the first boss fight.
Posted by alex37 4th December, 2006

I just finished Kitty, and I can't belive that only took you two weeks...(compliment). It was just challenging enough, and extremely addictive. My favorite aspect is your's stupid and hilarious at the same time. "Go Fat kitty"'s ingenious.

This game is evil because it took only 2 weeks to make. Despite being like a typical platformer, it's fun!
