Natto-Cat - 1.4

Aaron Maupin (maupin)



Natto-Cat is a unique Boulderdash style arcade game. You play as RB51, a half robot / half cat agent searching underground caves for cat snacks. Adversaries include walking, exploding custards, force-fed exploding rabbits, and expanding green peas. When enemies explode, they splatter blood (or custard) on surrounding objects, so it is a bit violent. These splatter effects can be turned off by editing a prefs file. There are 25 caves (and 6 intermissions). There are 3 difficulty levels for each cave, the highest of which is extremely challenging. Currently, only a Windows py2exe binary is available.


Natto-Cat now comes with a cave editor, so you can make your own custom caves and cave systems. This is the same editor I used to make the included caves... it's buggy and the interface leaves much to be desired. However people were asking for an editor, so I decided to patch a few of its bigger, unsightly holes and upload it.

If anyone creates some fun caves, send them to me and I'll put them up at for everyone to download.

As for the game itself, some small, specific bugs have been fixed, including an amusing one where in certain rare situations (multiple exits in a timed cave) custards and rabbits could ride an exit elevator out of the cave.

I'll release the source sometime in the future. It's mostly embarassment that is holding me back. Trust me, there is no more tangled a mess of Python spaghetti code than the code for Natto-Cat... would be the perfect example of how NOT to program, if only the game didn't work well.
