Natto-Cat - 1.06

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.


Added support for Commodore 64 Boulder Dash Construction Kit caves. C64 disk images (.d64 files) placed in the "caves" directory should be selectable from Natto-Cat's main selection menu - if they contain valid BDCK caves. BDCK caves that depend on exact timing may not be winnable due to very slight differences in the Natto-Cat/Boulder Dash engines. (There may still be bugs in this BDCK support.) Fixed a very minor sound issue. Improved various minor graphical issues. Made fullscreen mode (800x600) the default.

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.
