Cat Fling

Author Comments

This took about 3 months to complete. This is one of my larger projects. Grab the cat, spin it, and throw it. It is as simple as that. Have fun, and thank you in advance for your comments.

EDIT: Fixed round bug, fixed gammer errors.



I flung da kitty!!!! LOL This was cute! I think I'll add this to faves. Good job!!! (I think my hubby will like it too, as he hates my cat).

Simple, yet addicitive

As with all good skill and timing games, there is always that desire to go beyond your mark. Higher, faster, longer, etc.

In this case, we refer to a cat's altitude, rotation speed, and air time, respectively. I imagine it will make cat lovers a tad uneasy, but I love watching that furr ball scream as it spins out of Earth's atmosphere. The timing becomes difficult when the frames start cutting out the cat's rotation, as well as keeping the throw straight and not hitting any walls (walls will slow your cat's rotation down significantly). Still, I have found myself wasting a lot of time playing this game: it has a good replay value, but it would really be nice if there was a high score listing, both local and global.

Since everyone also likes posting their accomplishments, here are mine:

I've thrown my cat to Saturn, with 52 rotations for over 40,000 points. Top score: 87325

Very nice.. I broke 1million during beta once. Havent done it since. Thanks for the review..

not that good

graphics were very good, style was not original (tons of games like this one). Sound wasn't bad, no violence (not necessarily bad, but would have been good in this game). Interactivity was BAD. The cat throwing thing doesn't feel realistic at all. You should have made that better.. You have to swing the cat sideways while a more logical way would have been swinging around.


screw the last guy

It's scary how this get's 10 from so many people

Wake up people, there are better games out there.

I think the whole point of reviewing and scoring something, is to score it on how good it is, not based on weather it's "Cute" or "Slightly fun"

Stop throwing out mindless tens. Sorry to be a party pooper or rain on your parade, but handing out high scores is for things that were obviosly challenging to make, look great and sound great. Not a game where you throw a cat into the air.

To the Author:

I think you have good flash skills, your game is slightly interesting and it didn't entertain me for more than eight seconds but still, I respect you for putting this on newgrounds. I would hope that you think that people reviewing you should give this what it deserves and write constructive critisism rather than throw 10's out, so that you may take their advice and create something amazing, or if you're content with this, then just leave it at this, and that's fine too

yours sincerely Liam Fin.

Ps: Don't take this to be offensive, It wasn't designed to be.

I understand that this game is going to be short lived, but it is kind of the point. The game is more of a demonstration of my action script abilities for my portfolio. It really shouldn’t bother you that some people give it high ratings. It has gotten its share of bad reviews, all of which I take into account when I make improvements and new games.

Love it or hate it, take it or leave it. It doesent make much difference to me.
