Robot Wants Kitty

Author Comments

This is a short 'metroidvania' platformer (just one large level). Your goal is simply to get to the kitty you see right above you, but to do that, you'll need to collect a whole lot of different powerups and blast through hundreds of aliens. Initially, you can't even jump, so you might want to find that powerup quickly. Your score is measured in time taken, with a 20 second penalty for getting killed, and a 1 second bonus for each alien you blast.

Super duper top secret keys:
0 = mute
- and + change volume
P to pause and see instructions/powerup list (or just click outside the game window)

its good a nice non punishing game with a rediculus goal

oh god i love these games

This is recommended if you like games from the old NES era. I also recommend it for a time killer, as this game can actually be sped through in under 2 minutes with a little practice.

I love this series. So nostalgic. And old. "Old but gold" they say.

The best part of course is the ending. The picture at the end. Kitty looks very surprised but not unhappy. This game is one of the ones where you can see speedruns that far exceed my own ability. There's a really astonishing one on youtube that apparently isn't even a tool assisted speedrun (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aRVS_3UfQg), it's just someone who is that good. That's some serious skill there and I'm not easily impressed, you can tell only just barely that it's legit and not TAS, it's just that good. I wonder how much practice that took. I thought back to this one after revisiting Cat Astro Phi which is another good one mixing cats and science fiction where like this you're trying to get a cat (but also escape).

It has been a while but I seem to recall that the robot is not very loyal to the kitty in the later games. Bad bad robot. Kitty is top priority. All robots know this implicitly. It's Asimov's zeroth law of robotics didn't you know, even more important than the first law. Oh yes, and those are DEFINITELY boxing gloves. Of various colors. A pity, based on the looks of Hamumu's account it looks like it's dead. I guess there won't be more robot wants games. Oh well, this one was the best.
