A short 2D platformer about the adventures of a cat, a wrench, and a clock.

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 27, with the theme “10 Seconds.”

Thanks for front page, daily 2nd, and weekly 5th! :D



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This is an endearing, calming, and serene short game.
I really enjoyed the change of pace from faster moving games, and the animation of a little white cat using a wrench to turn the clock back is pleasing.
The sleepy audio track fits this project perfectly, especially at the end of the cats little adventure.
Really great stuff, especially for a 48 hour entry.
Keep up the awesome work!

Excellent for a short game. The concept it neat, original, and is implemented very well. The pixel art and the theme all fits together nicely. The music is simple and relaxing, which also fits the theme.

Overall, everything fits together with the simple - yet cute - story of a cat stopping the clock and taking a nap. (Or perhaps giving up his catnap for a tasty meal.)

The only problems I had were not being able to pause the game/stopwatch and being able to spawn 100 sleeping cats at the very end by pushing X. Of course, neither of those will affect the rating I give.

The reason that I didn't give a full five stars is because I believe that the amount of effort and time spent should be part of the overall score. And also because there are very few creations that are perfect enough for the highest rating; you'd have to increase the content and length of the game without going overboard or making it repetitive.

So in other words, you did a perfect job in making the game what it should be.

Simple and amazing


Rated 5 / 5 stars

amazing and cute game-- the ending made me melt, though i did find a small glitch where if you just hit X and bunch of times, the cat teleprots and pus another wrench onto the panel, by no means does this change the rating i would have put in originally, amazing game ^^

Very well done, very cute game. Wouldn't mind seeing the idea expanded into a full level set.
