Author Comments

NOTE: This game is a work in progress demo featuring 3 playable levels. TentaCat: The Lost Lineage is a 16-bit action platformer, where you play as Aqua, a TentaCat who visits his birthplace to find his lost past. This is the demo for my first game project, which started development in March of 2018. Use the arrow keys to move, Z to jump, X to shoot, and Enter for the inventory. Gamepads are supported.

The first boss is too hard

Tentacat. 10/10

Well-put together platformer! Was surprised at the amount of polish and nice little touches the game has, and I'm excited to see more. Only problems I had were that I felt like the jumping mechanics were a little bit awkward in how upward momentum is instantly zeroed when you let go of the jump button, the game could stand to tutorialize some of the mechanics like walljumping which I totally forgot existed (you can do this by making the level have a safe spot where you need to traverse it in a certain way, like by walljumping), and the boss was a bit of a difficulty jump (though I love the difficulty of it personally haha)

Why The First Boss Battle Is So Hard And Why There Are No Turbo Attack

bryalmdesign responds:

I updated the game to tone down the boss battle difficulty

Some decent stuff here. Through you can collect the same hidden fish twice.
There's also a bug where my tentacat stopped reacting to the controls but an empty message box showed up and the only way to move was spamming "Z" button

Edit: i found this bug at right checkpoint of a floating island on a 1-2 level

bryalmdesign responds:

At what point did you encounter that bug?
