It's the apocalypse. The Damned have been damned and the Saved have been saved. But someone forgot about the cats! As the water levels rise time is running out for our furry feline friends. Will you be able to save them all?


You are armed with a powerful hookshot, and some pretty awesome double jumps.

Controls took a bit of getting used to (I didn't read the instructions prior to playing), and it wasn't until fairly far into the game that I realized there was a rising water level. Overall though really fun game and just the right length (IMHO). Pretty happy with how the game went, dig the music too. Keep up the great work!
