Indie Intermission – ‘Clockwork Cat’ A Well-Oiled Machine

Clockwork Cat ss01

Today I look at the game that managed to reach number 2 in the latest Ludum Dare and it is quite the cute little platformer. Today’s game is Clockwork Cat from Patrickgh3 which is a cute little platformer that has a constant ten second time constraint for you to move between checkpoints.

Clockwork Cat has been designed in a wonderful pixel art style that creates very appealing visuals throughout the game and helps by adding to the mood of this lazy night trek.

As you are a cat you want to prevent the clock striking midnight as all you want to do is sleep so you must take your trusty wrench and prevent the clock striking twelve so you can get a good nights sleep.

You only have ten seconds however to move between each checkpoint and winding back the clock will also effect objects on the level so there is always that to keep in mind as you try to solve some of this minor puzzles.

Average play time – 5 minutes

Although the gameplay is not that difficult Clockwork Cat is a fun experience and a short one at that. The game contains some great concepts and beautiful art showcasing the great talent involved when creating the game.
