Black Cat Adventures

Black Cat Adventures is a 2d casual platformer. Explore the levels, capture the creatures with magic, eat vegetables for health, pick up hats and potions to gain magic energy. Portals transfer you between levels. 160 randomly generated levels available.

The idea for this project is to bring to life a retro game concept for adults and kids in a casual format, with no pressure. No online connectedness, or chat. Just a simple and fun game, simple play, and easy controls.

Once the game base is complete, we can build on that, and add puzzle features, which will allow us to build educational games for math and reading practice for a variety of skill levels.
