Super Cat Tales, also called Super Cat Bros, is a platformer by Neutronized and published via FDG Games. It was released for Android and iOS stores on November 17, 2016.

ControlsEdit

  • Tap & hold left/right - Move in the respective direction
    • Double tap & hold - Run in the respective direction

GameplayEdit

The player controls one of eight cats by tapping and holding on either the left or right end of the screen. A double tap and hold causes the cat to run, allowing it to jump across gaps or onto walls. Cats can be encountered in various levels on the map, each with their own abilities. Some of these abilities are required to access secret parts of a level, or acquire collectibles, in which some backtracking and replaying of the levels would be necessary.

When a cat comes into contact with a hazard or enemy, it becomes temporarily stunned and often kills the enemy in the process. This stun phase, indicated by spinning stars around the cat's head, lasts for a few seconds. If the cat runs into another hazard or enemy while in the stun phase, it dies, sending the player back to the map screen. If the cat gets out of the stun phase, however, it can run into another enemy without dying again.

LevelsEdit

Super Cat Tale's levels are divided into six distinctly themed areas that appear in the order of Cedar Woods, Sandy Shore, Nugget Canyon, Snowy Plains, Lava Ruins, and Temple Jungle.

EnemiesEdit

Enemies, referred to as "minions" in the game, span a wide variety of appearances and behaviors. Most are only specific to one area type on the map. Enemies die when the cat hits them, but causes the player to incur a five second penalty. A few helpers also have the ability to kill enemies with one or two shots. Any enemies killed will respawn if the player reenters an area within a level after wandering outside its perimeters.

  • Turnips - Are either found sleeping on the ground or hovering in the air.
  • Fish - Found swimming in water. The green variant simply swims while the red variant will jump out of the water to attack the player.
  • Squids - Move in a set pattern of walking in one direction before jumping into the air, hovering for a moment, and then falling onto the ground.
  • Monkeys - Throw tennis balls at the player upon sight and will run if the player comes close to them.

Interactive objectsEdit

  • Interactive scenery - Appears in various forms and is commonly located on the ground and may hide bells. Running over it will cause a disturbance resulting in the scenery being moved or partially destroyed.
  • Checkered spot - Found at the end of levels and stepping on it will cause the completion of a level.
  • Pink spot - The spawn point for the player that also allows them to change cats or spawn helpers.
  • Water - Makes the play swim and restricts their movements to moving forward and upwards.
  • Strong currents - Appear in water and push the player back.
  • Blocks - Prevent access to other areas and can be destroyed by Brutus.
  • Moving platforms - Platforms that move in a set pattern allowing access to new areas.
  • Vanishing platforms - Platforms that vanish when stepped upon and later reappear.
  • Shop - A store run by a snowball which the play can by helpers for in-game coins or benefits with real currency.

HazardsEdit

  • Sea urchins - Stationary enemies found clinging to sea floors or ceilings.

PickupsEdit

  • Bells - Hidden throughout the level.
  • Coins - Scattered throughout the level and allow items to be purchased from the shop.
  • Golden cat - Appears as a token after three deaths and grants the player invincibility.

Cameo appearancesEdit

Super Cat Tales features many cameos from previous Neutronized releases, such as Drop Wizard, Dyna Boy, Snow Tale and Mimelet.
