Stray Cat 10th Anniversary version

Stray Cat 10th Anniversary version

This very month we are looking at the 10th anniversary of Imanok's Stray Cat, a running-platform game for MSX1. And to celebrate, Imanok created a special version with smooth-scrolling. The fastest cat in the city just got flashier.

It was in december 2009 that Imanok presented his MSXdev'09 entry, Stray Cat. It took the 3th place, not bad for a cat. Check out the MSXDEV's archive for all MSXDEV'09 entries.

Flash the cat spent the day wandering around with his friends, looking for some food and having fun... But he suddenly remembered that she have a date with Iris, the cutest kitty at downtown. Oops, gotta go! Run and jump between the buildings, avoiding the obstacles you may find on your way, until you reach the house where Iris lives. Flash has 7 lives, as all cats have, and he will inevitably loose one by receiving an impact or falling from a building.

While the original is compatible with any MSX computer with at least 8KB of RAM, this special 10th anniversary version comes with a new smooth scrolling for V9958 VDP machines. You know, like in MSX2+, MSX turbo R, or any upgraded MSX2 machine. And the best part, it is not only free to download like the original, but you can also purchase it in physical cartridge format! It's a luxurious package with an eight pages full color manual. The benefit from the sale of this packed game edition goes to the AAMSX Association.

Now, be a good kitty and run like Santa's busting yo ass!

Love the artwork... AGAIN!
I also like this update of Stray Cat. It looks pretty slick. I've also updated Stray Cat in the MSXDev section to play online.

I remember we done a small contest on the 218 fair in Nijmegen. Some visitors has reached very far.
Very nice game. Thank you for updating it and give away for free, Imanok!

Aha, so it's not a turboR version, but a v9958 version with smooth scrolling! Great, thanks!

The game works fine on MSX1, but without the smooth scroll.

Thank you, Imanok! The smooth scroll is a very welcome bonus to the game. And it's easier on the eyes too. ;D

BTW, thank you for all your other gems too. My all-time favourites from you are Tina's (even bought the cartridge/couldn't stop until I finished it), and Txupinazo!
