Oooo a total classic!!! This was one of the first ever games I played on a PC. I was at my cousins house at the time, I even preferred Alley Cat to Kings Quest 1! I was always getting into nasty fights with that dang dog 😉
Its got the CGA graphics, so if you’ve got a pair of shades handy you might want to grab them. But then again, you are visiting my site, so you might already have them on! The graphics were really good for that time though. I mean, we’re talking 1984 here.
Most of the happenings in this game are inside the building, but it’s a mission to get to the window first! You have to avoid the dog, which every now and then runs along the ground by the trashcans. Jumping on the trashcans would be an obvious choice here. Then you climb up and along the clotheslines and into the windows. Of course, there is always going to be more challenges, such as mean people throwing stuff out the windows. Inside the windows are the so-called levels of the games, like sub-games. Catching fish, catching mice etc you gain points. The ultimate goal is the pretty white cat that our hero loves and wants to kiss!
This game gets a lot harder as the levels go up. The number of trash cans decreases, and the number of times the dog appears is nasty! Also the same with the people throwing things out the windows. Inside the windows things get a lot harder as well.
All in all this is a classic! The quality of the game, and the gameplay itself is pretty spectacular for a 1984 game that is only about 30kb in size. One downfall I would have to say is that it gets really hard, and I’m not exactly the best gamer around, so I kind of couldn’t stick with it when it got too much for me!
