Played with a ps4 controller, it was plug and go but read the keys as an xbox controller (or wii u? the a and b were switched from xbox). Some movements were a bit slippery but I figured that was part of the challenge. Pretty laid-back except for a couple of the bosses. Short but sweet, 3.7 hours to complete. (That rhymed!)

A short but sweet platformer about cats!

You play as Kimchi the cat and one day your owner just walks away from you while being distracted. And thus your feline adventure begins and it will take you from the graveyard to the city up and you'll end up climbing a skyscraper. Quite a feat for a cat who is looking for his owner. You'll also meet a slew of internet popular cats on your way, like Oskar and Nala.

The graphics are nice and smooth with hand drawn animations and a lot of attention to detail, at least on the kitties. The dogs, rats and pigeons, whom you'll be facing throughout the games' 5 stages are a tad simpler compared to the cats. You can tell that the devs put a lot of effort into making the game look good.

The sound is ok, but the soundtrack is great! It has soothing tunes and you'll fall in love with the end credits music.

The controls feel good, but there is a small delay when pressing the jump button and Kimchi actually jumping. But you'll get used to it in a few minutes.

Ib the short time (a little over 2 hours) it took me to 100% the game i haven't encountered any crashes, slowdowns or other problems.

Purr-ty cute game. Get it? Because it's about cats?
Okay, you're not getting. The reason that this is funny is because CATS, the subject of this game, make PURRING sounds. Purr-ty is a combination of the words PURR and PRETTY. It's like I'm saying it's a PRETTY cute game, but I made a pun of it.

Disclaimer: I played this with a controller. The game functions with keyboard controls but seems better suited to a gamepad.

The game is short and sweet; should only take 2 to 3 hours to fully complete.
The hand drawn artstyle is purr-fect... Well maybe not perfect. There are a few spots in the game where it leads to a bit of visual confusion. Nothing game breaking, just a few obstacles that you might not know you need to jump over, ledges that aren't super obvious you can jump on them, and a few fish bone collectables that blend really well into the background.
The platforming mechanics are nice and tight. You can choose if you want your jump to be a single big jump or a double jump. I found the double jump to be more practical, though for all intents and purr-poses they're both the same.
Jumping up and down isn't the only thing you'll be doing though. Over the course of the game's 5 levels the platforming is mixed up with climbable plants, stealth sections, hazards like falling pots, dogs, and even old ladies.

Only other thing you should know about the game is that it is REALLY LOUD. In order to lower the game volume you need to load into a level and pause the game. Not a great place for the volume sliders, but meow you know.

Now before you get all bent out of shape because of my bad puns; remember that you're not Anthony Burch. You're life is pretty swell and you have no reason to be upset.

I love this game. After beating the game, I feel sad that I waited for it to go on sale because I think the creators deserve every penny of the normal price. Although it is a reasonably short game, I can sense the love that the creators put into every aspect of this game. The animation is beautiful and fluid and the art looks fantastic. From a gameplay perspective, the game is slightly frustrating at times as it can be tricky to get the cat to jump just right onto platforms at times, but it's worth dealing with it for the cute ending of the game.

This is the cutest game I have ever played. The cats are super adorable and it feels like an old-school platformer from the NES days. Very much recommended. Also this is the first game ever where I got all achievements (100%). That's quite a sign.

Very cute game!

The story is very sweet and a little sad. It's about 2 - 5 if you play it from start to finish. Your goal is to get to the end of each level and beat the boss to continue. There's also a collection objective of gathering all the items each level has. It's very easy to complete all the achievements and get a perfect game score, and the inner completionist in me is very pleased with that.

The platforming was good, and I also really enjoyed the soothing piano music so I would suggest snagging the soundtrack as well. For the jumping, I prefered the double jump method of jumping as I could time my jumps better.

Overall I would definitely recommend getting the game.

The Purring Quest is a platforming game starring Kimchi, an adorable cat. It's challenging, cute, charming, and has a good heart.

But what I really want to talk about is the developers. You see, I suffer from hand tremors, that I must take medication for, and there was one part of the game that I just couldn't complete, because a finger would shake and mishit a key. I emailed the developer about it, and not only were they very kind, quick, and understanding in their reply, they completed that section of the game for me so I could continue. There's very few developers who would do that for a person, and I really appreciate it.

If you like platformers, and you like cats, I highly recommend this game.

The Purring Quest is a cat-themed platformer adventure game feature multiple cats, dogs, pigeons, moles and other animals.
If this review is too long for you, I suggest you to only read the first paragraph about the game's content and the final verdict at the end.

What is happening in the game:
You play as Kimchi the cat and you are trying to find your owner. On your majestic adventure, you also collect fish for endless hunger and help out other cats by finding their own items.

  • The Story | On your journey, you will find several cats that require your help and all of them have something to say. Cat dialogues are mostly trying to be funny and are full of references. And these references are funny just enough times for me to say that they're mostly funny. Some of them are just tacky, though.
  • The Graphics | Everything is hand-drawn and I absolutely love it! The animations are smooth and I can't even imagine how much work was put into this. It's one of the best-looking games I've played in a while.
  • Musical Background | The music is pretty good, in my opinion. It's not something you would listen on your everyday music player, but it's fitting the game well and it's quite charming. The sound effects aren't too bad as well.
  • Bonus Missions and Related Achievements | Apart from the main story line, you can also free cats from hidden cages and find a special item in every level. You also get properly rewarded with an achievement for each of those things.
  • The Gameplay | So, this game is a platformer and I have to say that it's a really fun one. It has some difficult skill-related sections, which you will have to repeat a few times in order to complete them. Across the levels, you will also find numerous (but not as you would want) checkpoints. Every level takes about 30-45 minutes to complete and there are five of them in total.
  • Performance | The gameplay is very smooth and there were no performance-related issues at all. Just as it should be.

  • Lack of In-game Options | This is not a very big issue, but everything you want to set up regarding graphics, you have to set before launching the game itself. The Unity launcher is the only place you can modify settings.
  • Lives | So, when you're playing, you have seven lives. You lose a life when you fall from certain heights. Unrealistic. Also, when you lose a life by getting caught by a dog, you lose a life and respawn at the checkpoint. If you run out of lives, you respawn at the checkpoint as well. So, I don't know what is the point of lives in this game.
  • Storing Chosen Settings | This is something that this game doesn't do. You have to choose your preferred language and jumping technique each time you open the game.
  • OS Compatibility | There is no SteamOS and MacOS support, which is weird, because Unity has the ability to export games for all of those operating systems.
  • Glitches | During the gameplay, I found out a few glitches that prevented me from reaching some fish. Also, the "Jumper" achievement seems to be broken.

The final verdict:
Personally, I enjoyed the game a lot and it offers nice gameplay, despite having some problems. I found it really cute and charming, more than usual. This game should get you buys for about 3-5 hours, depending on your desire to hunt achievement or read all of the dialogues.
Some of the profits are also donated to charity, so definitely get this game, if you see it for the right price.

If you want to really enjoy this game, I highly recommend using a controller :)

Updated Review 02/26/16
: Developers have finally tweaked the game so that players who don't own a controller can have an easier time playing the game but a controller in my opinion is still a great option.

I will say that if you're picky about controls, this isn't the game for you. It feels slow and janky and you sometimes lose lives because of it.

Why do I recommend it then? It has a lot of charm and I had fun with it. I like collecting all the fish, I enjoy finding a cat in each level and there aren't a lot of enemies meaning most of the time the control problems are simply annoying instead of game breaking. Also the life system is remarkably generous (7 lives with infinite continues) and the checkpoints are frequent so dying isn't the biggest deal. The art style really appeals to me, it has that slight amateurish charm to me. It could use some polish but overall the aesthetic works for me. I like the puzzles so far, I've done three levels and I've never been stumped for a long time. I'm not a huge puzzle platformer fan so this is a plus in my opinion but I can see people finding it overly simplistic.

If there was a middle of the road option I would pick it since there are a million platformers with better controls but I love the cat theme and I enjoyed myself. I think that's enough for a recommendation. I don't think it's worth full price unless you really want to support the developer or something.

Product received for free
Adorable cat game such a nice concept a lot of obstacle with surly can make you a bit frustrating but whos says all games need to be easy a bit of challenge it's always welcome.

Before you judge how awful the control are made : ''Learn how to jump'' learn how to be a cat. It does take a lot of patience with this game even maybe at first seems like easy going cat game (nothing special right?) well you be suprise , try it your self and don't get the negative fool you around.

Shout out to cats lovers, peace!.

If I'd realised that some of the price goes to animal welfare then I wouldn't have bought this in the sale, I'd have waited until it was back to its (very reasonable) £7 normal price.

A very sweet game with lovely, characterful cat animations. Made me swear at a pigeon, so that was new.

I would like to start off by saying that I found this game through Nala's instagram (yes, the cat!) and have been following it's development ever since. I love the idea of a fun game with beautiful art and music! The youtube videos made me so excited for the game and I am so glad it is finally out! I wish I didn't wait so long to purchase this game, but I was concerned by it's 85% user reviews.

Unfortunately I was fooled by the negative reviews, but I beg that you give the game a try for yourself before writing it off! It really makes me upset to see all of the negative reviews of such a wondeful game, and it made me cautious when I was pondering purchasing it. However once I saw what all the negative reviews claimed, simply 'poor controls', I figured what is the worst that could happen.

So I downloaded the game and from the very start I found the controls absolutely perfect. I am using a basic keyboard and mouse (but am yet to use the mouse for anything really) and have no lag when jumping, and absolutely no issues with attacking. Since I have absolutely no problems with the controls and find the art and music in this game fantastic to look at, I can easily give it a strong thumbs up!

One suggestion though, I think it would be very helpful to be able to select what keys to what actions. For example I find that I always miss the tab key (for pushing objects) and end up hitting caps lock, which is a little frustrating but is my own problem. Im very happy with my purchase and even more ecstatic that a percentage of all proceeds go directly to animal welfare associations!

p.s. I just saw that the developers of this game are working on another one and I cant wait for the next game to arrive!
