01/21 Issues solved with 32 bit OS / Achievement pop-ups / Colors change

Hello,

I made a quick update that should have solved the following issues:

- Unable to launch the game on 32bit OS
- Achievement pop-ups are not displayed properly
- Sometimes the color of the cat is not the same that the area he goes through

Since I dont have the proper PC to make some test, I'm not 100% sure those issues are solved, but it should be !

If you still see some issues, please don't hesitate to post a message on the forum !

Thank you for your comprehension, and good luck in your quest to find Zag's answer !

“With fast gameplay, vibrant visuals and a control scheme that’s designed to mess with your mind, you’ll need great timing and even better concentration to play Psychocat, or you’ll really find out how many lives a cat has (hint: it’s not 9).”

About This Game

Psychocat: The Answer is an evil arcade game about the life of a cat named "Zag", who desperately seeks an answer. The purpose is to survive for 180 seconds in a Psychedelic tunnel by dodging the obstacles. The primary gameplay is that sometimes Zag will go through colored walls that will reverse your controls. With this unique and evil mechanic;

"it won’t be your reflexes that let you down, it’ll be your concentration – as control reversals mean you’ll constantly have to keep track of what’s up and what’s down (and left and right).

You control a Zag as he hurtles down multi-colored, gyrating tunnels packed with obstacles and (worst of all) zones that reverse your controls. The obstacles aren’t that hard to avoid themselves, but the zones that reverse your controls really mess with your mind. You can have the best timing in the world, but if you’re pressing the wrong button, you’re going to be one flat cat. Zag does change color to give you some indication of which controls are reversed, but with so much happening on-screen, that doesn’t make things much easier!" -Alphabetagamer

The game is great but I think it's unacceptable that a game where the only purpose is to dodge sh*t has hitbox problems...

maybe it's just me but this game definitly has hitbox problems

worth the 1€ anyway

Fun and trippy. Not a fan of the exit option, but it adds some artsy-ness to it.

fun if you want a challenging game that isn't too hard to pick up, but imho hard to master.

"Kitty down the rabbithole"
Quite challenging quick reaction game. You fly with kitty 3min through a spiral of obstacles. You can dodge, duck and jump. Unfortunately sometimes you get catched even if you don't touch the obstacle or just your tail was there. So pretty mean mechanics. Because there's no continue and no further control over flight or duck length it's very frustrating. Keep on trying and just stand through the 3 min.

It's a lot like Super Hexagon, but with up and down and the controls are constantly being inverted. If you hit an obstacle the timer and music and everything starts again, which is annoying because there seems to be only one music track. If I remember rightly Super Hexagon had more, not just for the different difficulties but every couple of times you hit an obstacle the song would switch between one of a couple of tracks which made it feel a bit less repetive. It's a lot less sleek than Super Hexagon and to be honest I only managed to play twenty minutes of this compared with several hours of that, partially because the music is purposefully awful, but there's only one track of it, partially because the control switching is irritating. Super Hexagon was stylish and insanely difficult, this just seems designed to annoy.

I paid about seventy pence for this, that's about as much as a can of coke. Honestly I'm not sure there's enough here to justify it even costing that.

The first thing that came to my mind while playing this game was Heroin Hero from Southpark. No matter now long you try, you'll never catch the dragon. But the trying is worth it.

The mechanics are simple but the game is very hard to master. Do not get this game if you get easily annoyed as the game seems unfair at times.

This is the sort of game that you can start whenever you have some spare time to kill but beware it could easily turn into a "one more try" game. You are not going to want to turn off the game and the game won't let you.

Will you find the answer?

I'm yet to find the answer, but I'm well on my way to get it!

What I can say so far is that it's a trippy fast-paced evil game that works by messing with your mind in a very bendy way. Travel through a tunnel for 3 minutes. It is said that "the answer" is at the end of the tunnel of inverted controls, so just giddy up and try to find the "answer", whatever it may be...
