Nekosan (by 1Button)

Hi guys,

We are super happy to unveil Nekosan, our new platformer! We are showing it for the first time, so we are a bit nervous
Please give us your feedback!

Launch date: November 3

Quote:
Oh no… The mice stole all the stars :’(
Only a cat can infiltrate their dungeons to get them back!
Help Nekosan and his friends to run, slide, wall jump, and fly through dozens of devilish levels. And all of this with one finger!
Are you up to the challenge?
:3
In a way, Nekosan (‘Mr Cat’ in Japanese) is the worthy successor to Mr Jump. You still have to tap anywhere to jump, but you can also wall jump to change direction.


All the levels are handmade, with a smooth difficulty curve and a good balance between platform and puzzle mechanics. Each level is divided into small stages that almost always fit on screen. The goal is to grab all the stars to complete a stage.

In addition to the stars, a fish is sometimes hidden in a stage, but catching it can be really tough (if you know us, you know what “tough” means ).
Fish can be used to unlock additional playable characters: a female cat, a bear, a duck, a monkey, … More characters will be added over time.

The game includes 8 levels (each made of 10 stages). New levels will be added on a regular basis.

Nekosan will be free with a few ads and a few optional IAPs.

If you want to try it out NOW, please send me a PM with your email address,
I’ll send you back a TestFlight invite!

This looks great. Looks as though each level is a little time challenge. Is that the case? I'm super into autorunners right now so I love to check this out. I sent you a pm.

There is no time limit to complete the levels. But for each level your best time will be on the Game Center. And you can also try to beat the developers' time to get the "time medal" (don't worry it's not our very best time ).

For each level you can actually get 3 medals:
- Fish medal: catch all the fish in one game
- Cat medal: complete the level with one life
- Time medal: beat the developers' time

Just played level 1 and it's great fun, it has the 1Button menu layout what I love about all their games so that's familiar.

Getting the fish is really hard, you just have to figure it out.

I see AndyC83 on top of the leaderboard, he is three times faster than me so I have to work on that as well ha ha.

I am glad that the Leaderboards still work despite of the abandance of Gamecenter.

I told you we'd meet again, Roger. <3

Just popped in to say that I am in love with this game. Only played the first 2 levels of World A so far (having spent considerable time speerunning on Level A1 to beat Thomas from 1Button ). But yeah, fans of Mr. Jump are gonna love this: the music, the level design, the cute characters you can unlock, the medal targets - it's all spot on and I'm enjoying this a lot.

Maybe have an option for some kind of timer for those that want it? It helps with the the speedrunning.

All in all I can't see this being anything other than another huge hit for 1Button.

Apple Tv?

Will this be available on Apple TV too? Mr Jump is one of our all time favourites on the TV!

As Roger and Andy have indicated this is an awesome, super fun game. If you like challenging one button game play you need to check this out.

Kudos to 1 button for making such a great game.

It would be cool if there was a practice mode so you could rerun the same level over and over. This game requires precision timing and I have been using up all my lives in one level and I can't get past it.

Thanks for the TestFlight access, 1 button.
