Tappy Cat - Musical Kitty Arcade Launch

Hi everyone!

We are really excited to release our first game into the world after grinding away at it for months.
Tappy Cat is a cutesy but challenging 2-finger (or paw) music game featuring collectible playable kitties.
We wanted to make a music game that is approachable, with an acoustic/back to nature vibe, and rewards good play with something tangible. Hope you like our cats and music as much as we do!

For iPhone/iPod (iPad planned) https://itunes.apple.com/app/id993494269

It's another of those tappy music games, and seems particularly challenging. A difference with this one is that there are two separate streams of note bubbles and I'm having to move both eyes in opposite directions to follow them. Make too many mistakes and it's game over. Struggling a bit with level 3 but I'm determined to master the tree guitar.

Thanks for the comment!! You're pretty spot on, we call it "deceptively challenging", but the tree guitar does get easier with practice

Hello,

I registered to this site as your own site doesn't provide an email to contact you.
I wanted to thank you for this lovely game. It is the first rhythm game where I actually feel like influencing the music. I love the 2 handed mechanics, and the attention to details. I am very fond of it, and hope it gets some much deserved attention.

I encountered a little bug, on the "retry" screen, if I tap rapidly on it, it sometimes get stuck and I need to restart the game.
I think also it should be stated that trying to get a cat to join is a gamble limited in tries (4, I think?), and also in time (the investment resets after you leave the screen).
Finally, while not butchering a song is a reward on its own, since you took the trouble to implement hiscores, why not have friends or global leaderboards ?

Finally (really, this time!), not relate to my experience: on my country's store front, a relatively large number of people are reporting issues with the game not starting up on their iPhone 6 (I assume on iOS 10). I have had no issues on an iPod touch running iOS 9.

But really, this is a tremendous game. Thanks for it!

Edit: We just ran into a repeatable crash when selecting the 29th song Jingle Bell on an iPhone 5 running iOS 9. Restarting the device didn't help. Can't go further :O

Edit 2: version 1.05 fixed it, thank you!

Edit 3: Found a new issue in v1.05 with Pomp and Circumstances (track #2) being cut at about 1/3 of what was its length previously.

I'm thinking the cuts are deliberate to assist beginners at the start of the game. Track 3, has been cut also and this certainly helped me to complete it.

This was surprisingly difficult but captivating. I'm still determined to try and get through at least half of the available stages.

Does anyone here know if buying the unlimited lives ($1.99) also removes the video ads or are they separate purchases?

I purchased the 2 bucks IAP immediately after running out of lives, and didn't even know there were video ads, so I guess it takes care of them.

It took me a while to get 3 stars on that one, and I just tried it: inded you are right, both have had 2/3 of their contents cut. Really a shame
