Oh wow, what a great game! I'm digging the pixel style graphics, I love cats, I love platformers – so you're pushing all the right buttons for me! 😁
It's so great to see that games like these are still created with AIR and Starling. I totally agree with what you said about small, code-first framework. (Yeah, of course I'm biased! 🙈) Especially for 2D games, it's just great to have total control over everything PLUS not force the user to wait for something huge like Unity to download and boot.
Keep up the great work, and all the best of luck for this game and any possible sequels! 🍀
Thanks also for taking the time to letting us know about it.
P.S.: Happy to hear you could sort out how to add controller support.
