OverviewOverview

Catlateral Damage is a running, jumping and knocking-things-over game where you play a mischievous cat who wants to knock its owner's belongings onto the floor. "Bother that cat," as one children's book puts it.

You have objectives but play is open as you run around the house, topple neatly organized books, shatter vases, meow at nothing, tear up curtains, nap in obscure places. It's as much a cat simulator as a platform puzzle game.

Drawing on how rogue-like games work (multiple runs through tough dungeons) each time you take on a level it offers a freshly generated challenge. Between goes you can upgrade your feline with persistent stat boosts and abilities.

The main Goals mode challenges you to cause damage in different locations with no time limit. You can keep going until you have used up your cat's energy. You can also race against the clock to get a certain number of items onto the floor, score as many points in a 2-minute time-frame. You can play in a sandbox mode where you explore the environment to unlock cat friends and special abilities, but don't have objectives to compete.

The Goals Mode is the main campaign mode to unlock levels. There is no time limit, and relies instead on the cat's energy. Players can play at their own pace, and a run ends when the cat's energy level runs out. You can pick-up cat-nip to slow down the game's speed.

There is no real fail state, but levels are unlocked by finding a key in a level, or by completing a score or toppling/playing with items in each level.

The Procedural Mode unlocks after playing a level of Goals Mode, and the Litterbox Mode (Free Play) Mode unlocks after trying one Procedural level. The Litterbox mode lets the player explore any unlocked level with unlimited time and energy.

Crouch can be set to Hold or Toggle.

Interactive item objectives are represented by pictures instead of words, requiring little reading for level goals. In the game world objective items are highlighted with a brighter outline. When in a level, specific progress on a started goal is displayed clearly on the left side of the screen. You can adjust the field of view to help with motion sickness.
