In the world of iOS platformers, there are many games that pique my interest and might keep me entertained for a while, but there are few that end up remaining on my device for good. One of the ones that made the cut and has achieved that prestigious status on my iPhone is The Adventures of Timmy: Run Kitty Run [Free] by CB Labs.
We quite enjoyed The Adventures of Timmy when we reviewed it in October, and later that week it reached the pinnacle that all cat-related games strive to achieve when it was the Kitty Korner game of the week on our podcast.
For a limited time, you can grab all of this platforming, loosely cat-related goodness for the low price of free. Follow Timmy as he goes on an adventure (duh) and tries to rescue his crush who has been kidnapped by an evil bully. Timmy is normally a timid fellow, but when he dons his cat suit it gives him the courage to stand up for himself and get back his future main squeeze.
The Adventures of Timmy is so successful because it keeps the game mechanics simple and the controls nice and tight, but creates a wonderfully moody world to explore with the fantastic artwork and story. Speaking of tight controls, recently the game was updated with an option for fixed directional arrows in addition to the default analog stick. I still prefer the analog stick, but it’s always nice to have the option of both.
The Adventures of Timmy: Run Kitty Run is a great little platformer to add to your collection, and there’s really no better time to do that than right now while it’s free.
