Loveless Cat:

In Brief:
Loveless Cat made with Gamemaker Studio, is another of those short competition games that was entered into the fourteenth Gamiron competition that is held in Russia. You can choose from English or Russian languages to play the game.

The game is a 2D side scrolling puzzle/action platformer, suitable for children aged 7 to adults. :) The graphic is cute, the control feels a little spongy when trying to manoeuvre onto objects that enable you to jump to usually unreachable platforms. Push boxes to enable you to reach those platforms.

Vasily meets Mila online via a dating site, where they agree to meet up. The text appears to have been translated using an app such as Google Translate as some of the text is incorrect, or the wrong words used for example Vasily says he needs to find a gift and not go with empty legs instead of hands. Most of the text however is easily understood.

Avoid touching other creatures as you'll lose some of your health, friendly creatures are left stunned. As you progress, you'll see arrows that indicate a new stage has been reached. These often include a story board slide before returning to the game. At one point you are introduced to the shop where you can spend the gold coins you've earned. Your first purchase will be woolly hats for both Vasily and Misa. At one point you are asked to destroy three guns. Dogs are introduced preceding the guns; that, if not avoided will kill your character. When you die, you start from last checkpoint.

This is where the game ended for me because I couldn't figure out how to destroy the guns. You cannot proceed to the next stage until all three guns are destroyed.

Controls:
Left Arrow - Move Left
Right Arrow = Move Right
Up Arrow = Jump
Enter = move to next text box


Unfortunately, there are no options to use a game controller.
Conclusion:
The game is playable, but some parts of the game such as the information panel and the return symbol are still in Russian despite choosing English to play the game. I found jumping onto the small crates were hit and miss sometimes due to Vasily appearing to float a little before stopping. Also, sometimes when on a crate, I wasn't able to jump, so had to dismount and try again. This usually fixed the issue.

Overall, the story seems a little nonsensical. The language issues don't help matters either. However, the game is playable; at least until you get to the guns. If anyone figures out how to destroy the guns, please post details below. (It's almost 4am here in the UK and I can't think straight at the moment; plus, just had some root canal treatment done just over 12 hours ago, which has left the left side of my head like it's been smashed with a cricket bat/baseball bat.

The 2015 Gamiron 13, a Russian competition, had a first prize of $70000, with runners up prizes of $27000, $7000 and 2x $3500

Whiterabbit-uk,

Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found a single hit (Jiangmin) from 61 antimalware engines. Jiangmin is one of only several antimalware suites that often these games compared to better known and more reliable antimalware engines: so, it's very likely to be a false positive.

You can see the results of the installed games scan HERE

The downloaded executable for installing the game 'may' include some low-level adware that only opens your browser once to Falcoware's home page after the game has installed and also places four shortcuts onto your desktop (these can be safely deleted once the game has installed with no effect on the game).

The installation DOES NOT inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to Falcoware's home page following the games installation, it earns Falcoware games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away for free. Once you've installed the game, there are no more browser redirections. This is because Falcoware removed their installer almost two years ago (that installer would show an advert for a game while the game was loading (which always took about 20 seconds to ensure you'd seen the advert). It would also always open your browser each time you closed the game after playing it.)
If you're still not convinced of the games efficacy and want to be absolutely sure that the game is safe to install, please use a sandbox program to check that the game is safe to install before installing it to your C drive or other drives on your computer (assuming you have more than one drive).

Personally, I've never had any issues with any of falcowares games, even when the Falcoware installer was included.

There are free sandbox programs such as Sanboxie, GeSWall, BitBox, Windows Sandbox, Bufferzone (a six month commercial license was given away via the applications side of the project back in December 2009 HERE), Shadowzone, as well as others. (You'll find them all on the same page from Techwhoop.

I really love cats, I actually run a group on a local forum in my community that has nothing but cat funny posts :) This game looked very promising but it was very glitchy to the point where the game became not enjoyable.

It's my understanding that this was created for a game competition and that there was a limited amount of time to develop but it's just not up to standards

Hopefully the developer can improve the game a bit to make it more playable.
