Game #40
Alley Cat  
Action   Multi-type action


Alley Cat box cover

Alley Cat screenshot
If there were an award for "most enduring gameplay per KB of data," Alley Cat would have won my vote. In what seems like an incredible feat of programming, Bill Williams was able to pack hours of fun and diverse gameplay into only 38KB of space. As an alley cat, evade dogs, humans, and other obstacles to rescue your sweetheart. One of the most amazing things about the game is that it actually sets its own clock speed so that the speed of your computer is irrelevant. This means you don't need Moslo to enjoy the game :)
