Hello folks, this is my first post here as well as my first project.
Chico vs The Feline Army is a mildly simple game, but with an absurd story, characters and setting.
This is actually a collab between me and two friends, but I'm the one doing the programming.
It might seem a little unoriginal to state that it's a medium-paced sidescrolling shooter inspired by the likes of Megaman...
...and maybe it's even worse to say we're trying for a slight retro feel.
It's a fairly simple project that's not very ambitious.

Title (in portuguese) :
The story follows the quest of a penguin named Chico to end the tiranic world government of a cat. (I warned you, it's absurd)

Here's the main theme: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3d33y0co3l3can5/Chico%20Theme.mp3
(composed and performed by me!)
Everything was done from scratch using only the Java API. (we're focusing on producing sprites ATM). Here's what I've accomplished so far:
-Simple grid-based solid tile placement
-Jumping and gravity
-Collisions with solid tiles
-Scrolling stage with adjustable level witdh
Given the time, this could actually turn into something decent, but I hope it's likeable for now.
