Rocket Cat-girl game (Bania Kururin)
Bania Kururin is an action arcade game in which you play as an anime-style cat-girl character with a rocket-pack on her back. The author of the game has kidnapped your little cat-friend and plans to eat him, and your task is to rescue him by collecting stars. At the loading screen, click the large picture of the cat-girl to get to the main game screen.
There are two modes of play: Practice and Normal. Practice mode is the top button on the main game screen. This mode gives you infinite energy and is a good place to start when first playing the game. Normal mode, the second button from the top, utilizes the energy gauge on the left side of the play field. As you hold down the mouse button to fire the rocket, energy is depleted. Releasing the mouse button slowly refills the gauge.
Control the rocket-pack by moving the mouse relative to the girl and click. The longer the button is held down the longer the rocket fires. When the mouse is positioned above the girl, the rocket will propel the girl up; likewise, when the mouse is positioned to the right of the girl, the rocket will propel the girl to the right. Inertia causes the girl to continue to move even when the mouse button is release, and gravity will cause the girl to eventually fall to the ground.
The game consists of 10 levels of increasing difficulty with a few bonus levels thrown in as a reward. A timer counts down each level giving you 60 seconds to collect as many stars as you can. A few of the levels test your dexterity by awarding points only when cat-girl is kept within a particular target area, such as with the electric field and the moving heart. When cat-girl is hit by the electric field or by enemy objects, such as the bombs, time is reduced for the level.
You are given five (5) tokens—shown along the right side of the play field—with which to re-try any of the levels for a higher score, though you are not obligated to use them. The game culminates with a boss fight against the 'author'. Unfortunately, the cat-girl takes too long, the cat-friend is boiled and its ghost chides the girl for the delay in rescuing him. There may be an alternate ending to the game, though I have only seen the one.
Mastering the control is key to getting higher scores. It takes a little practice to get the hang of it, though the game is not difficult to play and have fun with immediately. Start with Practice mode to get a feel for the game, and then advance to Normal mode for an increased challenge.
An excellent production with charming graphics and exceptional gameplay. There is lots of fun wrapped up in this quirky Japanese Flash game.
