Single Button Platformer Le Gatuno Pounces Onto Android
A new feline themed single button platformer done up in the style of a Game Boy game by the name of Le Gatuno has arrived on Android. This retro auto-runner from indie developer Informal Penguins puts players in charge of ensuring the safety of an adventurous pixel kitty by coaching him to jump out of harm’s way and into some yummy fish to complete each stage. While Le Gatuno is a fairly straightforward affair it also demands precise timing in order to overcome its tricky later levels.
As the capricious cat darts across the screen players must tap at just the right moment so as to avoid unwanted contact with spikes and time consuming mis-jumps. Heading directly for the level exit without picking up any stars along the way is a possibility but those looking for more of a challenge will want to grab these collectibles to see if they can beat the clock. If all else fails players have the ability to invoke a limited flying power up that gives their kitty wings so he can flap right over whatever was troubling him previously. Platforming fans will enjoy this Game Boy homage.
Le Gatuno is free to download on Google Play.
