TentaCat: The Lost Lineage is a 16-bit style platformer where you play as Aqua, an octopus cat who was raised by a scientist in a lab, and has never seen another one of his own kind. Together, Aqua and the scientist known as Dr. Schenkenberg, go on an adventure to find more of the mysterious TentaCats.

This is a demo for my first game project, which I started back in March of 2018. Please look forward to updates to the game as I continue development.

Demo Features:

  • 3 Playable levels.
  • Lots of items to collect.
  • Item shop where you can buy power-ups.


Use the arrow keys to move, Z to jump, X to shoot, and Enter for the inventory. Gamepads are supported.

Good job man! I enjoyed playing this..cute tunes, graphics, and the movement is tight.

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Looks good!

Thank you!

I have to say, I'm not a fan of one-hit-wonders in video games. Otherwise it looks cool.

Awesome game! I did find a bug. I fell into the first pit and I could keep running and shooting but under the world. I could hear the shots but couldn't see the character. I believe it was the way I fell, against the right wall and I repeatedly jumped as I fell.

Which stage? I've encountered that  issue 1-2 times,  but I  have  a hard time trying to replicate it. I'll be sure to look out for the issue so it may be fixed!


stage 1

Love it

Thank you for making such a cute and amazing game. I'm not very good at platformers, but how far I got on the First level  This was amazing. and it's free! All I had to do was search up 16 bit platformers. Thanks for such an amazing game.

Thank you for trying my game out!

Great, light-hearted gameplay that put a smile on my face. Reminds me a little of Wonder Boy with its old-school charm.  Looking forward to this game's development!

Thank you so much!

Thank you!!!
