You play as a human girl with wings, and the last of your kind, and you must collect all the cats on the cat planet. While the controls are somewhat bizarre, in that any key will allow you to take flight, holding 'up' will increase your altitude, and holding 'down' will decrease it. While you can die, there are no game overs. However, you can't save, so the game must be beaten in one go!
this planet contains cats of:
- all lowercase letters: The title and the cats' speech follow this. However, the strange kitties in super cat planet prefer to use proper capitalization, which also applies to the 'boss' crow near the end of said game, and the Dark Angel at the end of the Bonus Dungeon.
- Bladder of Steel: There's no save system, so it must be completed in one go. The fansequel averts this by incorporating a save system.
- Darker and Edgier: Literally becomes this after you open the gate by pressing both the switches. On super cat planet, this also applies to the Bonus Dungeon and a secret area in the canyon that's... best left unmentioned.
- Deliberately Monochrome: The cat village and underground jungle use this aesthetic. super cat planet, aside from a few colors here and there, is mostly monochrome, with the exception of the ending area, the the secret p-switch dungeon, and the warp hub.
- Department of Redundancy Department: Five cats lined up in a row will greet you when you enter the factory segment.
- Eternal Engine: The factory level, featuring moving spiked balls and spiky crushers. To quote a cat from the game, "what does this factory make? nobody knows!"
- Flip-Screen Scrolling: The game shows one screen at a time. Moving to the edge scrolls to the next screen.
- Gotta Catch 'Em All: You are tasked to find all the cats. The game keeps count.
- Jungle Japes: The second area, which, save for the green background and grass, isn't too jungle-like, but is called as such.
- Lethal Lava Land: An area that can be reached from the jungle and factory features caverns with lava, jumping fireballs, and fire bars.
- No Name Given: The angel does not bear a name.
- No Plot? No Problem!: Find all the cats. Why? Why not, it's Cat Planet!
- One-Hit-Point Wonder: The angel has only one hit point. If she touches anything hazardous, she dies.
- Our Angels Are Different: The playable character is an angel girl who is a One-Hit-Point Wonder and a friend to the cats.
- Respawn Point: You respawn at the beginning of the same room you died in. However, super cat planet provides more straightforward checkpoints, so make sure to touch one if you can.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: The cats are round, friendly, and adorable.
- Some solid blocks look like the ! blocks from Super Mario World. There are also expies of firebars and podoboos.
- super cat planet has several costume changes that are obvious references to Touhou Project characters, particularly for Flandre and Cirno. The final boss of the Brutal Bonus Level outright challenges you to a danmaku battle. There's also a secret costume to become talkhaus mascot Demo.
- Smashing Hallway Traps of Doom: Spiked crushers appear in factory.
- Spike Balls of Doom: There are static ones that are mostly found in the jungle, and the ones in the factory that move around. They can be found in other places as well. super cat planet adds an additional red/blue toggle system to the spike balls and floating saws, as well as flowers that shoot pollen.
- Spikes of Doom: These appear in the final area with the crows, as well as the fansequel's very tough bonus dungeon.
- Unreadably Fast Text: The credits zip by pretty quickly.
