Alley Cat - Atari/DOS cat classic coming to the ZX Spectrum

Probably one of the oldest games on our website is Bill Williams and published by Synapse Softwares 'Alley Cat' for the Atari 8bit in 1983 and MS-DOS in 1984. Playing as Freddy the Cat, your objective was to perform challenges such as catching mice in a persons home in order to reach his Cat love, Felicia. For what was a very odd game indeed with Cheese the size of an entire room, and a humorous cat falling behind the fence, Alley Cat is now being ported over to the ZX Spectrum by Destr and aims to be just as fun as the original.

MS-DOS Version

Currently the ZX Spectrum version is in a very early stage of development, with no sound nor music being played. Nor can you control the cat or enter any of the rooms, at least using the emulator Spectaculator (Didn't try the real thing). But from the little we have seen, this is looking graphically appealing and much better than even the MS-DOS version. For further developments (Russian) follow the discussion forums and download the latest alpha here or on site.
