After releasing my previous game, Tree Planter 8000, I decided that I'm ever to be taken seriously as a game developer, I can't just make nice games about planting trees and I'll have to ramp up the VIOLENCE for my next release.

So on the same day as releasing tree planter, I created this game; They're skulls, not cats, a game set in HELL with SKULLS and VIOLENCE because I 'm a real game developer gosh darn it.

Use the arrow keys to move around and avoid the cats SKULLS for as long as you can!
