Illustration Friday: Cat

Play Whack a Cat.

Ok, I know this is a pain, but this content requires the Macromedia Flash Player 8. If you do not have it, please click here (you’re going to want to get it eventually anyway). Get Flash

I have to admit, this theme for IFriday had me stumped. Then, after visiting some of the other submissions, I got depressed–you folks are good. Anyway, I decided to have some fun with it so I developed this little game. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks to my son Nick Sarrecchia the III for letting me use his voice.

Please have your volume on and give this a sec or so to load.

You have to let it load to a screen that says ‘Click here to Whack the Cat’ with a picture of Clancy the cat in the upper corner. From there you can click to play Whack the Cat.

This may take about 1-2 minutes to load on a 56K Modem.

As always, your feedback is appreciated.

  8. lol Great! One of the more original ideas I've seen for this week's topic. πŸ˜€ It also makes me yearn to find a game of whack-a-mole to play.

  9. Hah! That was amusing. Good work. When I clicked on it I was expecting it to actually be a whack-a-mole style of game. You never can tell how some people feel about cats.

  10. Ok, I know this is a pain, but, from what I can tell, this content requires the latest Macromedia Flash Player 8 (sorry, I thought the last version would work). If you do not have it, please go here (you're going to want to get it eventually anyway) to get it http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflash/. Hopefully that will clear up any problems viewing this content.Tony

  11. You're a dog person, right, Tony? πŸ™‚ We've had a feral cat hanging around that this approach might work on… I wasn't quite sure if I got the game working properly, but it's a nifty concept and piece of animation design in any case – excellent work!

  12. I must be doing something wrong. I updated my macromedia flash, and I waited till the status bar told me it was done loading, but nothing would happen for me.
