Catz (Game Boy Advance)
Also known as: Nakayoshi Pet Advance Series 3: Kawaii Koneko (JP)
|This needs some investigation.|
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Is there a debug menu accessible in the game?
Catz is one of the many games in Ubisoft's Petz series. This one in particular is known for the title screen music featuring a symphony of meowing cats.
Unused Speaking Frames
All of the characters in the game have frames of each of them speaking. However, in the actual game, it only shows a still portrait of their face, meaning these frames go unused.
Present in the tiles for the living room is "Debug", in an odd font.
In the mornings, the Sleep option is grayed out. Forcing the game to select it during the morning displays this otherwise-unused text:
It's too early to go to bed...
Does this exist in the other versions?
Code 03000CD409 (Japanese version) will start the main game at a sound test.
In Japan, Kawaii Koneko was the third game in MTO's Nakayoshi Pet Advance series, whereas elsewhere it became part of the somewhat more generic Petz franchise. For whatever reason, "2002 MTO Inc." was altered a bit, presumably to look consistent with the copyright symbol.
