Cornelius Cat in: How the Cat Saved Christmas



Someone was naughty and stole the Christmas decoration! Now it is up to Cornelius and Mortimer to bring it back and save Christmas.

Meet old and new characters, enjoy Dr. Seuss style rhymes and solve festive puzzles in a cotton wool landscape.

The game is a sequel to Cornelius Cat in: The Uncontrollable Pest. However, the games are independent and you don't have to play one to enjoy the other (although you are highly encouraged to try it if you enjoy this game :))


Most of the assets were newly created for this game, only the characters and the stage frame (in a modified version) were reused.
Oh, and in case you are wondering: The pie was baked from cookie dough and the icicles were made from a PET bottle ;)

Made for MAGS December 2018

I hope you all had a great holiday!

I haven't played the first part (missed it somehow) but I'll totally give it a go after playing this one. I loved the cotton wool snow =)
And kudos for the rhymes, they add a whole new touch to the game.

Great job cat!

Thanks! I hope you will not be disappointed because the first part does not have rhymes or cotton wool snow (but there is cling film water, at least  ;))

Can't wait to see the cling film water then :)

Just wondering,
Spoiler: ShowHide
I am quite a musical person it seems, I just heard parts of jingle bells on the icicles and played jingle bells just because, is this part of a puzzle that I missed?! Did the magpie somehow demand this?

I guess you got the point intuitively: the icicles play jingle bells and you have to continue the song (the idea was that due to resonance, the icicle would oscillate and finally break when you use the right frequencies).
The length of the icicles correlates with the pitch, so once you figured out that you have to play Jingle Bells and which one plays the base tone, you should be able to solve the puzzle. I'm glad you did, I thought the puzzle might be too difficult.
The magpie has nothing to do with it, you cannot interact with her before the icicles are gone anyway. But if you interact with the icicles and then talk to the reindeer before solving the puzzle, she will give you a hint (and an option to skip the puzzle, in case you can't hear the audio)

This puzzle was my favourite one of this game :)

I haven't played the first game, but this was a very cute game and the felt animals were adorable!
