1. ClawSwitch - a Captain Claw port for Nintendo Switch based on OpenClaw project
    upload_2019-1-17_19-21-1.png

    First, I want to say a big thank you to these people:
    • pjasicek - creating the OpenClaw project
    • mialy - adding basic controller support
    • denispapec - implementing basic level 11 support
    • usineur - adding background music support
    • fgsfdsfgs - porting fluidsynth to the Switch
    What is this:
    Captain Claw is a side-scrolling action platformer released on PCs by Monolith in 1997. The difficulty of the game is quite high, but still the game is really fun to play. Your goal is to defeat enemies, collect treasure and defeat bosses on your way. More about the game here:


    Controls:
    A - Fire (Pistol/Magic Claw/Dynamite)
    B - Jump
    X - Switch weapon
    Y - Melee attack
    Minus - open in-game menu
    D-Pad - walk left/right, look up/down, climb up/down
    You can also use the left analog to do anything the d-pad does.

    Bugs:
    - not all levels are yet implemented, the game is playable to the 10th level, 11 is playable but very buggy and not yet complete
    - minimizing the game makes the sound a bit distorted

    Cheats:
    You can modify your game saves by editing /switch/claw/SAVES.XML file.

    Installation:
    OpenClaw.nro needs to be in the /switch/claw/ directory with all other files and assets needed to run the game.

    WARNING: You need to run the game from a hbmenu NSP, it will not work from Album! (it will make the system crash)

    Download (current release - beta 3):
    All versions will be available here: https://github.com/djmuted/ClawSwitch/releases

    The person standing behind OpenClaw said that he doesn't work on the project anymore, but still there are some developers interested in the game and we will try to improve it and make it complete.

    Yay furries!! Looks like fun. :3

    Tell you what PC game I'd really love to see-- a port of Hocus Pocus. That game had such beautiful music and art direction.
