A downloadable game for Windows

Join Calzone the Cat on an adventure through Staple City. Calzone is really hungry and you have to make sure he survives the dangerous way home, through the many different areas of Staple City.

Calzone's Adventure features an 8-bit pixel art graphics style with support for modern resolutions and screen aspect ratios. Collect items and defeat enemies to get extra lives and a high score. There are also some puzzles to solve and small secrets to discover.

Calzone will acquire even more abilities over the course of the game, allowing you to explore every nook and cranny of the world.

Help Calzone brave the 4 different areas, each featuring 4 regular levels, 4 "puzzle" levels and a boss, complimented by small cutscenes. And there might even be an extra challenge waiting for those who complete the game!

Over half a dozen different enemies are trying to stop Calzone from getting his lunch.

Also featuring an awesome chiptune soundtrack by Rolemusic.

Supports customizable Keyboard and Gamepad controls, see enclosed readme file for compatible controllers.

The game was developed over the course of four months by me, including a lot of programming, virtually all of the art and animations, story, sound effects and of course the level design.

I hope you enjoy the game, let me know in the comments if you liked it. I'll try to fix any bugs that still come up, although I hope after a lengthy testing phase I found most of them.

How long roughly does it take to complete?

Probably around 2+ hours on your first try. But I'm sure it can be finished in one hour and if you explore everything it could also take 3 hours. And a new game mode unlocks when you finish the game for the first time.

Nice, thanks for your reply

God bless you.

Dear developer, there is part with making sad kid with destroying a car. Please change the part to destroy something else. This is not nice. I am Christian.

Dear developer, in level 1-2 player is white when i walk over spike section when i take item. Also in game the things to scratch and mouse and fish has white outlines.

Dear developer, game is not 64bit. Playstation 3 gamepad was not tested. Game does not minimize itself when i press windows start button on keyboard. Music does not stop in background.


Interesting looking game, does it support xbox controller?


Yes, it supports Xbox360 and Xbox One controllers as well as PS3+4 controllers, XInput compatible devices and a wide range of other gamepads. A full list is in the readme file supplied with the download/installation.


Also, I wish your dev name was Cal. So you could say 

Cal's Own : Calzone's CallZone


Why didn't I think of that :)


wow, a Non-Horror game on the featured page?

Is this a late April Fool's joke?


Hmm, I don't think so, but let me check just to be sure.

...nope, definitely not a late April Fool's joke.

Maybe Calzone is secretly a horror game disguised as a cute platformer? But who could be scared of Calzone the Cat? Well, maybe except all those dogs who got punched on the way home...


Calzone must have a huge meal waiting at home cause along the way it must have eaten hundreds of fish! :)


Yeah, Calzone is unstoppable when he's hungry ;)

Thank you very much for taking the time to make a video about my game, I'll take a look at it right away!
