Tom & Jerry's Cat-astrophe (DOS)
|Tom & Jerry's Cat-astrophe
Tom & Jerry's Cat-astrophe is a single-player action game with many elements from the Tom & Jerry cartoon The Yankee Doodle Mouse. For a given time, you play as Jerry Mouse and achieve as many points as possible.
The game features two patriotic American marches and several sound effects, a few unused.
The driver is probably a standard of the developer, Softie. It supports 3 tracks of music and sound effects. On the 1-voice PC Speaker, only the most important track is heard at a time, while any other is muted. This is how the vehicle sound effect can pause and resume when a bonus sound effect plays.

This rip is missing songs.
All audio is hard-coded and requires a programmatic or log format that outputs to the PC Speaker. However, this is beyond the scope of this site.
The explosion sample is always heard, but sounds different depending on your PC's speed.
Pressing the F1 key (at any point starting with the menu) mutes or unmutes all other audio. Their driver is called by a programmable interval timer at 59.923 Hz and therefore sounds the same on every PC.
