that's a cow
As the quirky title suggests, players embark on a bovine adventure in "that's a cow", squirting streams of milk at enemies and using udders to leap through the skies along the way. The ridiculously adorable game tasks you with colleting coins and apples as well, with the ability to pick various cows from a claw machine to spruce up your looks.
The game lets you use milk as a jet pack of sorts to traverse pastel-coloured platforms across more than a hundred handcrafted levels. There are over 20 cows to collect as well, because why the heck not?
