A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The puzzles become increasingly challenging as you progress through the game. You'll need a lot of trial and error to make it through, but don't worry -- there's no penalty for making a failed attempt.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Cat Physics is a strategy puzzle game that requires a good working knowledge of physics. Not that you need to know forumulas, data, or even the names of forces like momentum and velocity -- but you'll need to understand what happens when a ball of yarn is tossed in a certain direction. Or against a wall. Or over a  ledge. The content is cutesied up, with nothing objectionable for younger kids.

Is it any good?

In CAT PHYSICS, all you need to do is get one cat to toss a ball of yarn to the other. But of course there loads of obstacles between those two kitties, so you'll have to make sure you toss that yarn ball in just the right direction, at just the right speed to get it over walls, through tunnels, past trap doors, and so on. As the game moves on, it introduces switches and levers that must be hit in order to open up new passages. Some levels require a ton of planning, as you've got to get the yarn to that second cat in one toss -- no matter how many hurdles are in the way. It might be kind of tough, but it's a fun, family-friendly way to see the laws of physics in action.
