This basic mobile RPG is a great way to pass time while on the go or waiting around. Cat Quest II's missions are generally short and sweet, making them a fine fit for portable play. The touch screen controls are wonderfully intuitive, requiring only simple taps and double-taps to navigate the world and carry out most moves. The most complex thing players do is press and hold to call up the magic menu and then select a spell. This doesn't make the game especially easy -- different types of enemies demand different kinds of strategies to attack and stay safe -- but it does make it easy to pick up and begin playing. And the storytelling -- with its positive underlying message of tolerance and cooperation -- is just right for a mobile game; it's enough background and exposition to grab and hold the player's interest but not so much that tapping through dialogue becomes a chore.

But you should go in knowing that you'll need to do some grinding to both level up and earn money. At various points within the game, it becomes obvious that the next batch of quests will pit you against foes that weaker heroes will have a tough time defeating. That means you'll need to go find some monsters to fight -- in dungeons or on the world map -- in order to grow the protagonists' abilities and earn enough gold to upgrade magic and gear. It's a noticeably artificial means of lengthening a game, but also fairly common within the genre. And if that's the worst criticism to be leveled at Cat's Quest II, then fans of fantasy role-playing games (and cats and dogs) looking for a mobile game to quench their thirst may have found just what they're looking for.
