Is It Any Good?

For what it is, this feline simulator is very good though somewhat simple with its gameplay. You race against the clock in different environments -- a museum, a supermarket, a bathroom, a living room during Christmas -- to knock various items off shelves onto the floor. This will likely fare better with younger kids than adults, as the bright colors and jazzy, bouncy music are meant to impart a cartoony atmosphere. In all, it should take a few hours to "complete" the game, though no new wrinkles are ever introduced.

So, there's certainly something to be said for its simplicity, and it should tell you straightaway whether it's right for your child to play. There's nothing objectionable going on here, and no characters even. The difficulty lies in positioning to hop from chairs to shelves to cabinets, but as soon as you're up there, you button-mash to swipe, swipe, swipe things from up there to come crashing down to the floor. It's this over and over again and nothing more. Chances are, if you or someone you know might find this appealing -- you would be right. But don't expect anything complex or more involved, as you won't find it here.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
