KINECTIMALS is a pet simulation game involving a variety of wild cat babies (an African lion, a leopard, a cheetah, and others). In addition to caring for the cubs, you go on an adventure to explore a magical island once controlled by a kind pirate. As you explore, you find parts of a treasure map and unlock more of the island. You will also decorate your home with wondrous treasures you find or buy along the way.
You interact with the cubs by petting (just reach out your hands and start rubbing, and your cub will start purring), cleaning, feeding, and playing with them. The farther you get into the game, the more toys you and your cubs will collect to play with, including a volleyball, Frisbee, water gun, lures, vehicles (they sit on top while you drive), and much more. You can also use a special instrument, called a Plunderscope, which helps you and your cub find treasure hidden under the ground.
