The Battle Cats
We chose to review The Battle Cats due to two reasons – the name of the game sounds cute and then the picture of this game looks nice too. So we went ahead and got the app.
Unfortunately The Battle Cats is one of these apps that you download and then install only to find out the game has to download a ton of other files off the Internet. This is really annoying but there’s nothing you can do.
Unfortunately despite the newly downloaded files The Battle Cats fails to impress. The idea behind the game is more than strange – cats are the best and most powerful weapon ever (?). Once you run the game you will also have to watch a short movie that tells the story of the game. The movie is boring but fortunately you can skip it. When this is done you get to the main menu of the game where you can start missions. Our first mission was to conquer Korea. This is how we did it – you find yourself with something that looks like a spaceship, sitting on a lawn. Well, this is your base where you can produce new cats. Once you have at least one, the cat starts fighting the enemy, which in this case is a dog. Produce as many cats as you can to overwhelm the enemy and this is it. You cannot command your cats in real time and the battle is nothing short of comic – the cats and dogs bite each other and this is everything they can do! When you kill all the dogs you get to destroy their base and you are victorious.
We won’t blame you if you don’t find anything interesting in this game. We don’t either. It’s really hard to say anything about it… We’ll continue with the graphics – the game is in 2D only and like in many other cases the sound is okay, unlike the gameplay.
To sum it up – you won’t make a mistake if you skip The Battle Cats. The game does not really offer anything except long download times, dumb intro movies and gameplay that raises eyebrows. Really, would you play a game that depends only on overwhelming your enemy with numbers and no strategy at all, not to mention you can’t command your soldiers? We wouldn’t.
The Battle Cats is here on Google Play.
