We love all sorts of games. Sometimes it is hard to cover a game in our traditional review style that’s why we have tidbit-style reviews. These shorter reviews cover games that deserve attention too but simply don’t fit our good, mixed, and bad template. In addition, they get a monthly summary article to give them even more reader attention!
Castle full of Cats | 85%
Now and then I have to look for my cat again. He makes a sport of looking for new hiding spots, only to lie there silently. This activity translates into a video game; developer Devcats has already released a few hidden object games. On Xbox, there is now a sequel to A Building Full of Cats. A Castle Full of Cats is better in almost every way, with especially nicer cat art.
In this game you arrive in a castle, where all the cute cats turned into Halloween-themed monsters. Clicking on them transforms them back into their cute selves, though of course they retain their mischief. I don’t think I have to explain what a hidden object game is, right? This genre combined with cats is a perfect match to play alone or with friends, most cats are easily found in the environment but others need more detective work. Some furr balls are harder to find as they hide away in interactible objects, for example drawers or paintings. Finding the clickable objects is the hardest part of the gameplay, especially as some don’t make much sense.
New compared to A Building Full of Cats is having to find other objects like keys or gemstones to open pathways in other rooms. It brings more game elements to this simple but fun hidden object game, although figuring out how to use the map could have benefitted from some additional fine-tuning. I’m extremely positive about Devcats work though, everything about the game screams catlovers. The lovely art is the main selling point, and spending your money on this cheap game is also good for another reason. Devcats rescues cats with the money earned by their games, all my respect and love for that. <3
