THE CAT GAME OF THE MONTH.

TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER - [ CARMEL SEALEY ]

THE PREMISE OF be­ing able to adopt hun­dreds of cats might make some of our read­ers baulk in ter­ror, but your hum­ble re­viewer adores cats — dig­i­tal or oth­er­wise — so surely this ti­tle would be right up her al­ley. Alas, the prospect of mak­ing friends with 5,000 cats across a se­ries of dif­fer­ent rooms and en­vi­ron­ments wasn’t enough to re­ally dig in the claws. You are in charge of Mont­gomery Man­son and it’s your duty to turn this oth­er­wise use­less house into the per­fect sanc­tu­ary for all of your furry friends.

You can get by without dip­ping into mi­cro­trans­ac­tions, thank­fully, al­though you will re­ceive prompts. The cats you can adopt are cute and var­ied, but at the end of the day, we didn’t re­ally get any en­joy­ment out of play­ing this game. In fact, we felt im­mensely guilty, es­pe­cially when, while play­ing, we couldn’t give our ac­tual real pet cat the at­ten­tion she de­serves. Prob­a­bly best left for peo­ple who don’t have a cat and think car­ing for one is as sim­ple as buy­ing them 10 cat­shaped so­fas and help­ing them to play on their toy turntable...
