Cattails is a cute, light-hearted RPG that revolves around hunting, foraging, and trying to restore the Forest Guardian. The gameplay is easy to pick up and play at any time, but can become a bit monotonous after awhile. The game isn't very exciting, and is meant more for relaxing gaming.
Fans of felines looking for a relaxing survival exploration game for their Switch will fall in love with Cattails. Its strange world has a certain charm that I've never experienced before and I'm sure you'll agree.
Surprisingly good! Like a passion project where someone was like, "I want to live out my warrior cat fantasy but also play **** valley and I'm going to tone down the cringe", it's very enjoyable hunting and solving puzzles and just being a cat.
A few rough edges do little to disturb the tranquillity Cattails lulls you into with its fun mechanics, cheerful writing and lovely soundtrack. Despite the conflict at its heart, you could happily while away hours frolicking in the fields, catching butterflies and chatting with your feline chums. If you’re after something light-hearted to relax with until Animal Crossing arrives next year, this fits the bill very nicely.
Despite the repetitiveness, Cattails does provide a lot of different things to do from romancing other cats, to starting your own community of cats. It offers something different from the usual RPG game and is well worth checking out if you are tired of the cookie cutter RPGs out there.
Cattails is a big surprise. A game that initially looks extremely simple but that deep down hides lots of mechanics, systems and high quality content that can keep us playing for dozens of hours. Despite some flaws, it’s an easy-to-recommend experience.
Cattails doesn’t quite reach the heights of the titans it attempts to mimic. Despite its flaws and shortcomings, it remains a compelling enough adventure survival simulator - one that cat lovers in particular will find plenty of joy playing.
Cattails is cute. The art style is nice. The music is nice. I just don't want to play it ever again. My initial excitement about playing after simple RPGs like Cat Quest and pixel art games like Stardew Valley was basically crushed by a mediocre game. In fact, instead of this, just play one of the other games I just mentioned.
I really enjoyed this game. After a while, it might get a little repetitive, but I like that you have daily challenges and can work towards a goal (creating your own colony). Also, cats. What's not to like!
This is a good solid game with one fatal flaw that prevents me from giving it 10 stars. There's no autosave, and it's way too easy to lose all your progress. So I played for about 20 hours, accidentally hit the wrong button, which I attribute to bad design, and I lost everything except the first hour of my play.
It's a really fun, semi-open-world game. Well, it's more a big world than an open world. It's super slow paced, so it's great for casual gamers.
This game is one of the most boring games I've ever played. The only fun part is killing mice. It's an ugly game. The pixelised cats are cute, and nothing else. Everything looks exactly the same. Exploring isn't enjoyable. I paid about 5 bucks for the game on sale, and that's probably the perfect price. I was surprised to find that this game had so many favorable reviews. It's worse than Harvest Moon: Light of Hope. And that's saying something. I gave it a 4 because I like the concept, I like the animal artwork, but I rarely play the game anymore. I was only able to stand it for about 20 hours before giving up on anything interesting happening.
So why did they get rid of the cat? Like did the mum not KNOW that the cat was in the back seat? And then she just casts it out into the wilderness? I don't get it. Other than that its it made my son cry at the start. I can't also get a black hare so its stupid so i can't get any further in the game.
The entire game is one long series of fetch quests and grinding currency. The map is close to useless and the hunting minigame which is needed to not be constantly starving is absolutely terrible; prey will hear you and run away before you’re in pouncing distance no matter how slowly you move, and you cannot run fast enough to catch them.
SummaryBecome a cat! Cattails is a unique animal simulation RPG. Hunt for food, fight invading cats, explore to gather herbs, and socialize with other cats in an expansive open world. Get married and raise a family of kittens, befriend your neighbors, and learn to live in the dangerous wilderness!
