    Cat Quest is an excellent and charming action RPG for all ages. Combat is enjoyable, and the usual elements in the genre, like inventory control and stat tracking, never become overwhelming. The quests flow smoothly into one another, and the adventure is just the right length. Most of all, the game is charming, and despite the story and game mechanics not delving too deep, thisis a title you'll want to keep playing until it's 100% complete. For adventure and action-RPG fans, Cat Quest is a must-have.

    There’s a lot to love about Cat Quest, most of all perhaps its familiarity. That trait feels more like a blessing than the death knell that it is for a lot of other games, and it’s evident that this is a game with a lot of heart. It’s a bit like eating comfort food – there’s no pretentiousness in the execution, and each bite has an expected outcome but most importantly, you know it’s going to be delicious.

    Cat Quest is a delightfully charming experience, one that people may overlook as a kids game, and they would be sorely mistaken. It has depth, an intriguing art style, some wonderful dialogue, and a compelling combat system that – when combined with everything else it has to offer – delivers a game that is hard to put down.

    Despite my issues with the game, I did ultimately enjoy Cat Quest. Its brevity actually works in its favor, making the issues outlined above feel less egregious than they would if the game were longer. I still wish the story wasn't quite so bland and the gameplay wasn't as repetitive, but I also find myself wanting to jump back in to finish the handful of side quests I have left, so the game definitely does something right. If you just want to kill monsters as an adorable cat and experience as many cat puns as possible, Cat Quest may be the game for you!

    Colorful and fun, Cat Quest is a simple action-RPG with a great heart. And lots of cats.

    Cat Quest does exactly what it says on the tin - this is a full RPG experience, condensed into a few hours of play, stuffed to the brim with adorable kitties and cat puns. If you want a short but sweet RPG with plenty of moments that will make you smile, Cat Quest can be a great choice, especially for kids.

    The gameplay of this action RPG is very basic, almost oversimplified (it's available for iOS devices as well), but at the end of the day it could be a pretty fun and entertaining experience. The Italian localization is excellent, and it's full of kittens.

    Five Word Review: Surprisingly catastic, pun-loving game.
    Favorite Thing: The overworld map. It looked fantastic and resulted in just enough of a desire to see what was at every corner.
    Least Favorite Thing: In stark contract to the world map, the dungeons were nondescript and boring.

    Playtime: ~ 8h
    Enjoyment: 9/10
    Recommendation: I think, like me, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how much you enjoy this game.

    Cat Quest is a great game.
    Gameplay-wise it is simple, yet coherent in its rules.
    Story-wise it mostly cares about being fun and funny, with lots of puns and sketchy, yet self-aware story. It doesn't hide it's absurdity either.
    In conclusion CAT Quest is a CATchy game, with CATastrophic humour.

The visuals are actually veryThis is a fun - and simple (it is VERY simple) little cat centered .. err... might almost call it a brawler. The visuals are actually very nicely done and very colourful. There are lots of quests that take on average around 5 minutes maybe.

    The game plays very well with mouse and keyboard - but it is a long, long way from most other PC RPGs in terms of complexity and playtime.

    This is a casual game for younger players (or older players that just wish to relax a little from more heavyweight games like Fallout or similar)

    The quality is well above average when it comes to gameplay and design - the puns are all cat centered and range from funny-cringeworthy to funny - and to "thank god, no one sees me smirk at those puns...".

    I can fully recommend this game - .... to anyone that is fine with a very SHORT, SIMPLE and joyful game. For PC players wishing for a deep storyline, complex characters and progression - this is not for you. In terms of complexity - it is on a level with most mobile games.

    Cat Quest is an aesthetically pleasing but mechanically shallow game. You play as the Dragonblood, a cat with magical powers whose kind wasCat Quest is an aesthetically pleasing but mechanically shallow game. You play as the Dragonblood, a cat with magical powers whose kind was created to protect the world from, well, dragons, which you are particularly good at slaying. However, the core plot is that another evil cat, who commands dragons himself, has kidnapped your (nameless) sister, and so it is up to you and your blue cat spirit companion to save the world and your sister.

    Aesthetically, this game is really pretty; the overworld map that you spend most of the game navigating looks like an old school map, but with some elements that make it appear three-dimensional. You spend most of the game running around, fighting enemies, talking to people, and doing fetch-quests on this map, with the odd excursion into small “dungeons”, areas that just contain a bunch of enemies to kill and some treasure chests to loot. The dungeons are not as pretty as the world map is, but are okay (not great) aesthetically.

    All of the characters – the enemies and your fellow cats – are animated in cute little sprites, and all of them are pretty high quality (even if some of the enemies are a bit odd-looking, particularly the scrunched-up dragons). The animations are reasonable enough, and there’s seven spell effects in the game, though they’re repeated between you and the enemies, so there isn’t a ton of variety in that department.

    Story-wise, the game is very basic – in fact, the game even lampshades what a generic villain Drakoth is, though it becomes clear by the end that he’s actually not as generic as he was pretending to be. Still, he is still fairly generic, even if his motivation is a bit unusual, and his overly cackling dialogue isn’t terribly varied.

    Most of the game length is taken up by side quests, which are of similar quality to the main quest, but each tends to feature a different set of 2-3 characters. These quests are very simple – almost always fetchquests or “go here to kill some monsters” type quests – but the game wraps them up in a variety of odd dressings. Some of them are fourth wall breaking, some of them are silly, and some of them try to be touching, but all of them are fairly brief and most of them lean on the silly side of things.

    Which is the case with the writing in general, really; almost everything in the game is a cat pun, from the town names and locations to the names of your weapons and armor to character dialogue featuring characters incorporating meows and paws and whiskers and all sorts of cat things. There are some more serious moments in the game, where you find out about the distant backstory of the world, but it’s hard to take all that seriously given the silliness that surrounds it.

    Sadly, this means that the gameplay is what would ultimately need to hold this game up, but it just isn’t very good. Indeed, in the end, it is very much bland filler.

    The game is a basic isometric hack and slash game, even simpler than something like Bastion. You have basic attacks with your weapon, and you’ve got 4 spell slots for 7 spells. The spells are all quite simple and straightforward, and there’s really nothing all that clever about the gameplay – it’s all very straightforward, attacking enemies with your sword/magic then rolling away before they counterattack. There’s not much variety in terms of how the enemies fight, as they all just sort of move towards you and then attack around them in a red circle, with the more advanced enemies also casting spells that are either lines horizontally, vertically, or an X over them, or leaving spikes underfoot. You see all of this stuff pretty early, and ultimately, the enemies lack in much meaningful variety.

    While the game never quite bored me, it never really made me feel all that entertained, ultimately; it felt like a thing to do. I liked a few moments in it here and there, but it was all very predictable, and in the end, it failed to really touch me emotionally.

    Overall, this isn’t a bad game, but it isn’t a good one, either. It is really, really basic, and it props itself up with aesthetics and a gigantic pile of cat puns.

    There’s some people for whom that will be enough, but for me, I’ll mewve on.
