    Whether you’re a cat lover or not, Cat Quest creates an ideal blend of charming graphics and traditional hack-and-slash gameplay. Despite holding back on a few things, the satisfying combat and convenient loot system show that The Gentlebros have a tremendous understanding of RPG mechanics and – to let the cat out of the bag – it could pawsibly be my favourite game of the year.

    Cat Quest is a simple and charming RPG that still manages to be deeper than it first appears and is a nice bite-size adventure compared to the many all-consuming ones you can already find on your Nintendo Switch.

    Cat Quest is a lightweight action-RPG that doesn't demand a lot of your precious time yet provides a deep enough experience to scratch a much deeper itch. It's a purrfect addition to the Nintendo Switch lineup.

    Cat Quest is a game that stays with the roots of the ARPG genre and makes fun of it in every aspect. A brave and rogue game that is really fun and nice due to its simplicity and duration.

    As polished as Cat Quest may be, it does have a few downsides. The strong focus on cats and endless supply of cat puns is obviously not a world everyone will want to immerse themselves in – especially if you are a dog lover. However, if you are willing to overlook this and the basic design, what is on offer is a functional role-playing game that can be played for short or longer periods of time by players of all ages and cat lovers alike.

    This is a game that is aware of its goofy setup and relishes in a sea of cat puns and insanity. It’s not a terribly long game - I rolled credits within a few hours - but it’s a fun romp with a straightforward and entertaining action RPG style. Cat Quest is a game that likely won’t stick with me for too long, but it was a pleasant time basking in cat gags and beating up on foes with swords and magic.
  7. 60
    It remains true that Cat Quest is a hugely reductive game that strips the RPG formula to its very roots, and that lack of depth becomes tiresome towards the end. I'm glad that this is not a game that outstays its welcome, but at the same time it's not a game I'll remember, beyond that adorable skipping run of my adorable little furrball.

    I loved this game. Great little soundtrack, easily playable, enough secrets to keep it interesting, and a super easy battle system. BattleI loved this game. Great little soundtrack, easily playable, enough secrets to keep it interesting, and a super easy battle system. Battle plays like a mildly retarded Secret of Mana, and always puts that next level within reach, so it's easy to keep playing. I was also pretty thrilled with the free DLC, which increased the games playability pretty significantly. It moved the game from a 9 to a 10 for me. Absolutely buy this game if you're fan of the genre. Expand

    This is surprising gem of a game, and honestly, I'm enjoying it more than many of the AAA $60 games on the Switch.

    I love how you can
    This is surprising gem of a game, and honestly, I'm enjoying it more than many of the AAA $60 games on the Switch.

    I love how you can customize your character through gear to be more of a mage or more of a fighter. And the spells are well-implemented and fun to use.

    I can't really think of a negative besides the length, but for the price it's still a great deal.

    I bought it on PS4 after this because I wanted to get a diamond (?) trophy and this game was so much fun I didn’t mind starting over. Do II bought it on PS4 after this because I wanted to get a diamond (?) trophy and this game was so much fun I didn’t mind starting over. Do I need to say more? Okay, it could be bigger. I’ve had some minor performance stutters in handheld, but it’s not that big of a deal, the design is great, the cat wordplay is cute and everything looks adorable. Even the gameplay is rather fun. It’s also cheap so I highly recommend it. 99% you’ll get your moneys worth. Expand

The attack mechanic seems cool but soon becomes meh. It has nice characters that seem memorable... well at least the ones that have custom sprites. Spells are pretty awesome and only one seems to suck (the healing spell although it might only be because I haven't upgraded it that much). Overall the game is kinda short I managed to beat it in like a day. Post game would 100% be nice. Overall if need a game to play I would totally recommend this but it could have been a bit better.
