Cat Quest (Series) Review
Posted: 5 months ago, last updated 4 weeks ago.
The war between the cats of Felingard and dogs of Lumpus brings two kings together who journey to reclaim their thrones. As you progress you can switch characters to suit the current challenge. Each feline or canine hero uses a blade, staff or wand during combat. Magicians can pick from 16 spells and all characters can upgrade abilities and weapons using coins and experience orbs that are awarded from quests. You are able to unlock new cosmetics to customize your cat or dog.
It's a relatively light introduction to the role-play and adventure genre. Along with simple controls and cute characters, the progression is steady while still offering a challenge to more experienced players.
But more than a watered-down version of older games, Cat Quest has a real identity of its own. The cat and dog puns abound (sorry), but it really works well. It doesn't take itself overly seriously which makes it more appealing than some of the Mario and Luigi adventure games. But it takes the role-play mechanics very seriously and turns out a finely tuned experience that older-focused games would be proud of.

Rated PEGI 7 for Mild Violence. Combat is in real-time and against various fantasy enemies, using a sword combos or magic spells to do damage. Enemies flicker when hit and when their health is depleted, they fade away. When the player’s character is defeated, he falls to the ground until the other character revives him. All violence is mild, but the action can get frenetic. There are several boss battles present, some of which are against intimidating or menacing characters.
ESRB 10+ for Fantasy Violence.
Rated 9+ on the iOS app store.
Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 8-13 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. Although the visuals look appealing to very young players, there is a considerable challenge here. Once children are able to strategise and willing to repeatedly lose to progress this becomes much more fun.
