Maow, gat, muca, köttur, neko, as well as countless other names are used throughout the world to describe what some of us call these fur-ball critters. Or simple put “cats”. These fur shedding, eating machines, often plump and adorable tend to do only three things: use the litter box, sleep, and of course eat. It’s this sleeping and eating concept that makes up DreamCat.
DreamCat places you in a dream world of a plump, sleeping cat surrounded by burgers that it wants to eat. To eat these burgers you must jump and dash-attack your cat as far as you can in this randomly generated platform to platform endless runner. Like other games of this genre if you run into an obstacle or miss a platform its Game Over. In the case of DreamCat, if you have a younger gamer you don’t have to worry about the portrayal of animal abuse since the cat never dies and instead wakes up. This is a cute child-friendly approach for “Game Over”.
As far as gameplay goes, DreamCat doesn’t offer anything novel. With that said, what makes DreamCat worthwhile is its quirky sense of humor. As I’ve already said you’re a plump lil’ cat that’s dreaming about eating hamburgers! If that’s not cute enough the rest of the world also mimics our interpretation of a cat’s dream including a psychedelic cat-faced sun and fish shaped clouds. To top it all off are the GameCenter achievements that are as humorous to read as they are to earn.
The Bottom Line: 6.5/10 (Fair)
DreamCat’s amusing take on a cat’s dream is easily the highlight of an otherwise generic endless runner. If you’re a cat lover or have a young one sitting in your back car seat this surely entertain.
P.S. Yes I do like cats
