Funny sounds, perfect soundtrack, neat graphics, lots of levels
The Battle Cats for Android is a light-hearted game that puts you up against an equally sized army of dogs, as both you and your opponent scramble to put together a strong enough force to take out the other team.
The controls in this game are incredibly simple, and the gameplay is straightforward as can be. Despite the simplicity, there is a lot of fun to be had, and for plenty of reasons. In this game, you will be given a tower that you must defend, but at the same time there is a tower on the other side of the screen that you must try to destroy. Over time, you will gain income that can be spent on spawning different cat warriors into the game.
As you progress through the game, you will unlock more cats to choose from, each of which will have their unique stats and abilities. To defeat the other team (comprised of puppies), you will need to carefully manage your income, and choose which troop to upgrade. On top of the different troop types, you will also be able to upgrade each troop multiple times in each round, adding more choices to make with your money. Some of the cat troop upgrades add new zany cosmetic details, which are often pretty chuckle-worthy.
The sounds in this game, especially the background soundtracks, are pretty awesome, and the graphics, whilst cartoonish, aren't anything to complain about. There is also a bit of a story to follow with this game, although it doesn't have much depth to it.
The Battle Cats is free to play, but there are in-app purchases that add more content to the game.
