Here’s our list of the best cat games on Switch and mobile:
Minkeo’s Night Market
Mineko’s Night Market describes itself as a narrative-driven, social simulation adventure that celebrates Japanese culture. It follows a young girl called Mineko, who moves to a small island with her dad. However, there are strange goings on happening on this island – and she soon finds herself in the middle of it all.
It’s an extremely laid back experience with a simply gameplay loop and wonderfully chill vibes. Whether you’re gathering resources, crafting items, and giving gifts to pals, or sneaking around to free cats from cages as you uncover the secrets of the island, it’s a great time for any fan of cozy games. Plus, there are heaps of kitties that roam around the island and follow you about – and, yes, you can pet them as much as you want! To find out more, be sure to check out our Mineko’s Night Market review.
Cat Cafe Manager
Cat Cafe Manager looks quaint, but you’ll be surprised at how deep this tabby-cat tycoon title goes. Having inherited your grandma’s cat cafe in the sleepy village of Caterwaul, it’s your job to rescue some kitties, pour some cappuccinos, and restore the establishment to its former heights. As to be expected, there are secrets lurking in Caterwaul, but if you’d just prefer a nice time making a mocha among your moggie mates, then you can do that too.
If you’re still to be convinced, why not check out our Cat Cafe Manager review to see how we got on serving coffees in Caterwaul.
Is the only thing stopping you from having a house full of cats your landlord? Well, don’t give up on your dreams of kitty collecting just yet, as Cat Game can deliver your dream of a house full of felines to the palm of your hand. In this casual cat collector, you build up a cat tower teeming with tabbies, shorthairs, and lil’ munchkins, all of which you can feed, play with, and even style thanks to Cat Game’s countless customisation options.
Cat Quest II
Probably the only game on this list where your fine feline is equipped with a sword, Cat Quest 2 is one for those who want to put the theory of nine lives to the test in combat. With more missions than the original Cat Quest, a new canine companion to accompany you on your quest across Felingard and function as a second-player character, and even more cat-puns than this article, it’s an epic quest worth taking for any whisker-loving warriors.
Cats & Soup
Cats! Soup! Yes! Cats & Soup is a sweet little mobile title that combines two of our favourite comforts for an idle game with charming designs by the spoonful. The aim of the game is pretty simple, collect cats, get those cats to make soup, and enjoy some tasty soup, but things get a little trickier when more and more shorthair chefs arrive ready to blend some veggies. This one is worth playing for the visuals alone, with an assortment of wonderfully illustrated kittens all waiting for you to sip on their delicious soup.
Cattails is essentially Stardew Valley with cats, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. You play as a feral cat, new to this particular cat community, and it’s up to you how you mark your territory. Whether you want to prove yourself as the feistiest feline in town with cat battles, or if you just want to settle down with a nice siamese and raise some kittens, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in this enigmatic RPG experience.
Piffle: A Cat Puzzle Adventure
If you need a new puzzle to put your little paws to work, Piffle: A Cat Puzzle Adventure is a vibrant match-3 style title with more than a whisker of whimsy. There are hundreds of levels, countless species of cats and kittens, and some deceptively tricky puzzling to keep you on your toes. Also, the cats wear sunglasses, and I personally think that should be enough to warrant your attention.
Fall into a beautifully dreamy, ethereal world with Calico, a wholesome, laid-back sim game populated with hundreds of fluffy friends. Your mission is to rebuild to town’s cat cafe and fill it with cute and cuddle creatures, including bears, foxes, puppies, and, of course, cats! Decorate, bake cakes, ride giant cats, and pet plenty of purrfect pals in this pastel paradise.
Catlateral Damage: Remeowstered
As any cat owner will know, kitties appear to have a taste for destruction. No matter how cute and fluffy they may seem, there’s something inside them that just wants to watch the world burn. In Catlateral Damage: Remeowstered, you can take the role of a cat filled with furry fury, as you knock plants of shelves, break plates, scratch up curtains, and show your virtual owner who’s boss.
