Kitten Sanctuary review (iOS / Universal)April 2, 2012
♫ “We missed you, hissed the lovecats
We missed you – oh you’re brilliant”
10 word description: Rescue kittens from aliens; keep them safe in your sanctuaries.
10 word review: Cutest mix of match-3 and touch-screen pet care ever.
You will like this if you enjoy: Match-3 games combined with keeping kittens happy.
The good news: The match-3 gameplay is varied, fun and very pretty with some great visual effects. The theme of rescuing kittens and keeping them happy, while initially sounding way too cute and cuddly, is implemented well with the match-3 games and provides several additional levels of fun, humour and addictive gameplay. Overall it’s very polished and entertaining.
The bad news: No IAPs. Oh, hang on a minute … that’s GOOD NEWS!
Arcadelife verdict: One of my favourite iPad games at the moment, a surprisingly addictive blend of match-3 (which I thought I’d really had enough of) and keeping virtual kittens happy (which never really appealed to me). It looks and sounds very good, the match-3 challenges have enough sparkle and variety to even keep me entertained, and the in-game shop (for items to amuse the kitties) has no IAPs at all – excellent!
There’s a free lite version if you want to try before you buy.
