How is this getting such good ratings?
I don’t get it. There appear to be two games, the mouse and the laser pointer. The mouse side doesn’t do anything at all except try to rack up additional $$ for no benefit. I never intentionally agreed to any in-game purchase, but got a $2.99 cent charge the other day. So I figured, if I am paying $3 I should at least see what I got for it. But there’s nothing. You touch the screen one time and the mouse gets slammed in the stupid mouse trap and to get it out you have to pay more money. $3 per 1/3 of a second of game is not exactly a good value. I tried clinking on the “restore previous purchase” button but the stupid cat head just spins and spins and spins saying “loading” for eternity. I’ve never seen such a ridiculous waste of money before in my life. I got absolutely nothing for a $3 purchase that a child at a family gathering apparently made when I wasn’t looking. Why do people like this. If the game lasts less than a second, it can’t occupy a cat for long… Perhaps I just got a defective copy? I don’t know, but I sure want my money back.
My tablet belongs to the cats, now.
Honestly, I got this game for myself on a whim. It was cute, it was free, I figured why not get a time waster, and it worked pretty well for that. But then I actually started letting my friends cats play with it and, oh man, it's so much better.
They all start with a few minutes of staring at the screen and following the movement with their eyes, but after that they go into attack mode. The most popular one is the mouse, no surprise there. The movement just drives my cats crazy! I put it on the floor tonight to see what would happen, and it ended with all three of them circled around my ipad, taking turns attacking the mouse.
I loved his game, my cats love it more. It may seem simple or silly but it's a delightful app.
Though, to the developers; if you could come up with some more secure locking features, that'd be fantastic. They've managed to figure out how to pause, change levels, and open Pinterest. ...come to think of it, that's probably how I ended up with the full version as I don't remember buying it. Ah well, they love it. 5/5
(I think I'll give my tablet back now. Shadow has been circling and meowing at me since I took his game away to write this)
I got this app for my cats, obviously. Needless to say one of my cats loved to watch it, the other loves to smack the laser lol.
As other posters have said, once you open the app it will have a pop-up to purchase something for $1.99 and asks you to put in your apple password. I guess the others were to unobservant to realize and just sped through and ended up buying it. All you have to do is hit cancel and it closes the pop-up without charging you and you can get on with your game.
My cats really enjoyed the laser, which is great cause my arm gets tired playing with our real laser for hours. (:
