No cat can survive the lava caves. Except one: LavaCat!

"This is a very fun game which follows along a similar vein to classic Playstation titles such as Rayman and Pandemonium..."

"(LavaCat) definitely requires patience and perseverance. However, with 19 levels to play through, you’ll be entertained for hours."

"(In LavaCat), time control is the crown jewel, and it is a compelling feature."

LavaCat stars Lucky, a kitten who must rise from caves full of dangers — including falling rocks, flaming lava balls, lava fish and mini volcanoes — if he is to be reunited with his family. To survive, Lucky needs to summon SpiritCat and become LavaCat, a supercat that can withstand lava and paw aside whatever obstacles lie in his path.

LavaCat is an action game that combines agility and strategy. Each level requires perfect timing when sprinting or jumping and accurate decision making on how to get treats. Power-ups include Pajamas that are immune to lava, Big Paws that deflect falling rocks and a Supercape that defies gravity, allowing Lucky to soar through the air.

The game was sort of boring, and the graphics were weird. It looked like the developers spent way too much time making the cat look nice (even though they failed a little even on that) and the backgrounds looked messy and sloppy (not to mention pixelated). The time control glitches up a lot, but it's a unique idea. The jumps are also messed up too. It takes far too long for the cat to land from a jump, and often results in falling in lava. The overall motion of the game is quite laggy and slow (at least on my iPhone). I do think the concept of the game is a good idea, and could be a much better game if more effort and detail (not to mention glitch fixes) were put into it.

A real bummer.


(Full disclosure: I am playing on an iPod 4th gen while the game is "optimized for 5th gen". However, I will note that i have not had problems running any other app.)

Lavacat's UI is just too slow and glitchy for me to get any enjoyment of of it. The running mini game will occasionally work yet still be too laggy and unsmooth to be much fun. Meanwhile, just about anything else makes the game crash. The decent design and soundtrack are just totally wasted when the game can't be played! So here's to hoping an update comes around soon so the game can actually be played. It certainly looks like a fun little runner when it works properly.



First off, for a game that declares "control time" the only thing that time is really used for is to act as extra lives in a sense. It doesn't even effect the timer, which chugs on regardless.

Graphics are par for the course of games out there, which translates to poor compared to most things done by game companies. 2D would likely have been a better medium for it. Animations feel tacked on.

Gameplay is not the best, I feel like I'm playing a less responsive version of MuffinKnight. Puzzles are challenging only in the "you can't see everything" sense. Mini games aren't bad, but are nearly killed by the mediocre controls.
