WonderCat Adventures by MovieWriterPro is a unique entry in the side-scroller category of the App Store. In this game, you control a cat with some pretty interesting abilities as he makes his way through level after level. You’ll have to dodge or jump over obstacles on your journey through a futuristic space-age landscape, while trying to collect as many gems as you can.
With beautifully rendered graphics, and great sound effects to get you in the mood, you’ll find yourself saying just one more game over and over again. The WonderCat Adventures app is available for purchase from the App Store at a cost of $2.99 and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
The best side-scrollers introduce new elements gradually as you progress through the game so that you’re always facing a new and interesting challenge. This might mean you have to face more objects coming at you, increasingly more difficult jumps from one platform to the next or different landscapes altogether with their own unique challenges. WonderCat includes all these things. It takes a bit of getting used to, and while having to start from the beginning of any level you fail at can be frustrating, it’s also a lot more rewarding when you complete it.
The good thing about this game is that the initial fee you have to pay to get the app, unlocks all of its features – there are no other hidden costs and you won’t have to put up with any ads. The music does get a little monotonous after a while, and it would improve the game considerably if the developer was to change it up once in a while. I actually enjoyed the game much better when I shut the music off altogether and just left the sound effects on which are quite good. The WonderCat Adventures app will require 60.5 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How to Play
The gameplay in WonderCat is a lot of fun you control a little black cat inside a large robotic space suit that gives the cat the ability to jump considerable distances, which is a good thing because the terrain is full of perils that your little cat has to jump over to keep moving forward. As he moves through each level the object is to collect as many of the blue gems as you can along the way. The world you have to navigate is quite surreal with floating blue stars, flying fireballs, rocky outcrops and the deep water below you. Once you get to the end of the cave there’s always another level awaiting you with 55 of them in all.
The controls are pretty simple to figure out but not easy to master. If you tap on the screen once your cat will perform a short little jump, but if you move your finger in rapid circles, he can jump much higher for the more difficult challenges. It takes a little getting used to, but it grows on you.
