Sometimes there’s nothing like an endless runner to while away the minutes spent waiting for various events. The internet, being approximately 50% devoted to cats in some form, appreciates a good feline presence, as well. Put the two together, and a recipe for fun is born. Parkour Cat, by Jose Anzola, brings these elements to two mobile platforms: Android and iOS.
Players control their masked meowers by tapping on their screens to make them leap over gaps and obstacles. A fall will result in a life being lost, but never fear, because the cats in Parkour Cat have 9 lives. With a number of different characters to choose from, the game also offers a variety of levels and challenges. In addition, each feline has their own strengths and weaknesses to try and exploit for the player’s benefit. As an added challenge, the further a player is able to get in a level, the higher the speed of travel, thereby increasing the acuity of reflexes needed. For those who master the game, there are power-ups that can be purchased by the in-game coins (earned by getting high scores). Player leaderboards encourage competition from players all over the world.
