Capsule Review: Cat Poke HD

A short (half an hour or so, depending on how quickly you figure out some of the more obtuse puzzles) and simple point-and-click adventure masquerading as a puzzle platformer. You must use all the tools at your disposal - various kinds of movement and light platforming as well as inventory-based puzzles - to poke each of the nine cats in the house. The control scheme is awkward and some of the puzzles require major intuitive leaps, but it’s quick and cute.

This is a remake of the original Cat Poke for mobile, with a different art style and some control/UX improvements. The more intuitive controls and better telegraphing of certain abilities/options makes this the better version.

I Stopped Playing When: I finished the game.

Docprof's Rating:

Two Stars: Meh. The game has some merit - it probably held my attention for at least an hour or I came back to it for more than one play session. But there wasn't enough draw for me to stick with it for the long haul.
