Favourite App of January | Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector

Cat lovers of the world rejoice! There is an app in town which will fuel your feline addiction! If you are like me who would like to get a real life cat but can't at the moment, then you will L O V E this game.

Released in Japan on 20th October 2014, it has been downloaded more than 10 million times [Dec '15] and an English version of it was available on 20th October 2015.

The aim of the game is to basically collect cats. That is it. All you have to do is put down a bowl of food and some items into your "yard" and the cat's will come visiting. Everything is free but to buy items and food, you need silver or gold sardines, which are the games currency. It's not difficult to accumulate these though. When a cat leaves, it leaves you a gift of sardines.

At the time of writing, there are 49 cats to collect, 17 of which are classed as "rare". These kitties only appear when certain items are placed into the yard [I have yet to encounter one of these].

I like to think of this game as a sort of Tamagotchi-esque....but minus the inevitable death because if you don't put any food down, it just means no cats will be lured in.

How could you not love this game? Just loOK HOW CUTE THE KITTIES ARE!!

There is also an opportunity to expand your space into the adjacent room for 180 gold sardines, which will obviously attract ALL THE CATS.

Neko Atsume is available for free on both iPhones and Android.

Happy gaming everyone!

See you soon,
