Cats

Another game for you to try, this one written entirely in Flash. Its presentation and gameplay are both simple and elegant. And the cats are so darn cute.

The control in this game is very simple: just mouse over a cat to change its behavior. If a cat is walking, it will sit down. If sitting, it will begin walking. The object is to make all cats copy what the currently highlighted cat is doing.

Cats was created by Ferry Halim and they live on Ferry's Orisinal games site with so many other beautiful games. It's a treasure trove for the casual game lover, and especially for kids. It is clear that Ferry puts his heart into the games he makes, and does so with exceptionally talented and loving care.

It's really stylish and elegant, but the gameplay doesn't seem very interesting -- it's very slow and easy, at least for the first 10-15 minutes or so, and I didn't feel compelled to play beyond that.

It seems to be a bit about luck (to determine how quickly your score goes up) -- the skill required is pretty low, and there's no meaningful strategies that I can tell (save maybe "try to get all the cats in a row"). Fun broadway-ish music though, and really cute/elegant -- I swear there's some interesting games possible, relying on cats' fickleness.

Yes, I agree with you Nils. Ferry Halim is an extraordinary artist/Flash games developer and his work is really outstanding. And yet, his games are generally based on a single gameplay element that makes each one unique and fun to play, but that single element can become tiresome, like you mentioned, if there is no variety to sustain interest. The most compelling element in all his games has to be the high score list that keeps people coming back for more. That is one element in games, the importance of which should never be underestimated.

And yet I love each and every game he creates for the artistic magic it contains. He really does amazing work.

The idea of the game is so boring but the way they make those cats so cute and elegant-walking sucks you into the game. Its cute and fun and a big time waster :)

This is a really cute game. It was easy to play. However, I bored of it before I ever came close to losing. It felt like I could go on and on and on forever....and the game just wasn't interesting enough to keep me playing that long (even though it really is very cute!)
