Cats Make You Smarter!
Cats Make You Smarter! is a splendid memory puzzle game with cats and various twists.
How to Play
The goal of the game is to find and match all identical cats on the board. The tiles are flipped over so you can only see their backs.
Depending on the difficulty level you can flip 2, 3, 4 or 5 tiles at a time.
If the revealed cats are identical, the tiles are claimed and your score increases. Otherwise, the tiles are flipped back and you can continue flipping up other tiles.
Try to remember each cat’s position so you do not run out of time while finding them again.
When you claim all the tiles on a board, you may get bonus points if you have been quick enough and haven’t made too many attempts while matching the tiles.
You will then move on to a larger board, so your memory is challenged even more!
Select flipped or claimed tiles to reveal a full screen image with the cat’s name, their favorite quote and a special information (i.e. Patience, Monster or Psychedelic Mood status.)
Cats Make Your Smarter! offers 5 game modes which all share basic game concepts and also have their own special variations and twists.
#1: Sleepy Kitty
Other than the time limit, you are free to flip the tiles as many times as you need, so this is the classic memory game you might be familiar with already.
This game mode is ideal for beginners, or when you are a bit tired.
#2: Good Luck, Jerry!
Here each cat has a number of Patience points. When the flipped tiles are not matched, each flipped tile loses a Patience point.
When a flipped tile has only 1 Patience point left, it gains a red border as a reminder for you to be cautious with it. Once a tile runs out of its Patience, it becomes a Trouble tile. A Trouble tile’s background is all red. If you flip such a tile, and it’s not a match, each of the flipped Trouble tiles will move randomly, pushing tiles around the board.
As the tiles move around it will be harder to remember each tile’s position, so try not to annoy the cats – although annoyed cats give you better score!
#3: Jones of Nostromo
In this game mode the cats have less Patience points.
Moreover, one of the cats – the Monster – starts with 0 Patience points. And, if this weren’t dangerous enough already, as a special rule, you can only match the Monster tiles last, after you have matched all others on the board.
A Monster tile behaves like a Trouble tile, so avoid them!
#4: Nyan-Nyan Ninja
This game mode tests your reflexes as well as your ability to recognize patterns.
The tiles are laid out on the board without being flipped, but you only have a very limited time to select the identical tiles.
You get some extra time after each successful match, but if you accidentally select cats which aren’t identical, your time gets halved immediately, so be very careful!
#5: Mr. Bigglesworth Sends His Regards
The cats are having a party and feeling a bit psychedelic, thus finding matches will be a lot harder in this happy chaos.
Each cat have 0 Patience points, so if you cannot match them, they will wander around just like as if they were Trouble tiles.
As cats are so impatient here but also very curious, each flipped tile’s immediate neighbors will also be flipped – for free – which allows you to memorize up to 9 tiles for each flipped tile.
The cats also choose a randomly picked color for themselves each time you flip them, so don’t be fooled by this trickery: try to ignore the colors and concentrate only on the cats!
