The game mechanics in The Battle Cats are pretty simple. You have your base located to the right of a small 2D setting, while your enemy is to the left. Every second, both sides will receive money they can use for two things: to improve the base or to buy troops. Your aim is to try to destroy the enemy base with the army that you create (out of cats of all sorts).
Between levels, you can unlock tons of new cats thanks to the experience you’ve gained. New cats are absolutely necessary since the first cats only have basic skills. Some of the special cats, though, can do devastating attacks on your enemies.
The Battle Cats is a strategy game with very simple game mechanics and simple-but-cute graphics. In addition, the game offers loads of one-player levels as well as scoreboards and a good handful of achievements.
