10 best cat games on Android for both people and cats
Games for cats are usually just things floating around on the screen for them to chase. We recommend turning out lights and using devices with larger screens to help entice the cat until they get what they’re supposed to do. We’ll also let you know when a game is specifically for cats or for people. They are the original and arguably the most popular cat games right now. In any case, here are the best cat games for Android for both people and cats.
We also recommend our best animal games list if you want something a little less specific to cats.
Cat Alone 1 and 2 (FOR CATS)
Cat Alone 1 and 2 are cat toy games specifically for cats. It works like you expect. The game floats various objects across the screen to entice your cat. That includes a laser pointer type thing, a spider, feathers, a mouse, and a couple of others. It’s otherwise not too complicated. You pick the mode, set the device down, and let your cat go nuts. Cat Alone 2 is the latest in the series, obviously, and it has six game modes for your cat. It’s also entirely free with no in-app purchases. There are ads, though, but they’re not too bad. It’s really up to your cat, but Google Play reviews seem to indicate that cats like this one. The video below looks broken but we assure you, it’s actually a demo of the app.
Cat Playground (FOR CATS)
Cat Playground is another decent game for cats. This one features a couple of different game modes. Cats can chase animals moving across the screen. Additionally, there is a laser pointer mode and a whack-a-mole mode. That’s basically all the game does. However, many people have claimed that their cats love it. It also requires no permissions and it has no advertising. You get the whole thing for a $1.99. That may be a bit pricey but we’re not going to complain because this genre is very thin. It’s an excellent game for cats.
Friskies Cat Fishing 2 (FOR CATS)
Friskies Cat Fishing 2 is a fishing game for cats. It’s a really simple game. Fish surface on the water and then submerge when tapped. It keeps track of your cats score and each round lasts about half a minute. The game also includes three levels with one, two, and three fish at a time in case your cat needs a bigger challenge. It’s entirely free with no in-app purchases or ads. However, it’s also a really old game. It worked on our test devices, but it may not work on yours. Friskies Jitter Bug is also available if your cat prefers bugs over fish. Your mileage may vary with this one because it is so old.
Mouse (FOR CATS)
Yes, this is the classic mouse game. It’s a super simple game. It is literally just a mouse moving around on a white background. The mouse occasionally eats cheese or falls asleep, but that’s basically all it does. That’s it, folks! The app is entirely free with no in-app purchases. There are ads, but a developer has to eat, right? About the only complaint we have is that the mice sounds are a little grating on the nerves. However, most Google Play reviewers seem okay with it for the sake of their cats unless the sound just makes their cats angry. In any case, it’s not bad.
YouTube (FOR CATS)
Price: Free / $12.99 per month
YouTube is actually amazing for cats. We’re not talking about just cat videos for people, but for cats as well. There are a ton of videos out there of mice running around on the screen, animal sounds, and other little things for your cat to play with. Who knew, right? In any case, it takes some searching to find the really good stuff, but it’s all there somewhere. YouTube is a free service with ads. You can go with YouTube Premium for $12.99 per month if you want to remove ads and add some extra features. However, for the sake of cat games, you don’t really need it.
Price: Free to play
Bubbu is a Tamagotchi-style cat game. Players get a cat named Bubbu and take care of it. You can feed, bathe, play with, and dress up your cat in a bunch of different ways. There is also a house designer element along with 30 mini-games to play with your Bubbu. It’s a fairly simple game and it’s kid-friendly. However, the game does have more than a few ads and the free-to-play elements can be a little aggressive for some folks. In any case, this is a nice little virtual pet game featuring a cat and one of the best in its genre.
Price: Free / Up to $2.49
Nameless Cat is a platformer-adventure game. You play as a nameless cat who is trying to find its way through a strange world. You have various powers to help you progress but you must avoid obstacles and overcome puzzles in order to keep going. The game contains over 40 levels across three chapters, complete with boss battles. The game isn’t too long. You can beat it usually in under 20 hours, but it’s definitely one of the better cat games.
Neko Atsume (FOR HUMANS)
Price: Free / Up to $3.36
Neko Atsume is a delightfully adorable cat game for people. You basically attract cats with food, collect them, and then keep them happy. The challenge comes from obtaining the right items to entice the various felines. You also have a cat book to fill. It’s definitely more of a relaxing time killer than anything that requires your full attention. However, sometimes it’s okay to chill out while playing video games. The base game is completely free with some optional expansions available as in-app purchases. The developer also gives you wallpapers for your phone in the game. We like those little touches.
Super Cat Tales 2
Price: Free / Up to $5.99
Super Cat Tales 2 is an adventure platformer with a lot of fun game elements. It’s reminiscent of games like Super Mario World where you complete levels to proceed across a map. The game contains over 100 levels, various cats to unlock, villages to check out, items to find, and secrets to uncover. The game play elements are surprisingly good and there is very little to complain about unless you’re not a fan of platformer games. It even has achievements and leaderboards. This one is free if you use Google Play Pass.
Talking Tom games (FOR HUMANS)
Price: Free to play
My Talking Tom games are some of the most popular cat games for people. The original Talking Tom Cat was a simple, goofy simulator. The series quickly evolved into something much more than that. My Talking Tom 1 and 2 are full simulation games while My Talking Angela is also delightful. These games are kid friendly, adorable, and people seem to really enjoy the Talking Tom game series. They are predominately freemium so be sure to be careful if you let your kids play. Like Neko Atsume, these games are relaxing and not very stressful to play. Hit the button to see all of the Talking Tom games!
