There’s a huge fascination with cats online right now. I don’t entirely understand it myself, but people find cat memes hypnotic. With that said, what happens when you take a super popular genre and combine it with cats? You get MeowMix. MeowMix is a Tetris style game but instead of using blocks, you use stacks of colored cats to form matches. Now if that doesn’t sound a bit awesome and weird, I don’t know what does.
MeowMix is a rather interesting game that does seem like Tetris, but injects its own gameplay elements into the mix to make this more than just a Tetris clone with cats. You do drop cats down from the top like Tetris, but instead of trying to make lines to break, you match colored cats. Same colored cats of 3+ can be taped on to make them disappear to make room for more cats. Also unlike Tetris, if your cat collection reaches the top, it’s not an automatic game over. Instead, they give you an extra way to earn points by allowing you to continue matching same colored cats of 3+. After all matches have been exhausted, then it’s game over.
It’s a pretty interesting take on the whole Tetris/match-3 genre that works well. It also helps that the graphics in the game are mind numbingly cute. I mean what’s cuter than a screen full of animated cats? Overall, MeowMix is pretty fun. It’s a good mix of gameplay and graphics that will appeal to gamers of all ages.
