A couple of years back, a game called Battle Cats leapt onto Google Play and burned itself into the brains of thousands that played the Japanese version or English port. The game has undergone a few changes over the years, and was even absent from the Play Store for a period of time. This week it’s come back, and it’s a game you’ll really want to check out.

Battle Cats is a tower/castle defense game where the goal is to take out your enemy’s base before they demolish yours. It’s as simple as that, and you’ve probably played a similar game at some point. In order to destroy your enemy’s base, you have to call up your troops and send them into battle. As the name implies, your soldiers are cats, but they aren’t your typical felines…

The cat soldiers are a varied and weird bunch to say the least. You’ll have axe-toting troopers and gigantic cats with legs like stilts. Each cat has its own strengths and weaknesses, and when you level up and evolve, things start to get very, very interesting. The gameplay may be simple, but there’s a ton of variety and depth in Battle Cats.

Needless to say, you’ll want to check this one out , and it’s free to download on Google Play.
