Summary: I really enjoyed this adventure HOG. It doesn't bring anything new to the genre in terms of gameplay but it's a nice storyline and good fun. I did find there seemed to be a lot of backwards and forwards - it's almost as though you deliberately could only do one or two things at once and they were as far away from each other as possible. However, it's not a huge game so it wasn't too problematic.
Summary: I really liked this game. The graphics were not that bad at all, there was a decent gamelenght and a nice bonuscontent and extra gameplay. After placing every found kittenstatue you have to solve a puzzle, I especially liked the jigsawpuzzles! The HOG scenes were really beautiful. This is the type of HOG I like to play, I rate it 4 stars.
Summary: Well, yes, this is hardly five-star material for all the reasons mentioned: the graphics are fuzzy, the story’s a bit silly, the puzzles are tedious and repetitive, the backtracking can be to the point of ridiculous…but I love cats, I felt like playing a game with some in it, and it wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected. While it doesn’t set the world on fire, the gameplay pretty much follows HOG 101 rules, there were some cute easter egg type animations, and lots of cats.
Summary: I enjoyed Cats of Ulthar more than I expected to. At the beginning of the game, the girl gives you a little cat that acts as your Hint system. Besides showing you where objects are in hidden object scenes, the cat will point you in the right direction during the "adventure" part of the game -- a glowing golden cat's eye will appear at the exit you need to take.
Summary: Loved the demo. I thought this game was reminiscent of "Dire Grove". Good HOGs. One arachnophobic moment in the game, the upended box in the upstairs hallway has spiders underneath. From checking out the Walkthrough, there is a twist at the end of the story, which I won't reveal here. I was a bit disappointed with the twist -- I think it was a cop-out to make a dark storyline lighter. Hidden cats in most scenes, a total of 24 in the game. Many jigsaw puzzle-type games.
Summary: It's going to be hard to beat what pumpkin said earlier about this game-- hodgepodge is the correct word. I didn't really enjoy this and the demo was short. Cats are not my favorite thing either. It would be a good game in the SE if it were on sale. I just can't see paying a CE price for this one.
Summary: I really like cats, have three in fact and can't imagine a life without at least one...so I wanted to like this game, and I did! I don't have the time anymore to play many games, so thought this one was interesting, had fun mini-games, enough HOG scenes (not too many), nice graphics and a good story. Yes PersistantCat, a little confusing, but still if you are patient the characters start making sense. I did not buy this game, but think I'll wait for the SE.
Summary: DISCLAIMER: I just played the free trial. You arrive in a strange town and the first thing you see is a young boy only moments away from being burned at the stake. You take one look at him, and you feel that he is innocent of the charges against him. After meeting his sister, you are convinced. You vow to help prove his innocence. That is the storyline of this rather perplexing HOG game.
