Summary: I love kitty cats. We have a pet cat. I adore cats and would do anything for my pet cat. This game, however, is horrible! As others have said, the graphics are choppy. This I can forgive as I'm not a "gamer"... however, the game itself is IMPOSSIBLE to "win" or be any good at. My kids can't play the games to win money to buy stuff for the cat, and if you don't buy the stuff (food, litter, flea spray) you get reprimanded and punished!
Summary: My brother-in-law bought this for my daughter. She seems to enjoy playing it, but it is impossible to keep this cat happy. I wanted to help her out with my more advanced game playing skills so one night after she was in bed, I spent an HOUR trying to get enough points to keep the cat adequately fed, keep the fleas off, and the litter box scooped. The games are very difficult for an ADULT and I could not keep the cat happy.
Summary: This game is exellent for kids! I have little cousins that play this all the time and can't get enough of this Catastic game! If you are allegeric to cats or just plainly don't want one (They are alot of work anyways!) Then get your relatives, children, or friends this game! This game offers realist cares of a cat that would feel like you have one. The game offers many mini-games for young children to play as they could select how hard- or how easy it is.
The cat in this game is more needy than a real cat!

Summary: This game is terrible and so are the graphics. I bought it because I wanted a game to take care of a cat, but the cat in this game has to be taken care of more than a real cat would! You pretty much have to constantly be doing something to this cat 24-7 or else you get reprimanded. Also the accessories, other cats, and needs (like food) are way too expensive for what you can earn playing the minigames.
Summary: We purchased this game on a whim for my 4 year old. This was a huge mistake. Not only could my daughter not play any part of the game by herself, we the adults had trouble with the small screen buttons, cheap jumpy graphics, boring activities and games. I'm hoping she'll soon forget about it so that I may trade it in for something better.
Summary: This game was impossible for my 4 and 6 year old daughters to play. It takes a very high level of control just to click buttons on the interface screen. The interface buttons are also placed too close together so sometimes when you want to look at the status of your cat you instead end up pressing the button to discipline the cat by spraying it with water.
Summary: Purr Pals can best be described as a virtual pet simulator for feline lovers. It does a decent job of this by mixing both the fun and responsibilities of caring for a kitten, and could be used as an "edutainment" tool for teaching children what's involved in being a pet owner. After selecting a breed and customizing various attributes, including naming the virtual kitty, the player must monitor the kitten's needs, such as love, food, play, etc., and respond accordingly.
