App Review: Grumpy Cat’s Worst Game Ever

 
Grumpy Cat's Worst Game Ever button
We have been playing Grumpy Cat’s Worst Game Ever for a while now, and we can confidently report that this is not the worst game ever. In fact, it’s a pretty fun game, if you like things to be fast paced and you don’t mind being insulted by a cat when you fail.

Grumpy Cat demands speed

Daredevil Grumpy Cat
One of the Grumpy Cats you have
to collect. This one is a daredevil.
This is not a game you play if you just want to do something slow and relaxed. Grumpy Cat demands speed, and she wants you to go faster all the time.

Basically, there are four different “worlds,” each with a collection of Grumpy Cats (Burglar Grumpy Cat, Rocker Grumpy Cat, etc.) in them. Your job is to play mini-games to earn coins, which you then spend in a claw machine to get prizes. The prizes are the different Grumpy Cats, and you have to collect all of them.

Trust me, it's not complicated once you start playing.

Each world has different mini-games, and you do not get to choose which games you play. The game comes up, instructions appear on screen, and you have only a few seconds to (a) figure out what you’re supposed to do and (b) do it successfully. And then the next game comes, and the next, and the next. Trust me when I say it is not easy to keep up. And just in case you think it is easy, after each round, Grumpy wants you to go faster, faster, faster. Honestly, old SoLT is so slow, she found this stressful at times. But so much fun too!

Grumpy Cat, This is fun, too bad you're awful meme
Grumpy always has something
to say about your
performance.

The mini-games

Of course this mental challenge is only fun if the mini-games are fun, and these games are. Old SoLT particularly enjoys “clean the plate” because she is rather good at it (and it’s so simple), but you also have to reel in a fish, get Grumpy across a croc-infested river, crack a safe, hit a baseball, drive a racecar…. Once you start playing, it really is hard to stop even when you’re failing miserably, because you always think, “This time I’ll get it.”

Good luck.

Here is a little video of old SoLT playing, with some much-needed help from Real Cat Webster:

Our verdict

Grumpy Cat, Frustrating meme
And then there's this. She
shows no mercy.
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, we think Grumpy Cat’s Worst Game Ever is a really fun game. There is a good variety of mini-games, and it is a mental challenge to keep up. Plus, Grumpy Cat. Who doesn’t love her?

This game is available for Android and iOS devices. We played on an iPad and experienced smooth gameplay (except for old SoLT’s many, many failures). The game is free to download, but you can make in-app purchases. We have played for a few weeks now without making any purchases, and don’t feel that we need to make any to advance in the game (although it might be nice to take the ads away).


Highly recommended!



A note on the "Paws Up" system: Miss C gives either one or two paws up. One paw is for a good app; two paws is for a great app. She never gives three or four paws because that would require her to lie on her back...and Miss C does not do that!
