‘Kitty Letter’: The creators of ‘Exploding Kittens’ launch a new free mobile game that mixes ‘Pasapalabra’ and ‘Clash Royale’
The Oatmeal is the creator of not only a fabulous webcomic whose international fame has led it to be released in multiple languages (including ours), but a few games also of considerable success. The last one is ‘Throw Throw Burrito’, but the most famous of all is the hilarious card game ‘Exploding Kittens‘. A game as simple as it is addictive, ideal for quick games and brimming with the imagery of absurd cats own of its author.
Now The Oatmeal has decided to make a gift to its followers, and has developed together with Matt Wood (creator of the cat exploration title ‘Little Kity, Big City’, still in the oven) a free mobile game that they rate as “Words with enemies”, and that works as a kind of mix of ‘Scrabble’ and games derived from the style tower defense as ‘Clash Royale’.
How to throw cats with words
The objective is very simple: defend your area with squads of cats that They are sent to possible certain death by forming words from the five letters given by the game.. These five letters have to be arranged in one or more words of more than two characters, with an extra if you can use all five. Of course, for now you will have to manage to get those words to be in English.
The game has several modes that allow you to express the simple initial concept. Of course, in the single-player side there is an Arcade Mode of infinite duration and in which you have to endure as long as possible the endless hordes of cats that try to kill you. More original is the Story Mode, especially if you are a fan of The Oatmeal: 13 unlockable chapters full of mini-games and tests based on the base mechanics, and which is essentially a long interactive webcomic by the author.
The multiplayer is, perhaps, the true essence of the game. You can play games against a friend in rooms created for this purpose or against a stranger through the internet. We have tried this last option and of course we have received a couple of beatings from strangers whose native language is possibly English – the connection has been fast and without problems.
Leaving aside the inconvenience of the language – which may not be so for you at all if you have a fairly large vocabulary or if your opponent has the same level – ‘Kitty Letter’ is a fast and frantic game, ideal for instant games. The best thing about the proposal (apart from its free, obviously), is the great Story Mode, pure oatmealesque extravagance with an overdose of inflated cats and psychotic gestures.
