Cats do all sorts of cool stuff. They sleep, they eat, they occasionally tolerate human contact, and they turn into furry little bombs to save their kittens (disclaimer: real cats do not do this). Bombcats has arrived on Android, and it was revamped just for us. On iOS this game built around in-app purchases, but on Android the "Special Edition" comes with a single up-front price.

What is Bombcats? Take Angry Birds, add a ton more gameplay mechanics, and also make them cats. There are seven different cats in the game, each with its own special ability. The game comes with 194 levels, which should keep you busy for a while. The levels alternate between multiple game types, as well.

Bombcats: Special Edition is $2.99 in Google Play. It has been re-balanced so you can get all the in-game currency you need just by playing. No up-sells. Neat, right?

    Yeah, "angry" cats. Not gonna pay for anymore angry animals. Enough!

    It looks like a rip off of Angry Birds and iBlast Moki.

    Unfortunately, I don't like this type of game at all... I still applaud them for removing the IAPs.

    Don't dismiss this game. This is by RadianGames, who make several stellar, underappreciated, underdownloaded games. I hope Android Police takes a look a their other stuff, they're putting out some really great stuff.

      We're going to do a full review of this one too.

    This is actually quite a great game. It has different modes and mechanics, fun power-ups and customisation upgrades for the cats and even though they cost in-game coins, you're not forced to farm for them, because you have about as much cash as you need to purchase them as you unlock them. Some levels are straight-forward, others are a bit harder, but by no means impossible (at least by level 29, which is where I am now). Overall, it's a fun game to play on the bus or something like that.
