This game makes my own cat look like a saint! Aimed squarely at the younger generation, much younger, this game is fun and entertaining, for a while.

Presented in beautiful cartoon graphics, the aim is to clean up after the naughty cat before the fussy neighbor comes to visit. Each chapter is a room in the house, starting in the extremely clean and tidy living room, which is only clean and tidy until Fiasco the cat decides to turn the room into his own little play pen.

Tidying up can only be done by completing puzzles. These range from simple timed games to harder memory games. Between each puzzle a cute cartoon plays out showing Fiasco going about his merry games and breaking the next object in the room, or tearing a piece of furniture to shreds.

The puzzles are varied and fun; Once Fiasco has spread dirty poor prints across the living room floor, the puzzle is to clean them up as quickly as possible by rubbing fingers over the screen before the time runs out. Slightly harder is a memory puzzle, caused by Fiasco jumping inside the piano, and resulting in a game involving following the piano keys as they are played and repeating the sequence.

As an adult, I found the games to be rather simple, although embarrassingly I was terrible at the timed events. But children will find the character very charming and fun to watch, and the games themselves will keep them entertained for some time.

Unfortunately, the free version only includes the living room in the house, which is played through far too quickly. A further $2.99 is required to unlock the rest of the house and further puzzles.
