Kitty Letter(opens in new tab) combines anagrams, real-time strategy, and the oddball sensibilities of Matthew Inman, cartoonist of The Oatmeal. The premise is a battle between two households, which send explosive cats their neighbor’s way. The bigger the word you spell, the more cats head off in your destructive clowder.
Strategy comes from the paths the cats take, which are based on a word’s first letter. So if a half-dozen cats with an S above them are about to smash your home, you’d best respond with something suitably superb. Oddball power-ups further add to the chaos across the game’s story, endless and multiplayer modes.
With its ridiculous visuals and jaunty soundtrack, Kitty Letter feels a very breezy game. But beneath its fun and furry exterior is a strategy-laced challenge that’ll swipe away any complacency with a clawed paw.
