The player of The Battle Cats will lead an army of feline warriors across a fantasy realm populated by a wide variety of creatures. On the left and right sides of the screen, at the outset of the game, are the locations of the respective warriors' homes. More coins are generated the faster time goes by, and you may spend these coins to automatically enlist more cats to fight for both sides. The cats can be upgraded to provide you a temporary strength boost during battle.
The winner of the game is the first group to destroy the enemy's central fortress. Many different actions will be required of players as they make their way through the game. Similar to Battles Of Seas, these goals may be as straightforward as defeating an enemy force or as complex as gaining an advantage over a superior force. The player is rewarded with either experience points or cat food upon finishing an assignment.
You can complete in-game tasks and enlist new cats with the help of your mouse.
