Arcade styled games have been quite popular since the last three decades- right from the days when we saw the first video game consoles by Nintendo hitting the market. Whether pure fun and entertainment is your motive or you want to take up a real challenge either against the AI or some other player, Arcade style games are potentially the best type of games that you can have for long hours of entertainment. Today, you can find thousands of such games available for modern devices like PC, laptop, mobile phones, smartphones, tablet PCs, Palms, PDAs etc which have largely replaced the traditional gaming devices and have taken up the entertainment factor to the next level. The exact same things can be found in Swimming Cat v.1.0.
Swimming Cat v.1.0 is a freeware arcade styled game based on the beautiful and fascinating aquatic theme. The main character in the game is a cat which dives into the water to catch fishes. The game has a vivid interface with colorful characters and objects which would freshen up your mind at the very first look of the game screen. On the top of the screen, you can view your score and two bars for the amount of oxygen and the health. Now you have to control this cat to make the dips in the water and catch as many fishes as you can. But since the cat can not breathe inside the water, it needs to go to the surface to take in fresh air, which you can monitor by looking at the oxygen bar. The health bar shows you the life of the cat which gets diminished with the attacks of the warms which live underwater and dragonflies which hover in the air above the water.
To conclude with, Swimming Cat v.1.0 may look a little childlike on the first look but is quiet challenging if you start playing it. It receives a score of three rating points out of five.
