Gaia Interactive launches RumbleKitten on iOS

rumblekitten

Monster Galaxy developer Gaia Interactive’s newest game, RumbleKitten, is now on available on the iTunes App Store.

RumbleKitten is a free-to-play gesture-based game, set in a Dickensian world where orphaned cats engage in “underground tickle fights” in order to gain freedom from the oppression of local kingpin Daddy Cat. Players must spend energy to engage in these battles against other cats, which requires one to swipe the screen in order to capture stars (as well as boost items) while avoiding making contact with launched bombs. The basic gameplay mechanics are reminiscent of Halfbrick’s Fruit Nina titles.

If stars are missed or a bomb is detonated, players will lose a portion of their health. A fight ends when either a player or their opponent runs out of health.

RumbleKitten monetizes through the sale of in-game currency which is used to purchase outfit items (thereby increasing a character’s “swag”, which helps unlock new areas), purchase premium items and free other cats from Daddy Cat’s custody. Freed cats provide passive boosts like increased health.

The game’s social features appear to be limited to sharing photos of a player’s custom cat outfit via the “Instakitten” feature, which will post photos via Facebook and/or Twitter. Currently, Gaia Interactive seems to be focused on adjusting the game experience, as a recurring message asking if players are having fun pops up and thanks them for their feedback.
