Interspecies iPad Games

'You vs. Cat' Allows You to Face off Against Your Feline Friends

— March 13, 2012 — Unique
It’s exactly what it sounds like; the Purina cat food brand Friskies has already released cat-friendly iPad games such as Cat Fishing, Tasty Treasures Hunt and Party Mix-Up but now the company is working on a game that allows humans to pit themselves against their feline friends in the upcoming 'You vs Cat' iPad game.

Working around the principles of air hockey, You vs Cat has the human player flick a piece of pixelated cat food across the screen with the intention of having it reach the other end before your cat can swipe it away.

Of course, what gaming experience would be complete without an interactive scoreboard; You vs Cat will have a leaderboard that will update which member of the animal kingdom is the reigning champion of this upcoming interspecies iPad game.
