Talking Tom Cat Review
by on November 19, 2010
There’s something about Talking Tom Cat that will haunt when you sleep. We’re not sure if it is the sinister but longing look the digital pet gives you, or the way it stands there hands clasped behind its back waiting for you to do something to it. But Talking Tom Cat will become horror legend: like Chucky before it, it will become known as the entertaining kid’s toy which turned bad.
Not that you will notice when you first load up the app. We’ll even bet you will be a little entertained by the fact you can speak to ‘Tom’ and he will repeat what you say in a squeaky (and we reckon rather condescending) voice.
But once the ‘ha! I’m making this cat do swears’ fun wears off, what you are left with is a phone-based pet who craves constant attention.
If you don’t look after Tom, he’ll sneeze at your screen. He will even start yawning, pretending he’s tired. But remember: he’s not tired, he’s watching and waiting for a time to attack.
Talking Tom Cat is a simplified version of games like Nintendogs, but the fun does wear off rather quickly when you get sick of patting, prodding and giving the cat milk. Yes, the app is initially fun but it’s definitely one for kids. Adults using it will soon get bored they’ll pretend that Tom has secret blood lust.
Or maybe that is just us.
