Every day(ish) in December, we here at Destination Android are celebrating the best games released in 2017, starting with No. 31 on the first. We missed some deadlines, but are nonetheless enthused to bring you the next batch of games up until our absolute favorite game of 2017 is revealed on the 31st.

After writing the review, I couldn’t wait to write up this Game of the Year post about it. Put simply, Cat Quest is an adorable action RPG from The Gentlebros about saving your sister from an evil sorcerer. Along the way you’ll travel across the land completing quests and fighting a variety of monsters with witty and cute banter to accompany you.

The battle system shines in its simplicity: tapping on a monster to attack it. You need only tap once on an enemy for your hero to continually attack it, but be wary of incoming attacks. Enemies use numerous attack patterns and effects to hurt you, so you have to be a bit light on your feet to dodge. Pair that with the magic available to you, and this game packs quite an arsenal of fun for a relatively simple system.

The side quests that you can complete along the way of the main quest are super nifty, and while most of the quests follow a similar formula, the actual stories are neat. I highly enjoyed following the strange happenings of the twin towns on the lake, or the villagers that couldn’t stop eating sweet, delicious meat.

With dozens of quests and items to collect, Cat Quest will surely take up your time like it took up mine. Traversing the continent while discovering the joys of cat puns is certainly the reason Cat Quest clocks in for our No. 8 Android game of 2017.

You can check the launch trailer below.

Cat Quest can be found on Google Play for $4.99
