Mute, cute animals, physics puzzles and one-finger controls - we've been here before, haven't we? There's little escaping that Clumsy Cat is a cynical attempt to win a mass audience, but for all that it's got something going for it. Especially if you're a cat owner, and thus all too familiar with the random acts of *apparently* accidental destruction these charming menaces tend to wreak in our homes.
You play here as the titular feckless feline, charged with toppling as many breakable household objects from shelves, tables and cupboards as possible before the timer runs out. This entails simple swiping and tapping to pounce and push and, er, that's about it. There's very little meat on the game's bones, and it hinges on in-app purchases of new cat breeds and even other species (monkeys, most temptingly) which are capable of greater speed and force as well as the obvious visual change.
