Cat Quest is an open-world RPG (role-playing game) where everyone is a cat. It's really adorable and light-hearted, and it's something I've been spending time on here and there on the weekends.

It's also full of cat puns. There are so many cat puns.

Like with other RPGs, there are enemies wandering the overworld and in instanced dungeons. There are some boss fights in the overworld - mostly dragons - and tons of sidequests. It's very easy to get sidetracked by sidequests to the point that I'm overleveled by the time I get back to the main storyline quests, which probably makes them a bit too easy.

Not that I'm complaining! It's super easy to level up just by doing sidequests and everything associated with them. There is essentially no grinding in this game, which is something that I am supper happy about.

There is one thing in particular that I don't like: not being able to choose which weapon or piece of armor to upgrade. It's completely randomized as to what item gets an upgrade and to what extent the stats are boosted.

Overall, this is a nice little game that can be completed in 6-8 hours. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a no-stress RPG to play for 30 minutes to half an hour here and there.
