A new game from HumaNature Studios, Kimono Cats is billed as a charming title designed for all ages. After selecting your main cat and its companion, Kimon Cats sees you entertaining your cats at a Japanese “matsuri” festival.
This involves activities like throwing darts at moving bubbles, playing mini-games, encountering other characters and so forth. As you earn coins, you’ll be able to buy houses and various decorations to build your own village. You can even visit other players’ villages and leave gifts, messages and stamps in their guest books.
Kimono Cats supports iOS, iPadOS, macOS and tvOS [App Store link].
Osmos+ (March 17)
Osmos from Hemisphere Games is among the longest-standing App Store classics. Sporting physics-based gameplay, dreamlike visuals and a minimalist electronic soundtrack, this game challenges you to grow yourself by absorbing other motes.
Touch anywhere to eject water and propel yourself, but there’s Catch 22: ejecting matter also shrinks you. Cosmos+ includes 50 levels and more bonus content across several ambient worlds such as Solar, Antimatter, Warped Chaos and Epicycles.
