Free Puzzle Game App For Windows 8: Cat Trap

Cat Trap is a free puzzle game app for Windows 8 and 8.1 in which the cat has eaten your goldfish and you have to capture the cat to punish it. In the game, you have to click on the blocks surrounding the cat in order to capture the cat. The gameplay zone is made up of a lot of blocks which when clicked will activate and become a blockage. The aim is to surround the cat with blockages so that it can’t escape. The hard part is that the cat keeps jumping to random blocks when you click on a particular block, although it can jump only one block at a time. So you have to plan ahead and click on an appropriate box so that the cat doesn’t escape. If the cat escapes, it’s game over and you lose the game.

Cat Trap is available for free from the Windows App Store.
