Ah, Grumpy Cat. It was only a matter of time before you got your own mobile game. That time was actually last year, but that's neither here nor there. The point is Grumpy Cat's Worst Game Ever is a thing that exists and it's actually a pretty solid collection of microgames.
Get Your Grump on
There are a lot of games on offer, so we won't be covering all of them, but there are some general pointers worth keeping in mind.
- Shake your stickers. Sometimes the stickers you've unlocked will spit out coins if you shake them. Might as well do it every now and then, just in case.
- Check the Daily Mission. Daily Missions are basic score challenges that focus on a single microgame. They're a good way to earn a few extra coins, as well as familiarize yourself with games you might not have unlocked yet.
- Where you are determines the stickers you get. For example, if you're in the Garden and go to use the claw machine thing, you'll get stickers for the Garden. Your coins aren't tied to a location, however, so you could play a bunch of games in one area, then move to another to unlock stickers from a different set if you want to.
- Work fast. Each game is on a timer, and those timers get shorter the longer you last. You'll have a little time when first starting out to get used to some of the games, but once it starts moving you won't have that luxury.
- Pay attention to the prompts. Right as a game starts you'll be given a short blurb about what you have to do (hit the rats, catch the dot, etc).
Not the Worst
I was genuinely surprised by how much fun I had with Grumpy Cat's Worst Game Ever. Not that I was taking the name at face value, but truth be told I wasn't expecting a whole lot from a free game based on an internet meme. Turns out it pulls from a great source, and does so quite adeptly.
