'Mew Mew Tower': iPhone gets greatest cat game ever

It's like Jenga, only with cats. Game concepts don't come much simpler, more cute, or more addictive.

Build a tower of Japanese cats of varying sizes, while using the iPhone's accelerometer to ensure they don't topple to their demise. Game concepts don't come much simpler, more cute, or more addictive.

Mew Mew Tower (iTunes link) from B3 United is the latest cat-themed game to hit the iTunes App Store, and for $1.70 it might well be the best money you'll spend in January. We've been playing it for the last 24 hours, gleefully cheering as the ever-growing tower of cats meow in delight as another chubby puss is piled on to the apex.

Using your finger, it's simply a case of pulling a cat from a hot air balloon, strategically placing it atop your cat tower, then returning to the balloon for a fresh cat. Our record is currently a tower of cats about 23 feet high.

It's like Jenga, only with cats. The kitten physics leave something to be desired, but as stacking 20 cats on top of each other is as good as impossible in real life, you'd have to be a buffoon to complain that Moggy McFat-Paws didn't plummet to his doom quite realistically enough. What are you, a sadist? Get off our Web site!

You can buy the game from the App Store now for $1.70, for the iPhone and iPod Touch, and you really, really should--even if just for the insanely awesome sound effects and hand-drawn kitties. Once you play, let us know what you think of the game in the comments below.
