In May 2011, Friskies launched several iPad games with cats as the intended audience. However, those games were for cats only; the company is now working on a new game that will let a human play against a cat.
Called You vs. Cat, the upcoming game has first been spotted at SXSW, and it lets you hurl virtual objects at your cat across the iPad screen.
Earlier cat games from Friskies, called Cat Fishing, Tasty Treasures Hunt and Party Mix-Up — as you can see in the video below — are quite similar, letting cats “hunt” and “destroy” the items on the iPad screen.
Can an iPad game against a human opponent keep a cat interested long enough to make this a real contest? Based on our experience with cats catching wool strings and laser pointers, absolutely.
Who do you think will win in this ultimate test of human intelligence against feline cunningness and reflexes? Sound off in the comments!
