| Cat vs. Ball

In case you missed it, Shaggy Mane Studios has officially released Cat vs. Ball, the studio's first mobile game that's all about - as you've probably guessed - a cat versus a ball. The casual game tasks you with unleashing your wrath on an unwitting ball as Lenny, a so-called kung fu master and a "kitty with bags of attitude."

In the aptly titled Cat vs. Ball, all you'll really have to do is tap to hit the ball from side to side to nab that high score. Despite its refreshingly casual nature, the game does have a bit of backstory to it, and I quote, "One day, when a mysterious ball on a stick drops from the sky, Lenny's cat-like instincts kick in and he can't help but investigate."

Of course, being a cat, Lenny gives in to his curiosity and starts hacking away at this malevolent ball hell-bent on making his life miserable for some reason - at least, in his probable opinion. You'll have to do everything in your power to help Lenny get the satisfaction he deserves by tapping to make him unleash a flurry of kung fu moves on that wayward ball.
