My real-life cat, it appears, has been frustrated with me lately. Oh, she's still spoiled, but there have been a couple of occasions in which my attention has been diverted from her to a wholly digital feline.
"Super Phantom Cat," to be specific, has won my heart.
"Super Phantom Cat" even seems self-aware. "Love," the game tells players, "lights up the sad and cold chamber of your heart."
You know what else warms the soul? A fluffy, shape-shifting interactive cat that can jump on robots, pounce through rainbow-hued worlds and occasionally harness the power of magical sprites to blow up walls.
