Description

Molecats is a challenging, indirect-control puzzler that tasks you with maneuvering cat-mole hybrids! As the Molecats delve into nearby caves to retrieve delicious 'shrooms and shiny relics, it's your job to keep each of them on the safest, direct path to goodies – avoiding traps and monsters along the way! Explore a charming underground world and solve tunnel-twisting puzzles in Molecats – a challenging puzzle adventure game! It’s up to you to guide adorable and gawky “Molecats” (cat-mole hybrids) through caves by rotating tiles to change the paths they follow so they can successfully finish their adventures. Face a slew of dangerous traps, spooky monsters, and tough challenges – and meet a whole bunch of strange characters along the way!
