Fluffy cat creates mayhem in Crash and Smash for Windows Phone

Cats are adorable, except when they trash your place. Check out a new game for Windows Phone called Crash and Smash where you play as a cat, destroying anything in the apartment while the owner is away. The goal is to knock as many of the owner’s possessions onto the floor as possible in one minute.

Head past the break to watch our gameplay video.

The main hero in the game is Boris, a seemingly adorable cat who was shuffled from home to home and finally adopted by the Kind Human. However, Boris is hardly a model cat. Mean-spirited and incorrigible, the fluffy mischief-maker creates mayhem in the apartment while the owner is not at home.

You score points every time you knock over a book, bottle, flowerpot, or any other fragile and valuable object. There are two ways to control Boris the cat:

  • Cat controller - use left hand for moving and turning
  • Classic control - use left hand for moving and right hand for turning

Crash and Smash

Both controllers takes time to get used to, but we prefer classic. Lateral movements are possible when you click on the directional pad on the left side, while turning is possible by swiping on the screen with the right thumb. The right corner also has controls for jumping, right paw, and left paw. If you’re on a shelf and the wall is on your right side, it’s better to use the right paw to push the objects towards the wall on the left side.

The initial version of Crash and Smash only has three levels. It’s currently limited to the living room, kitchen and bathroom. It’s still in early stages of development and the developers want to make it better. They’re looking to add seven more locations in an update.

Crash and Smash costs $2.49 at the Windows Phone Store without a free trial. We think that’s a little pricey, considering there are currently only 3 levels available. If you’re eager to try it out, you can also try this link to the free version that might be available for a limited time. Is this your type of game? Let us know in the comments!
