AFK Cats is cutesy idle game for mobile in which you get to take control over an army of steampunk-styled cats - a cat-alion if you will. Originally launched for iOS back in September, the game has now made its way to the Android platform. Check out its trailer below:

If you love cats and are also fond of idle games, AFK Cats might be the purr-fect game for you (Ok, I’ll show myself out now). In this game, you'll assemble a team of steampunk kittens to fight against an evil vacuum cleaner named Doomba - because as we all know, vacuum cleaners are mortal enemies of cats.

Of course, since this is an idle game, a large part of the fighting and grinding will take place when you’re AFK (hence the name AFK Cats). Your feline army will automatically battle enemies and collect materials as well as new equipment even when you are not playing.

The game boasts over 70 characters and more than a hundred weapons to collect. Moreover, giving the correct weapon to the right hero will be a major focus here, as that will create a powerful combo.

Team composition is another thing you have to keep in mind. Some cats will get along well with others while some won’t, and it is up to you to appropriately arrange them to get the best result.

There’s a PvP mode allowing you to battle another player, but if you are the type who prefers to finish the singleplayer campaign before moving on to multiplayer, it’ll likely be quite a while before you get there. The main mission includes over ten thousand battle stages, so even with the game playing itself while you’re absent, it’ll require a decent amount of time.

AFK Cats is currently available for both Android and iOS. It's a free-to-play game, so naturally IAPs are included.
