Little Kitty, Big City

Little Kitty, Big City is such a joyful game! Playing a cat who does typical cat things and is a little mischievous but also welcoming to others. 1 missable and completion takes around 5 hours.


Approximate amount of time to 100%: ~5 hours
Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
Is there a good guide available: Yes, I used this one
Multiplayer achievements: No
Missable achievements: Yes, 1 achievement: talk to the ducklings before doing the objective to bring them home. Each one has a small quest before they will follow you, talk with them first, that way they will tell you why they won’t follow you instantly and that counts toward the “hello” achievement in which you have to talk with all the animals in the neighborhood.
Grinding Achievements: The one to get 20 times photographed is a bit grindy, but if you wear a hat as soon as possible and meow to every person with a phone in their hand, you get already a bunch of them while doing the rest.
DLC-Only achievements: No
Speedrun achievements: No
Time-gated achievements: No
RNG-achievements: No
Does difficulty affect achievements: No difficulty setting, but there is no combat or anything else that will make you fail
Unobtainable/glitched achievements: No

I love that we see so many wholesome games in which you play someone who is a little mischievous but in general, a good person/animal while exploring their world. This game reminds me so much of Lil Gator Game, Tiny Terry’s Turbo Trip, and Rain on Your Parade. The open world in which you’re free to explore but find a bunch of things to do is so addictive to me and it offers so many directions for a game to take.

You play as a cat in this game who was sleeping but then falls out of the window and you don’t have the strength atm to climb back up, you first need to eat something. so your main quest will be to find food, but on your journey, you’ll meet several other animals who all can use a little bit of your time to help them out.

I adored this little kitty and the typical cat things you can do, like swapping items so they break or stretching in a typical cat way. There also is this meow button to get the attention of the humans that walk around in the city. some of those are happy to see you, others ignore you or are even angry already… let alone if you let them trip :P.

The only slightly negative thing I can think of is that jumping feels a bit awkward, but it allows you to hold the button down so you can more precise jumps, which I almost used exclusively at the moment I stopped with just pressing the jump button as an automatic response. So it took a bit of time to unlearn the normal quick button press to jump but it gave me more control over my little kitty.

I struggled a bit with finding my way in the city, but this is totally a “me” problem. I am very bad with having a general sense of direction and a lot of the city quite looks the same. somehow I always thought the fisherman is South, but he is NorthWest as an example. And the way the map opens with the turn of the camera from your view to the map made it a little more confusing. While the arrow on the map correctly shows you which way you’re looking, so it shouldn’t be a problem, but it was just not making sense in my head.

I love the type of achievements this game has. Just doing a bunch of stuff and getting achievements for doing them. The achievement for meeting every animal can be missable (as far as guides online tell me) but who wouldn’t talk with the cute ducklings before pulling them out of their situation and taking them home? Knowing that you have to talk with those 4 before “saving” them is enough to play the game without a guide. However, I would highly recommend wearing a hat as soon as possible and start meowing to everybody who holds a phone from that moment on, because there is an achievement for which 20 people have to take a picture of you.

I highly recommend first going for the fish and going home, because after you finish the main quest you’ll see the collectibles on your map, which just makes it so much easier. The rest of the achievements are basically just for helping everybody and collecting all the hats.

I give Little Kitty, Big City 4 out of 5 stars. A short but wonderful adventure.
