MovieCat 2 Review
Round, squishy felines have been taking up couch space worldwide for decades with their humans, viewing films of all sorts through narrowed, indifferent eyes. MovieCat 2, the follow-up to a popular movie trivia game, puts these Netflix companions front and center in endearing and humorous ways.
MovieCat 2 is played through five rounds of five questions each, with a special Cat Scene question at the end. Players get nine lives, and can lose them by giving wrong answers. There is both a single-player and pass-and-play two-player mode.
The questions can be challenging, especially those from older or more obscure films. Typically these questions require identifying either the actor, director, or movie title of the film. Fortunately, the adjustable difficulty gives non-cinephiles a fighting chance, allowing players some control over both the difficulty of the questions and the number of lives lost for each wrong answer. Players have three chances to answer each question correctly.
