Each piece of food you collect will make your kitten a little bigger and harder to push around. Keep fattening up your kitten until it reaches the perfect size to win. The game includes support for up to four total players, four power-ups, and a delightful soundtrack. Whiskers is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 11 ratings.
