Cats Love Cake 2 is a side-scrolling platformer that features adorable round-shaped animals and other creatures that bounce on the screen. Although this game doesn't feature a borb, it does offers a wide range of cute, puffy animals beyond cats across its more than 150 levels, including a dog, a raccoon, a giraffe, a penguin, a bunny, a turtle and a unicorn!
The player must skillfully bounce an animal upon tiers and over or under obstacles in front of a colored background decorated with geometric shapes, including spikes, pits and moving platforms. Their goal is for the cat or other creature to reach a big cake on a stool at the end of the level. They unlock new animals after successfully completing so many levels.
The game doesn't require that the player bounce an animal perfectly on the stool. The can bounce it on top or on the side of the cake, knock the cake off the stool or knock over the stool entirely. When they succeed, confetti bursts into the air. The animal also expresses their love and appreciation with a heart in a thought bubble.
Cats Love Cake 2 offers the player several hints, including graphics on the background that mark the exact way the animal should bounce for the safest route over and under objects and dotted lines that reveal the paths of moving obstacles. Although these hints disappear entirely after so many levels, they return if the player fails and retries the level.
