Cranky Cat is set in a steampunk world, where players will play the apprentice Roscoe J. Fluffington III, a cat. Roscoe lived in New York, as the most famous cat in the world, or close to it. Unfortunately, his career is no longer at its highest level so to restore, Roscoe built a machine maniac to restore your youth and beauty. But for the track, he'll need the help of your apprentice, you.
This story is told through small animated images. The steampunk elements are welcome and it's funny to see all those gears and a cat full of strange contraptions, but that's it. Will be given to three of the eight players in motion comics with the task of firing the machine if you want to unlock the other. Actually Cranky Cat is just sort of Bust a Move with some different details. In Cranky instead of balls to shoot matching colored balls will spin the colors around to match them inside a white clock.
