In the game Hide and Seek: Cat Escape you play a miniature version of a girl who is trying to eat the delicious treats that are on the table. However, she needs to avoid being seen by the angry cat who also lives in the house. The player controls the girl in a side scrolling motion as she runs towards the food and tries to avoid being seen by the cat. This can be done by ducking behind objects while the cat is looking at the table. However, as the game progresses, the items become smaller and fewer in number. They can also become mobile, requiring the player to constantly adjust their strategy. 

As the player moves through the course they can collect coins which allow them to purchase new outfits, items, even new types of cats. 

Hide and Seek: Cat Escape is free to play but in-app purchases are available. An ad-free version of the game is available for purchase, which is recommended for younger players due to the unpredictable content of some ads.

Hide and Seek: Cat Escape!   helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Focus: Sustaining energy for short-term tasks. 

Each level in Hide and Seek: Cat Escape is short, meaning it is great for a player who needs to improve their focusing skills. The sole objective in the game is to avoid being seen by an angry house cat, meaning the player needs to focus on how they are going to stay hidden. Blocking out other distractions and focusing on this objective becomes harder as the game goes on and various obstacles begin to change. However, there are plenty of levels in the beginning which allow for players to work their way up to focusing in harder circumstances. 


Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations. 

Hide and Seek: Cat Escape is a great way for players to practice their flexibility. The earlier levels allow for players to become used to the way the game is played. However, as the levels get harder, players need to adapt to changing conditions. Sometimes the objects to hide behind are smaller, giving less room for error in timing. Other times, the family dog will pop up, blocking your view and causing you to estimate where your character is instead of being able to see her. Various other changes in gameplay allow students to practice adapting to changes and altering their actions based on these changes.
