“We want to thank players and journalists for such a warm welcome of the game. 8 mln downloads on the first weekend is an extraordinary result for the original IP. To our knowledge, no other none-franchise game has ever done this well,” Zeptolab CEO Misha Lyalin commented on the launch.

Besides the game itself, the company also released a C.A.T.S. sticker pack, which became an instant hit in the iMessage store, occupying the 1st place in 112 countries.

In four days following the release, C.A.T.S. players destroyed more than 500 mln battle cars — more than the global car industry produced in 5 years. Around 15 mln bets were already made in the game, resulting in players losing 10 million spare parts. And, most importantly — no cat was harmed in battles!
