When you start the game, you will see the following message:

"The Battle Cats" is completely free to play. However, please be aware that there is paid content.

Main menu as of version 5.7.0.

Following that message will be the game intro, which you can skip.

After that, you will be greeted by the main menu.


Top Yellow Button = Play

Bottom Yellow Button = Settings

Mailbox Button = Mail, Ranking Dojo Rewards Ready For Collection


This is where you can choose the chapters you want to play, or try to get a high score in Catclaw Dojo.


When you first start the game, you will only have Empire of Cats Chapter 1. As you progress, more chapters and game features will be unlocked!

As for the Japanese buttons:


Top yellow button = Help. (Teaches you how to play the game! In Japanese.)

Middle yellow button = Opening. (You can view the Japanese intro again.)

Bottom short yellow button = Ending. (View the Japanese ending. Unlocked when you complete Chapter 1)

Bottom long yellow button = Staff Credits


Top button = Change device (Source device logged in to Google Games, tap first long yellow button you see after pressing said "Change Device button" as illustrated. A pause for loading and then some red text with a red button below it all - that is the "Cancel all Action" button. On the target device, log in to the same Google Games account, repeat the process but this time press the 2nd yellow long button to confirm the transfer of data from the source>target. Once done, the source device's game progress will be erased and the target will have the updated in-game progress) I got an extra Normal Ticket for the successful transfer.

Bottom button = Push Notice On/Off
