The Burgle Cats (にゃんこ大泥棒, lit. Nyanko Great Burglar) is a spin-off game of The Battle Cats/Nyanko Daisensou that is developed by PONOS.


The Burgle Cats is a strategy/puzzle game developed with popular characters from the "The Battle Cats".
In this spin-off game, the Cats break into manors to steal chests as they collect gold, spirits, and customizable outfits and accessories along the way. The Cats must avoid different traps and recognizable enemies, such as Doge as a guard or Otta-smack-u as a fortune teller. The traps are strategically scattered around the manor to prevent the theft of the chest.
This game is exclusively for smartphones (iOS and Android) and cannot be played on a PC without an emulator.
This game is completely free to play, but be aware that there are in app purchases.
