Though it sounds much like a simulation game from the description, Dancing Cat's plays more like a visual novel. The game plays automatically for the most part, arranging events and advancing the story by itself; however, on numerous occasion the player is given a dialogue choice or another option that might influence the course of events.
Unlike most games of this kind, Dancing Cat's has real-time 3D graphics. It is possible to rotate and zoom the camera at most locations; however, there is no character movement of any kind. Sex scenes are mostly presented as looping pre-rendered videos; similarly to the technique used in the first Des Blood, the player can choose various sexual positions and also view the movies from a different angle.
