Very fun, a little limited

Got this game yesterday and my daughter and I have been fighting over who’s turn it is to play. However I think it could really use some improvements. In addition to the more creature parts everyone wants, it would be nice to have a paint mode to recolor creatures. Easier things to implement would be increasing the range on the size slider, especially on ears and wings. And most of the heads need more connection points. Like a lot more. Maybe we want a flamingo with ears AND horns. Or a cat with spikes down it’s neck. It would also be nice to scroll through the animals on the world screen and race screens. Exiting and reentering the race because you forgot to bring all your fish to the front is annoying. And one last thing to consider, is it might be better on the world screen if you could only interact with objects of the type whose tab is open. Meaning when the animal tab is open you can’t move trees and bushes, it’s like they aren’t even there until you open the plants tab. Just a few ideas. It’s a fun game overall

Graphics and relism

So okay this is a great app it just needs some improvement. I don’t like the 2d graphic. maybe could you make it like toca nature? I would be soooo awsome to see my cheetah spread its wings and soar into the sky. And realism, I’m sorry but I don’t think something with blue jay wings is going to go slow as a snail or with cheetah legs to go slow as someone walking plz fix these and add some drako wings!!!

Free Fish! ,

Please add tabs!

This is a good game, but I read a review. You did respond, but not in the correct way, You didn't add any new bird feet, canine parts, eel head, octopus tentacles, or any of the others. Just random mammalian and reptilian parts. What about piscine or avian parts? And also make varieties of the parts under tabs, like with the butterfly wing example, As another example, for the fish tail, tuna tail, largemouth bass tail, red drum tail and also the shark tail. Also, base speed on more natural qualities, for swimming, streamlined fish bodies, tails and fins, for flying, wing size and the bird body types (air sacs) and for running, body and limb shape and size, instead of the number of limbs. Please make this update. Please? Pretty please? Pretty please with bird legs, eel heads, and tentacles on top?!! Don't forget the crawfish claws!!! And the owl face, sloth claws, peacock tail, spider legs, too! P.S, I like sea creatures!
