Satisfying, but can get boring

The positives: the game’s graphics are so cute, I prefer the little pixel pups to hyper-realistic ones. The game is about adopting shelter dogs, which is fantastic. It’s rewarding and satisfying to build up each dog until they are ready to be adopted.

The negatives: it gets boring after a little while. There’s not much to do, other than have a dog do something, wait, and then gain points. That’s pretty much it. The graphics are cute but there’s only a few different dogs that are cycled through. Sometimes you have to wait 12 minutes at a time for something to happen, and I lose interest quickly.

What I suggest: this game has a ton of potential. I think that there should be different dogs... with how simple the pixels are, it would be easy to add in at least 20 more breeds and breed mixes, or at least have different colors for dogs that have the same foundation. Maybe adding the ability to teach dogs tricks. Maybe changing the layout and style of each kennel. Maybe interviewing potential adopters. Maybe “introducing” dogs to each other. Maybe making finding the stray dogs more interactive. Maybe, even, adding a similar cat kennel. There’s SO much that could be done to make the game more interesting.

Very cute game but many bugs

I’ll complete achievements and they won’t process. Another bug I see is when I make a dog do something like eat, for example, it’ll show the dog in the shower.

I also believe that game isn’t correctly lined up for the newer IPhones. I have an XR and if I wanted to look at the awareness for adopting and the different organizations, some of the words are cut off.

Despite the small things, the game is very lovely. I love the message behind the app. A suggestion to make it more like the player owns the shelter is to add seasons, like during the winter, there is an increase in people abandoning their animals due to the cold weather and the holidays. Add cats!!!! Add dilemmas the player has to face! Owning a shelter isn’t easy and hard decisions must be made sometimes. Maybe add a donation feature, volunteers, stuff like that. This game has so much potential and I’m excited to see what comes of this game. :)

Promotes adopt don’t shop and PETA :(

I love this game but it can get pretty boring after awhile. This game also promotes adopt don’t shop and supports PETA, (which I won’t get into why there is something WRONG with both).
Besides those things I think this game is pretty well made but it can be better, they can make finding the dogs more fun or just make the game more interactive without having to use energies. Plus they can add more dog breeds, what doesn’t make sense though is how stray is a breed? All the dogs are strays technically, you could call them mutts instead or add a more variety with the mutts like some are mixed with the breeds in game. Maybe add more dog breeds too, more large dog breeds and maybe breeds that can come in the shelter with cropped ears or a docked tail :)!
