Ratings and Reviews
Was cute before update, now even better
Before this recent update, all you got for free was just the virtual pet gif that kind just drifted around its little box. Was very mediocre and not unique. But now??? Holy cow I love this thing. It’s like a little tamagotchi on your phone, I freaking love it. I made a virtual version of my cat and I love how many options there are for interactions. They also added a ton of other widgets, the infinite scroll I don’t really understand, but the world explorer widget is so cute and fun. The pixel art has been upgraded and is so much cuter now, so much more detail. I freaking love this thing, AND THANK YOU FOR MAKING IT FREE. Love it, very rarely you find an app you really like that isn’t constantly trying to squeeze a couple bucks outta you. Good on this app, well done.
Only thing I don’t like that if you tap the screen too fast it will open up the app asking for money. Super annoying, especially for the infinite scroll game and the world explorer, like you want to move faster than 1 square a move but if you tap too fast it opens up the app and makes the game go away, super annoying.
Really Awesome, a couple things though (updated to 3)
Hi! I recently got the app and loved it immediately. The cat (Hugo) looked exactly like my cat at home! However, the first thing I see when I open the app is the chance to buy premium. I don’t think much of it, and look for the button to close the screen. Now, I’m not sure if this is just my (discontinued) iPod Touch’s fault, but the top part was completely cut off, so if there was a close button, I wouldn’t have seen it! I had to forcequit the app just to add the cat to my screen. After that, it was smooth sailing except for the fact that anytime I opened the app, it kept asking me to rate it! Like, once in a while is fine, but after I was gone for literally 5 seconds? Not cool. Eventually, I decided to just hit the button and write a review, when I saw in the description that I can change the name of my pet. Again, not sure if this is my device’s fault, but I could not figure out how to do this. Finally, I noticed that the actions are basically the same thing. Walk and run are the same, as well as lie down and crouch. Only sleep is unique, and the only difference between that and lie down is the Z’s that float from the pet’s head. Anyway, that’s why I gave it 3 stars. Overall an amazing app, just a few bugs that need to be worked out!
A nice accessory
I’ve been looking for a widget pet for a while now that is easy to check on and this is it. On most other apps you have to open the app and physically take care of the pet and watch adds to get food and I really don’t want a care pet game more so than just a cute widget add on. I usually don’t write reviews but I figured if I was looking for something that take seconds to take care of and is just overall not much of a care game than someone else probably is too. While the car is super easy there is a decent bit to do that keeps me coming back if I am in more of a mood to care for it for a longer period of time than needed. It’s the little things that matter and this game keeps me coming back because you don’t just log on to bathe and feed it and have 3 adds littered between all of those to get the items necessary for it. If you don’t feel forced to pay your more apt to do it and I probably will.
