I've been waiting for a Tamagotchi-like Pet sim for iPhone for a while now, (Pet Rock is cute, lol) and this one is the closest/best there is to one so far. Great job, Sparebytes, a great start for your first iPhone/iPod Touch game, and look forward to your others in the future!

Wow, I mean I am seriously impressed! The interface is great; I love all of the games and things to buy! Not to mention the brilliant concept for a virtual pet game! I am very impressed with it all. Just keep on adding new games, features, items, etc. I would seriously recommend this to anyone who enjoys cute and fuzzy apps.

This is the BEST pet app in the app store! I bought this because I love these things! I quickly fell in love with it, now my kids love it! And I've caught my hubby playing it too! We adore this! Great app! Thank you!
