Description: “My Own Pet” is a game in which you will find an animal that will need you to care for him and help to grow. You will also take care of the environment, cleaning the dirt, pick up fruit on the ground.
Review: My Own Pet was probably the first attempt at a virtual pet simulator for VR and sadly it doesn’t do well at all. The dog is poorly animated and just seems to go about its day, regardless of what you do and the choice of dogs is practically non-existent. I know this…”game” is for the little ones, but I can’t imagine even my little ones would enjoy this. There is just no way to justify this games asking price and even if it was free it would be hard to recommend it. Maybe it is the app’s age that lets it down so much, but I just think it was a terrible app no matter what date you play it.
