iPuppy 3D Pet 0.2.0

The software has been finally updated and seems slightly more interesting. Now you can choose your dog color, buy more clothes and accessories, choose food, name the dog and see if he is fine. Many other functions are promised to come soon...

iHusky doesn't seem to be updated yet, just the Chiwawa version...

I find it odd that they have apparently decided to make iHusky a "lite" version now.
I wonder what they will limit?
I myself like the iHusky better then the Chihuahua. I just think it is cuter.
Hopefully they will update iHusky soon and theyre wont be any limited features.
OR they could put out some more breeds soon. I would be fine with that too!

See the evil in those eyes? Boo! sssssss! Husky ftw!

Seriously, what's the update like? How do you buy new stuff- is there a shop or are they just available from the menu?

There's just a menu bar... now I can't buy nothing because the dog is too young to wear clothes. When you make him eat there's a new camera view and you can choose food from a similar bar. I see on the instructions that there's a bathroom too and a garden, with similar action menus, but my dog is too young for them.

Other things: now you can slightly zoom with a pinch. You get more rich every time you open the app, the dog has 30 levels and you can wear a particular cloth only if you reach that level. When you make him sleep you can turn the light off, he sleeps on his little bed (changing the camera view, again).

It's not as much as I expected, but the game is now more entertaining. Far from Nintendog yet.

That all actually sounds pretty good! I like the sound of the bathroom and garden (Nintendogs didn't have a garden!). I just wish my one had the update too. Maybe it will be next. After all, the husky one was released afterwards to begin with, so maybe they are working on that ones update now. Fingers crossed. Thanks for the info. You do have a nice dog btw- I was just kidding before

My Milo is beautiful :-) The chihuahua had to be updated before january the 12th and the update arrived just today... maybe they're just a little late with the husky too...
