The Dog is out now!

Hi touchArcade fans,

Just letting you know that The Dog is available on the iPhone and iPod touch for download.

It's a quirky pet sim very much designed for casual play. If you like dogs, you'll love the Nintendogs-style gameplay. The reviews have been fantastic and we're really proud of what the game lets you do!

Here's a video link so you can see what all the fuss is about:

We'd love to hear your feedback so please let us know what you think! Cheers

Hassan

Any codes floating around for this one? It looks awesome but some of the images look a bit sparse. I am not saying it has to look like you are in the living room with your dog, but I worry as to how much you get to do and how stale it would be over a period of time.


Also, can the dog die? Not enough pet sims let your "pet" pass away because of negligence or old age. I think they should.

Haha. Well we thought it'd be a little harsh to force you to start all over again, should you 'forget' to feed the little guy. As I said, it's a fairly casual, relaxing game. Plus you'll find it's quite a substantial game for an app.

And graphics wise, it runs really smoothly - check out the video.

Oh, as for the codes - at the moment I've got an allocation for websites and reviewers etc. I may be able to get some on here if we have any left. So WATCH THIS SPACE!

Back again as I have an update on the promo codes. We're running a mini contest for a day or two. Just post a dog-related joke or pun and our favourite 3 posts get a code - simple!

Thanks but I'll stick to touchpets, looks a LOT better and has many more features than this one, sorry!

P.S, why do the dogs look like aliens and all sound the same?

Do you need a game testing or reviewing? PM me!

Plunderland, absolutely amazing game!
