This seems to have a lot of content and variety in gameplay including
virtual pet sim. Anyone give it a try?

I tried it out earlier. Its all accelerometer-based. Pretty good gameplay. The theme and story of the game is for a younger audience, but the actual gameplay is for everyone. I only got to play around 15 mins worth so I'll post more impressions once I get to put some more time into it.

Now Playing: iStunt 2, Monster Trouble, Zombie Runaway, Stylish Sprint, Grim Joggers, Holy Moly Dragons, Fight Night Champion, NBA Jam, Rat On a Skateboard, Puzzle Quest 2, Jungool, Super Stick Golf, Smoody, Gravity Guy.

From Panda Hero developer

Hi! This is Jodi from barefoot explorers, the studio that built Panda Hero. We are very glad you are interested in Panda Hero, and we'd love to hear your game impressions. We tried to create a very rich and deep game that utilizes beautiful art and multiple types of game play including diverse tilt-based missions as well as virtual pet game. The players get to rescue pandas on special missions and then take care of them in a virtual sanctuary. Also for each Panda Hero sold, we plant 3 real trees on Earth. We hope you love it, and thanks for your interest!!!
