Classic retro pixel arcade action for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch!

It is the year 199X and the world is filled with pixel pets. Suddenly, the pixel pets became too wild. Tap them to put them in bubbles and send them home. But DO NOT TOUCH THE BAD PET. It is a mistake.

Game Impressions

Picked it up for my daughter to play, this one is actually pretty fun. The music is great, and the game is good twitch-action fun. Reminds me a lot of Wild Gunman. The incidental bits in the levels are great.

A good hint is that the animal you're not supposed to bubble is the same one that pops it's head out during the stage start screen...

Couple of things:

1) Needs an 'easy' mode where you can just tap away for kids. (Maybe a time attack mode?)
2) The pixel art is nice, but it would be a class act if everything was drawn consistently instead of scaled - I know that would drastically change the programming...

I'm a bit late to the party to post my thoughts, but I'm here now!

It's a pretty fun game. Very eye friendly art-wise. It's got a nice feel that's used well. It's a well-executed pop the bubble game with characters and multiple levels. It's high score based, always a good thing. I don't regret getting it.

Thanks for the feedback!

@drelbs: A time attack / easy mode for kids sounds like a good idea. I'll see what I can throw together.

@doodlejumper: Thanks! To go along with the "reviews" section I'll probably add some user testimonials to the App Store description later. Mind if I add:
