Having a real pet can be hard sometimes. Maybe your apartment building has rules or someone in your family is allergic. It’s not very good, but there are other things to do, like apps for virtual pets. You adopt, feed, clean, and take care of a little virtual pet in these games, which are a type of simulation. There are good and bad games in this genre, but most of them are cute and good for families. They have also become popular again in a big way in the last few years. Some of the names on this list might sound familiar, like My Tamagotchi Forever, which was made by the same company that made the little Tamagotchis in the 1990s. Here are the best apps and games for Android that have virtual pets.
In terms of how it works, Bubbu is like a Tamagotchi. You begin with Bubbu, which you take care of. Players can feed, dress, cuddle, and bathe their Bubbu, among other things. There are also more than 30 minigames, a small fashion game, and a house-building game. The extra things give players something to do between the important things, like feeding. It’s all about a virtual pet, and everything fits together pretty well. The same people made a similar game called Duddu, which has a dog instead of a cat. You can choose either. Most of the games are the same.
Dogotchi reminds people of the old Tamagotchi. It has a simple 8-bit user interface and a cute dog to take care of. You give it shots, feed it, play with it, and take care of it in other ways. The game has 12 dogs, a way for them to grow up, different minigames, and colours that can be changed. You can get dogs by letting your current puppies grow up. This one is totally free, and you can’t buy anything inside the app. There are advertisements, and we wish we could pay to get rid of them. If you want something free in this genre, this is a great choice. The same person has made several other virtual pet apps with a retro look.
Frojo virtual pet games
Frojo is a developer with a lot of virtual pet games on Google Play. Some of the choices are My Corgi, Moy, Oliver the Virtual Cat, My Chicken, My Lil’ Dino, and many others. All of the games are pretty much the same, so all you have to do is choose which animal you want to take care of. All of them are pretty easy to figure out, except for Moy, who looks like a purple alien octopus. There are a lot of minigames in the games, and you can also do little things to take care of your virtual pet. All of them are good for the whole family, free (with ads), and easy enough for most people to play.
Godville is one of the most unique apps we’ve seen for virtual pets. You act like God most of the time. You have a subject that does all of your work for you, like going on adventures, killing bad guys, collecting loot, and so on. It’s a ZPG, which stands for “zero player game.” This means that the game plays itself. You just tell it to do what you want. You can have the whole RPG adventure experience without actually doing it yourself. The player chooses what guild your minion joins, what quests they do, and even if they help you build temples. It’s a fun little game that you don’t have to do much to enjoy.
Hellopet is another game that is different from the rest. This one makes use of your phone’s screen overlay feature to give you a little pet. The pet pretty much always runs around on your phone. You might see it while replying to a text message or going through your app drawer. In the game, you adopt a pet, take care of it, and play small games with it. At its heart, it’s a pretty standard game about a virtual pet. But we couldn’t help but get excited when, while scrolling through Twitter one day, a dog ran across the screen. This one could have much better in-app purchases, but it doesn’t seem to change the most fun parts of the game that much.
My Boo is another popular app that looks like a traditional virtual pet. You take in a cute little blob monster and raise it. The player takes care of it, feeds it, and gives it different clothes and other things to make it unique. To be honest, this one doesn’t have a lot of unique things. The game is good at everything to do with virtual pets, which makes it easy to recommend. Sometimes the ads are a little too much, but you can pay money to get rid of them. Overall, it’s a pretty good time.
My Tamagotchi Forever
My Tamagotchi Forever is the mobile remake of the popular little game from the 1990’s. But this is nothing like the old game in how it looks or how it plays. It is a good way to use apps for virtual pets, though. You take care of your Tamagotchi by raising it, playing with it, feeding it, and cleaning up after it, as usual. This one also includes a neat augmented reality feature that ties into the game quite well. We really think you should get the game just to try out the AR features. It is a freemium game that has freemium features. But you don’t have to worry about them if you’re patient.
Neko Atsume is a very well-known game about cats. In fact, the Easter egg in Android Nougat was a lot like this one. Players spend their time putting out food for cats, which they then adopt. The goal of the game is to get all 40 or so cats that are in it. You can make changes to the cats’ living space and give them toys to play with. It’s not like other games with virtual pets. But it has enough of the parts, and we think this one is really cute.
Cat Sim Online
There are many games with virtual pets, but not all of them are in 3D or look like real animals. Most of them have 2D styles that look like cartoons. But not everyone likes to play with flat cartoon animals as pets. People like to play games with virtual pets that look more real. With Cat Sim Online, you can do that with a virtual cat that looks and acts like a real cat.
But Cat Sim Online is different from most virtual pet games because you can play as the cat. So, unlike Tamagotchi-style app games, you don’t have to take care of the cat. But you can let your imagination run wild and be the cat yourself.
You can spend as much time as you want looking at the gardens, lawns, and houses in the area. If you’re tired of being by yourself, you can use the app’s multiplayer feature to play with a friend. You can also change the way your cat looks if you want to stand out from the crowd. On both iOS and Android, the app is free, but you can buy things inside of it.
Cthulhu Virtual Pet
Who says you can only have cats and dogs as virtual pets? This game goes against that rule because it lets you have your own pet Cthulhu. If you like H.P. Lovecraft’s monster, this game will be a treat for you. Even though it looks a bit older than other games, that makes it even more fun and charming. It only has one colour and a pixelated look, but that doesn’t affect how it plays at all.
Like most virtual pet games, this one lets you take care of your pet Cthulhu. You have to raise it, care for it, and help it grow until it can do everything it can. Of course, that means you have to feed your Cthulhu fish or even Cthulhu’s witnesses.
Yes, it’s a bit morbid, but it’s still a lot of fun. But, like other virtual pet games, you need coins to buy food and activities for your pet. Don’t worry, playing mini-games is an easy way to get coins. Just try to get a high score so you can get more coins. The app is free on both iOS and Android, but you can buy things inside the app.
