Hey guys, Nick here bringing another fun and unique game review from the Japan iTunes Store! Today, I was able to check out the game, てのひらワンコ 【スマホでわんこ育成】, or roughly translated at "Smartphone Dog Training" developed and published by, Age Inc! I found this to be an adorable virtual pet game where you care for very cute breeds of dogs. Let's check it out!
When you enter the game, you're given an option of which dog you would like to begin your pet care-taking journey on, and I ended up choosing a pretty popular one. As I scrolled through the list, I noticed some were still unselectable, which lead me to believe that you must earn those other doggies as you get more experience in the game.
As far as the virtual pet aspect of the game, you use swiping and tapping gestures to feed, clean and walk your pets. Additionally, there is an awesome doggy cash shop where you can buy your pet different fun outfits. This same currency is used to pick up all of your dogs needed products like food and soap, so spend wisely.
With your doggie, you are able to also take them on walks to see other players in the game. This gives you experience points, coins and also allows you to enjoy other people's progress in the game. I found this to be a really cool aspect, since it's not much of a multiplayer title, yet still had a bit of online fun.
Above, I've linked a video that shows some of the gameplay so you guys can get a better feel of the game, without giving away too much! I also forgot to mention that you are also able to fully customize and decorate your home, in the game! I hope you guys take the time to check this title out! てのひらワンコ 【スマホでわんこ育成】, or roughly translated at "Smartphone Dog Training" developed and published by, Age Inc is available now free to download and play on the Japanese Apple iTunes App Store!
