Fetch me a $50 iTunes Giveaway from Big Fish Games!
The first dog I remember having was Muppy, named for the fact that I was too small to say puppy. When I was about four Amos came into my life. He was the most lovable St. Bernard you ever saw, all slobber and big feet. I followed him everywhere and he got so big that I used to get in trouble for climbing on his back for a ride. Then there was Gopher a Basset Hound/Blue Healer mix. Yeah, he was a bit odd to look at and more than a bit goofey in his mannerisms. Each dog was special and unique and I was a lucky girl to have so many four-legged friends when I was growing up.
Fetch tells the story of a boy who has that same kind of luck, sharing adventures with Bear his best puppy pal. But this isn’t an average story about teaching his dog new tricks. It’s the story of an average boy who is willing to go to extraordinary lengths to “fetch” his pal from a dog-napping fire hydrant (which we find is a front for a much more sinister entity). Each chapter of the adventure is introduced by a short video clip that sets the scene for the games. Games that even my eighteen year old daughter declared to challenging and “super, super adorable”!
The graphic detail flows seamlessly as you move from videos to challenges, incorporating arcade style games like I’ve seen in no other app. We were blown away by the diverse activities and depth of Fetch. One game has you taking down monsters with a finger tap. Then another has you playing with amplitude and wavelength to produce sound waves that will eliminate dangerous robots. The self guided game play approach also includes informative tours adding an educational dimension to the experience. The interactive laser tour provided a glimpse of the ocean floor with prehistoric, bioluminescence fish, this evolved to coal steam engines and modern computers. Fetch is truly an app that offers fun and entertainment for all ages. It’s a great app to share as a family.
