Features all the popular characters from Pets, easy to learn, good graphics
Doesn't push the gameplay
The Secret Life of Pets Unleashed for Android is a match-three game that is based on the popular Pixar Illumination Entertainment’s latest animated movie. One that takes a hilarious peek into the lives of pets. I’d be remisced to say that I’ve seen this movie, though it interests me, but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the game.
Now, honestly, the only thing that truly separates this game from any other match-three game is its subject matter. In this game you’re actually matching pet toys. The grid for the toys takes up a large portion of the screen, but up top you’ll also see popular characters from the show, as well as music, too.
Gameplay is fairly straightforward. You’ll run through a lengthy tutorial that tells you about all of the different shapes you can match toys in. The tutorial shows you the various power-ups and game objectives, too. Many of the objectives revolve around trying to match a specific amount of toys indicated in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. In the amount of time I spent with the game, I can safely say that the game doesn’t really ask too much from the player and definitely understands that its target audience is on the younger side.
The Secret Life of Pets is an entertaining match-three game that doesn’t do anything new to the formula but doesn’t take anything away either. If you’re looking for a game to blow your mind with amazing, new mechanics then this probably isn’t the game for you. But if you’re a huge fan of the movie then you’ll have a lot of fun with this one.
