Petz: Dogz 2 is an adorable adventure game about dogs, released all the way back in 2007. It's simple, vibrant, and a boatload of fun to mess around in, so if that sounds like something you'd enjoy then I definitely recommend you get your hands on this cute game and try it for yourself.
Choosing your dog
In Petz: Dogz 2, you get to play as a dog, and you even get to choose the breed you want! There are 40 options ranging from small dog breeds to big ones, so have a scroll through them all when you start up a new save file and pick your favourite. They're all incredibly adorable, so good luck choosing just one! Additionally, you get to name your dog whatever you want, so take advantage of that and maybe even consider naming your virtual dog after your real one if you own one!
A story about a magic hat
Believe it or not, this game has a story mode for you to enjoy! It's centred around a magic hat that you and your friend get tricked into giving away to an evil wolf called Ivlet. The hat has special powers which Ivlet uses to wreak havoc across the Dog Island you all live on, so it’s your mission to track him down and retrieve the hat while helping other animals along the way. It may sound like a silly story, but it’s actually really cute, and although you may not enjoy it if you're older, younger players are sure to love it.
Fun with minigames
A lot of Petz: Dogz 2 revolves around minigames, which are played throughout the main adventure by talking to wild animals in the world, but they can also be accessed from the menu screen. There are so many different ones, including races, flying games, and even treasure hunts, so be sure to try them all out! Alongside these minigames, you’ve also got a fishing minigame which triggers every time you try to catch a fish. That’s right, you can even go fishing! There are quite a lot of unexpected features in this game so prepare to be pleasantly surprised.
Petz: Dogz 2 is a really charming game that’s somewhat reminiscent of Nintendogs, at first, but is closer in gameplay style to Animal Crossing, if I'm honest. Though it may seem like a kids game, it has a lot more depth to it than you may think, so I’d definitely recommend you download Petz: Dogz 2 for yourself and give it a go, regardless of your age.
