Apple Games Features Petz: Catz 2 & Petz: Dogz 2
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games' latest feature goes to the dogs - and cats - with a review of Petz: Catz 2 and Petz: Dogz 2. The pet sim titles from Ubisoft come to Intel mac owners courtesy of TransGaming's Cider emulation software. In the games players create their own virtual dog or cat to care for, train, and dress up. The article includes an overview of the games' features and a list of the seven breeds available in each title.

Whether you own one pet, a menagerie of them, or are pet-free, hereís your chance to try out a variety of dogs and cats in the virtual world. Catz 2 and Dogz 2 each feature seven breeds that you name, care for, train, play with, and accessorize in various ways. Eventually, you could even own a green-furred dog who wears a baseball cap and a bandana, once youíve unlocked enough options.

A variety of challenges bring your pet skills to the forefront as you teach your animal tricks, from the basic sit command to pulling off a back flip. Donít forget to praise your pet and give it treats and head rubs (click and hold the mouse, then move it around to simulate touching your pet) for a job well done. You can snap photos of your petsí adventures and view them in the journal, where you can also write notes about their lives.

During your petís adventures, youíll unlock 72 toys, dress-up options, pieces of furniture, and other items. Check your journal to see how far youíve gotten. In the dress-up area in the living room, youíll eventually have all manner of accessories available, including off-beat fur colors (red, anyone?) unique footwear and headgear (a propeller beanie is always a fun choice), intriguing collars and other neckwear, and more.
