Great gameplay, but pet theme lures kids too young to play.

Love this game but have reached a point where it is no longer entertaining. The obstacles would work but I can't afford to keep buying tools so I guess its time to hang up my mission.

Its okay until its not. I give up.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
age 10+

Not enough levels

I go through the levels quickly and have to wait an entire week before they update new levels.I uninstalled this's too slow

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (3):
Kids say (1):

PET RESCUE SAGA looks and acts a lot like a game for a young child. Its art style and very gentle learning curve seem well suited for younger players. But hidden in the license agreement is the disclaimer that it's meant for players 13 and older. This, along with the game's Facebook pushes, in-app purchases, and addictive quality should serve as a red flag for parents.

For older players, though, there's a lot to like. The game isn't as frustratingly hard as Candy Crush Saga (from the same developer), but it is still challenging enough to keep your attention. And, as with Candy Crush Saga, it's addictive enough to keep you coming back again (and again and again).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
