Really fun game

Pou is a really fun game, I'm 13 and I enjoy it. The mini games are fun and I really like caring for, playing with and feeding my alien thing! I always try to get achievements etc also. Only problem for young kids is if they abandon their alien or the e-mail thing. This is a really good game and teaches about responsibility so go for it!

Fun range of puzzle and arcade-style games for kids and adults -

Pou combines a cute little creature that players must care for with a variety of mini-games that earn points you can spend on food and other fun accessories for your pou. My 5-year old is amazingly good at sky jump, one of the mini games, and she loves picking new wallpaper for pou's room. There are lots of mind-bending puzzle games that will challenge and entertain kids and adults. It's a great little diversion (but watch out, the app sometimes makes your phone sound like it has gas if you leave notifications turned on).

My kids love this game and it seems harmless enough. However, twice now there have been COMPLETELY inappropriate profile pics where my kids could see them. Absolutely pornographic. Idk if there's a place to report this, or if anything can be done. We deleted the game, though maybe if you never play online this isn't an issue.

It's EPIC!

It has games like Sudoku and Pou Words (You match up letters to spell the word), and it has a memory game, which is good for learning. When you get a little account on it, you dont have profile pictures or a profile page, you can just visit each others pou's and comment on their pou using given comments like ''Nice House''

Fanstastic for all ages!

Pou is a fun game for kids and adults! I'm 11 and I love it! Not innapropriate at all. You can name your Pou some innapropriate things and theres some hacks where you can change your Pou photo. If you don't play online your completely safe!

Good game

This game is really good! Whoever hates this game probably has never played it before. The reviewer said the Pou can "starve to death". However, this isn't true. The Pou doesn't die. People who have an email address can keep the same Pou forever. You can visit other people's Pous and give them a "like", which increases the Pou's popularity. The only con? Hackers. These guys hack the high scores on the minigames, such as Sky Jump, which can be hacked to 5999. They also have more than a million likers because of these scores. But, overall, this is a good game.
