beta tester

I was a beta tester of this game and loved it due to some personal problems I could not spend the time after 1 yr to keep my game going. I think kids will love this I had my (then) 5 yr old helping make decisions on the animals breeding to make the eggs and the color were very eye catching...most of the players were quite nice and my family had a great time with it...

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Faunasphere is a browser-based game so computer requirements are relatively low, making it easily accessible. It is simple to find things to do because in each area of the world there are Goal Stations where players pick up quests. Players often team up to accomplish the harder goals but most of the multi-player interaction is done out of the game, in the forums, where players ask for eggs or trade eggs. The community is friendly, helpful, and generous in not just trading, but actually giving eggs to each other. But getting eggs to others requires traveling to another's Faunasphere, not an easy task within this game since you can only travel to others on a Friend's list.

While this game can be played for free, to get the most out of the breeding game, players need to subscribe to the game. As it is a casual game, the cost of subscription is relatively low and the game itself is not fast-paced and goals can be accomplished in 15 minute chunks of time.

Online interaction: Chat is open chat with no restrictions except for language filters. However, most of the interaction actually take place on the forums rather than in the game. Because trading of eggs to breed new Fauna tends to start in the forums and requires being added to another's friend list within the game, kids may be tempted to exchange personal information.

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.
