Gameplay:

This game allows you (or your children most likely) to raise “peaves” in cardboard boxes. Peaves need to be fed and played with, as well as shaked to survive and evolve.

Pet Peaves Monsters has 12 unique peave species which have different characteristics and evolving patterns. In this game you can play music to your peave, teach it to play catch, and transform it into a better peave.

An interesting thing about this game is that you can battle peaves with your friends across multiple devices. You put your iPhones, iPads and iPod touches next to each other, and then the game looks as if it’s being played across all of them.

If a peave attacks another peave for example with a shot of a beam, it will shoot out of the screen of one iDevice and then appear on the other screen.

 

Why this Game Isn’t Worth $.01 let alone $1.99

While playing one of my peaves made really annoying sounds, which sounded inappropriate. I don’t think I’m imagining things when I tell you my “child” peave was moaning and groaning in ways that just shouldn’t be done.

You can listen to what I mean in the video review about. But even if you don’t agree with the sound being inappropriate, you’ll agree that it’s annoying. My peave would keep moaning and it got really annoying really quickly.

I figured this game is for kids so I shouldn’t give it a bad rap. Honestly, if you’re paying $1.99 for your kid to lock himself in a room and feed a moaning peave grubs, then you need to re-evaluate the 21st century. Are kids any better off playing by themselves (Okay… The game has multiplayer.  That’s not really going to help anything) than they are going outside?

Instead of raising virtual moaning peaves on in-app purchased virtual coins, then why not have your kid raise a real pet or caterpillar or something? You don’t have to go out and buy a $400 hamster and cage. But even keeping a caterpillar in a jar is more intuitive than Pet Peaves Monsters.

Instead of buying Pet Peaves Monsters, you’d be better off buying Spore for your kid. Even though they’re both games, Pet Peaves Monsters is just useless.

However what I found out by reading the iTunes reviews was that the majority of people playing this game were adults. In that case you’re already grown up, so you can choose whether you want to play with a real dog or a moaning pet peeve. TV, fishing, and pet peaves are all considered hobbies. You can’t really tell an adult how to spend their time.

For a child though, Pet Peaves Monsters is complexly useless.

 

Conclusion:

If growing virtual peaves that have “infinite colors and patterns” sounds fun to you, then go ahead and spend $2 and 10+ hours on this game. 785 other people have done the same exact thing, so why shouldn’t you?
