Critic Reviews for Little Friends: Dogs & Cats

Little Friends: Dogs and Cats isn’t the competent Nintendogs alternative many were likely hoping for. While putting a summer hat on a Shiba and listening to its adorable howls is pleasant enough, there isn’t enough to do with any of its animals aside from throwing objects and petting them.

Paired with a progression system that takes more away from the genre than it actually brings and the absence of any real element of replayability, there's not much backing up the areas where Little Friends excels.

Little Friends: Dogs & Cats is a game that will appeal to animal lovers who miss the days of Nintendogs. While it does have some adorable breeds and some cute customization options, it won't appeal to those that want to take care of their pets for long periods of time.

Overall, Little Friends: Dogs & Cats has some fun to offer, and what little it does offer is well executed.

Little Friends: Dogs & Cats is a bit of a wasted opportunity. Too few content, too little gameplay, for a game that could have become the new Nintendogs.

Little Friends: Dogs & Cats invites comparisons with the Nintendogs series with its structure and overall presentation. However, once you've enjoyed petting your fill of digital 'good bois', you'll be left marvelling at how little there is to do even compared to that most lightweight (though fondly remembered) of Nintendo offerings.
