The phones of the Pocket Gamer team are groaning under the weight of all the virtual dog games that have recently come out. So we'd be forgiven for being a bit jaded about the mobile pets genre.
However, the recently-announced Mo-Pets has revived us, not least because it's not just about dogs. You can also nurture cats, monkeys and ferrets. Plus there's going to be connected features so you can go online and have your pet compete against other players'.
The game is being published by Sony BMG Music, and developed by Floodgate Entertainment. We talked to Matt Bellows, general manager at Floodgate, to find out more.
