Doggie Dash

Walter and Scarlet’s first pet spa Doggie Dash is a sim time management Mac game for children and casual gamers. There is a daily goal you must meet to pass a level (there are 50 levels) and 20 upgrades.

The play is to click on the pet at the entrance, above the pet’s head will show you what they want done, click on the correct station and when finished Walter will pick the pet up and take it to the counter to be paid. The 3 stations are the bath, trim and pampering. When you have enough money, you can buy upgrades for more stations to speed up your procedures and earn money faster.

There are 2 modes of play: Story and Endless Shift. The story is the tale of Walter and Scarlet trying to make a living running a pet spa and meeting daily goals...

Fish Tycoon

I love this Mac game. Fish Tycoon is like an adult Tamogotchi the children’s game developed by Bandai in the 1990s. I killed mine several times over when I was a kid. You have to take care of your aquarium or your fish will die also. The sim play is done in real time. You can leave the game for a day, and the play has progressed to a new level without you. Fish Tycoon is a very different type of play. The fish move and look real, and it will teach you what kind of fish you have in your tank, but the game is so laid back you can go about your own life and the fish will swim in your tank. There is a story to this play, but I didn’t get into it much. The goal is to breed your fish and find 7 magic fish.

Don’t spend your initial $300...
