What it is: an interactive app to look after your virtual cub.

What you do with it: choose a cub, name it and start the game. There are many different activities (training, playing, taking pictures, feeding etc.). For each completed task you earn points, which can be exchanged in the 'shop' for food, drink, toys or other accessories for your cub. The longer you play the more options you have. You can transfer data to/from your Xbox 360.

What we liked:overall concept, beautiful graphics and animations, strong interactivity and very sweet 'responsive' characters, number of activities. The idea of learning to look after your pet through fun. Some options available only after completing some tasks (to get some objects or reveal next location you have to work with your pet). 'Take a photo' feature has some nice options like importing pictures from the library on your device.

What we didn't like:no spoken instructions (navigation and operation could require parental assistance, at least at the beginning and for younger children). Not much educational value (e.g. there are no informations about each type of cub).
