Play OverviewPlay Overview

Wobbledogs (2022) is a pet simulation where your dogs not only need care but are rapidly mutating different behaviours and appetites. You breed new dogs (from eggs), create and decorate a home for them, feed them and see how they evolve.

You play by creating an environment for your dogs to thrive in and slowly earn more furnishings and decorations to give your pets a relaxing place to sleep and play. As you combine different breeds you can create unique evolutions of different canine friends.

As they age, the simulated genetics system means they periodically evolve and mutate. The result is a combination of their genetics and the foods they eat to fill their guts. By paying attention to the petri-dish display of the contents of the dog's stomach you can slowly learn the impact of these different elements so you can craft and mould them to your idea of the perfect pet.

There are no specific goals, so you are free to play the game any way you want. But unlike other virtual pet games, your choices about diet and breeding result in a teeming ecosystem with life (and emergent behaviours) all its own. The dogs start out relatively normal but mutate and behave in surprising ways as the game progresses and their evolutionary lines advance.

The result is a game that is fun to observe but really comes into its own as you interact with the dogs to influence how things develop. Maybe you pet them to relieve some stress, toss a pup around to watch it tumble through the pen, or help them get unstuck from a tight space. Whatever you do has an impact and builds a bond between you and your canine friend.

Rated PEGI 3.

The dogs can eat the cocoons they hatch from as well as poo and teeth. When the dogs get old (they last about an hour of active gameplay time) and die they explode into body part pieces that can be eaten by the other dogs. The game alerts you when your dog is about to die and asks if you want to move the camera to the dog for its final moments. They can then come back as ghosts. You can choose to put your dogs into storage to preserve them (to keep breeding them) and there is also a setting to change the dog's lifespan or turn off ageing.

Skill Level

5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. Young players can enjoy this, although you do need to think about the consequences of how you treat and breed your dogs if you want to get the most out of the game. It's still a lot of fun just to play around with the evolving dogs.
