Take care of an alien pet and go on adventures with this virtual pet game for Android phones and tablets.

Pou might look like, well, poo, but this fun alien pet game for Android has a lot to offer! Like other games in the genre you’ll have to feed and play with your pet, but you’ll also be able to play with others and earn double points toward rewards.

Speaking of rewards, there are a lot of them in the game. You’ll be able to earn accessories for your pet, wallpapers, outfits, and even entire environments to help keep them comfortable and add a new dimension of gameplay to the game.

The mini-games are a lot of fun to play and it doesn’t take a lot of skill or time to pick up on them. Most of these games are games you’ve probably played before on Facebook, just “Pou-ified” to match the tongue-in-cheek poo theme of the rest of the game.

One very inventive feature of this game is the developers gave your pet the ability to mimic anything you say. Talk to your pet with the chat button and some of what you say will be played back at you in a funny voice; it’s not much, but it’s one of the fun little touches that make this game stand out.

While there’s a lot to like about this game, it needs to be said that it does get a little annoying after a while. The graphics are on the crude side and can feel cheap at times but this is a game about an alien poop that you feed and play games with, so it’s good to keep your expectations in line.

Other than that though, this game has no rough language or violence and offers dozens of hours of fun before it gets boring. If you want a way to kill some time for you or your kids, this free virtual pet game for Android is a pretty good choice!

Pros

  • Play Games Alone and with FriendsPlay alone with your Pou (no pun intended!) or team up with friends to unlock new levels.
  • Earn Accessories, Wallpapers, Outfits and More Every game you complete unlocks new items, rewards and environments for your Pou.
  • Fun and Intuitive Gameplay The game is easy to pick up, not so easy to put down though!
  • New Mimic Feature Now you can talk to your Pou and it’ll repeat everything you say in a funny voice!
  • Now with Push Notifications Get alerts when new games are available, updates and more.

Cons

  • Can Get a Little Repetitive The game is a lot of fun but there’s only so far you can go with a little “alien” Pou on your screen.
