Talking Duke Dog for iPhone/iPad
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Remember Gigapets and other personal, electronic pet games back in the late 90s? Those have mostly dissipated from the market. However, personalized cutesy pet apps have popped up across the new mobile device stores, especially for iOS.
With Talking Duke Dog, users get a free, virtual pet on their iOS device that they can interact with. There is a handy list of gestures that Duke can react to under the Info button. For starters, try tapping Duke across his scruffy pet self. He’ll react in different ways based on location.
You can pet him, or tap his belly. Then, turn your volume up and speak to him. He’ll repeat back your words, albeit in a funny voice. Finally, take a look at the awesome menu of animation options on the right-hand side of the screen. Here, you can choose from loads of fun animations for Duke to do. Running to the toilet, riding a cat, dancing to music, and much, much more.
You can remove the ads and unlock all options for just a buck. Nice to see a developer offering a very reasonable low cost single IAP instead of forcing you to purchase more ‘packs’ to get the entire app. Duke is hilarious and does all sorts of tricks that would make a Gigapet of yesteryear jealous!
Duke is a fully animated, pseudo 3D dog, on your iOS screen. His animations look fluid and sharp, as do the background graphics. The entire app presentation is quite slick and really fits in well with the theme of a personalized pet goofy dog.
As mentioned earlier, there is also a nice info screen with many of the tap commands listed, making sure you get the full experience with Duke!
Talking Duke Dog is a solid iOS app. With a great range of animations and funny tricks, Duke is sure to please audiences both young and old. Furthermore, this free app doesn’t force you to purchase additional in-app items.
Instead, the developer makes it possible to earn points and unlock more animations without costing you a cent. Big props to Cloudburst games on yet another successful pet app, this time with Talking Duke Dog for iOS!
Talking Duke Dog iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
