This is a freemium game review, in which we give our impressions immediately after booting a game up, again after three days, and finally after seven days. That's what the strange sub-headings are all about.
Another week, another review of a freemium Gameloft game based on a super-popular children's licence. Where last week my time was filled with sparkly ponies, this week I've been given lots of different types of animals to care for, all the while building seriously lovely houses for them to live in.
Littlest Pet Shop's routes to success are paved with crummy video ads for other freemium games, or painfully slow, tiringly repetitive grind. It looks lovely, but so do the adverts on TV, and you don't enjoy wasting your time watching tens of those to get to the content you want, do you?
