An adventure involving a boy and his dog becomes engrossing
Fetch starts as the simple story of a boy and his dog. But it quickly changes into a puzzlefilled adventure that puts you on a quest to reunite them and gives you a chance to explore the game’s somewhat dystopian setting.
Not that this game is dark — if anything, it feels like playing through a Pixar movie, thanks to its cartoon aesthetic and whimsical touches.
Players can tap on screens, arcade cabinets, fliers and other things around you to get information about where to go and what to do.
The full game costs money to unlock, but you get a pretty good taste of the game before you buy.
If you can keep yourself from getting too immersed in the story, you can play free — but it is a little hard to keep your heartstrings from feeling a pull.
Free to download, for iOS and Android; $5 to unlock the full game.
