It seems that every year there is a number one Christmas present that every child wants to get hold of. Throughout the mid-nineties, Tamagochis, along with a number of other virtual pets hit the shelves. The public went wild for them. Even though they aren’t as popular as they originally were, they still lurk on the shelves of high street shops. The product’s popularity sent a number of software houses into virtual pet development. Among the hoards of developers is Neechez Software, producers of 3D pets.
Volume 2 of Pets 3D actually includes two games, Zap the Alien, and Millennium Bug. Essentially, the two games are very similar to each other, the only significant difference being the game’s environment. Not surprisingly, the Millennium Bug version takes place inside the guts of a home computer, in which you must keep a small ant-like creature happy and healthy. The other, Zap the Alien, takes place in a space environment. However, the two versions still have the same goals. You will be responsible for their health, happiness, and general upbringing. If you take good care of your bug and alien, the two could last for as long as 60 days in real-time. That’s 60 years in bug time, you know.
