Good news for Neko Atsume fans; a new game from the same developer has hit the shelves! This app is based on Spoon Pets from Sega, which are toy pets that can wiggle onto spoons and like to live in cups. Or just watch this video if my last sentence didn’t make sense ;)
The game is in Japanese, but especially if you are familiar with Neko Atsume, you can play it with no Japanese knowledge. Once you start the game you’ll receive a nice amount of silver and golden spoons. This is the currency to ‘pay’ with, like the fish in Neko Atsume. You’d best start by spending spoons on furniture and toys to decorate your house with. Just click the shopping cart and affirm your purchase with the left button (saying ‘yes’, whereas the right button says ‘no’). Don’t forget to place some food in your house as this will attract pets.
Now close the game and wait a while, hopefully there will be Spoon Pets visiting once you return.
When the pets have left, they’ll hand you silver or even golden spoons as a way to say ‘thank you’. You also get to see them inside your ‘pet book’.
There are three types of land expansions (available through the ‘star’ button in the menu), that look very cute. The first one – as pictured below – will cost you 120 golden spoons. You can also get golden spoons by trading silver spoons (500S = 10G) or by buying them as an in app purchase (€0.99 = 60G). At the moment I’m saving up my silver spoons ^_^
The main difference with Neko Atsume is that there are less items available and that you can apparently dress up the Spoon Pets. But I haven’t figured out how that works yet.
You can download the game for free on Apple iTunes or Google Play.
