iOS game review: Pet Pat - New York iPhone Games

Yo. These pets are weird, bro. Let's pet them.

"Weird" artwork in video games and cartoons has been used fairly often for years.

The beauty in the creativity behind these works is the dichotomy between what people consider "normal" and "alternative" -- or whatever other name they want to give stuff that isn't what they're used to seeing.

While many popular games focus on realism and beautiful scenes, New York-based app development company, Goodnight Games, is exploring the wonderful world of oddball artwork in its games.

And the company's latest creation, Pet Pat on iOS and Android, might be its "weirdest" title yet.

The object of the game is to pet as many cute animals as possible. In order to do that, a user must use various actions to pet them before time runs out and the animals start to cry.

Petting the animals consists of tapping, holding or swiping a code of numbers in order.

The game serves up to three pets at a time, so keeping up with petting the critters before time expires becomes pretty challenging after a few minutes of gameplay.

The level progression is very consistent and well thought-out, and the bosses in the game are definitely challenging enough to be considered bosses.

Pet Pat marks the fourth release from Goodnight Games, a company that prides itself on selling its games for 99 cents with no in-app purchases or advertisements.

The developers said they draw their inspiration from things around them, but they'll always have the memories from the great console games of the 90s, and they put a lot of value in buying a game and actually not being interrupted to buy more stuff or see ads.

Overall, Pet Pat offers fast-paced fun and the unique artwork that people in NYC indie gaming scene have come to expect from the team at Goodnight Games. It's definitely worth checking out for 99 cents, and there's always the added bonus of them not soliciting you with in-app purchase offers and ads, too.

Donald Sutherland Cast in 'The Hunger Games'

And of course he's proved he has great range as an actor in other movies like MASH, The Italian Job, Ordinary People, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Don't Look Now, JFK, and Animal House, to name a few films from his prolific career.

So Hunger Games fans, do you think Donald Sutherland was a good choice? And who should play fellow villain President Coin? Be sure to sound off in the comments!

President Snow is a conniving, cold-blooded killer in The Hunger Games, and the Panem leader has no problem with slaughtering children when needed to further his agenda. So not only does he have experience as a villain, Donald Sutherland has experience playing authoritative characters. Snow is also described as having a snake-like appearance and possibly enhanced lips, so Sutherland might have to undergo a bit of movie makeup magic to look more like the character portrayed in the books in order to appease hardcore fans of the series.

Donald Sutherland managed to snag one of the last remaining big roles in The Hunger Games as President Snow.

So The Hunger Games all-star cast is rounding out rather nicely with another recent unexpected but perfect choice in Woody Harrelson as Haymitch. The cast also includes Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, Liam Hemsworth as Gale, Lenny Kravitz as Cinna, Elizabeth Banks as Effie, Wes Bentley as Seneca Crane, and Stanley Tucci as Caesar Flickerman. The female villain role of President Coin is yet to be cast, so it should be interesting to see who lands that coveted part (Tilda Swinton would be perfect!).


Donald SutherlandAppearance aside, Sutherland is yet another brilliant and surprising casting choice. The actor can play cruel and calculated very well, having starred as a sadistic Nazi spy in Eye of the Needle; a ruthless warden in Lock Up; and a murderous fascist leader in 1900
