Mindscape has launched three new games for the Nintendo DS that will give children and adults a chance to take care of various animals without all the fuss.

Mindscapes Asia Pacific’s Managing Director, Tony Hughes said, “These new pet games for Nintendo DS are the perfect combination of entertainment and education. We’ve really tried to continue the Mindscape tradition of creating quality ‘edutainment’ games that are entertaining enough to capture children’s imaginations, whist still being educational enough to reassure parents.

Pet Vet

In Pet Vet, users will be given the role of a fully trained vet in a brand new practice, whose skills are needed to take special care of all the sick animals in the area. The scenarios have all been written by real-life vets and range from treating the friendly Labrador that has been hurt by a car, to the sleepy turtle who has gone off his food.

Game Features:
– 30 poor pets designed with 3D graphics need your care: French Labrador, Dalmatian, Siamese cat, hamster, parrot, St. Bernard, and more
– Ask the pet owners questions, diagnose the problems and use realistic medical instruments to treat the animals, change their bandages, put them on an IV, give them a vaccination, administer their treatment, and pamper them.
– Fun quizzes with 150 questions and 3 difficulty levels to test and improve your knowledge of animals
