Virtual pets were all the rage in the early '90s, but the rise of the mobile phone put an end to that.

If you still crave a little creature to look after, though, Animentals might be able to help.

In this game, you are given a disturbed critter in need of some TLC.

You'll have to feed it, wash it, and make sure it gets the right medicine, then.

There are mini-games to play to ensure your animental doesn't get too bored, too. All presented in a cute cartoon style that it's hard not to like.

It might not be up everyone's street, and it is aimed at younger gamers, but there's still a lot to like about Animentals.
