Legacy Interactive's Pet Pals: Animal Doctor for Wii™ Ships to Retail Today
LOS ANGELES, CA (November 4, 2008) ­ Casual games developer and distributor Legacy Interactive today announced that their award-winning vet simulation game, Pet Pals: Animal Doctor, is now available for Wii.

Pet Pals: Animal Doctor gives animal lovers and aspiring animal doctors the chance to assume the role of a veterinarian. The simulation videogame is comprised of 30 true-to-life medical cases where players treat multiple animal patients brought in for minor problems like sunburn, cuts and infections to more serious ailments like diabetes, tumors and snakebites.

Players heal over 30 animals, including a Saint Bernard, a Shetland pony, rabbits, turtles, hamsters, clown fish, and many more familiar and exotic breeds. The healing is done using an assortment of realistic medical tools that, for the first time, are available via the Wii Remote, making it seem as if players are performing actual surgeries when they are holding the
controller and Nunchuk in their hands.

The situations that the players encounter are incredibly interesting yet very realistic. For example serious conditions such as, a cat having a seizure or a German Sheppard with a bone tumor; and more out of the ordinary cases like a bullfrog with a sunburn. First, the players will listen to a short introduction from the owner about the animals¹ problem and then they
choose which three questions are the more relevant to ask out of five possible questions. The players then have to decide a plan of action and pick the correct tools in order, out of more than 50, to best cure their animal patient.

Gamers also get to care for pets in recovery where they are responsible for the animals¹ health, grooming and food. In this area they can also play with the pets and provide some much needed TLC.

The game offers three different levels of play along with mini games, including puzzles and matching games, as well as a variety of interesting animal trivia. As the game progresses, players are rewarded with job promotions, awards, and new game features as it gives the player the feeling of actually being a vet in a practice.

³Pet Pals: Animal Doctor is great for pet-lovers, not only do they get to treat animals, but the players also learn helpful facts about pet diseases,² Ariella Lehrer, President and CEO, Legacy Interactive. ³This is our first foree onto this platform and players will get a game that is not only fun to play, but that also takes full advantage of Wii¹s unique capabilities.²

Available at retailers nationwide, Pet Pals: Animal Doctor is rated E 10+ and has an MSRP of $29.99. For more information visit legacygames.com.
