Take your healing hands and kind spirit down under! THQs educational vet game is back, but is the latest game new enough to stop it from being repeatitive?

There are many animal games for the DS floating around, but not many of them will actually prepare you for having a real pet. The Paws & Claws Pet Vet series has always been great for learning about the things that makes our furry friends ill and how to remedy it. Now, with Paws & Claws Pet Vet Australian Adventure, you can save and learn about the unique creatures of the southern continent.


A Different Kind of Vet

In the game, you play the role of a vet. There is not much story to it, you simply run a vet clinic and every day you get a report of injured or sick animals on your PDA and you head out on your SUV to heal them.


You assess sick animals by tapping the touch screen at various points until you get a reaction. Once the diagnosis is complete, you will be instructed on how to heal the animal. Sometimes you can just cure the creature on the spot, but sometimes you will need to take it back to the clinic for surgery.


You earn money for healing animals and the cash can be used to buy more supplies or to expand your business. Eventually, you will lead safaris and can earn cash that way as well.


Limited Choices on the Small Continent

While there are a lot of clothes to choose from for your character, the actual look of the character cannot be changed much. In terms of animals, there are only six different animals that you interact with, including horses, koala bears, kangaroos, and wombats.


Most of the time you will be following the tasks listed out for you on your PDA. The game gets repeatitive pretty fast, but the entire experience is still very educational. This game is recommended for aspiring vets and animal lovers in general.

Or maybe I'm just dumb.  When it's the middle of the night and you can't fall asleep so you go on KW to tire your eyes it and end up not getting any sleep at all No, because I know that blue light tricks both your eyes and your brain into thinking it's daytime. You should stay off screens for at least an hour before sleeping, but, I get on at night anyways XD You see a text from your friend, send them one back, and then realize it's about 3 am. You then panic and think  "HOW DO I GET THIS STUPID TEXT BACKKKKKK?!"
