The downside of the game, for us at least, was the fact that we clearly weren't even close to its intended audience as the difficulty takes the minds of children into account, and we'll say that younger children would probably be fascinated throughout. The framing of being an adult looking back into the realm of nostalgic memories, however, could lessen the experience for that same audience somewhat. It's hard to pinpoint who the game is for, even though it's charming and competently developed.
Stolen Pets is a very short game, so to say much more about it would be to spoil things. There's not too much replayability either, beyond finding each location's hidden coins, but these are pretty easy to spot. That it's over so quickly would be a problem if it wasn't so darn adorable. Joyous, imaginative, and full of personality, this is sure to bring a smile to all who play it.
Gamers are looking for memorable, thought out experiences, and The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets sticks the landing. Titles like this are thought provoking, delightful experiences that live long in the memory. Although gameplay is simple, and once all aspects have been completed is unlikely to be revisited as a solo effort, this is going to be the VR benchmark for introducing a younger, as well as quirkier audience to what the little black headset can achieve with enough love and care behind it.
