UPDATE April 23, 2009: After getting an inappropriate comment on this article
this morning, my wife and I have decided to no longer play that game. We’re over them. Any links to our SuperPoke Pets sites are no longer active
and should be considered dead. Why should we pay for that sort of
attitude from a company? We’re voting with our money and the answer
is: “No thank you.”
I think I joined SuperPoke Pets at a good time because last week SuperPoke introduced a new feature.
Now, instead of endlessly clicking to earn a few, measly, coins per day — you can “buy” gold with your credit card to really dude-out your digs!
Is it cheating to buy gold? Or are you just being smart and biding your SuperPoke Pets time with a smarter and more aesthetic meme?
I’m crazy for the badges you can earn. They just sort of pop up and surprise you!
You can still get a social networking delight by poking your friends’ pets to earn coins and they, in turn, will poke your pet back with playing!
Here’s Janna’s SuperPoke Pet frog, Slippy.
The background is animated as it scrolls by giving you the illusion of movement down the street.
Janna decorated her SuperPoke Pets Place with coins earned and “gold gifts” from me:
Poor Gordon’s sheeple Herschel is always sad and un-played with every time I visit to take him for a ride on the swing.
As you can see, Gordon has many plushies, and when he has 25 plushies, he will get a new badge, and I am already quite jealous of his fine collection!
A new puppy is always ready for a bath and feeding!
If you have no idea what a SuperPoke Pet is — then I warn you to STAY AWAY — if you start clicking on “playdate” or “clean” or “tickle” or “feed” you will be: UNABLE TO STOP!
If, however, you’re already SuperPoke Pets hooked, Bonky is waiting for his playdate with you on Facebook.
