Fetch is the story of a boy, his dog, and a bunch of arcade games living in a futuristic sci-fi world where robots and mega-corporations rule. A point-and-click adventure at its heart, Fetch is littered with so much gorgeous artwork and creative elements that its world springs to life, making it feel almost like a free-to-roam sandbox game.
Tap the screen to walk around the world or to interact with objects and bits of scenery. A great number of things are placed simply to be toyed with, like knocking signs around, popping bubbles, or nudging debris on the ground. Not everything is just window dressing, though, and you'll need to work with plenty of puzzles by flipping switches, lowering ladders and the like. You'll run across dogs that need to be rescued as well as collars to collect, achievements to get, and arcade games to play, all while attempting to rescue your dog and figure out why this Embark company is kidnapping so many puppies!
Fetch throws a lot of great ideas into a single pot, which would normally spell doom for a casual mobile game. That certain'y isn't the case here, of course, as the experience is nearly flawless from beginning to end. The production values are also extremely high, which really isn't a surprise considering the game was developed by Big Fish Games. Even with its dystopian setting, Fetch is a completely captivating game that keeps you in a constant state of craving to see what the next puzzle will bring!
