  • Summary: Gumpers the Alien wakes up. He's all alone. He's not at home anymore… he's in a gigantic spaceship! Where is Tommy, his human friend? Where are his alien friends?! What happened?
    The whole gang's been captured by the Robotix, who've been hijacking creatures from all over the universe to
    build the biggest zoo in the galaxy. When they came to take specimens from the Earth, they knew that Tommy the Human would be an easy target. but what they didn't know was that the weirdest aliens around had made friends with him and were living in his home! Gumpers now has to find his Alien friends, rescue Tommy and get back to Earth…. All five eccentric and wacky Pet Aliens need to work together using their unique abilities to get Tommy home safely. Its time for some Pet Alien action! Play and interact with Gumpers, Dinko, Swanky, Flip and Scruffy as you help them find their way around the giant spaceship on their rescue mission. Your main objective - to find the way through each level to the exit. That's not easy when each level is filled with puzzles, obstacles and clever enemies - in other words - teamwork is inalienable!

  1. When the puzzles get tough, just remember - don't panic! [Sept 2007, p.89]
  2. A tidy little package. [Oct 2007, p.70]
  3. Designed for kids, the well presented Pet Alien provides a gentle puzzle-based experience that should appeal to a wider audience than just those who enjoy the TV show.
  4. 50
    While you can find some enjoyment out of Pet Aliens, the overall product is fairly average despite its high points. Probably one for the die-hard fans only.
  5. It’s just too basic and simplistic for big kids. There’s also no multiplayer of any kind and the five mini-games, which range from a shell game to a take on Simon Says that uses burp and fart sounds, won’t add much life.
  6. Owning pet aliens is not as exciting or interesting as it sounds.
  7. 35
    A young fan of the TV show could theoretically search out a modicum of fun from this game, and perhaps they would find the puzzles more brow-furrow worthy. Maybe. I have a feeling, though, that this one will make its way swiftly to the bargain bins.
