My Talking Tom is a free downloadable virtual pet game that is recommended for players of all ages because it is easy to pick up and play and the guessing games and repetitive nature of the game make it enjoyable even for the youngest players, according to Softonic. The game features the pet cat Tom, who is dependent on the player to make him happy by feeding, petting, playing and taking care of him. Updated versions of the game offer many interactive features.
The My Talking Tom game allows users to customize the pet's appearance and house while promoting fun and virtual pet responsibility; the more it is played, the more Tom grows, thrives and becomes part of everyday life. The game appeals to a wide audience from toddlers to teens, notes Famigo. Interactive games and videos are available, too. The game's premise is to meet the virtual pet's needs: entertainment, food, bladder and tiredness, all represented by a depleting meter that must be refilled.
