Sushi’s mama loves getting free stuff, so she was very pleased with Pet Society’s latest feature—the Treasure Hunt.
The Treasure hunt arms you with a pair of shovels and a chance to find some new items—such as a forest aquarium or a dinosaur skeleton—that aren’t available anywhere else in Pet Society.
Mama went to work right away. She dug and dug, and got messages that said, “Treasure Nearby,” or “Treasure Very Close!”
This reminded her of the Hot-and-Cold game she used to play with Sushi when he was a kid. She would hide something and Sushi would try to find it. When Sushi got close to the item, she’d call out, “You’re getting warm!” When he was far away, she’d shout, “Cold! Ice cold!”
Those were good times. But Sushi is old and out of the house now. He hardly ever calls her, and is doing God-knows-what, the good-for-nothing ingrate.
Anyhow, getting back to the Treasure Hunt, to start digging for your own treasure, click on the icon at the bottom of your home screen:
Make your way over to the Town Forest:
You’ll get two shovels and several shots at digging for goodies. Sushi’s mama hit pay dirt with a summer couch. But then she ran out of shovels and the game asked her to buy more.
Mama thought this sign said 3,000 coins, and said, “No way, José!” (Actually, she said, “No fu*king way,” but since some children read this blog, we censored her.)
Only later did Sushi’s mama realize that the additional shovels cost only 300 coins.
Still, she is done digging for the day. She set up her new summer couch and is patiently waiting for her son to come and visit.
Verdict: Overall, we really like the new Treasure Hunt feature, and give it 4.5 out of 5 paws. Unlike some of the more recent free gift-giving options, this doesn’t take us away from the game. Also, some of the items are down-right impressive. (See the huge dinosaur fossil below.) The Treasure Hunt is also a nice substitute for fishing, which as our last post showed, is practically dead.
