Nintendogs + Cats is a Strategy game available on the 3DS. It can be played in 3d modes.
Nintendogs + Cats is a Strategy game. Strategy games provide experiences that require quick thinking, and forward planning from the gamer. They combine the unfolding tactics of classic games like chess, with more recent board games such as Risk. Usually focusing on a theatre of war context, players enjoy the tactical overview of the battle these games provide.
Nintendogs + Cats can be played in a 3d mode. These types of games use shuttered, polarised or even red/green glasses technology to create a 3D visual experience. This not only adds depth and changes how the game looks, but also opens up new camera views and play styles. The PS3 supports 3DTV's and the 3DS provides a top screen that enables glasses free 3D output.
Nintendogs + Cats does more than add felines in the 3DS's socially aware, Mii enabled version of the popular DS brand. And of course, the lovely little creatures are now all in spectacle free 3D.
Nintendogs was a big part of convincing us that the DS's features could actually make a difference to game play. In a single stroke it combined microphone, touch screen and dual screens to create a creature care experience more endearing than anything before.
