Nokia Critters - a digital pet game for Nokia X2-01 and C3

By

Nokia’s Message Critters - a cool app that features cute digital creatures that you can dress and accessorize according to your preference - gives a new fun twist on your Nokia X2 and C3 smartphones.

Basically, this application is like a tamagotchi game for nokia phones, but instead of having a dinosaur, a cat, a dog or some other kind of creatures, nokia critters is in humanoid form that you can customize the looks by changing clothes and accessories. Basic actions for virtual pets also applies such as feeding, taking a bath, medicine etc.

You can play the mini games included on the app
1. Card Chaos - Rearrange the cards in the grid so that their number values sum up to 15 on all sides. If you finish the grid before the time runs out, you will earn Critter points. The fewer swaps you make, the more Critter points you earn!
2. Jewel Juggle - Create as many vertical or horizontal matches of 3 or more objects as you can before the time runs out. The more objects you match, the more Critter Points for you.
3. Word Winder - Rearrange the jumbled letters to form one word. Form as many words as you can within the given time limit to earn more Critter Points

You will only able to earn points by sending text messages using the application, points earned can be used to buy clothes and accessories for your pet.
I'm not sure though if the text messages should come from the application (which is a bad thing for pinoys who are very frugal in spending prepaid/postpaid credits) or any text messages sent to any of your contacts (this is a great thing since you also get something from using your phone's text messaging functionality) to earn points.

Only for Nokia X2-01 and C3
