Eliminate and Touch Pets: Dogs Are Finally Released (in Canada), Both Free!!

EDIT: Eliminate is now out for free WORLDWIDE!

The extremely anticipated titles, Eliminate, and Touch Pets: Dogs, by ngmoco:), have finally arrived in Canada. And they're both FREE. If you don't know what they are, let me catch you up:

  • Eliminate is a first person shooter, and you are a robot employee of Arsenal Megacorp, and must test out their weapons, armor, and various other items in any of 5 different arenas. The main game mode is worldwide online multiplayer, and the game is released in Canada first to test out the servers. Since the game is free, ngmoco:) must have a form of income, right? Well, to earn credits online, to buy and upgrade your suits/weapons, you have to have energy at the time. You can buy additional energy for real money, but you don't have to. Your energy recharges a certain amount (Enough for about 8 games) every 240 minutes. (Though the time is not completely decided yet. The in-app purchases for Eliminate cost $1.99, $9.99, and $29.99, which give you high amounts of power cells, which allow you to play online and earn credits. You can also trade in each power cell for 1,000 credits. However, you still have to level up online to buy certain items. You must have a Plus+ account to play the game. (Or you can make one on the spot)
  • Touch Pets: Dogs is another free title. It is similar to Nintendogs, and you must adopt and care for a dog, one of seven breeds. (Including a Robot Dog) You can make them become a certain profession, and train them to gain different skills. I have not gotten up to the career portion of the game yet, so I do not know what it is like. It has a system similar to Eliminate, but instead, it limits the time you play with your dog (kind of). You slowly gain "food bowls" over time, or can buy a premium version of the game with a lot of food bowls to start out with. Your progress is transferred to the other versions, because the Plus+ network, which is in both titles, allows it to sync with all of your Touch Pets games. You can also let your dog have "playdates" with your Plus+ friends' dog(s), and even while your dog is "away," you can still play with it!
So, that's the scoop, and hope you enjoy Eliminate and TouchPets: Dogs!
If you're wondering, ngmoco:) anticipates a worldwide release in a few days, since this is essentially just testing.
