PetVille Adds Jaycub & More Dusk Items

PetVille developer Zynga has expanded its collection of “Dusk” Twilight parody items. Further fueling the vampires vs. werwolves debate, players can now purchase the transforming Jaycub, as well as the previously-released sparkling Petward. Both are available for just over nine more days.

Other new additions include Stella Fawn, Allison Culven, Josalie Tail, and more Twilight-inspired yard decorations.

We should point out that there are two versions of both Jaycub and Petward available. The slightly pricier, limited edition version of each animate more elaborately.

PetVille Releases ‘Twilight’ Parody Items

PetVille developer Zynga jumped on the vampire bandwagon this week with a collection of “Dusk” items, modeled after the enduringly popular Twilight series of books and movies. The highlight of the expansion is probably the new animated “Petward” – and yes, he sparkles. Zynga as assured fans that “JayCub” is coming soon.

Other new decorations include: a variety of vampire themed clothing items and accessories, a moody street light, a red pickup truck, a gigantic wolf, a sparkling gazebo, a creepy woods outdoor background, and more.

These items can all be found in the outdoor store, and can only be purchased by players that have unlocked their PetVille yards, new clothes excepted. They can be purchased by anyone.

PetVille Giving Away Wings with Purchases

PetVille developer Zynga has announced that all players that purchase any Pet Cash package will receive a special bonus: a pair of animated Fairy Glow wings! Perhaps the freebie isn’t quite what some players would have wanted, but free is free, we say.

After purchasing Pet Cash, the wings are automatically given to players within their wardrobe. They can be found by clicking the T-Shirt icon. An expiration date for this promotion has not been given, but it likely won’t be around forever. So if these wings strike your fancy, better grab your free pair while you can!

Happy Pets Releases Good & Evil Pet Collection

Happy Pets developer Crowdstar released another collection of premium pets today. These six new companions follow a Good & Evil theme, with no room in between! All the new pets are either quite angelic, or downright demonic. At least in how they are styled.

The six new pets are: Sparkling Guardian Dog, Hell Hound, Sparkling Angel Cat, Raven Unicorn, Sparkling Guardian Unicorn, and Hellcat. The three “good” pets are all white and sport halos, while the three “evil” pets are red and black, with horns and red eyes.

The dogs are for sale for $6, the cats $7, and the unicorns are $8.

PetVille Releases New Treehouse Decorations

In addition to all the Fairy Meadows decorations released in PetVille’s Outdoor Store, Zynga has also introduced a new set of Treehouse decorations in the game’s furniture store. The decorations are mostly every day household items blown up to extremely large size, giving the impression that anyone in the room is miniature and fairy sized. Or perhaps PetVille pets truly are shrunk down to size any time they visit their magic treehouse.

In any case, new decorations include: a storybook, an inkwell + quill, a collection of five flying fairies, a pincushion, an hourglass, a pipe furnace, a lunch box, a jar of honey, an hourglass, and plenty more.

Only players that have constructed their treehouse room have access to these new items, and only players that have unlocked the Fairyland magic door in their attic have access to the treehouse.

PetVille Adds Rare Treasure Trinkets

PetVille developer Zynga introduced a new incentive to get players to visit and clean their neighbor’s homes this weekend: Treasure Trinkets! Players can now find these trinkets at random when visiting their neighbors. Any trinket found can then be sold for a boat load of coins – some are sold for over 10,000 coins!

Zynga presented a red and gold crown, a giant blue jewel, and (oddly) a purple mushroom as three potential trinkets. If you find one, leave a comment and let us know what it was, and how much it was worth.

Happy Pets Releases Shrink & Grow Elixers

Happy Pets developer Crowdstar has been selling very large and very small premium pets for a while now, but now players can shrink or grow their existing pets! New Growth Elixir and Shrink Elixir are for sale now in the Happy Pets shop.

Each Growth Elixir grows a pet by 20%, with a limit of twice the pet’s normal size. Each shrink elixir shrinks a pet by 10%, with a limit of half its normal size.

The Elixirs are a little pricy, however. The Growth Elixir is for sale for $4.80, and the Shrink Elixir is for sale for $5.00. We wonder why Crowdstar isn’t selling them for the same price?

Happy Pets Introduces Piggy Bank Upgrades

Happy Pets developer Crowdstar gave players a new way to up their daily piggy bank bonus, today. Players can now spend a little bit of real world money ($5.60 for the first improvement) to upgrade their piggy bank. The upgrades are:

1st Upgrade: Doubles the coin reward.
2nd Upgrade: 1st Upgrade + Better Odds
3rd Upgrade: 2nd Upgrade + adds a chance to win the 3-day XP idol with every spin.

Not the best value in our opinion – we think players determined to spend some cash in Happy Pets should at least get a premium rare pet for their money.

Happy Pets Releases Mini Parrot Line

Most Happy Pet updates come in two varieties these days: pets styled and named after celebrities or famous fictional characters, or pets in very large or very small sizes. Today’s mini parrots update falls into the latter category.

Developer Crowdstar introduced seven mini parrots in total. They are all limited additions, with 450 – 1150 copies left. Besides their small size, these seven parrots are also unique for their color schemes. The seven varieties are: Blue Macaw, Amazon, Purple Amazon, African Grey, Orange Amazon, Eclectus, and Light Green.

All seven are being sold for $6.80.

Happy Pets Introduces Twilight Pets

In a move that’s sure to drive girls both young and (let’s be honest) old wild, Crowdstar has introduced a set of four premium Twilight inspired pets. All four are for sale for 88 FB$ ($8.80), and are available in limited quantities. There are about 1500 left, as of now.

The two cats are Sparkling Edward and Sparkling Victoria. As their names imply, they sparkle, just like the vampires from the books. The two dogs are Huge Sam and Huge Edward. And just as their names imply, they are very oversized. We aren’t sure how their size relates to the stories, however.

In our opinion, this is a disappointing update. Sometimes, Happy Pets’ movie animals make sense. When Crowdstar released a huge black and green cat named Catzilla… we got it. But releasing a big brown dog and calling him Jacob? Just seems lazy, to us.
