The classic The Sims 2: Pet Stories returns to the Mac, exclusively on the Mac App Store!

Based off of The Sims 2 engine, this updated version of The Sims Pet Stories includes several enhancements available for the first time on Mac:
• Native resolution support, including 4K and Retina!
• Drastically improved performance, thanks to an all new renderer
• Gesture Support for zoom and rotate
• Tons of bug fixes and tweaks

The Sims 2: Pet Stories invites your Sims to care for and train loveable but unpredictable pets. Take on a variety of challenges as you compete for 1st place in a local pet show. Learn to tame a variety of pet personalities. You even unlock rewards along the way as you achieve set goals.

The Brand-New Pet Show - Your Sims can train their pets to strut their stuff and earn rewards by getting them to navigate an agility course, including walking along a see-saw, running through tunnels, and jumping over obstacles.

Open-Ended Freeplay Mode - You create your Sims and their pets (choose from 70 dog and 30 cat breeds), fulfill their desires or dash their hopes, and tell their stories.

Two Complete Stories in Directed Story Mode - Play as Alice who needs to win the local Dog Show Competition (and the large cash prize) with her loveable dog Sam in order to save her house. Or follow Stephen, an executive chef whose highly predictable life is thrown into chaos when he’s forced to take care of his cousin’s spoiled cat, Diva.

Chopper Dr. ,

AWESOME but…..

this game is awesome and i just got it this morning i LOVE IT its really great though just a tiny thing missing NO its not the bad definition i thinks thats good but besides that

say you wanna do the warrior cats challenge and this is all you have (atleast for me) you cant decorate the town/lot and the animals cant interact with eachother like the huans do (with all those options and stuff) so if that was a update it would be quiet awesome then i would be happy

please think about this atleast but besides all i really love the game its great

I Love it!!!!!!! By Scott Peacock III

I REALLY like this game, I think the creators of this game did a pretty good job on all of it. I love that you have your pets in the game, but also you have a lot of other things to do as well. Your sims can get jobs, and so can your dogs! I think the money for this game is worth it TOTALLY!!! I hope that all you buyers enjoy this game as much as I do! Have fun! :)

Sims addiction!

I love the Sims! I play Sims 2,3,and 4 as well Sims Mobile.
This one caught my eye cause I am looking for Sims 2 stuff for Mac.
I couldnt find Sims 2 stuff freely yet or easily. So I decided to download the Sims 2 from App Store.
It plays nicely and all the Sims 2 Pets features are there. It’s very fun!
I play Sims 3 Pets and it is kinda laggy on some parts.
The wait between goals is a pain tho.
Other than that it’s a keeper. Hope you guys bring us Sims 3 and 4 stuff with the Apple Arcade!
