A truly child-friendly game, Build a Bearville focused on giving its virtual citizens as immersive an experience as possible, and it did so by arming the virtual world with seemingly endless activities for the user to enjoy.

Petra’s Planet



Now, let’s move on to Petra’s Planet. This virtual world puts you in a planet outside of Earth, and it is your privilege to be able to go through this world’s regions to collect animal cards. You will have to engage in a card battle with that said animal, and defeat it in order to add it to your collection. The planet is considerably large, so you’ll have lots of places to explore.

Much of the gameplay centers on collecting kid power. Kid power is a form of badge that determines what places you can access in the planet. Collecting cards is just one way to accumulate kid power points - other ways to do so include accomplishing challenging quests that the game throws along your way.

Zwinky



Last but not the least, we have Zwinky. Zwinky features a comprehensive world that is limited to not just the in-game world but also to a bustling online community.

Players were required to create a Zwinky, which is basically an avatar that you not only use to explore the virtual world, but also to represent you in blogs, social media pages, and message boards. In the virtual world, players had access to lots of in-game events, opportunities to dress up and customize your Zwinky, and play mini-games for in-game cash rewards.

Fortunately, someone is working on relaunching Zwinky under a new name: Zwinky Rewritten!
