Petz 5 is the fifth and final installment of the Petz franchise, released in 2002. It was the first game released after Ubisoft purchased The Learning Company (and by extension PF Magic) in 2001. It was developed by Studio Mythos and both published and distributed by Ubisoft.[1]

New Features Edit

  • Five minigames:
    • Simon Says
    • Obstacle Course
    • Scarab Crunch
    • Rock, Paper, Scissors
    • Tic Tac Toe[3]

Reception Edit

While decently reviewed by the public,[4] the games have been met with a much colder reception in the Petz Community for some radical changes to core game play, lack of backwards compatibility, and substandard new breeds.

Compatibility Edit

All Petz that originate in Petz 5 cannot be ported to 3 or 4 naturally. This used to be done via copying and pasting the desired Pet's LNZ into a .pet from the original game, which was an obviously insufficient workaround. It wasn't until 2019 with the release of PetFlux that players were able to transfer their Petz with personalities, training, etc. intact — nearly 20 years after Petz 5's release!
