Pou is a virtual pet game for BlackBerry, iOS and Android developed and published by Paul Salameh (listed as Zakeh on the Google Play Store). It features a rounded, triangular alien character whose default color is brown. In the game the character can be fed, cleaned, exercised, suited, and put to sleep. There are also mini games within the app and coins can be earned to purchase costumes, decorations, and modifications of the game environment by playing the mini game or by reaching the achievements. It is somewhat similar to Tamagotchi, a fad game that required caring for a simulated creature. It can also interact with other Pous by visiting them when the game is connected to the internet or play games with other Pous as opponent via selected mini games which as Pou-vs-Pou (PvP) capability the game connectivity is either Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or even via Internet.
