Secret Life of Pets UnleashedIt’s a foregone conclusion that if there’s an animated movie being released, a mobile game will follow. Such is the case with The Secret Life of Pets, due out July 8th from Illumination Entertainment. The tie-in app—a match-3 game called The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed—is available now from EA.

In the game, players will be able to join Max and his crew of companions from the movie for an adventure in the Big Apple, in which you will:

  • Tackle Challenging Puzzles – Match your way through New York with the charming guide Max revealing new puzzles, pets and moments along the way. Players will get to chase away pesky squirrels with Mel or dig up super-sized bones for Duke.
  • Embark on Pet Adventures – As you progress through the game and make your way to the top of the leaderboards, you will meet new pets such as Chloe, who can’t be bothered unless there is food, Leonard, the posh punk poodle, and Snowball, the insanely cute but insane rabbit.
  • Reveal and Relish Pet Moments – Make the perfect match and unlock secret pet moments including releasing a flock of helpful (and beautiful) Parakeets or triggering an exciting tile-exploding Rainbow Ball.

Should you happen to be in Los Angeles next week, grab your pet and join EA in real life at The Grove on June 29th from 11 AM PST to 5 PM PST for a day of My Dog and Me Match 3 games, prizes and more.

The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed is available now for free (with in-app purchases) in the iTunes App Store. For more information, visit
