It shows on mine,sleeps at night and has a sort of diagram of how it works and I still don't get it. You're supposed to tap it 80 times?? Or just play games? Or both?! Idk but somehow I already have 167 points which is more than half the way of meter to full. Pretty geeky but yes these things bother me until I understand them lol
I gotta say I agree with you. I myself spent well over 2 hours searching everywhere for the pet (I even searched Game Launcher) But I never thought to scroll down to the bottom of the stupid page. They did that on purpose by putting that stupid pet at the bottom.
To remove the pet, open Game Launcher>Select the Elipses (the three lines in the top corner)>Select Labs>Turn off the Get a Pet option.
By following the steps provided SamsungRei should get you to the toggle switch to turn Get a Pet on and off. Could you please provide me a screenshot of your menu in Gamer Launcher after selecting the 3 lines in the top left so I can see the menu and better assist you?
