A pretty good game

I never played the original tamagotchi, although I remember wanting them and things similar very much. This game seems to have all the basic functions of tamagotchi plus a multiplayer game and a mini game with 10 levels that's sort of a mix between Mario and Flappybird. Extra items to enhance gameplay can be purchased through the use of coins which can be earned playing games or you can purchase them with real world money. Your tamagotchi seems to level up every 24 hours changing its form and I would assume that it is partially random and also has to do with what food you feed it to correspond to the "evolution" your tamagotchi goes through. It's a very fun game. My only complaint is that the reminders seem to be on a timer and don't actually reflect the Need Meters for your pet. It can be annoying to have your phone ping you "---- is bored!", open your phone and the thing is full on all meters including Happiness.

Classic Virtual Pet Experience

This app is a great amalgam of the various virtual pets that were made in the 90's, minus the beeping every five minutes. The graphics are a great reproduction of the monochrome LCD screens most of these toys had and gives it a very authentic look. There are plenty of mini-games to play, some of which were only present on some of the "off-brand" virtual pets rather than the little eggs everyone remembers. All said, a wonderful time sink for when you happen to have a bit of downtime and you're looking to stay busy.

Great game

This game is great, it's better than the original version, with new mini games and even a Hatchi battle, much like a Pokemon game, where you take care of a little creature, where you feed, play and take care of your Hatchi, it soon will evolve and you can release it into the wild, earn coins to buy space, items, and eggs, to then raise different Hatchis, my two Hatchis Jack and PokeHatchi have already evolved to adult. Great game and I highly recommend it. Hope this was an inspiring review
