By Portable Pixels

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Hatchi is a retro-looking iPhone app sure to get the nostalgia burning for all those who cared for a virtual pet back in the 1990s when they were at the height of their popularity. Just as with the keychain-sized pets of the 90s, iPhone, iPod and iPad users now will feed, clean, play with and generally look after their pets to ensure they grow up to be healthy, happy little Hatchis. He needs YOU!

*** Featured on Touch Arcade Best iPhone and iPad Games***

Your Hatchi monster will go through several stages of growth, and will look different depending on the type of care the player provides. There are also NEW EGGS you can get which give you all new types of Hatchi!

Customise your Hatchi!! You can:

“Say goodbye to your productivity. Say hello to your new friend.”

“It's hilarious, but I really, really, really don't want Big Poppa Pump (his Hatchi monster) to bite the dust. I've somehow bonded with the thing”

Brilliant app!

I am blind, and I never had a tamagotchi when i was a child because they weren't accessible for blind people. Therefore i could never understand why people liked virtual pets, that is until i downloaded hatchi. I am addicted to Hatchi, i love my pet so much! I love that its accessible with VoiceOver as well. Thank you for creating a virtual pet everyone can use.
To those reviewers that complain that Hatchi is too old fashioned, its meant to be retro like the tamagotchi, it clearly says that its a retro virtual pet in the app description.

Very good

This game is very good, I like looking after a little creature in a retro style, and the evolutions really add to the game. But the game needs to be more specific on the energy amount term, if you run out of energy and go to play a game, it'll state 'not enough coins' but the games are free. What it actually means is 'you've run out of energy'. please fix this so future players won't be confused like me. But other than that, its a really good game! :D


The game relies heavily on 'coins' which of course can be purchased (as with everything nowadays). It is therefore not like the games we used to know 20 years ago.

There are also many glitches in the latest version- when you click to read a book, it informs you that 'you don't have enough coins' and redirects you to the food store. Click the mini game button and it takes you to the perks store, again after informing you of no coins.

Fix this, rely less on coins and I'd recommend it to all.
