Born in 1985.... THIS is exactly how the was!


How awesome. This is exactly how it was when they were first introduced in the 90’s. No fancy graphics, no fancy buttons, just the three buttons and you knew exactly how to use them. I read the reviews and I have to agree with one of them. The one that states that the bad reviews are left from 13 year olds (more less any kid in today’s world). They are exactly right. This game isn’t anything like the current games out. It’s a classic. So this ‘teen’ generation will think it’s most likely stupid and annoying that they can’t grow a tamagotchi in 5 minutes. It takes time and many many days. I remember having many tamagotchis as a kid in the 90’s. Excited to see that it’s the same as I remember/had. No fanciness, just a good 90’s Classic that’s on your phone. Hands down, worth .99 and should totally be 5 stars as it’s exactly how it was back in the day. Thank you for not changing. Sometimes change is good, but seeing something that brought so much joy to me as a kid in the 90’s looking exactly the same in my 30’s is such an awesome feeling! I’m totally a Kid at heart!

One thing I’m excited to see, how I can interact with it on my Apple watch. Such a neat feature!

🔔Well I remember my family having them as toys and hard to control but cute and part of our family. I was thinking and remembered the tamagotchi toy and looked it up and the app was there so I guess I got it even though it was .99 so anyways I got it and was so impressed on how the Tamagochi was like the toy! So then I got bored of like 600 notifications one morning and being to lazy to check on my tamagochi later that day I opened the app and poof my tamagachi pooped like 10 times and was hit with two illnesses and it died. So I was devastated but this is a good lesson for me when I am a mother and have children so I did reasearch and this was made for teenagers to teach them about mothering so ya it’s fun like good for pet training and ya so DONT BE DISAPPOINTED IF IT DIES it saves everything but you go back to your normal tamagachi and if you read this far HAVE A GREAT DAY AND PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK🔔

Improvements that’ll make the market shoot up.


Bandai, I love you guys been buying games from you for years now, I have a degree in development so I know a good game when I see one and understand potential where it is viable, here is an amazing game that can blast the app market. Here’s some ideas that will help you,

First, consider how popular tomogachi was amazing, the concept was creative and different, however the first gen was only so so in the consumers eyes.

Now how can we build upon the work you’ve already done, easy solution, the future generations of tomogochi had amazing features, examples, shops as mentioned in another submission, praising your tomo, more games, friend connections etc. The list goes on.

How do we use this concept? EASY, the player starts with first Gen, then gradually through playing and various experience gained the player can unlock the next generation of Tomogochi giving the player new capabilities in the game, not only will this boost sales ratings when the word gets out, it will bring all the tomogochi lovers back and the game may be sold for more then a dollar profiting the company well.

I understand Bandai had to drop a few projects because of lack of man power and resources so this project won’t be on the priority list, or can it be? Millions possibly billions of people may buy this game because of its fun and simple reputation. The power is in your hands Bandai.
