    Well, I just received this from one of my alerts, and Portable Pixels - which is a London-based company has released Hatchi - which is a Tamagotchi-esque iPhone application.

    Here's my source: http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Multiformat/Hatchi/news.asp?c=36863

    Is this something you might try out? I can honestly say, it looks good.

    What do you guys think?

    My first impression was pretty positive looking at this thread. I looked it up on the app store and read some reviews, as well as the developer's description.

    Downloading it now, I'll post again or edit this post once I play with it a bit more and have an opinion on the game itself xD

    Edit: I love him already. lol. He's just a blobby baby right now.

    Pretty basic so far, but does have a good old-school pocket pet game feel. I played with him until he ran out of energy and now he's sleeping.

    Oh god, I want this so bad.. So so bad. I loved Tamagotchis ever since I was a kid, and this just brings back so much memories! Too bad I can't pay.. yet. Parents don't see any point of 'buying' games from my iTouch, unless I buy them myself. Hopefully I earn some cash from my OJT 4-5 months from now.

    Re: Portable Pixels releases Hatchi, a Tamagotchi-esque iPhone/Android application

    Maybe I'm missing something?

    I bought this around the time @cpvrcpvr first posted this thread. It costs $0.99 and I was willing to do that (my mom throws fits for purchases like this. The only other game I've ever bought was Robot Unicorn) because I was really excited for a Tamagatchi-like game that I could have with me at all times. So I got it.

    It really only takes about a minute or so to tend to its needs. Its energy goes down as you feed, play, clean, and read to it. Then you put it to sleep and start all over again in a few hours or so. I don't exactly see what's so fun about this one..? It doesn't really have a Tamagatchi feel to it, or at least a charm for me to want to visit and play with it when it wakes up. It seems to tire too easily and there's not really much you can interact with it. I also got the same creature as was posted with the preview pics, so that gives me the feeling there's no alternative evolutions...?

    I want to get my money's (or more like hassle's) worth from this game, and I do think it'd be neat to have another Tamagatchi (all of my old ones aged out; I had one from every version. New batteries don't even work on em)... so can anyone tell me if there's some extra thing or a tip or something to make it more enjoyable?

    I really miss Tamagotchis and have been trying to find one at a thrift shop recently. Ive been playing Kawaii Pet Megu on iPad witch is a lot like Hatchi but different graphics. I really love it! (and its free)

    Finally, another Hatchi gamer! I have Hatchi on my Android phone and I really like it. It's simple and very clean. No complex stuffs and just the wonderful feeling of raising your pet and the excitement to see it evolve. It just would be sad to let it go to the sanctuary.

    This looks really great!

    Unfotunately, my iPhone got water damaged when I left it out in the rain yesterday while playing Touch Rubgy, so I may have to wait a bit before getting this...

    I miss the old Tamagotchis!! They were really popular in my childhood...

    It's pretty good, but not as good as the actually tomogachi one.
