Way too much 1/5
11 notifications in 20 min? And now my tomagotchi is dead already. Who has that kinda time? I can't remember for sure how quickly they died back in the 90s but for a modern person you can't expect someone to play it that often! I can't be on the app every 5 minutes taking care of this thing.
Addicted once again 5/5
I love it! The original Tama was the best Tama. They've upgraded the graphics but left everything else simple and easy to enjoy! I've gifted it to people twice already! I haven't enjoyed an app this much in ages!
Wish I could give LESS stars NOT ORIGINAL 1/5
By Sweet Kateybird
NOT A GOOD APP!! My actual tamma's had generations! This kills your tam in spite of perfect attention. I'm a SAHM to A teen & HAVE no job. This STUPID TAMMA DIES CONSISTENTLY. SO infuriating for a dumb game which I played 20 years ago with enjoyment.
Cute, but could use some work! 3/5
As an owner and a avid lover of tamagotchi, this app is to die for! Just like the original tamas!
My only issue with this app is that when I use it on my Apple Watch, the notifications aren't in English! Hopefully this is fixed soon!
Otherwise, super cute and great for tamagotchi fans of every age :)
My Childhood Memories 5/5
This is exactly like the real tomagatchi I had when I was in elementary school. I couldn't be happier to relive my fond memories! Thank you for recreating this classic toy 😊😊😊
Good but bad? 4/5
So, I bought the game. I fell in love with it.
But, I'm not very old and I have school. However there's no "pause" feature so, my tamagotchi always dies before reaching adulthood I've had 3 tarakotchis and a nyrotchi.
I got a connection V1 and it's more convenient. I just keep it for the stickers! In conclusion, it's not bad, but it lost momentum with me after a month. 4/5 Please add a pause feature!
⏸ (just a button on the top is fine)
It's summer vacation now. So, I think I will be able to take better care of my tamagotchi.
Still though, please add a pause button. I have a V2 now and it just says "pause". And if you are worried about the time passing, just copy what you did on the connection. So unless you wanna go COMPLETE REMAKE of the original, please add a pause button. (For the people in school/meetings @ work/etc.) Thanks!
(Update no. 2) Also, please add the gen 2 characters like mimitchi And kusatchi.
Cute but Boring 4/5
By Chille Tid
The pets are cute and bring nostalgia, but it gets boring.
Back then, these games were our "fidget spinners" or trends of the time. But since we have much more complex games, it's not that "fun" anymore.
Don't buy this 1/5
This is honestly one of the worst things I ever spent my money on, it's nothing like the original
Overall its good but.... 4/5
By The Kitty Bean
I like this game, you can leave the tamagotchi for like 6-7
Hours and it will still be alive. But one thing I don't like is that my tamagotchi died at 5 years old and I don't like that. I just hatched another and I hope it lives longer this time, I hope you get some useful information from this review, bye!
A few days later...
P E O P L E!!!!
IT DIED AGAIN AT FIVE YEARS!!!!!
P.S. a few died before that from me not taking good care of it
I'm not a good mother lol.
P.P.S. Pause option please not that I have a problem with this but other people do so pplleeaassee!
DO NOT GET 2/5
This game gave me anxiety and annoyed other people by constantly making my phone buzz! A waste of $2
I just got this, and really was feeling nostalgia already. I was born in 2001 and remember always playing with these and having A LOT. Then they all just disappeared from me and society one day.
I saw it on top charts today and paid 0.99 (hopefully worth it)
So far I'm kinda okay with it but I think it needs more updates
It's awesome that I can have these littlest pets without holding one of the real things in pubic. That would be embarrassing especially as a male.
It being an app is perfect.
But please just update more, and also please add what each care symbol does and when to use it in the tutorial.
I'm still confused about when and how to use the discipline care icon.
Update: Think I'm finally just gonna delete the app. I do this a lot with a lot of apps. I barely have any game apps.
It's gotten really boring and my pet just died of age I think.
I thought it would be more fun or lasting but I guess not. Just gonna delete it so it's one less thing on my mind that I don't like
I wish this emulated other tamagotchi versions, like the v4.5. There aren't many features in the game.
Make it exactly the same! 4/5
Love the nostalgia of playing this game; however, I wish the characters were exactly the same as V2 along with the age profession. I feel like some of the fun is missing from the game when there are only so many characters in it's early life. Also I never remember it dying so quickly at age 5. I turn away for 2 hours max and it's dead without having notified me, whereas the actual ones I could come back after half of a day and it would still be alive. Love it overall though!
Wallpaper glitch 2/5
By Kyna M
It's no fun to earn things I can't use. Please fix the wallpaper so that it actually changes.
Pretty Good 3/5
Maybe it's me but I don't remember my old tamagotchi being this needy. Love the concept & the nostalgia. Also, it won't let me change the background in the app. Not sure why, I can change the shell but not the wallpaper.
been waiting for this app for soooo longgggg 4/5
every time my battery died on my keychain tamagotchi i would wonder why there was no tamagotchi app.. wish i could play games with my tamagotchi on here like i can with my normal tamagotchi but hopefully an update will make that happen
also could you please tone down all the yellow it's painful to look at
Wallpaper Glitches 1/5
It's a shame that the wallpapers stop working after a while. Once I unlocked the greene wallpaper that says "Tamagatchi!" I was no longer able to change my wallpaper at all!
tamagotchi app needs update badly 1/5
By Garden Of Death Roses
When you play games with your little pet, you will always have to lose in order to get a heart. Not really fun if u have to lose each time.
Feeding the pet doesn't give u much options
Notations are pointless each time the app sends u a reminder it's ether ur pet has poop & is sleep & cant clean it so your pet dies.
Or it's nothing.
Needs improvement not worth paying a cent
Don't let the bad reviews fool you! They're probably 13 year-olds who have never played the original. I got it when it first came out when I was in elementary school (I'm now almost done with college) and this is EXACTLY how it was. I absolutely love it. 100% worth the $0.99!
Just okay. 2/5
I'd rather get batteries for my old one and play with it. This is pretty boring.
UPDATE PLEASE 3/5
By Volcano Goddess
I love the tamagotchi connections and I can see so many improvements for the app if you would please update it to have such capabilities as the tamagotchi connections handheld 💛💛💛
Tommy just keeps on dying. 1/5
So here I am taking care of Tommy, being a good mother, feeding him, playing with him, answering every one of his calls and he keeps dying at five. Thank god I can't have kids, but hey, if I could at least I would know they would only live till FIVE and continually DIE.
To the Devs 4/5
Update the game and add the shop feature. You'll have double the people downloading this if you do. Take advantage of the nostalgia factor alone. You got me to download this app for that very simple reason. Stay true to the original we all grew up on, never leaving anything out. That's what makes people turn away or lose interest. But besides that, what you have right now is an amazing stating point. Anyone who grew up in the 90's will enjoy this as it stands. Bringing back old memories and such. Once it's fully up to date, no questions 5/5.
I expected a little more 3/5
By J-girl 101
For $0.99 I guess it's not bad but it's not great. Considering that tamagotchis came out more than 10 years ago, you would at least think the app could be as good as they were. Being able to earn points and buy things was half the fun. I hope they update it to where it is exactly like the V3 or V4!
By God Girl 777
I love it!! Just like the original! It just has one glitch. Overtime my tamagotchi poos, I have to exit the app before I can do anything. Other than this, great game!!
Apple Watch feature doesn't work! 2/5
Kinda cool playing on my phone but I downloaded this to play on my Apple Watch to have the nostalgia feeling of playing on a smaller screen. 90% of the time it doesn't work and even when it does you can't play games on the Apple Watch with it and it doesn't even move around like it does on the phone screen. This needs to be fixed!
Pretty fun! 3/5
It is fun, but I loved the actual tamagotchi more because I would play games for coins so I can spend them in a shop. I loved that. I loved picking what to feed my tamagotchi instead of bread or candy all the time! This game is okay, but it would be awesome if there was an update with the coins and the shop.
It's perfect for what it's advertised 3/5
It's nice, but I personally prefer later versions where you play games to earn points you can then spend in the shop, and when there is more options for tamagotchis you can hatch. I hope you come out with an update that includes later versions
Apple Watch Fail 3/5
Love the app on my iPhone 7 Plus but very upset with the Apple Watch app. I can't even play with it and there's no animation whatsoever. Please fix ASAP! It would be so much fun and closer to the original to be able to play on my Apple Watch. Until then only giving 3 stars.
Love it but 4/5
I wish that they would make it that you would be able to breed and have kids I would love to see the other models too.
Wonderful! All of the ferrets were so grateful I was feeding them, and they were very affectionate. Then I went to the supermarket and bought a pomegranate!
Ok Game 4/5
It's ok, but it's hard to keep up with caring for the pet. Like if I'm asleep and feed it and the next day it's dead. I'd rather play this if the notifications came later on and if the pet wouldn't be hungry for at least a few hours.
I get the same adult every time and dies too soon 2/5
By Addicitive Zombie
It's annoying, I get the same adult stage every time I play. It's not fun
I certainly got farther than I ever did back in 97 3/5
Fun, nostalgic, only a buck. Got kinda sick of always winding up with the little blue sperm guy no matter what I did. Also stopped notifying me these last few rounds, resulting in dead tamagotchi's cuz I'd forget about the app. Not bad though.
Add more mini games 4/5
By Lauren whejfkfkkfem
If there were more mini games to play with my tamagotchi, that would be nice. They should add more. Also please add a feature to interact your tamagotchi with other tamagotchis!
Just like the real thing.
I keep getting the same little pet and I've played so many times already!!
Make Apple Watch App Active!!!!!!!!! 4/5
This look at a picture crap is pretty lame you know you could do better
Apple Watch can be better 3/5
By Fire Rose
I downloaded the app hoping I could have a full-fledged toy on my Apple Watch. But you can only check its stats, feed it, and clean it. You can't play with it, and worst of all, it has NO animation or sound at all and yet somehow is still slow. There are PLENTY of animated watch apps, and considering how much more powerful the watch is compared with the 90s toy, this makes no sense at all.
Wanted to love it but... 2/5
Tamas only followed 1 evolution/ life cycle (circle to duck face) then died - even though all needs were being met promptly
This is a time machine. 5/5
This app brings me back to my childhood. I brought out my old Tamagotchi pet recently and relived my childhood. But after awhile it was a real hassle to carry that little device in my pocket throughout work and daily life. I'm grateful to have found this app. Now my old friends can live within my phone. On day 10 with my Tamagotchi so far, loving this app.
Only get if your into stuff like this pretty boring
Don't get this app if you don't want CONSTANT notifications.
Looking for retro fun, but this wasn't it 2/5
I confess that I had one of the original toys, and although most of my pets had a short lifespan due to my poor parenting skills, it was great fun!
This app doesn't capture the engaging, interactive spirit of the original, and the alternate "modernized" format included with the app is even less intriguing.
The character has no charm, and I quickly realized that I didn't care whether it lived or evolved. This may be because it is unbelievably demanding; unless you have your iPad open and you're staring at it constantly, you're likely to miss an alert and boom, dead Tamagotchi.
People who aren't familiar with the original are also likely to be mystified by the controls, since the app lacks a meaningful tutorial and there is very little help offered to the player.
Maybe the experience would be different on the Apple Watch. However, I deleted this within two days and have no intention of reinstalling.
Overall the feel was the same as the original Tamagotchi games I had as a child, however the notifications every ten miniutes were obnoxious. I left them on for simplicity but i was forced to turn them off after the annoyance and stopped playing less than a week after getting the game.
Not worth spending money on 1/5
Pet gets too needy that it gets frustrating! Do not buy this game if you don't have much free time on your hands. Pet keeps on sending notifications, and little ignored calls causes pet to die.
Needs improvement 3/5
Since the 1997 original tamagotchi was way easier to use and understand. This app has its flaws and needs allot of improvement. My tama passed at 5 yrs and I took very good care of it. The problem, I couldn't discipline it and there was no discipline button or instructions so my discipline bars were always up. Please fix this and come out with a better tutorial and instructions.
This game is amazing! I do love it very much and it brings back much nostalgia from when I was a kid. I remembered that when you first hatch a tomogatchi, it needs a lot of care and attention so I made sure to hatch it when I knew had a day where I would be doing not much of anything. As it grows older It doesn't need as much attention so you can be more free. My tomogatchi is still alive and well! But my one problem is the game can get repetitive, so it knocks it down a star. Could you add maybe some different elements from the later versions? That would be great! Thanks for reading, if you did
What a throwback 😭👌 5/5
Precisely what I remember.
Here is a tip:
Sometimes you have to check on them (they won't always give you notifications when they are sick) just because.
Love the app.
I have been waiting for this to come out for a few years, I am glad I found it!!
Needs pause button 4/5
By Cool app iPod
The app is great, but when I go to a place where I can't use my phone, such as a movie theater, I worry that it will lose too many hearts. The app should have a pause button. Please consider that for your next update.
