Classic. 80’s early 90’s kids YOU MUST BUY 5/5
By Always 100
Classic game. Low reviews probably from people “going retro”. This is exactly how I remember. I wish there were more versions of this on the App Store like there diff versions of this in real life. Get this if you remember it as a kid. It just feels good to have!!!
I had a small soldiers Tamagotchi. Me and cousins also had dragon type tamagotchi that u could raise to battle each other.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
Even though it’s a dollar, it’s not even worth the dollar lol. Deleted it after a few days.
So much death ): 4/5
I would absolutely love this app, but for some reason the notifications don’t always work. I get a chance to finally check on my small friend and he’s dead. I’m not this neglectful! I just wish the notification system would be updated.
I really like this app. I played with a Tamagotchi some when I was a kid, but never got into it. I got this because I wanted a fun game for my new Apple Watch, and it works brilliantly. The only problem I have with it is that there's no way to set the time. With a physical Tamagotchi toy, you can reset the time to whatever you want, but this app removes that function. Normally, setting the time based on your phone's time would be great, but I work night shift so I'd like the option to swap AM/PM. As it is, the poor critter is awake while I sleep and asleep most of the time I'm awake. Please add time setting functions! This would make it a lot better for folks like me who don't have a "normal" schedule.
I mean in the beginning it looks great but then you start remembering all the pieces it’s missing. I wish it would at least be like Connection V1 or V2. It’s just lame. Hope it’ll get updated to this time.
Add more mini games 2/5
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!
Update: the tamagotchi is so needy and dies within five minutes. I wish you could pause the game. With the original toy, you could pause it and it wouldn’t die after five minutes.
So Freaking Excited!!!! 5/5
I had the yellow Tamagotchi toy when I was a kid and played it all the time!!!! I love that you can play it as the nostalgic toy and even have to tap the buttons!!!!! I JUST downloaded this tonight but I’m SUPER excited!!!!!
Update: I have ZERO complaints!!!! I went to the FAQs and realized it was just me remembering the game wrong. LOL I guess that’s to be expected when you haven’t played for 25-30 years!!!!
I’m an Adult Now, I’m Busy 2/5
Can we please get an update for people who can’t pick this up every three hours? I’ve killed like 6 of these things because I get busy at work or with my family. When I was a kid I could raise these things no problem, but I have more things going on in life now. Can we please get an “easy” mode or something like that?
By Gamer Letdown
The app looks like just what I remembered as a child. I was excited to keep my tamagotchi alive this time around as mine often died quickly as a kid. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. No matter what I did, this tamagotchi died every time at age 5 years. I read the manual, followed all instructions and still it died 17 times at 5 years old. Why did I pay for this???!
Same but boring. 3/5
It’s just like the original tomagotchi, but when I was a kid I played the newer version that had more characters-and they went to school-and your friends tamagotchis could meet up, and there were more games to play and stuff to buy for your tamagotchi. It’s an okay game-and the price isn’t bad, I just wish I could do more with my little friend.
They blow up your phone with notifications, and they kill your pet for NO reason. Needs major improvement
Bad concept of time 1/5
By Matthew programing
FIFTEEN MINUTES WITH OUT FEEDING IT AND THEN I GET A NOTIFICATION SAYING THAT IT DIED
Fix this 2/5
I would rate higher but even though I take perfectly good care of it it dies no matter what... it’s so annoying
Tamagotchi Classic and My Tamagotchi Forever are the best games ever!!! 5/5
Please continue to make more Tamagotchi games!
I sucked at taking care of my Tamagotchi when I was seven years old. Gave it to my mom to take care off because it kept dying. Now I have a better understanding of how to take care of one and it gives me a chance to do this on my own. It’s fun and simple. I’m 27 now and this takes me back to trying to take care of this pet ☺️☺️ and doing it right second time around.
I checked my pet earlier and it poo’d but I got no notification whatsoever. Definitely something that needs to be fixed. It ruins the gameplay if my tamagotchi gets sick and die.
Edit: I think I have to leave the window for this app open to get notifications. If it’s closed I get no notice but open I do get notices of my pet calling me. So I’ll give five stars ☺️
Was Good Until I Left It For 2 Hours 3/5
I Was At The Movie Theatre For 2 Hours And I Came Back And My Tamagotchi Would Not Wake Up! I Have No Idea About What Happened!
Add a v4 ver please! 5/5
I was born in 1996 and I remember playing with these my whole childhood, they got really popular when I moved to a new school and it helped me to make new friends being the super shy kid that I was so these little guys will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. I love this app don’t get me wrong but my favorite part was always the “multiplayer” aspect of v4. i feel like adding things like the shop and playing with other people would bring in SO many more people. All that being said, thank you so much for letting me relive a little bit of my childhood without having to spend 80$ on eBay haha.
By Gray Unicorn
I love that this is the same game that I remember from my childhood! I had so many of these little guys and loved raising them as a kid! This is amazing!
i got this for the apple watch. I should have read the reviews first. I expected it to be the same layout. instead its a still image and very boring. sigh
Fun game...one suggestion: PAUSE BUTTON! 4/5
It needs a pause button! I have this on my other phone. I fead it, made sure it was happy. I went to work, came back and it was dead! I just expected it to have poop or be hungry! Pause button please!
never again 1/5
By Mucinex Rockets
Waste of 99 cents. It dies after a few days even if you take perfectly good care of it. RIP Gatchi
Could be so much better 3/5
This app is fun and it works well on the watch which is the main reason I bought it. It is missing iPhone X support which is annoying but not a huge deal I guess. The real issue is that it’s only gen 1 stuff. So basically just the original experience so it gets stale quickly and there’s not much to do. Would love to see more things get implemented
It was fun until my tamagotchi went to sleep forever and now I’m stuck 2/5
I’m stuck because my tamagotchi fell asleep and I can’t wake him up
Good but buggy 3/5
I wish this app didn’t freeze so often. Every time I open it when it calls me there’s a 50% chance it will freeze and I’ll have to relaunch the app to use it again.
YES YES YES 5/5
This is exactly how I remember my Tamagotchis. I am so happy to have found this!!!
It’s a pretty fun game in all honesty. I knew what to expect so I wasn’t disappointed, it’s simply just the Tamagotchi experience on your phone. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s the whole package. I don’t really feel nostalgic, so that already eliminated the ‘rose colored’ glasses. My only gripe is the manual. I get that it’s emulating the original manual, but please update it. It took some trial and error to figure out everything. All in all a good game. On a side note please make tamagotchi ocean available, as an app.
MORE GAMES! 4/5
I’m giving the game four stars, I love the game and I’m glad the older games are coming back into style, I just wish there were more games then just rock, paper, scissors!
Amazing App 5/5
So, I can't have a pet because my family travels all the time.
THEN I find out that there's this thing called Tamagotchi. I try to find one online, but too expensive. ($150?!?!)
And I found this app! It's awesome! You should get it! :-D
Great Job!!! It’s pretty well made!!! 5/5
I love this app, it brings back a lot of childhood memories.
If someday, you all decide to make another app, say for...cough cough, tamagotchi connection...cough cough.
I wouldn’t mind paying for that
Born in 83, this is the real deal... 5/5
Man, I freaking loved these things growing up! However, when I became a teenager, I got pretty fed up (you couldn’t just turn off notifications or uninstall the app ;) )... I took a hammer to my Tamagotchi... then a cinder block... I tried so many ways to kill this thing... for GOOD, but I couldn’t.
Moral of the story kids, don’t get a Tamagotchi unless you’re going to dedicate yourself to loving it FOREVER 😂❤️
Great game and I dig the watch option... it’s almost like having a real Tamagotchi again!
Just like the 90s! But better!! 5/5
Simple just like they were back when I was a kid. I really like the APP MODE. I think it's neat that you can interact with it more and the Rock Paper Scissors is cool.
The app works great so far. No glitches no complaints at all!!! Best money I've spent on the App Store thus far!
Apple Watch support limited 2/5
Can’t play with Tamagotchi on Apple Watch. Apple Watch display isn’t animated.
Good with a few issues 3/5
I’m a huge Tamagotchi fan, so I was excited to see this in the App Store. I love the simplicity combined with the ability to collect different Tamas to unlock new shells and wallpapers. The issue lies with the latter: I cannot change the wallpaper regardless of how many times I’ve chosen a different one. This is an obvious glitch that I hope will be fixed. There’s no point in providing the option to change wallpapers when you can’t.
Just like it was when I was a kid 😆 5/5
I’ve always loved caring for my tamagotchi so now I have gotten to introduce this to my little one! Thank you!
Awesome But 4/5
It’s Hard To Find One Of These Real Tamagotchi Games. But Now People Can Get A App For $0.99, Which Is Cool. But I Noticed That He Sometimes Needs Me Every Few Minutes. And The Stats (Happyness, Hunger, Etc) Go Down Too Fast. So Can You Please Change This Cause Then I Would Give It 5 Stars.
Great if you don’t go to school 3/5
My tamagotchi turned 6 and I went to school and it died🙄 Fun game tho!
True to the original 4/5
By Trevor Alan
Love how this is exactly like the original tamagotchi. However there are some glitches as if you open the app when the notification comes up for say a poop. That game freezes when the animation finishes and requires force closing the app.
‘86 Baby, 90’s kid 5/5
By Mama O3
I love this! It’s just like it was when I was a kid.❤️
Nostalgia for $1.00 5/5
I received a 20th anniversary tamagotchi for Christmas but it doesn't even come close to the original from the 90s!! I found this app and am so happy I did. It is wonderful to be able to relive a tiny part of my childhood for so little money. If the physical version from the 90s wasn't so much, I'd definitely get one, but this will do in its place. Thanks Bandai for offering an app that allows me to reminisce!!!
By I UCA h many s act y kno it y
I had the FREE app awhile back and it worked fine and gave me the option to choose a version of tamagotchi. I really feel like Bandai could have made a better app with more to do... save your .99.
GOOD BUT BORING BUT SAD 4/5
By 12345bo gaming
🔔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🔔
More Versions 4/5
Please please add more versions of Tamagotchi to play! Up to at least version 5! It was so fun to send tamagotchis to other people’s tamagotchi! It was also great to receive the mail, and play multiple games on the tamagotchis & even giving them names and getting surprised on a gender! Please add more versions of tamagotchi to play! Whether that be unlocking them or anything. Thanks!
Lazy developing. Not worth $.99! Drains my battery like crazy.
Improvements that’ll make the market shoot up. 2/5
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.
Stops Working Almost Immediately 1/5
Once the pet falls asleep, all the features stopped working. I wasn’t allowed to clean the pet’s mess. I wasn’t allowed to change the wallpaper after new wallpaper options were given to me. I reset the game hoping the features would start working, but they did not. This was disappointing.
This operates as the tamogotchi of my childhood years and I was stoked to play this. No matter how happy or how much attention I give my pet, it ALWAYS days on the 6th day. Don’t waste your money
Make a new version - Too limited 3/5
While this version is nostalgic, it’s not very engaging long-term. I wish the developers would make a smartphone app version of the Tamagotchi P’s devices.
Absolutely LOVE 5/5
I grew up with have a few tamagotchis and recently got the new mini one. Because I love tamagotchis I decided to see if there was an app as well and I was super happy to see there was one!! I am so glad y’all stayed true to the original tamagotchis, it is so simple and just fun. Plus it brings me back to being a kid.
Notifications and apple watch integration needs to be fixed 2/5
This is how I remember this game but the notifications don't always work. I'll notice I haven't heard from my pet in a while and open the app to find two poos and it's hungry and unhappy. Please fix the notifications. I bought it to play on my apple watch but it's not a very good experience on there and you can't play rock paper scissors game to make him happy.
Love this!!! 5/5
Had an original Tamagotchi hanging on my backpack in the 90’s...this is EXACTLY the same! Thank you for letting me relive my childhood!!!
