Dont get this app if you dont want CONSTANT notifications.

Looking for retro fun, but this wasnt it

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 doesnt 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 didnt care whether it lived or evolved. This may be because it is unbelievably demanding; unless you have your iPad open and youre staring at it constantly, youre likely to miss an alert and boom, dead Tamagotchi. People who arent 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

Pet gets too needy that it gets frustrating! Do not buy this game if you dont have much free time on your hands. Pet keeps on sending notifications, and little ignored calls causes pet to die.

Needs improvement

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 couldnt 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 doesnt 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

Precisely what I remember. Here is a tip: Sometimes you have to check on them (they wont 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!!
