Ready to re-live your childhood? It’s back! The Japanese virtual pet of the 90′s, Tamagotchi, returns to us in the form of a smartphone app. The egg-shaped device allowed children of all ages to care for, feed, clean, and vaccinate their very own virtual pet. The Tamagotchi craze reached its peak during the mid 1990′s when 15 units were sold every minute in the US and Canada. Now, over 70 million Tamagotchis have been sold worldwide.
Much to the excitement of nostalgic 90′s kids, the app aims to duplicate the functions of the popular device. The app features the same abilities as the original: a feed button, a light button, a play button, a medicine button, a clean button, a health stats button, a discipline button, and an attention button (all in its original placement). ‘Toy mode’ recreates the original graphics, movements, and gameplay of the Tamagotchi device. ‘App mode’ zooms in and allows users a more touchscreen experience. Additionally, the app allows its users to collect various wallpapers, egg shells, and send screenshots directly to facebook.
Sync Beatz has licensed Tamagotchi from Bandai and is calling the app “Tamagotchi L.i.f.e.” Download this free app today!
