Portable Pixels has released Hatchi, the retro virtual pet for iPhone (Bandai owns the rights i think to the Tamagochi brand). Hatchi is a retro-looking Tamagotchi-style iPhone app that will bring back memories for those of us that cared for a virtual pet back in the 1990s when they were at the height of their popularity.
Just as with the keychain-sized Tamagotchi pets, iPhone users now will feed, clean, play with and generally look after their pets to ensure they grow up to be healthy, happy little Hatchis. The Hatchi monster will go through several stages of growth, and will develop differently depending on the quality of care the player provides. A successfully raised Hatchi monster will be smarter, happier, and require less attention.
The only things Hatchi needs to complete the app is more minigames, maybe even a contest/achievement system and a more robust evolution system.
