The end of the 90s brought with it a most curious phenomenon, which would go on to have a major impact on electronic devices. Tamagotchi came in like a storm, and both kids and non kids alike were desperate to get their hands on one of these little eggs to create their virtual pet. 20 years later My Tamagotchi Forever has arrived. It’s a new game for Android that turns your smartphone into a new home for virtual pets. You can now download the game free of charge from Uptodown without any region restrictions.
Tamagotchis were created in 1996 by Aki Maita, although they didn’t make it to Western markets until the following year. It was a strange and original idea for a device, halfway between a game and a watch, and it created a fervor among kids. Everyone had one, or at least wanted one, and it was incredible to see how each tamagotchi grew and matured in a different way based on how you took care of it. The craze over the electronic eggs brought about a number of games, an anime series, movies, and songs. And now it’s all back on Android so that new generations can become a part of the phenomenon.
My Tamagotchi Forever lets you take part in an extended version of what you experienced 20 years ago with the original Tamagotchis. However, many things remain intact: you have to keep track of certain parameters of your virtual pet and feed it regularly to keep it happy, make it go to the bathroom when it needs to, bath it to keep it clean, play with it, and put it to bed. Each of these activities has a small interaction with your virtual pet, but the most elaborate is play time. There are three different minigames: a match 3 puzzle, a guitar hero like game of pushing buttons, and a game of moving planets. They are simple, but you have to get a good score to keep your Tamagotchi happy.
Taking care of your pet’s necessities will earn you money, which you can use to buy food and new scenes. It’s the typical Free to Play system found in many smartphone games, as you can also unlock new objects and food using diamonds. These gems are used for many things, but the main advantage is speeding up the act of sleep. You can also level up by performing actions with your pet, unlocking more food and facilities to keep yourself entertained. In many moments of the game there is the option to take a picture, which can unlock better futures for your pet.
My Tamagotchi Forever returns the world to the Tamagotchi craze, maintaining the original essence but adding interesting new improvements to bring it up to modern standards. The game also includes a social aspect, and you can visit your friend’s town to see their Tamagotchi. Furthermore, you can customize your pets with costumes and accessories by spending your hard earned money.
