App description: Hatchi is a retro-looking iPhone and watch app sure to get the nostalgia burning for all those who cared for a virtual pet back in the 1990s when they were at the height of their popularity. Just as with the keychain-sized pets of the 90s, iPhone, iPod and iPad users now will feed, clean, play with and generally look after their pets to ensure they grow up to be healthy, happy little Hatchis. He needs YOU!

*** Featured on Touch Arcade Best iPhone and iPad Games***

Your Hatchi monster will go through several stages of growth, and will look different depending on the type of care the player provides. There are also NEW EGGS you can get which give you all new types of Hatchi!

Customise your Hatchi!! You can:
* Choose different backgrounds like the park or the beach!
* Use stickers to customise the background to give Hatchi a better environment!
* Change the color of your Hatchi's pixels!

How will YOU customise your Hatchi?

Play mini games!! including:
* The Hatchi Matchi memory game
* Hatchi Squares - play against your Hatchi!
* Roshambo - What Hatchi will you pick?
* Hatchi Catchi - move your Hatchi to catch falling food
* Its raining meds - avoid the meds!
* Whack a Hatchi - whack as many as you can!

and now our ALL NEW MULTIPLAYER BATTLING GAME!!

Feed, clean, play and watch it evolve over several days.

Say goodbye to your productivity. Say hello to your new friend. Gizmodo.com

It's hilarious, but I really, really, really don't want Big Poppa Pump (his Hatchi monster) to bite the dust. I've somehow bonded with the thing TouchArcade.com

The modern-day, old-school Tamagotchi-style virtual pet simulator by Portable Pixels is now available.

I don't understand the evolutions and how these things evolve. So if anyone can explain, it'd be appreciated.
My Hatchi went from being a lardass to now being winged with the wider horns after the update.
So, now there's octopi and torches... What else?

I agree with everything that's being said too, with different options for the Smarts and Active choices like food has. Mini-games would be fun. So would battles as well. Sleep mode is a must though.

I'm actually hoping for more evolutions!

Perhaps an evolution guide similar to those found in Tama instructions? Interactive in the options menu, kind of like a Pokedex? As you unlock evolutions, you unlock the data?

Just an idea...

So...how does feeding work? Do I *have* to remember to feed it every so often or it dies? I don't want to feel wedded to it, but the idea of the game is intriguing.

You can enable push notifications for it, which is what I did. I only get them twice or thrice a day, however, and usually at the beginning, middle and end of the day. It's very low maintenance compared to some other sims I've encountered.

I'm curious as to how these evolutions actually occur. Is it based on caretaking? Or completely random?

I think the set sleep times really need to be implemented. The pets need care every 3 or so hours, and in the am, are famished and smelly.

It's based on caretaking and which stats you choose to max out/leave empty/half full. Well, at least when the game first came out. I don't know about now, but it probably is.
