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!!
Play Hatchi Battle with your Game Center friends and see who wins!

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

If you have any issues with the game or you just want to say hello, you can email us: support@portablepixels.com

I would love to see it as similar to a digimon, where you can battle others. More evolution paths would also be good as it looks like theres only one path.

We had never expected it to get as much attention as it has, as well as the huge amount of constructive feedback. Were glad that you guys see the potential of what has started off as such a simple nostalgic app, and look forward to hearing any other suggestions. Currently we have started working on a small update, fixing a few things and incorporating a couple of the ideas you have suggested. We have also taken some of the bigger ideas into account and hope to implement those in future updates. We just wanted to let you know that we love hearing what you guys think, and will be continually working to improve Hatchi for everyone.

Thanks,

My hero.

Also, hello everyone in the Touch Arcade forums. I have a giant collection of games on my 3GS as a result of this site.

I've posted reviews in the Apple review area. There are a lot of great ideas there too.

I look forward to the development of this app. I was reluctant to pay the dollar into the simplicity of a pocket pet clone, but the exposure here gave me some confidence it would be an investment. Also, there isn't really anything else like it in the App store.

The only thing I ask is to avoid in-game currencies that require in-app purchase. This type of game is rife with opportunities like that. The simple graphics and interface should remain basically untouched, but of course I can think of 100 things to add to the game. I won't ramble it off here, everyone else already has.

So I'm assuming child-teenager-adult for the stages? I hope they add more stages in the future, since newborn-toddler-child-teenager-adult-senior seems a more realistic progression to me. They have a decent foundation in place, though.
