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.

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.


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.
