More then a decade has passed since we had last heard about the virtual pets which people used to own (hang in their necks) and adore like crazy  specially the young ladies of that era. Time passed by and these cute little virtual pets started to abandon their owners till a time came when these creatures were no more……Till Now !! Thanks to the folks at Portable Pixels Limited who have released their Hatchi app, a Tamagotchi clone which allows you to raise digital pets, and  is available for $0.99 in the Google Play Store

This app stays true to the 8-bit style of the original devices to offer fond memories of one’s childhood. While there’s a lot of sentiment to be had with the real deal hanging around our necks, we love the idea of having it on our phones instead. Just as with the keychain-sized Tamagotchi pets, Android 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 so the better you care for them, the more obedient and well behaved they’l turn out to be.

Anyone interested to go back in time and start raising their very own virtual Android pet ?
