Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. for Android to bring virtual pet ownership back in style

by: David GonzalesFebruary 15, 2013


Up for a solid dose of nostalgia this weekend? Then turn off Airplane Mode, head on to Google Play, and get a copy of a new app called Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. installed on your Android device of choice right now. For those that don’t know – come on, really? – Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. is an app that is based on the “tamagotchi” virtual pets which became wildly popular in the 90s.

According to the app’s makers, the Tamagotchi is now better than it has ever been before. For starters, the pets are in color, but that’s not the only thing the app has going for it. Here’s a rather enthusiastic description of the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. app found on its official page on Google Play:

It’s Tamagotchi’s Sweet 16 this year and we’re giving you the gift!

Bandai has created the first ever Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. App, based on the original virtual pet, and it’s yours, FREE!

It’s just like the virtual pet you loved, only better; its in COLOR, features more characters and higher resolution and a place to keep your Tamagotchi collection.

It’s Tamagotchi To Go! on your ANDROID smartphone and tablet!

We want everyone to join in the celebration, so, tell your friends!

Indeed, all the people who will end up downloading and poking around this app probably will go out and tell their friends all about it. It can be downloaded and installed now on all Android tablets and smartphones that are running Android 2.3 Gingerbread or later. And as the description above says, it’s available free of charge.

Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. is available exclusively on Android for now, but it’s possible that it might be released for other platforms as well at some point in the future. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to provide my own new Tamagotchi some good old-fashioned neglect care and attention.

    These guys are the same little turds they always were. My phone buzzed to let me know the little guy was trying to get my attention so I opened the app to see what he wanted. It looked like he was staring intently at the side of the screen. A second later and he was quite pleased with himself.
    Ahh… the joys of digital parenting…
