Time Waster: Tamagotchi Pets Return As Android App

February 15, 2013


I never owned a Tamagotchi keychain pet in the 90's because I'm not a girl and I was born with absolutely zero nurturing instincts. But maybe you did have one. And maybe now you want to rekindle that feeling of a new pet dying every day and piss away your phone battery at the same time. Enter the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. Android app from Bandai and Sync Beats Entertainment. It's a Tamagotchi keychain, but on your phone. Truthfully, I can't even believe I'm writing about it because it's 80-degrees outside and my body is begging me to finish work so I can go get a beer on a patio somewhere. I let myself down a LOT, but not when it comes to keeping drinking promises. That's like, one thing I'm good at. "Wow, such a triumph of the human spirit." I can't tell if you're being facetious or not but I also don't care because it's Friday and I am OUT OF HERE, SUCKERS. *slams laptop, waits a few minutes, then slowly reopens and keeps working* I hate the sun anyways. "But what about the beer?" The beer! *smashes laptop over knee, dives out window*

Hit the jump for a video.

Thanks to Rosa, who asked me if I wanted to hear the names of all her Tamagotchi pets but I graciously declined and now I'm kind of regretting it. *sigh* What might have been.

    Not really much of a time waster, as there is not a lot to do with it. Feed, play a few rounds of rock,paper,scissors, clean up its dodo. Simple. It is a pretty stable app though, thumbs up.

    Just when you think there is enough crap in this world, some people want to download more crap and waste time in it's stink, just because of boredom. Try helping out a real pet or real kid... ughhh!

    Most of Geekologie is awesome and cool, but a lot of it is a statement to the world of WTF is this world coming to?... this is WTF.

    I wonder if people like Sheldon from BBT will be able to data transfer their old tamagotchis if they still have them onto the app?? I doubt it but something to wonder.

  • 90skidnerd

  • Disrupts

  • ZomBBombeR

    You do see the redundancy right?

    The tamagotchi Neo is going to be really confused when he becomes aware of the code in this...

  • I worked, part time, in a toy shop back when these were big.The company got some cheap imports, with the instructions on the back translated directly from the Japanese in to English. I spent an afternoon crossing out the word shit with a black marker pen.

    No one in their right mind would go back to the crap fest that is Tamagotchi.

    Not all of Tamagotchis were for girls, one year for Christmas I got a Rancor Tamagotchi and it was awesome. If you press the button to give him a doctor's check up when he wasn't sick he would eat the doctor.

    I'm soooo disappointed that it's not available in my country! I had been looking forward to it! (Yes, I'm a girl, go ahead and judge me).
