As soon as the Tamagotchi virtual pet was launched, children were separated into those who had and those who wanted to have. There was also the RakuRaku Dinokun, a similar version of the toy that became popular in our country in the 1990s.
Over time, the fun disappeared. But now, with the age of smartphones, virtual pets have made a comeback. And they bring different styles and features. Check out 8 virtual pet apps below!
1. My Tamagotchi Forever
My Tamagotchi Forever is the virtual pet app from Bandai, the maker of the late Tamagotchi. The application offers a more modern version of the game, with 3D graphics and more interaction options.
In the mobile version, there are several types of little monsters to care for from birth to adulthood. You can clean their necessities, put them to sleep, tickle them and play minigames with them.
