    Firstly, keep your eyes open for screenshots because i cba uploading any atm.

    Okay, when i bought this game i was thinking 1.19 for a temagotchi is pretty cheap, but then i opened the game, it gives you a short tutorial and then you get to play about/feed him or her.

    The graphics don't look as good as they do in the picture even though the movements on the hair is absolutely amazing (when he jumps up and down his strands of hair do in the same way).


    Your temagotchi or iGotchi as they'd like me to call it can come in three colours, but once you pick a name for it you cannot change its name again.

    As a temagotchi simulator it is somewhat lacking as it's fairly easy to keep him alive, all you have to do is tap the food or water icon, if he wants to play you stroke his stomach - which is very annoying because he does the same noise every time you touch him, although at first its a novelty it does become wary.

    The thing that makes this game worth the money (£1.19) is that it does have other things along side him in the "care centre" , you can find out your love with him and if he loves you, also it gives you a personality of your Gotchi.

    Overall, i rate this application 2.6/5 the price is good and the app is good in terms of graphical ability (even if it does have pixelated legs) the game is very shallow and becomes very boring, very quickly. Its good just to have a Gotchi on your iPod because as far as i know it can die.

    Nope, and there isn't really any customisation abilities, i at least hoped to put a hat on its head. Hopefully an update will include customisation and EYES haha.
