It’s been a years since I’ve last heard of Tamagotchi games. Cute little electronic egg-shaped devices with virtual pets in it; looks like Bandai Corporation failed in Tama marketing and buried the brand for good. Nevertheless, I was pleasantly surprised to discover online versions of this amazing game. Several flash game websites feature Tamagotchi online games of different sorts. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to locate exact copy of the first generation tama games. But the ones I found, some of them are pretty decent.
There is a major downside though, all Tamagotchi Online games I was able to find are flash based. Which means you can’t actually save the game progress. However, some of these games automatically save progress if you keep your browser cookies alive, which isn’t very comforting but still. I’ve been trying to find CD/DVD version or console Tamagotchi games but it seems, that idea isn’t attractive enough for game publishers. Game is more suitable for mobile devices but I was never a fan of mobile gaming. Reason why I’m starting this blog is to find Tamagotchi Online games and to share links with other people. If you know any good or even bad Tamagotchi games, feel free to post the links on this blog.
I was able to find so far: Digimon Tamagotchi, Virtual dog and Virtual cat, some other tama cat game, and couple of more I found on Armorgames.com.
It is ironic that Bandai official website doesn’t have a single Tama game on official website. I guess they’ve completely dropped the idea after what happened to second generation of these games. Though, I know as a fact that in Japan and some other Asian countries, Tama is still very popular.
