Tamagotchi Reborn as a Free App

Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. Title Screen

After having two straight days of pain, puking, and passing out on the living room floor (stupid kidney stone), the release on the new Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. app on Android has made my day.

The app is a celebration of Tamagotchi turning sixteen years old.  This nostalgia overload is also completely free!  I tried some of the Tamagotchi clones on the marketplace, but none of them felt right.  My egg shaped hole has now been filled.

As you can see, there are two different views for the app.  You can play it in Toy or App mode, and you can even switch between them on the fly.  You can also take in game pics, so that means you don't need a rooted Android and screen shot app to get pictures.

After my first little dude hatched, I unlocked a new shell and background.  As of right now, there are twenty wallpapers and thirteen shells to unlock.  They all unlock when you raise a certain number of digital pets and earn stars in the game.

Aaww, look at his first little poo!

I'm fully expecting this guy to die soon, because I will probably forget to take care of him.  Either that, or I won't think about it while I am at work next week.  Or maybe I'll be able to run this one better than the actual toy version I had all those years ago.  I guess we'll see!

Anyway, go download it now.  It's free!
