What's this?! ANOTHER Tamagotchi game? This time on N64, my first ever console that I learned to play by myself?!
(First of all, I realize that nowadays, Tamagotchi is more a female thing, but the only reason I fanboy over it is because I'm a 90's kid and I grew up with these things. I've actually been a Gotchi fan for quite a while. Anyway.)
NOT MY VIDEO DON'T KILL ME!
So after Bandai blessed the world with the gift of adorable little keychain pets that grow up to be 30, apparently it gained huge success not only in America but Japan as well, spawning a slew of video games including the GBC game I grew up with, the N64 game you see here, and when Tamagotchi Connexion came around it spawned three DS games, a few 3DS games and a Wii game called Tamagotchi PARTY ON! [which I'm assuming is called Minna de Tamagotchi World 2 or something in Japan, I'm not sure.] Looks pretty interesting, eh?
How it works is, four players take turns competing to see who can raise their Tamagotchi better. During each player's turn, their Tama can act just like they do as keychain pets, getting hungry/full, happy/sad/mad, wanting attention, and yes, dying eventually. If your pet dies, you're out of the game. Last one standing wins! (Oh, and they talk in this game, which I think is pretty neat.)
