Become Guardian Of Your Very Own Virtual Pet In ‘Hatchi’ On Android™

Would you like to become a guardian of your very own virtual pet on your Android™ based tablet or mobile device? Are you ready for the responsibility and ready for the hilarious fun this challenge offers you? Perhaps you are old enough to remember those keychain-sized virtual pets back in the 90s? Whether or not this is your first experience with a virtual pet, independent developer ‘Portable Pixels’ are offering you a unique opportunity to grow, and care for, your very own retro virtual pet!

Caring for your virtual pet involves going through several stages of growth. This is accomplished by continually and consistently feeding your pet different kinds of food when it is hungry, cleaning up after your pet when hygiene runs low, playing with your pet by bouncing a ball, and even reading a book to make your pet smarter! You can also play mini games. In the eventuality that your little guy (or girl) becomes sick, it is also your responsibility to give it medicine, and a series of bars at the top of your screen provides an overview of your pet’s current status and health. Over time, your pet will develop a unique personality depending on the quality of care you give it, and happy pets are the ones given plenty of attention and affection! Before you know it, you will have bonded with your pet in ways you never thought possible!

‘Hatchi’ will have you immersed in its virtual retro world in no time, and you will quickly become emotionally attached to the game despite its rudimentary visuals, which are purposely kept simple to focus on the core gameplay mechanics, a tribute to retro gaming! The game has previously been released on iOS® where it has quickly gained a large following of fans and accomplished some incredible milestones: it has been in the top-10 paid games for kids in the US, and has been credited as the number #1 kids game in UK, Germany, Australia, Spain, Holland and several other counties!

With ‘Hatchi’ available on Android™ you can wave goodbye to your productivity and say ‘hello’ to your new virtual friend. The game is available as a paid download as well as a FREE limited version that allows you to grow your virtual pet to the teenage level.

‘Hatchi’ is available on Google Play™ from here:
