Remember When Virtual Pets Were All The Rage?!

(London, England) - They say there’s a Hatchi born every minute… and that’s just the beginning of the fun. Hatchi, by Portable Pixels Ltd., is a retro app rebooted for a new generation of fun-loving virtual pet owners. iPhone users can now nurture, clean, feed and play with their pets, right from their device.

The Hatchi reboot comes with all the things you love about virtual pets. Your Hatchi monster will go through several stages of growth (if you are a nurturing parent!), and will develop differently depending on the quality of care the player provides. A successfully raised Hatchi monster will be smarter, happier and require less attention.

Notifications remind pet owners when their little monsters need attention. You can also share Hatchi experience through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Other fun, new additions include:

·         New Food

o   Including apples, bread, cake, ice cream and turkey legs

·         Evolution

o   From egg, baby, child, teenager and adult

o   Several new forms your Hatchi can take (more than double the earlier versions)

·         New Endings

o   Take your adult Hatchi to the Forest Sanctuary to let him/her live his/her life in peace

o   Go to the Hatchi graveyard to lay your friends to rest

·         And, umm, pooping… seriously, it was the most requested new feature
