a few months back i bought a genjintch, the 'caveman tamagotchi,' but barely played with it. i remember i paused it because it was simply too needy as a toddler (teen?) and the sounds it makes, while cute and charming at first, end up getting annoying (double beeps ALL the time!? no ty!). a few days ago i picked it back up and decided to give it another go. i thought it was SO needy but powered through, mostly giving it candy to keep its happiness up, and got the second monkey adult down the growth chart. i figured he'd be less needy as an adult but no! not even! he's as needy, if not needier. it's rather unpleasant. i've filled his discipline bar max, too, as an adult, and am wondering when these tamagotchis actually die? i've read that they regress if treated poorly, but it hasn't happened to me. how badly must i treat it? for how long? will it die if i keep taking care of him? wouldn't it regress before dying? therefore never dying..? he's 6 right now. might he change into a secret character by 7? does anyone have specific information about the secret characters? e.g. what care to give what character, general age range, etc..
the neediness factor is what really gets me. the animations et al are adorable, but the neediness + volume of sound kills meee. there's not much info about this one online, either! i'd say the neediness matches one of an umino right now, although i haven't played with an umino in a while. i did hatch one last night but only took care of the baby stage then it went to bed promptly after it changed. i'm going to compare both side by side today when they wake up !
