Hiii! Hayden wanted me to do a log of the Tamagotchi Friends so I will. In this log I will post updates on what characters I get, as well as other discoveries, opinions, and stuff. So yeah~
There were three eggs - one with spots, one with stripes, and one with a heart. I chose the spotty egg at first but it gave a girl, so I reset and chose the stripy egg. It gave a boy. I know that the heart egg gives girls as well so this is the most likely speculation:
- Spotty Egg - Random Gender
- Stripy Egg - Male
- Heart Egg - Female
The egg hatched into Aokumotchi. For some reason he didn't seem nearly as needy as the baby stages on most other versions. He got sick once and he took a nap during the middle of his baby stage, like on generally all Tamagotchis we are familiar with, and then he evolved into a toddler, Mitsumarutchi. The evolution animation is fancier than on previous versions.
When I was first playing with my Tamagotchi Friends I did notice that the character as well as the poops can blend in with the background. But after a short time, I had gotten used to it, and in a well-lit room the screen looks perfectly fine! (I have no electricity or light power in my room so I have an old lamp with an extension cord leading to a different room of the house). So yeah, the screen may look bad to some people at first but you get used to it!
The battery compartment has a very different design from all other Tamagotchis but it reminds me of the battery compartment in many other toys I've seen. I wish I could take a photo of it but then the batteries be out and so I'd have to reset (or rather, download) but I don't feel like doing that at the moment.
By playing Mimic, I have seen the sprites of the other raisable characters. The adult sprites are huge compared to the other stages but that's pretty good I guess. I have seen Maimaitchi, Cosmotchi, Bokuhoshitchi, Neotchi, Nokobotchi, Puchihanatchi, Painaputchi, Kuchipatchi, Memetchi, Mametchi, Acchitchi, Righttchi, and Coffretchi... maybe a few others but I'm forgetful.
As for the Tamagotchi Friends design itself, it just feels so comfortable in my hand! The buttons are pleasant to press, and the sound is just perfect; not as sharp as the Connection sounds and not as fuzzy as the Tama-Go sounds. The back of the Tamagotchi is heavier than the rest so when you put it down on a desk or something it just goes PLONK! Somehow this Tamagotchi seems heavier than the Tama-Go even though it is obviously smaller. I think it would look better if the shell wasn't like, divided into so many sections. It's fine on the iD L-looking ones since the "sections" are different colors for the design and such but it looks strange on the white leopard design, as well as the pink heart design, but the blue with spots design is ok with this shell structure I think.
I should talk about my actual character. XD He is age 0 and weighs 7lb. I noticed that the bread I gave him made his weight go up by two, and another time, something I bought from the meal shop didn't make his hungry meter go up?! Weird. Anyway I have 3,280 Gotchi Points and I have only bought one jewelry item, the Ring of Love or something like that. I will continue to buy more! Did I mention how much I love the sprites for the character close-ups and many of the jewelry items? Absolutely gorgeous! <3
The characters I have seen at the park so far are Amiamitchi, Hanafuwatchi, and Chochotchi. The characters that appear at the park are unraisable ones, like on the iD L and P's and unlike the Tama-Go.
Random photo time! My first photo was taken when it was kinda dark, and I had the camera flash on. but the other three photos are better because I had the TF next to a lamp and turned the flash off my camera.
