Ouchi Mainichi Tamagotchi review

Recommended Posts

As I have a Japanese 3DS and some Tamagotchi 3DS games, I have decided to review them, starting with Ouchi Mainichi Tamagotchi or 'Everyday House Tamagotchi'.

244409_front.jpg

 

The game is kind of a house simulation game with mini-games and goals. You start with a rather empty house with only a couple of rooms/mini-games available [each room has its own mini-game]. Play the mini-games a lot to unlock more stuff such as more rooms/games, colors for your house, and furniture and characters to buy. I wish there were more mini-games available at the start of the game because having to play them so many times to unlock more is a bit off-putting but the fun really kicks off once you unlock more rooms.

 

Each mini-game involves a household chore such as vacuuming, cleaning the toilet, or hanging out the laundry, but the mini-games are a lot more fun than they sound. You earn money which you can use to buy furniture, characters, wallpapers, carpets, etc. Then, you can decorate your house to your heart's content [or rather, to the limit of how much stuff you can have in one room]. It's very fun to put characters where-ever you want in various scenarios. You can sit Lovelitchi and Melodytchi on a couch in front of the TV, or you can make Himespetchi watch Mametchi sleep, or you can even make Kuchipatchi look as if he's raiding the fridge. The characters don't walk around [although they do change their pose/face expression and talk via speech balloons], so it's entirely up to you where you want them to be. You can change the arrangement of your house and characters whenever you like.

 

The games are easy at first but when you play a game a certain number of times, it will change to a higher difficulty. Higher difficulties also means you get more Gotchi if you win. But even so, you have to play games lots and lots to afford some pieces of furniture, which is one flaw in this game since it can take forever to get all the furniture you want. My favorite mini-game is the barbeque one where you have to cook food on the barbeque for the characters without burning it. It's a bit hard on the highest difficulty because the characters are impatient and sometimes try to steal the food, and you have to blow into the microphone every so often to keep the heat going. But it's still super enjoyable.

 

A nifty feature of this game is that you can choose whatever music you want to hear as you play. You just go to the radio and it will have a list of songs with their radio frequencies. You use the 3DS's circle pad to change the frequency number to find the song. As you progress you get to unlock more songs. Quite a few of the songs sound really great. There are some Tamagotchi songs with singing in the mix, as well as songs of various genres like classical and heavy metal haha.

 

There are lots of characters to unlock, including some we haven't seen much of. The way you unlock stuff is by achieving stuff in your goal list; goals are usually things like 'play the sewing game 15 times' or 'collect every member of the Mame family'. The goals add play value to the game as something to aim for. The game is one that'll last a long time if you want to accomplish all the goals and unlock/buy all the stuff.

 

You can also customize the colors of your house by choosing the main color, accent color, roof color, and door color.

 

Here are miscellaneous minor features I'd like to tell you about -

  • You can open and close the window curtains using the L and R buttons; sometimes the characters will comment on the scariness of the dark if you close the curtains.
  • Sometimes the rooms get dusty and you have to blow in the microphone to clean them.
  • There's a koi pond where you can go fishing and name the fish if you catch one. Sometimes you get money if you catch a fish.
  • Sometimes the doorbell will ring; answer it and there might be a gift from the Gotchi King.

 

That's about it for now.

 

In conclusion, it's great for Tamagotchi fans and recommended to those who also enjoy Animal Crossing. There is a nice array of mini-games and all the goals make it a game that can last a long time, and again, it's super fun to decorate your house and put the characters where ever you'd like.

 

Next time, I'll review Tamagotchi Sessions of Dream School.

It's a shame my knowledge of Japanese is limited, because this sounds like a fun game. Nice review!

      I am making a guess that this is the right place to put this but honestly I don’t know if it is. 
      Anyway I want to pre order a tamagotchi P!x because tamagotchis usually sell out really quickly in my area. I also live in a rural area so stores don’t get deliveries more than like once a month and if I don’t pre order it there’s a good chance I have to wait years to get it. 
      the only problem I’ve encountered is the camera on the P!x. I need to know how much you have to use it to care for your friend or if there might be a way to get out of having to use it.  I’m blind so the camera might provide a huge problem for me depending on how much I have to use it. The touch keys shouldn’t be a problem so long as the tama still makes some sort of sound. 
      I know no one is going to know for sure but the more I can start getting an idea of if I’ll even be able to use it the better. That way I don’t have to waste my time with it if I can’t. (I’ll still feel a little bit left out because the newer ones are getting less and less accessible to me and honestly I have a feeling that soon I’ll have to just stop getting the new ones all together)
      thabks !

      A while ago, I bought 2 used Tamagotchi Connections at a pawn shop. They worked just fine, but the battery cover screw was corroded in both of them:


      I searched the internet for ways to remove the corrosion. Some people would even use ketchup, but the most effective way was letting the screws sit in vinegar, then using a toothbrush to remove the rest of the corrosion, and finally cleaning them with alcohol. However, due to me being busy with school, a year passed and I still hadn't tried cleaning the screws, until a few days ago when I had some spare time and decided to try it out. I thought, why not demonstrate the whole process on TamaTalk to help people out? 
       
      First, I removed the screws from the battery covers. Tamagotchi Connection battery covers have some sort of retainer that keeps the screw from falling out. To remove the screw, I had to hold the retainer using my fingernail, then pull on the screw while twisting it counterclockwise. Now, both the screw and the retainer came out. The retainer was also a bit corroded, as well as the screw hole in the battery cover. I cleaned those with alcohol.
      Now, the fun part. I let the screws sit in apple cider vinegar for around 30 minutes.

      Then, I scrubbed them with a toothbrush several times. Both the screws came out looking way better, but one of them still had some ugly black marks where the corrosion was. As a last resort, I sandpapered it. I have no idea what the exact grit of the sandpaper was, but eyeing it, it seemed to be around ~200 grit. This improved the appearance of the screw drastically. Here are the results!


      Comparing it to a non-corroded screw of another tama, the finish looks less shiny. But it's a lot better than a corroded screw! 
      I hope this tutorial was easy to understand! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

      Heya,new to tamagotchi.
      Found a morino tamagotch in a thrift store
      But it wasn't working so i replaced the very old batteries with semi old ones.
      It kinda worked until the batteries ran out
      Though i noticed that theres something wrong
      Like,it turns off and on with a light slap
      So it means egg after egg after egg
      Then i bought some new ones but while screwing it on to close the screen fades to nothing
      But when the lid isnt fully closed,it works just fine.though that'd make it hard to put in a bag or my pocket
      Also works without the lid except everytime the batteries move it turns off then on again.
