Best Tamagotchi for Vacation?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm brand new to Tamagotchi collecting and I'm not sure what tamas to get! I currently have a pink anniversary M!X with everything unlocked and a V5 Tamagotchi Connection that I got in the mail two days ago. I just made my tamatalk account today and I read through everything, but if I'm in the wrong place please let me know and I'll be sure to look at things more carefully in the future.

 

My question is, what kind of Tamagotchi is best for being on vacation? B)

 

We always travel by car and I can't drive, so I'd like a Tamagotchi that has really good mini games, or maybe just a variety of mini games/things to do. Since we're in the car I also need one that has decent battery life. I would like one that isn't too well needy, as once we're actually at our vacation spot I likely won't be able to spend too too much time with it, though checking it every once in a while or pausing it I have no issue with. I'll be in the car with other people so the ability to mute it would be highly appreciated. I know there's one Tamagotchi that you can get an app for and download content onto? I'm not certain it'll work on my phone (iPhone 6+), or if it needs the internet to do so, but I'm open to getting something cheap that may work with it. I have a fair amount of money I can spend though I'd prefer not to spend over $100, and honestly $50 is where I start to get iffy.

 

I will and can gladly research different Tamagotchis and see which ones I like the most, not to mention my birthday is here in just a few days and I've asked for some Tamas from that too, though the most likely gift will be cash, and that only gives me more room to figure out my car entertainment plans.

 

I'm open to looking at non-Tamagotchi virtual pets as well, though since I know how to get better information on Tamagotchi's I'd prefer those! I'm open to any suggestions, thank you so much and have a nice day! :)

 

 

TLDR; I go on a lot of summer car trips and would like a virtual pet (Tamagotchi preference) to play with on the road. I need something with plenty to do and a good battery life that isn't too needy/can be paused and can be muted as well. A point in the right direction or any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thank you! :wub:

Some kind of an English connection perhaps, English connections have the most games usually. Maybe a v3 or a v4-v4.5. They're not too needy and a battery can usually last in them for a few months.

An iD L is also a decent canditate if you can find a cheap one, though to get more than 2 built in games in it you'd need a phone with an irda.

I think a Tamagotchi School would also be fun, though you don't raise anything in it, you have a goal of getting as many students in it as possible.

Thank you so much! I'm open to other suggestions and tips about why whatever would be best but I'll certainly look into and research those! I don't believe my phone can download anything to an iD L but I'll go and look into that too just in case. ^_^ Ty!

Irda phones are absolete by now, in order to download things into an iD L you'd need an old model either way (like an old flip phone or just an old Nokia), I think its worth it but i know in a lot of countries its kind of hard to find something like that easily. But the two games built into iD L are still pretty fun and theres a plenty of things to do in this version. But overall i'd look into connections, especially the v4 line.

There are some English models on JYW for a pretty good price right now:

Dang! When I was making my birthday wishlist there was hardly any english tamas I was interested in up :( I may still get something for myself from JYW though, I'm looking at reviews and stuff right now and I'm really interested in both the v4 and v4.5s! Hopefully I'll come up with a decision soon enough so I can order before my trips.

the connections are indeed nice for car trips, my childhood can confirm. its just bad if you drive during the night and cant get a light on it. otherwise go for it.

 

getting a tama you can download games on, like ID L or P's, will probably give you nice variety since you can change the games

(although you can only have 2 built in and 2 downloadable games at the same time, so you have to delete/send new games with the IDR phone)

list of downloadable games: ID L P's

 

iPhone 6+ is not 4u compatible

oo! Thank you! ^_^ We may drive a tad during the night, its a 2 day car trip and we're going to make road-side attraction stops, but I don't think it'll be a problem. My phone is plenty bright and the babies will probably be in bed themselves after not too long.

 

It sucks that my phone isn't 4U compatible, I remember when I was looking for my very first Tamagotchi I was really interested in a 4U but I could never figure out if my phone was compatible or not, and I didn't want to find out through disappointing means... :(

it was kind of unique, broke the formula of tamagotchi in both design and gameplay

      I’d like to see the cafe put into use. Like a cake decorating game or a sweets matching game.
      There’s a building under construction too and I wonder if that’s decorative or it’s a possible new feature that hasn’t been added. Maybe it can be something just for none adult Tamagotchi since the dating game is for adults only? Like a Kids Palace with something that you can move your Tama through an obstacle course and the faster you complete it the better the prize?
      I also wish that along with a new visitor every month we got new prizes for winning the restaurant and fruits catching game.
      Also I wish we could transfer gotchi points we won without needing an item. It’s annoying that we need to have a item to transfer in order to get the option to transfer gotchi points too.

      So, I just got a new 4U+ (my previous tamas have been v3, v4, v4.5, and v5, lol), and I need a bit of help figuring some things out, as my Japanese is limited at best, and I'm pretty crap at reading it.
       
      How do you play the mini game at the park, and how do you play the Kuchipatchi donut game that is downloaded via touchspot or Mr. Blinky's app.
       
      I understand the part of the park minigame, where you have to press the buton according to the letter above the dancing tamagotchis, but when it gets up to the two consecutive letters I always lose.
       
      Thank you so much for your help!!!

      So for either my son or girlfriend, I was thinking of picking up a Tamagotchi.
      I was expecting ~£5 like when I was younger, and when I was younger I've owned a couple tamagotchi and a couple digimon-tamagotchi, but I'm 22 and this was years ago.
       
      I remember it used to be just a feed, praise etc. and there wasn't mutch to it other than just keep checking on it so it doesn't die, clean up, feed etc. as prompted.
       
      Now I look on these forums and theres all of the v5, Tamagotchi go, and other talk about new features that I'm not really understanding?
      So, if you can, can you answer a few questions for me, to somebody who might as well have never owned a tamagotchi.
      Firstly, is there anything to "do" other than care for your tamagotchi, I'm reading these posts as a collectors twist, new characters, wallpapers?, trades, and working through generations to get preffered characters.
      Will getting these things "unlock" anything, or will I be able to see a track record/bestiary of collected "things"?
       
      Are these supposed to connect to a computer?
       
      Can these trade or otherwise interact with other tamagotchi?
       
      What's a decent price?
       
      Is Tama-go the "latest and greatest"?
       
      If I buy a new tama, will I have to worry about getting an "old version"?
       
      I've seen this on amazon, and that's basically what I'm seeing as "the thing to buy", but I've seen a few with supposed colour screens or better graphics.:
      http://www.amazon.co.uk/TamaTown-Tamagotchi-Tama-Go-Greem-Mametchi/dp/B0030G7J9G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387206459&sr=8-1&keywords=Tamagotchi+Go
       
      Or do I want the newer tamagotchi friends?
       
      If I were to grab that, do I need to worry about buying more physical tamagotchi physcial character toys?
       
      In other words, I want to get a tamagotchi and ~£10 - ~£15 isn't a big deal, but if I get one and they're basically exactly the same as when I was young, I'll be dissapointed because I expect something with more... depth from this.
       
      I want to know if I'll be able to actually play with these and often have something new to look forward to instead of just the same game I knew that is the same over and over after 5 minutes.
       
       
      (I'm thinking like Animal Crossing, that games a grind, but it's just a nice and steady pace to enjoy, right?)
       
      tl;dr
      If this was too long, just shoot me to the best run-down of what these actually DO nowadays, because I need to know what I'm buying before I buy and I don't just want three options to interact with the little dude or lass.
       
      (Oh, also, does it matter which colour/character tama you buy, or is it just a physical aesthetic)

      On June, I'll go to Japan and decide to buy Tama Profy. Before I buy Tama Profy, I searched some features about Tama Profy. But its kinda hard. So, who knows or who had a Tama Profy, can you tell me about some features in Tama Profy?

      (Not sure if this was the right place to put it but it's close enough) So, do you read in the car, or do you get really dizzy? For me it's ok if I read for a short time, but if I read for a long time I get really dizzy and feel like I have to puke. My mom and sister can read in the car without a problem though, my dad and other sister can't. Strangely enough, I never get dizzy on rollercoasters and I have never puked on one either. (even though once I ate a hot dog right before riding on one and it was the kind that spun you around a lot)
