Qpet Qolor Questions

Recommended Posts

Me and my friend are intrigued by the Qpet Qolor knock off, and I got a couple questions for anyone who has one. Luckily I found someone who has them for $10 with a coupon, so money won't be too wasted on it.

 

1- What is the battery life like?

2- If the batts die, is all progress lost or will it still be saved?

3- Can the screen light be toned down or turned off? Does the game ever switch off or have a screensaver, or is it always on?

4- What sort of compatibility does it have with another Qolor, since the goal is to play with my friend?

5- Would you recommend it? We really just want something to play together, and it looks like a decent substitute for getting something more expensive and that we'd have to mess with translating. I really don't mind knock offs so the fact that it isn't a real Tama doesn't bother us. I also want it now for the novelty and to see what other characters were jacked and planted in this, after I saw Patrick from Spongebob in it on a Youtube vid.

1) Roughly 2 to 1 and a half weeks (feel free to correct me on this since I can't recall exactly).

2) The QPet will save your progress.

3) Unfortunately, brightness can't be adjusted. The only thing that can be changed is sound on/off by holding B. The screen turns off to save power after a few seconds.

4) It can visit, send gifts, or marry other Q-Pets.

5) Yes. It is really easy to take care of. The only basic feature it lacks is pausing the clock. They go for $15-$25 now, so getting 2 won't break the bank. It has less things than the real TMGC+C but is a great substitute.

 

Btw... It's worth checking out because the QPet has a really weird mashup of original and custom sprites. I won't spoil anything, but let's just say one of the characters is abnormally smaller than the others.

Now, I can’t answer any of them, but I can tell you that it will be similar to Bandai tamas. Oh and, the battery life will probably not be great, it should come with them and from what my friend tells me, hers only lasted 2 weeks.

Sorry, don’t know how that happened. I must have clicked on a wrong button, you know me!

Yeah, the battery life is only about 2 weeks or so.  You can't adjust the brightness. You can mute it by holding the B button for about 5 seconds, but the sound on these is so quiet anyway, so why bother?  One of mine is almost mute as it is.  They do connect to each other just fine.  I have 2 of them.  One even swears (says "Shi**y if you do badly in the games; the other just says "Poor").  It is very similar to the +color tama.  I will spoil it--Patrick Star is the travel agent and he is tiny.  I would get one very soon, as they might be pulled for copyright infringements. They are a lot of fun though, and the games are the same as on the +color.

Oh yeah I forgot they included him :D As far as “inappropriate” content goes, there’s also the guy at the Mortage shop who smokes...

There’s also weird sprite errors like Mametchi’s eyes being too small, and blank spaces on some sprites, especially Makiko. *And here’s my spoiler*- ShimaShimatchi is way smaller than the other adults for some reason! 

And yes, get them while you still can. Even the Tamagezi, which has 99% original content, got (iirc) pulled down a few months after they got popular. It’s honestly amazing that these QPets haven’t been taken down yet almost a year later.

Hasn't Tamagezi been pulled down because the company fell apart? That's what I heard. 

Though it might also be because it used licensed anime artwork on the package...

Some users on YouTube said Bandai went after the company because they used a similar name and stole some of the Tamagotchi icons. Maybe it’s a combination of all those things? Who knows. That’s the weird part with bootleg toys.

Oh, and one last thing about the QPet, it unlocks a job feature at age 3, which can be used for easy Gotchipoints. Although it doesn’t give much, you can spam it until you get a ton of money. This is important as QPets refuse to eat the default food after 2 bowls are filled, so buying food is a must. (Plus there are different interiors to buy.) For happiness, you can just send it to the park a bunch of times.

Hi! Does it automatically save progress? I replaced my qpet's batteries today and it restarted :(

It saves. It should allow you to choose to continue or just continue automatically. I have three of these. The earlier model that swears and the newer version.

Is it necessary to connect with another or does the matchmaker appear?

After the QPet turns 4 you have to manually go to the Matchmaker under the Door icon. This is just like real Color Tamagotchis.

(Say, for anyone thinking of getting one there’s a new and improved version that just came out w/ micro USB charging and changeable face plates... They cost as much as the old version.)

Thanks for this information! Did you already buy the new Qpet version and if so, how would you review it?

Nope, not yet, but I do have a Touma Pet (similar thing w/ different graphics + some new features) and that’s pretty good. The rechargeable battery makes it really thin and lightweight.

Thank you, I'm glad you mentioned this because I'm interested in buying a fake virtual pet. However, I'm not sure whether I should buy a Qpet (not the new one) or a Touma Pet .

Which device do you like better, and for what reasons?

P.S. It is worth to mention that I am less likely to buy a Touma Pet because with the price and everything (to order it where I live), it comes off the same as if I were to buy a Meets for example haha. Whereas the Qpet is affordable in aliexpress :)
