Side Note~

Recently, I’ve found a screenshot of a game that claims to have been released for the iPod 3rd and 4th generations. I am good when it comes to iPhones, but I know little about the iPods. 

Luckily, my sister has an older one and so does my grandad. Now, I doubt they would be able to be downloaded ( I don’t really know, but its a guess ) but if anyone has any information I’d love to get a hold of it.

Now, in to the real point! :D 

Here is the only piece of evidence I could find on the whole internet. Seriosly! This is it along with a single article here~

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.engadget.com/amp/2008/11/06/new-ipod-game-tamagotchi/

It says 2008. That’s when it was most likely released. And there’s a pretty neat picture, too.

If anyone knows anything else- please let me know!

I found this by typing "tamagotchi ipod" into google https://gizmodo.com/ipod-tamagotchi-thrills-half-assed-pet-owners-everywher-5079736

Not sure if it's any use - but I did get a lot of possible suggestions and links so there's certainly more info out there on the 'net.

Yeah, this isn't something that really depends what model of iPod / iPhone you have, it's just that it released around that time, around 2008 or so. If you want to play it today you'd need the iOS app file for it (which wouldn't be easy to get) as well as an iPod or iPhone running a version of iOS before iOS 11, as iOS 11 dropped support for 32-bit applications.

It's been a while since I played it, but you're not missing too much. The game is pretty short and involves telling your Tamagotchi where to poop to fertilise trees in order to harvest its fruit. As I recall, there was also a minigame similar to the rhythm game osu! in which your character would do a rain dance to aid the growth of the trees.

Yes! In fact, I do have an iPhone 4s that is on iOS 7.3.2. 

Do you have any ideas where I could find the link? Does any website have a specific meaning to find games with the same type of files? If they are hard to find, I doubt anyone would or could get a hold of them on this site. Unless, you know of any ;)

Thank You for the links- I think they might work on my 4S.

When I tried mindlessly on my 6S ( The current version of iPhone I have at this moment in time ) It says to download the iTunes Store. ( I haven’t already got it because it isint necessary for my phone and how I use it ) So, I do; and of course it’s outdated! What did I expect. It simply says “ Cannot connect to iTunes Store “. 

This is where I have concerns- my iPhone 4 has all of the current new releases and articles on the App Store. It’s just that I can’t get the majority of them because they are iOS 9 ( roughly ) and up. And iTunes? I’m not completely sure. I never used it in the period of time that I used that phone, but I suspect it will be similar. 

For more information on iOS 7 if it’s necessary-

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS_7

( I’m not sure if it will help. But it does include some similarities between my situation. )

I have this game! If you purchased it back in the day, you can still redownload it from the App Store if your version of iOS is old enough. Here it is on my iPad 3 with iOS 9.

Bandai Namco's old iPhone/iPod Touch games were pretty good, especially Dig Dug Remix. Shame they had to stop selling them after Apple switched to in-app purchases.

The trailer is still on YouTube

I have a 30pin-to-HDMI adapter, but I don't have a HDMI capture device, so I can't make a video right now.

I mentioned this at first but edited it out, sorry for that.

Okay, I am dumb. Disregard what I (and @hwd45) said. The final update came out in 2016 (the app was officially taken down on 31 March 2017) which makes it just modern enough for iOS 13 to run it. Here it is on iOS 13 (this time in Dutch)

This surprises me because Pac-Man Remix, Dig Dug Remix, and Galaga Remix no longer work.

      For those who don't know of TruffleShuffle.co.uk, it's an online retailer that sells retro/pop-culture-themed goods. I'm just quickly posting this because I found this on their site the other day;

      It's always nice to see new official Tamagotchi items. This one is an official Tamagotchi heat-change mug, and it can be found here if any of you guys want one.

      First I made a dough out of flour, salt and water. I shaped it into a stand and put it into the oven. When it was done I made glue out of flour, water and salt. I mixed those things in a pot cooked it. I put glue all over the Tamagotchi stand!!!

      It looked icky.
      After it has dried I painted it.

      Then I took, what-it's-called?, white fluffy stuff, synthetic cotton?

      And I throw that fluff into the green paint water!!!

      Waiting for it to dry was boring so I used microwave.

      Then I had green, green, fluff of home.

      And YAY! It is finished!

      The R.I.P Tamagotchi Stand

      EDIT:
      I might cut down on the fluff....

      I'm beyond confused and sorry for the confused title I have no idea what to title this. Ok on to the question. You guys know how tamagotchi can like somewhat talk. How they'll call out your name when sad or hungry. I woke up this morning to my twins as adults calling me literally and I quote "Anon, we want to play"* (roughly what they said I should of taken a picture but I was panicked) I have never seen them say that before. Like they were near full happiness and fed so I was baffled. Even the attention icon was on. Again baffled. It went away after a few minutes.
      So to summarize, has anyone seen similar behavior in their tamagotchi, or other odd things like this?

      So, I have the set of Tamagotchis called "Tamagotchu", I believe, and I really don't understand how they work too well.  I know that they need to be connected every once in a while, but it seems that sometimes when I connect them they get mad at each other?  Does anyone know what this is and what's happening?

      hello. i’m new here so bare with me. but i’ve come here today to talk about Qpet. incase you don’t know what i’m talking about, it’s basically like a chinese knockoff of the real tamagotchi color. good now that’s out of the way. i’ve owned a lot of tamagotchis in my time my latest one being tamagotchi friends but that was quite awhile ago because i lost it LOL. so i saw a commercial about them and it was in that exact moment i remembered they still exist. i googled the new tamagotchi on to find they are almost $70! which isn’t that bad but in my current situation it kinda is. so i totally gave up being able to have one of those...at least for now. i end up on a website called Aliexpress and find something called a Qpet with color. (i got the one that has cherries on it)  looks cute, was way cheaper than the real thing and was pretty interesting. so i bought it not too long ago and it is yet to get here. so i have a few questions for anyone that also has one. just please don’t bash me for having “a fake tamagotchi” it’s only temporary until i can afford the real one 😅
       
      1. is it actually any good?
      2. is it possible to mod it like you would with the real ones?
      3. can you dress them up and change their rooms?
       
      alright have a good day ♥︎
