iPod Tamagotchi Game- Around The World

Recommended Posts

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 ( I haven’t already got it because it isint necessary for my phone and how I use it ) So, I do; and of course it’s outdated!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.

      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.
