I got this odd pet in a lot, and it initially didn't work, but after disassembling it, I found that one of the capacitors on the board had come loose and the metal part that connects the two LR44 batteries together was missing.
It comes in a dinkie dino shaped shell, and from the sprites, I think that this pet is a gyaoppi variant called the 'cute pet' listed on tamenargerie's odd pet page (links under the spoiler).
The hatching animation showed a volcano erupting, and then a screen with a pulsating egg. Strangely enough, my pet hatched sick, with a skull icon above it's head.
There are 10 icons, in order they are:
- Food (two options, a rice bowl? and seeds?)
- Exercise (I've also seen this exercise animation on the cyberpet)
- Medical cross (brings up an animation of an ambulance, increases health bar but decreases happiness, can be used even when pet it not sick)
- Book (decreases happiness)
- Attention icon (non-selectable)
The stats screen displays your pet's age, weight, hunger, EQ, happiness, health and IQ.
Selecting the Education and Door icons doesn't seem to do anything, maybe they only work when the pet calls for them. In the game, a heart flashes between two boxes and you have time your press to 'capture' the heart in a box. You can easily win by spamming the 1st button, as the heart will always spawn in the left box first. Winning increases both happiness and IQ.
Edit: I tried the door icon today, and a box/door appeared onscreen, which the character went into. Maybe it acts as a sort of daycare function, as I now cannot do anything to the pet with the exception of checking the status. Clicking on the door icon again does nothing.
Has anyone heard of this pet before? (Images under the spolier)
