What is Tamagotchi Planet?
Tamagotchi is a small pet from cyberspace that is presented to the player in the form of an egg. The pet is then hatched out and after that the player is needed to take care of it for some time. The characteristics of the grown up Tamagotchi depend on the manner in which the creature is taken care of by the player. If the player takes good care of the pet, it will slowly grow bigger, healthier and more beautiful every day. However if the player neglects the creature it will grow into a mean and ugly being.
How is the game played?
To start with a Tamagotchi egg will appear when the first tab is pulled. At this point the clock has to be set, and after five minutes the egg will hatch. For the first hour the creature will demand almost complete attention, and the needs of the pet will be displayed on the health meter. The pet will be highly demanding in this phase where it is called as Babitchi or Shirobabitchi. The player has to feed it till it is full, play a game with it till it is happy and clean its mess when it goes poop. After 20 to 30 minutes the creature will take a nap for 5 minutes. After waking up it will continue to make demands for another 30 minutes, after which it will enter the child form or the Marutchi or Tonmarutchi, depending on the generation hatched. In this form it wonâ€™t be as demanding as it was, but this phase will shape its character and this has to be shaped by the player. After 6 to 8 days the pet will assume an adult character. As the creature reaches ages above 16 it will start acting in a strange manner and will require more care.
Finally the pet will depart for its planet and the duration for which it stays with the player will depend on how well it is taken care of by the player. 11 to 16 years is considered to be a good job while 17 to 22 is regarded as excellent. Anything above 23 id amazing and requires near perfect care. There is also a â€œSecret Characterâ€, and the pet will change into this only if the player takes perfect care of the pet. To pause, the player can go in the clock mode by pressing the middle button and then pressing both the far right and the far left buttons simultaneously. This also enables the player to set the clock. This feature helps the player to take a break when he or she is tired of taking continuous care of the pet.
