Hatchi is a retro-looking app sure to get the nostalgia burning for all those who cared for a virtual pet back in
the 1990s when they were at the height of their popularity. Just as with the keychain-sized pets of the 90s, iPhone
users now will feed, clean, play with and generally look after their pets to ensure they grow up to be healthy, happy
The Hatchi monster will go through several stages of growth, and will develop differently depending on the quality of care the player provides. Successfully raised Hatchi monster will be smarter, happier, and require less attention.
"It's hilarious, but I really, really, really don't want Big Poppa Pump (his Hatchi monster) to bite the dust. I've somehow bonded with the thing, as silly as that sounds, and the competitive part of my brain wants to see an evolution based on my meticulous play."
