Zombigotchi is a pet simulator where you can play with, punish, and feed a little zombie pet. Collect Zombie emotion cards, unlock characters and minigames, and take care of your little zombie! Created by Finkbom, Zombigotchi is a universal app for $1.99.
First, a look back into history… Tamagotchi RULED THE WORLD for a couple years a decade ago. I still remember feeding those life sucking devices. My friends to this day still find random Tamagotchi devices in their houses. I had a T-Rex… I called it Chomp. Zombies RULE THE WORLD for the last couple of years. Marvel Zombies, Dawn of the Dead, Blackest Night, Dead Rising, even Call of Duty and Red Dead Redemption has Zombie modes. My friends to this day still find random Zombies roaming in their houses….. Ok I made that last part up, but you get the gist of it. So combining these MASSIVE hits could potentially be the most evil fusions in history.
Zombigotchi has you caring for a little zombie. The art is absolutely perfect for what this game is. The attitude, the range of emotions, the way the zombie reacts to different things you do, all of it plays amazingly well on developing the pet’s personality. It’s an adorable little plague spreader. The groans and grumbles that play are cute and well done. Yes, zombies don’t exactly emote through vocally like an actor or something, but it works really well and provides tons of charm.
There is a heck of a lot of room for improvements and development for Zombigotchi. At the moment, everything activates at random when you press an option like giving your zombie a treat or feeding him. Maybe tapping the button could open a menu and then you can choose what you want to do. This can allow the player to potentially set up special scene combinations, unlock multiple animations for the same action, or affect the zombie’s physical appearance by selecting what type of food to give it. I would love to be able to change the cage’s design and color, upgrading it by playing minigames for cash or something and having the zombie’s capabilities in those minigames change depending on what I feed it or how much I play with it.
There is tons of potential for Zombigotchi and I can feel the memories rush back from it. It’s just not quite up to date with current technology and customizability, so because of that, I can’t give this a perfect score. Graphically, I love this game. Interactively, it’s on it’s way.
