Are you ready to raise some virtual pixel dogs on Nintendo Switch thanks to RedDeerGames? Then check our Dogotchi: Virtual Pet review!
If you’re a dog person, then you probably would enjoy taking care of and raising some virtual pixel dogs on Nintendo Switch, right? Well, thanks to RedDeerGames, who previously gave us Catgotchi: Virtual Pet, it’s now time to take on a new version that will allow you to take care of a canine pet at home or on the go. As the name suggests, this is a take on the old-school keychain-style Tamagotchi toys from back in the day that are still very much present in this day and age.
On your journey as a responsible pet owner, you’ll get a chance to care for several pixel dogs in a game with a minimalist presentation in which every chunky pixel is put to good use. What will you do with your new dogs? Once you get started, you’ll have to feed each dog as well as make sure to take care of the byproduct of their digestive process. You will also need to keep them clean, and sometimes they’ll even get sick, and that’s when you have to give them their meds to help them get better.
If you check at the top of the screen, you’ll notice four different gauges that will increase and decrease as time passes. They will also change depending on your actions. These gauges are for hunger, energy, hygiene, and fun. If one of your dogs is hungry, you can take care of it by feeding it. If the fun gauge is getting a bit low, then you can fix that by playing with your pet for a bit. You get the picture.
If you want to have a new pixel virtual pet of the canine variety to care for on your Nintendo Switch, then Dogotchi: Virtual Pet is exactly what you need. You’ll be able to play with it, clean it, feed it, and see how it grows on your TV or on the console’s screen. Oh, and don’t forget to give your dog the meds it needs to make it feel better when it’s sick! Dogotchi: Virtual Pet is out on Nintendo Switch with a $12.99 price tag. You can also get the free Colorful Set DLC which will allow you to change from the Game Boy feeling colors to a wide variety of 50 colors.
