Micro Pet - Part 3
The third icon is health, the options are: an injection, a bath and a poop scoop. Sometimes the dog needs an injection when you first start it.
The fourth icon is sleep. When this is selected, the dog sleeps until the turn of the next hour.
The fifth icon is training. Tricks are available to teach every three days. The first trick available is sitting. At first the dog refuses to sit a lot, so you have to shout at him. He eventually realises what he’s meant to be doing, and sits. You reward him with a bone.
Micro Pet - Part 2
The first icon is the status screen:
First screen = intelligence, happiness and health
Second screen = hunger, weight and tiredness
Third screen = age and weight
Fourth screen = score
Most stats are self-explanatory. Intelligence is increased by teaching your dog tricks, you can make your dog sleep through the day to fill the sleep meter, and points are scored when you win games, teach him tricks and toilet train him.
The second icon is food. There are three food options: meal (meat? can’t be chosen until your dog is older), snack (biscuits?) and water. Your dog will become ill if you don’t give him water every time he eats.
The last two photos show the dog’s behaviour after he has eaten. Rather than walk or run across the screen, he’ll sniff the ground, looking for somewhere to do his business, then pull this face - “Oh I REALLY have to go!”
Micro Pet by Cool Tec - part 1
I started up this little guy yesterday. I’ve had him since about 1999 so he’s one of my original pets from “back in the day”. A lot of his black paint has come off, as well as some red on his tongue, but I coloured it back in and he now looks as good as new!
You start at a pet shop (sorry that photo is so faded, the battery is running low so the pixels fade when it makes a sound - it was playing a tune at this point!). You can choose from four different dog personalities:
1) Grumpy male dog
2) Happy male dog
3) Sickly female dog
4) Happy female dog
Although the dogs look different during the selection process, once selected the dog which appears on screen always looks the same, which is slightly disappointing. You select the dog you want based on their personality, rather than appearance (teaching us a life lesson?).
Because I want an easy life I chose the happy male dog and named him Flint (I’d been handling a Neolithic flint axe head earlier in the day).
So this is Flint.
More to follow (contains yourselves, please).
Bandai Tamagotchi. Lit on top!
That’s an Aruderu no Kobin, by Bandai. I have one (minus the red and blue stickers) but it confuses the hell out of me.
I’m sorry Howard, but your incessant beeping, constant hunger and refusal to let me win the game meant I had no choice but to stuff you full of snacks to shut you up.
It was either you or me.
Ran-Chantchi’s Day Out
Yesterday (20th) Ran-Chantchi got all dressed up and headed to… a farm. Of course.
She hid her disgust very well when she found out about the farmer’s fertiliser - careful with that white dress!
The farmer gave her a present. What should he give to a beautiful lady, dressed in her finery and standing in crap - flowers? chocolates? jewellery? Nope, a solar panel.
Yeah, thanks a bunch.
Back home she tried out the gift and was delighted - not only does it work, but it’s a free listing weekend on eBay and they’re selling for a fortune!
