The best games about virtual pets for iOS and Android

The first virtual pets appeared back in 1996 – then it was electronic toys called Tamagotchi. The classic tamagotchi looked like a plastic egg with a liquid crystal screen and a few buttons. Watching the life of a pet on a small screen turned out to be an incredibly exciting process, given that this creature had to be taken care of – fed, bathed, taken for walks and even treated.

The idea of virtual pets has safely moved to modern smartphones and tablets in the form of many games dedicated to the care of animals and various fictional, but cute creatures. Thanks to touchscreens, caring for them has become even more interesting, and the capabilities of current gadgets allow you to play games with your pets, shoot videos about them, buy them food and clothes, hear their voice, put them to bed and decorate their homes.
