This fun app lets users grow an emoji from birth to full emoji adulthood.
The Tamagotchi-like app, simply named 'Raise Emoji,' gives users their own emoji to care for, feed and play with, like a virtual pet. The emoji needs love and attention to grow and flourish. Underfeed or neglect it, and the emoji will grow angry rather than developing properly. To keep their emoji happy and growing, users can choose from a range of actions including feeding the emoji an apple or burger, reading it a book and playing with it. A blue bar indicates whether the emoji is well-fed or hungry, while a red one displays its level of anger.
Tamagotchi virtual pets were wildly popular in the 90s. With the range of virtual pets available on the Internet and in apps, there's no overarching digital pet-growing game that truly dominates today's game market. By using already familiar and beloved emoji, this fun app positions itself to become a universal favorite.
