Relive The 90′s With This Medabots Medawatch App

By Eugene . October 1, 2013 . 3:32pm

screen568x568Remember Tamagotchi? No? What about Digimon? These guys had their star moments with the craze over keeping a virtual pet alive, and so did Medabots. The original Medawatch had an extra twist by being an actual watch/toy that tied into the series—Medabots took orders from their fighters through the watches.

 

Now, for 8-bit nostalgia’s sake, we get the watch-game remade for the iOS and Android. Players who pick up Medawatch can care for their pet robots, which will slowly accumulate their own experience points.

 

If you feel like speeding it up, players can shake their smartphones to speed up the process. To keep the Medabots from falling into disrepair, players also have to regularly do some mini-game maintenance such as catching a falling ball or supplying the bot with engine oil and energy. All the various Medabots from the watch series are available in the game, and you’ll have to complete missions to obtain more of them.

 

The iOS version is out now, with the Android version available on the 30th of September.

    Man I really liked the show as a kid. I wonder why this didn’t catch on.
    It seems that of all those anime aimed at kids to collect stuff around that time, like Digimon, Beyblade, Medabots etc didn’t hold up like Pokemon did.

      I bought the first Digivice and the second gen one. It was fun shaking that things vigorously.

      The Medabots and Digimon anime are much better than Pokemon’s. If you’re referring to success, the 2010 Beyblade relaunch has proven to be quite successful.

      because ppl had been clinging into pokemon too much since first release so another series like what you said above didn’t have much chances to do it..

    They accumulated EXP for every step you took. Most of the time I would just shake it to trick it into thinking I was walking, but sometimes I used to run around the house in circles trying to train mine.

    I wonder if the pet robot can poop…
    well, but…. lol
