Please make a full game for Apple Watch

I recently reinstalled this game and was surprised to find that I can preview the pet on my Apple Watch albeit very briefly. Please make an app that will allow to play this game through the watch as it is a perfect medium and a throwback to tamagotchi! Thanks!

Brilliant app!

I’m blind, and I never had a tamagotchi when i was a child because they weren't accessible for blind people. Therefore i could never understand why people were obsessed with their virtual pets. That is until i downloaded hatchi. Now I completely understand why people were so addicted to virtual pets in the 90s. Thank you for creating a virtual pet that's accessible with VoiceOver as well.
To those reviewers that complain that Hatchi is too old fashioned, its meant to be retro like the tamagotchi. It clearly says that its a retro virtual pet in the app description.

Please fix the Facebook link for free coins

The Facebook link is broken I want to log in Facebook through the app. But it says the app is in developer mode and I Need to contact the developers for permission. When I log in it says the app won’t connect to Facebook something is wrong the app, not Facebook the link needs updating.
