Last but not least, here is our favorite throwback video game for the Apple Watch. The Tamagotchi game that was so popular in the '90s returns in all-new format but it still possesses the same old look. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Tamagotchi and the latest and greatest Hatchi video game for the Apple Watch, the objective of the game is to care for a digital pet that resides within your device.
