Just a couple of weeks ago, Hatchi got updated with, most notably, two new mini-games: the dodging game Raining Meds and the memory game Hatchi Matchi.
This time, Hatchi has been updated with a new mini-game menu. But don’t let the “mini” fool you. This new mini-game menu is actually quite big for the reason that it’s added specially for multiplayer games.
Hatchi developer Portable Pixels promises additional multiplayer games in future updates. But the initial multiplayer game offering is already available in the form of Hatchi Battling.
Hatchi Battling lets you compete with your Game Center friends for retro virtual pet supremacy.
In Hatchi Battling, you must complete a series of actions in order to create a fireball that will be sent toward your opponent. Of course, your opponent must also do the same to create a counter-fireball. Whoever comes up with the bigger fireball wins the game.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Hatchi is available in the App Store for $0.99.
Also included in the newly updated app are stickers for background customization and achievements related to Hatchi Battling.
