Pixel Chix are interactive electronic games based on teenage girls. They are very similar to Tamagotchi in that they have an LCD screen and controlling buttons, although they are larger. They were first released in 2005. Based in a miniature house and more in the house there is a lounge, kitchen and dining area, with steps leading upstairs. There are three different types of houses. They are marketed by Mattel Inc.
In the game, two or more houses can be connected together, allowing the characters (the Pixel Chix) to visit one another. These characters can be controlled in ways similar to other handheld games, such as Tamagotchi. They can be told go out for a walk, watch television, eat a variety of foods, such as popcorn and hamburgers, and go to sleep. The more they are played with, the more options appear to the player; higher levels introduce different types of food, more outfits and more games to play. However; if they are neglected, they will decrease in skill level. Eventually, if neglected for too long, the game will end since the characters "leave", but can come back by resetting the game using a mini screwdriver into a reset hole. Nevertheless, in the 2 Storey house, no matter how long they are neglected, they still remain happy in your house with your level skills kept the same. The story is based and shown on the internet of women that live in a college of no men and fashionable poses, beginning with a house, then mate's connection and following with cars and babysitting.
