Virtual Alienz is a Tamagotchi-like program. You have to feed your Alienz when he is hungry, give him something to drink when he’s thirsty, give him an injection when he’s ill, and you can play games with him. It has two different games. One is baseball and the other one is Mastermind. There is also a stat sheet that lets you know how old he is and how much he weighs. You can also give him a name.

He is a cute if annoying little guy. He needs almost constant attention. You can minimize him and set him to either pop up on the screen, or to say “Uh oh” when he needs attention. As he gets older his food and drink change. The baseball game is easy to learn but hard to do. He pitches a ball and you have to click the mouse on it to hit it back. The Mastermind game does not become active until he is five days old. Both of these games will make him very happy. From the menu, you can also speed him up, slow him down, or reset him. Oh, and if you just can’t stand him, don’t give him attention for about 5 or 10 minutes and he will die.
