My second son desperately wanted one, but didn't want to wait until his birthday. He asked for one, and we told him to wait until his birthday, he didn't want to miss out on the fun so he made his own.
He decided it needed a name, so he called it a "VX-1".

I am not sure what the rules are, but he got high scores often.
I gave it a go, apparently I wasn't as good and I lost a life somehow? I was told that my scores were pretty low. It was really quite amusing playing with the VX-1 and being told I lost a life.
Apparently if you get over a certain score, or something, you get an upgrade. To be honest, I was never sure if an upgrade was a good thing or a bad thing. It didn't really matter, my scores were never high enough to earn an upgrade.
An upgrade meant there were two toys to shake around in the box. Again, I was never quite sure what the rules were.

I am not sure if he had more fun with the tamagotchi, or his VX-1. He certainly got more use out of the VX-1 and spent longer playing with it.
Sometimes my kids make me laugh.
