More Creature Catching Games Should Be Like This
I bought this game b/c it sounded like a interesting mashup of Pokemon meets JRPGs. Surprisingly, this game entertained me more than the Pokemon games ever did.
You play as a kid named Culter who has lost his memory and has the ability to understand monsters. The only thing he remembers that he has a brother. With the help of a shepard girl named Aira, Culter must journey through the world & gain monster allies to help him find his brother.
Battle system is turn based with 4 party members; two of them are gonna be monsters while the other two will be Culter & Aira. Skill system is fun; you have different character classes you pick up from each town such as Warrior, Diviner, & Outlaw. You also have a subset of abilities called Carmina that can turn the tide in battle & be equipped & unequipped outside of battle to suit your needs.
Other features I enjoyed was how you didn’t have to heal outside of battle & how you can strengthen equipment you find with gold instead of buying new equipment often. I also liked how the game encouraged you to explore your surroundings to find new Carmina skills or stat boosters and how completing certain subquests have you gain a new monster ally. Touch controls are decent, though some taps move you farther than needed.
The monsters were quite interesting; my favorites were the Slyphs Windy & Flare and the Dragon lady Tina
One issue I had was not knowing how to activate a couple of subquests that involved talking to certain people. The majority of subquests pop up automatically as you journey, but some must be activated to be completed.
The only other issues was the high random encounter rate. High random encounters are good for gold & EXP, esp. if you get the golden pancho that lets you earn gold for the amount of damage you deliver to it. However, I found the random encounters annoying when trying to get through a long dungeon.
- The ability to befriend some monsters w/o fighting, fun classes, Interesting magical creatures, good storyline
- High random encounter rate
