Help, help! The kingdom is being repressed! And what better way to overthrow the tyrannical King than by building a Pocket Creature army? Well, there might be better ways, but this is the way you're going to do it! Hire, raise, and evolve a team of monsters to fight your way up to the battle royale in this strategy game by NTFusion.
Start by purchasing a squad of adolescent Spirits, Puppets, Dragons, or the Undead in the shop, then switch to the team menu where you can swap up to 4 monsters into the team or feed your baby creatures to reach higher levels. After gaining a new level, you can evolve your creature into an even stronger, and often spookier-looking, form. With four creature types and seven evolutions per type, that's up to 28 possible monsters under your control! When you have a fighting group ready to go, simply click an available mission on the map to wage your first battle.
When it comes time brawl, it's up to little more than good strategy and a bit of luck to ensure a win. Because of the unique leveling tree, bigger monsters aren't necessarily better. Knowing your enemy is key, and arranging a team that can excel at certain battle types can make all the difference between victory or defeat. With a balance of status attributes and creatures that can heal, deal big damage numbers, take hits, support the team with unique abilities, or attack from a safe distance, you won't ever be at a loss of variety when it's time to plan your attack. Achieving a high grade after battles will earn you piles of gold to upgrade to an even stronger team, which will quickly become a necessity when that difficulty curve starts to rise.
The simple but appealing visuals add a touch of flair with haunting sceneries and character models that range from kooky to downright creepy. While there's a lot to enjoy here, there are also a few causes for frustration. Without any option to skip or speed up matches, it can sometimes be tedious waiting for a battle to finish. It's a shame that the monster abilities are all passive, and it's hard not to think of it as a lost opportunity to allow the player some involvement during combat. However, there is some benefit to taking time to observe battles, as it gives you a chance to compare how certain fighting styles perform against different enemies. Whether your army is built on cunning tactics or brute force, you'll soon find a favorite go-to team of creatures that's sure to leave the oppressive King shaking in his boots. So, come! Come and see the violence inherent in the system!
