Caravan Beast

Goody Gameworks' Caravan Beast is basically a very Pokemon-esque RPG with a very literal carrot and stick, as you play a young boy named Arche who has big dreams of becoming a Beast Tamer. Beast Tamers, trained at the Academy, can hatch Beasts from eggs and train them as they travel around the world, visiting powerful Masters and defeating them to gain their trust and prove their own worth. No tiny metal balls for your beastly companions, however... as the name implies, your beasts follow along behind you as you walk, with a little encouragement from a dangling piece of bait. The game's in-depth tutorial will walk you through the basics, but they're pretty, well... basic. You'll click on locations on the map to travel there, and automatically begin the journey, which can take several days. As Arche and his Beasts walk along automatically, you click repeatedly on trees, rocks, and more to make them drop loot, and at the end of each day, your caravan will rest, letting you feed your Beasts and prepare for the next day. You may encounter wild Beasts, and your own will fight automatically, being helped or hindered by various types of terrain. (Be aware that if you choose to forfeit instead of fight, your current journey will end and you'll have to start from the beginning of your route!) Win, and your Beasts will not only gain experience to level up, but you may also find an egg to hatch a new one. It's a simple format that may be a little too automatic and clicky for some players, but the vibrant visuals, cheery mood, and piles of Beasts to raise and train will be just the hook for some to strap on their walking shoes and travel across the land, searching far and wide...

I have multiple beasts...how do I switch between viewing them/using them in battle/etc? I can't seem to figure it out.

once you arrive to a city you can change your beasts selections. After that you stick with this selection until next city.
How to change the selection is easy, just click the button in the center bottom to view many possible actions like buying and selling items, buying better caravans, challenging masters, ....

PS: the max number of beasts in a battle is the max number allowed by the used caravan.

I can't defeat the person in the beach.
I have 3 guardians and he has 3 mystics.
I thought that mystics are weaker than guardians but no way to defeat him.
help please.

To switch beasts: while in a town, visit "Beast Care". On the left bottom will be pictures of the beasts currently in your caravan. Each picture has a little red X in the upper right corner. Click the X to dismiss the beast. On the right, you can scroll through the available beasts and press the green "Select" button to add them.

For the beach guy: have you mutated your beasts yet? Read the 'Tips' in the Guidebook about mutating.

thank you for the reply ginny
I will check the guidebook for the mutation

It started out OK. But I needed to do a lot of grinding for the first big battle, and then, I evidently need to grind more to get to the next area. Or maybe I'm just bad at this game.

Oh man this thing rips off Pokemon sooooo much.

Repetitive type games usually don't hold my attention, neither do I like sitting through dialogue balloons. But I have to say this game compelled me to play to the end; it was very engaging and the mutations of the creatures excited me.

Very well done.

Looks like the number of items you can have in your inventory is actually one less than what you would think. For example, when your capacity is 40 items, you can't travel if you have 40 items unless you discard one first.

A very well-made, entertaining Pokemon-Oregon Trail hybrid.
However it became VERY tedious about 60% of the way through. By 75% I found myself almost unable to finish from repetition and lack of challenge.

Once you have 10,000s of gold it is just a matter of training ones beasts to the maximum. It's just a click through after that. But not so fast... there are some "quests" which take you over 30 "days" just to complete one leg. I lost interest far before this point however.

The game wins for its nice graphics and beasts, and (up to a point) it is fun to complete and try to get all the upgrades and mutations. (Though I also got frustrated with mutations...after attempting about 10 turtles, snakes and birds I have still only gotten one branch of the family tree.)

That said, for a free game, it is of amazing quality.

I forgot to mention also one "bug" which was a battle I believe to be unwinnable.

Fighting a "sproing" girl near the Hidden Lagoon, she had a Vinedos beast with 14,000 HP. He had some kind of regeneration ability which kicked in after I would get him down to about 11,000 HP.

He also seemed to be able to regenerate another beast (~4000HP Jolkeaf) which I would kill over and over, only to see him regenerate every 6 seconds or so. I was playing with a Lv. 50 beast at 4200 HP.

No matter how often I hit her beasts, or how I used my Arcanes, I could not get the Vinedos below 11,000. Eventually I had to reload the game and start from the last saved day. As far as I know, such an enemy is unwinnable.
