I have this on Android and can say (though its free) this is a great game to play and there is no iap that I've saw outside of a small banner at the bottom of the game that you can remove through paying for it...it hasn't bothered me in the least bit.

On top of whats stated above, you can equip your monsters with weapons/armors that will add skills. You have full control over your monsters attacks, skills, and defending, there is animations to all of them. Also, like all other Kairosoft games, you have the same RPG simulation elements where you can build on your own island and expand it by exploring. So far I can safely say it's one of my favorite Kairosoft games next to Dungeon Village and Grand Prix Story. I hope it comes to iOS soon.


Here's also a brief synopsis on overall gameplay:

Beastie Bay, after all, is a game where you amass a small army of critters and use them in turn-based RPG battles.

The idea is that you have washed up on a desolate island, and you've got to fight the native beasts to survive. Then, in your spare time, you'll build the island up into a personal paradise and even head off to explore new lands.

So you'll spend much of your time in your small homestead, building homes for human survivors and bedding for animal allies, research labs for discovering new technologies, and even hotels and airstrips.

Actually, that's not true. There is other IAP's in the game. You just don't get access to them until you unlock the Wairobot character in the game.
He opens a shop on your island where you can buy stuff with real money, like gold, medals etc..

Also paying to remove the ads also unlocks landscape mode for those that didn't know

Wow sorry, that was an excerpt from a review of the game. Guess they were wrong!

I've been playing this since yesterday on the Nexus 7, it's pretty awesome. I just wish Kairosoft would tidy up their controls.

This game is out on iOS now, came out yesterday in Japan. It is free with an IAP available to turn off the ads for 450yen.

It is actually seemingly fully translated already into English, as I loaded this onto my iPhone 5 from the Japanese app store and everything is in English, so if you have a Japanese account you can play this now.

Not sure if it will be or not. I was just saying the version released on the Japan app store appears to have both English and Japanese translations, I think based on what language your device is set to, because I loaded the Japanese version on my US iPhone and it just loaded up the game fully in English.

At least you could say the translation appears to be fully done on iPhone so it should be coming soon to the US I would think.

And the ads for everyone to see are a banner ad on the bottom of the screen, see below:

It's really good. A mix of all the kairosoft games with an added pokemon twist to the formula. Can't wait to dive deeper into this.
