I never really got to play any of these... Which one stands out from the rest of the clones?

Was wondering this too. Actually like the concept of Puzzles & Dragons but hate the whole online requirement thing. With mention of problems connecting, I'm assuming the same thing is required here.

Any of these not require online and constant nagging to add friends, etc.?

Same. I did try Puzzle & Dragons before, but was put off immediately by the online-only thing, so i was never really able to play it.

Then someone needs to make one dammit!

Seriously, though, I know there's games in similar vein like Puzzle Quest and the Dungeon Raid-ish games. But I actually do like the gameplay of Puzzle & Dragons (and presumable this clone). I would rather pay for a game that didn't require online play.

I was even in my house and at one point my connection wasn't "strong enough" to save my game so I had to go to another part of my house. The concept of using friends' monsters is cool, but think these games could be just as fun without them.
