Amidst all the Pokemon buzz, be sure you give this game a try. It's a lot of fun collecting and merging all the critters, and despite being freemium is really fair regarding its distribution of currency that I never felt forced to have to buy more (but there is an option to remove ads I'd recommend buying to support the developers, even though the ads aren't intrusive).

I'll get a review up sometime later today hopefully, but this may be my game of the week so download it!

I think that this game has its own players. I was smilling a lot once I see my first breed is a optopus with a weird name. Great game!

Great to see a Pokmon-like game where all the features actually work flawlessly . What I really like are the critter design. It's important that they feel unique and have their own charm and they do. Battles are super fast and streamlined, just like the entire game. It's a bit grindy though and I've come to the point were pretty much all of my critters have no health anymore. When you go to a lower tier planet you'll build a nice squad in no time. Also I've felt like it's smarter to use your coins to evolve your low health critters than to heal them.

Beside my upcoming game today, this one is definitely my favorite, I addict to anything that bring back me the world map adventure feeling of the Final Fantasy 7-8 so far, and beside, Pokemon is yet playable in my region as well.

Only one feedback about this game during special combo with extra control mechanic, I need to play with my both hands, when I refer a one hand control more.

PS: Music of this game is so cool!!!

It's a question we asked ourselves. Does the Pokemon Go hype have an (negative or positive) effect on Pokemon-like games?

Also while I will inevitably end up drawing comparisons between them, and it may even end up being a positive in terms of the game's sales, this is by no means a Pokemon clone. If you're not a fan of the series, don't let that put you off this. Conversely, if you're a big fan like me, don't go in expecting Pokemon Z because this isn't it. It plays to its own strengths and the strengths of a mobile device brilliantly in my opinion.
