Monster Rally (Soft launch in NZ/Aus/Canada, soon worldwide)



Hello everyone!

We’ve been working on a new running game that’s coming soon for iOS and Android called Monster Rally. We’re using a different camera angle, like those Crash Bandicoot levels where you’re running toward the player and camera. There’s also a big focus on combat, swiping and bopping other monsters while collecting coins and dodging obstacles. The early part game is pretty basic to get your feet wet, but it can be quite a challenge as it speeds up in later levels.

Monster Rally is in a soft launch period now, so you can give it a try if you’re on iOS in Canada, New Zealand or Australia.

I hope you can play it and let us know what you think in the thread. Here's the iTunes link: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/monster-rally/id1099920661?mt=8

Quick Update!

Just wanted to let everyone know we also added Ireland to the soft launch territories.

Has anyone got a chance to try the game out yet? We're looking for any feedback you may have as we continue to make updates.

Looks kinda cool. What does "Rally" mean for gameplay? Is this a racing game of some sort? Screen shots don't make it look like a racing game.

Good observation! So have a lot of people, so we're actually testing a new name "Monsters on the Run" to see if that will reduce confusion. We've obviously got monsters... but i think when people searched, they'd find us with car/truck racing stuff using "rally".

Yup! We've indeed taken inspiration from those Crash Bandicoot levels where you're running toward the camera, and we've also layered in a whole combat system where you're swiping to knock the monsters off the track as you go. I'm working on a few new gameplay videos now, which I think will show that a little clearer.

There are also levels where you run more traditionally away from your camera in the bonus levels for little more variety.

We're currently f2p. It's fairly gentle in that you can wait out the energy and level-up timers and unlock stuff over time, or if want everything at once you can buy gems and coins for that.

Sounds like your standard f2p model Which I really can't get into but I will give It a shot Maybe try adding a IAP for premium unlock
