In the mean time while looking through the devs journals there is another game called GeoMonsters which is free. Its not a top down rpg though. Apparently you can trade these guys over wifi to anyone in Geo society.
BOUGHT!!

Default Game Impressions

The scrolling is jerky, the on-screen buttons are unresponsive, and whoever wrote the text does not know the difference between "your" and "you're." Nor between "affect" and "effect."

Still interested?

Ok, well, the game indeed appears to play a lot like Pokemon. I can't say much about how much depth or variety there is after a half hour or so of play, but it hints at a decent amount.

The combat system is interesting, though again it's hard to judge it in terms of depth given how much I've played so far. In fact, I couldn't figure out how to change from one monster to another once I had two in my party. Basically though, it appears to be a mix of turn based and real time, but the latter only in the sense that there is a progress bar that needs to fill up after a monster attacks, the speed of which varies depending (I think) on level. At least in part. This means one monster can attack another multiple times in the space of one round. There's also an upgradable "speed" stat which I would hope contributes to this aspect. Visually combat plays out much the same as it does in Pokemon, though there are no visual attacks or animations.

If you really, REALLY want a Pokemon-like game on the iOS and think you'd be willing to forgive a fair number of issues for it, this may be worth your while. The bare bones at least are certainly here, and appear to be fairly solid. It's definitely not an unscrupulous cash-in and certainly not unplayable by any means. My guess is what you'll get out of it will depend on the level of expectations you approach it with, combined with how much of a fan you are of its "inspiration."

Okay after playing nonstop for at least an hour I can succesfully say that this is a decent game. First the character movement is really slow and the controls are decent if you slide your finger over them. There are tons of creatures to collect and the battle is fun. In fact the best part of the game is the combat and catching creatures. This is not a open world game. You go to the HQ and get a mission on which you catch and defeat these creatures. I have not bred a pokemon yet but I imagine that in the future I can. The creatures are interesting and look very well made. Theres seems to be alot of content with over 300 geomon and you are encouraged to catch them all. If you are a fan of pokemon you will probably like this.

Well your against some sort of rival team thats trying to make a army of the geomon and there are various missions and the like. There are random encounters and geomon trainers in those missions where you fight them. No its not like the monster hunter quest system.
