• Every monster is unique
• Battle your friends Monsters in Multiplayer
• Quest to find more powerful Monsters and find out why you are in this strange world

Every Monster is capturable in a unique way. Some monsters you may have to use an item, others you'll have to use a specific move. Becoming a Monster Guru will require you to learn what each Monster desires.

Amazing, Enjoyable RPG Game!

This app is truly amazing, though the art is a bit sketchy, the game is still fun! I do have an IPad 3rd Generation and the game does work. At first the map wasn't loading when I opened the app, but when I opened it on the third try ,I believe, it worked fine. When traveling you have to have some sort of patience though, it can take a bit for Sen to walk. Otherwise, I live the Pokemon feel to it, not to mention the unique designs of each monster and character.

Fantastic, make more

This game was incredibly entertaining and interesting. It has a deep and spooky feel to it, however it was not scary. The game kept me intrigued and excited to start the next quest. My only dislike is the length of the game. It's incredibly short; only took me 5 hours to complete in full. I would love a sequel to this fantastic game. Overall, it is beautiful, intriguing, but short.

Wonderful Game!

This game has one of a kind artwork and very cool concepts. I'm proud to be a Kickstarter backer.

One bug I'm encountering is that the life of monsters revived during battle is shown as 0 if you try switching back to them... 1 point of damage and it dies again :(

Otherwise, great game.
