What Is It?
This is a brilliantly drawn monster app whereby you play as a monster master in the beautiful world of ‘Alsperia’. One day mysterious buildings began rising from the ground in Alsperia and peace was never to be again. Out of these buildings monsters poured, the native peaceful people studied methods that could use the Monsters to their needs and they succeed. Those people that gained the power to use the Monsters were called ‘Summoners’ and were highly respected.
Is It Easy To Use?
Yes, once you learn your way around the game it is simple enough. You have to become a Summoner and challenge the mysteries of the Towers by gathering the power of the Monsters. This is a strategy game and you need a fine balance of energy and coins vs the levels of the various monster towers you wish to conquer.
You’re helped in your quest by a rather busty looking side kick, it gives the impression that this game is perhaps targeted more at the teenage boy market but saying that it does have a 17+ rating, so is not for the younger teens.
As you progress through this game the more fun it becomes, it’s not really a game to pick up and only play for a short time, it’s one that you will want to be more involved with.
Is It Fun?
Yes it is, it’s great fun and there’s a lot to learn. It’s a game that you can become fully immersed in and enjoy.
Is It Pretty?
Very much so, the artwork is brilliant, perhaps it’s a little risque and if it was toned down a bit it should then receive a lower rating making it more accessible for younger children too. I think many would really enjoy this game.
Should You Download It?
Of course, without question, it is currently free in the app store, and even at its ‘normal’ price of $0.99/£0.69 it still represents humongous value for money. There are in-app purchases if you want to go down that route, but it is not crucial to do so. We would recommend you play around with the free app first and see if you really want to purchase additional packs.
