Some reviews are extremely difficult to accomplish without making direct references to other games. Monster Legends is just one of those, because the free-to-play Facebook game owes over a little debt of gratitude to your certain Nintendo-backed IP that begins with a ‘P.’ The main difference is you’ll be breeding your own personal monsters instead of catching them, even though it’s not the level of game that’s going to have mass appeal, it’s enjoyable enough for what exactly it is.
Back story? Game Cheat Android doesn’t require a back story, thanks greatly. All you should know is it takes monsters to address monsters, and also since building your personal a la Pacific Rim isn’t an alternative, you’re likely to should hatch some instead. Fortunately, you’re given an egg to get you going and a few premium currency to speed throughout the steps of hatching and feeding it.
Congrats, you’re the proud mom or dad of your own personal monster! Of course it deserves a habitat to live in, food to assist it grow – which is often grown on farms, by having an investment of some elementary currency (gold) and time – and some… um, companionship. The motto here may be “Gotta breed ’em all” as opposed to “Gotta catch ’em all” except that may appear a little too risqué.
Bad jokes aside, all basic monsters come with an elemental type (plus thunder, which isn’t an element, but hey) that defines their special abilities and determines what sort of habitat where they are able to live. By breeding two types of monsters, say, a fire plus an earth, the resulting egg will develop a monster containing abilities from both elements and can are now living in either one of many habitats. Breeding is easy: just drag the two monsters onto the breeding ground structure and enable the magic happen. The game doesn’t even manage to care what gender the parents are. As Dr. Ian Malcolm might say, life finds an easy method.
Other tasks about the home front include clearing rocks, trees, and meteorites to make room for more structures. Unfortunately, you are able to simply have one worker doing a task at one time until you spring for a few premium currency. Habitats and farms can also be upgraded, though doing so quickly gets expensive regarding gold and time. It almost seems like the video game is daring you to spend some actual money.
Once you’ve got several monsters readily available, the next phase is to load them to your airship and send those to a chain of islands where they will likely do battle with all the bad monsters. Combat is dependent on picking which attacks or abilities to utilize, with a meter at that time showing an order wherein the monsters are due to act. Every ability has its own animation, though with the exception of the specials that you can just use sparingly, these are usually pretty basic. Every fifth battle or so is against an especially tough boss.
What strategy there is certainly involves the rock-paper-scissors dynamic in between the elements. That’s the location where the dual-element monsters come in useful, as if your enemies are nonster to fire, maybe an earth attack works instead. Abilities also cost stamina, though consumables can deal with healing or energy replenishment within a pinch.
Victories earn experience points for both you and your monster, along with potential gold or resources based on a random spin. Both XP and food aid in leveling up monsters, which can be helpful, and they learn new abilities since they advance. They also physically grow and transform at regular intervals, offering them a bit of extra personality past the fairly generic, not quite as cute as that ‘P’ brand art. It’s also nice that they have names – among my starting monsters was dubbed JJ.
There’s more, such as the usual social features along with the solution to challenge other players after you reach level 10, but it’s nothing you haven’t seen before on Facebook. Monster Legends is a kind of by-the-numbers type of entertainment that actually works in the event you dig the theme and in all probability gives you no real joy when you don’t. So when it turns out, it truly was possible to share it entirely naturally merits.
