IOS Spotlight #17: Monster Adventures

Title: Monster Adventures
Developer: Foursaken Media
Platforms: IOS Universal
Price: $1.99
For IOS gamers, Foursaken needs no introduction. The team of four brothers are known for quality games that mix elements from a number of genres into something fun and unique. Now they're at it again with the just-released Monster Adventures.
Monster Adventures could best be described as a roguelike RPG with loot, Pokemon-esque monster capturing, and arena battles. Through unexpected circumstances you find that you are a Kindred, able to bind with and command the various Monsters that roam the world. You send your Monster out into the random generated world to gather loot and new monsters and gain experience, all in the pursuit of raising up the ranks in the local arena. Capturing and defeating monsters allow you to change body parts and abilities of your own, from imbuing your monster with elemental skills to different melee and ranged attacks. But die out in the wilderness and you lose all that you've gathered on that run as well as half of the gained experience.
All these systems work together to provide the player with tons of customization and choice of how to develop their Monsters, from a ranged tank to a quick melee type and more. The focus of the game is actually the arena fights, as all the rogue-"lite" roaming is to build you up for these special fights. According to Foursaken, following the story that emerges across these trials will take from 12 to 20 hours and this doesn't count the co-op and PvP multiplayer options. Monster Adventure's colorful cute art style is  wonderful and polished as the gameplay and nice
Foursaken has once again successfully combined a diverse range of genre elements into a fun game packed with content. You can purchase Monster Adventures for $1.99.
