Monster collector games have always been thing for me. Pokemon, Digimon, Dragon Warrior Monsters, Monster Rancher, Monster Seed, Jade Cocoon…Wow, it’s not until you start listing them that you realize how serious the problem is!
I just downloaded DragonsIsland on my iPhone and have been unable to put it down. The combat is so so but there are plenty of monster to collect, a wide variety of themes, and you can even combine two to make a new monster. The art is something that I really like and it appeals to me more than a lot of the other monster collectors out there.
It also drops the whole pretense of this being an “all in good fun” type arrangement. You can feed monsters to others, reduce their souls to gems to power others, a lot of stuff like that.
There’s also a story about…something, but that’s not really what’s keeping my interest. Funny considering the title and purpose of this blog…
