Those of you who have met me will realize I’m a geek. A huge geek. Some may even go as far as to say I’m a bionic geek, built from parts of lesser geeks. And with that, growing up, I was a major Pokémon addict. So coming across Haypi Monster while looking for the last app reviewed. I stashed it away to play next. And let me tell you, I was surprised at how…. this game is.
Haypi Monster does play quite a bit differently than Pokémon. You start off choosing the gender of your “trainer”, which in this game is represented by leprechauns with comically-sized noses, which is on par. The basics of moving around, battling creatures, leveling up and evolving my creatures is there, movement is quite different, however instead of moving around in an open world with cities connected with routes, the games world is separated into different chunks, based on element and level.
