Are you looking for a casual Pokemon type game but addicted to Candy Crush? Well, Beasties could be for you. 

In the world of Beasties, humans and Beasties are best friends and live in perfect harmony. That is, until one day a Beastiemaster goes missing. You are sent to investigate this disappearance. If you are successful the Guild of Beastiemasters will promote you to Beastiemaster. 

That’s basically as good as the story gets. Nothing happens, and the ending is well, meh. 

Beasties game

I Don’t Know

Beasties take the Pokemon formula of catching animals and making them fight. With its own twist on the battle system. It is a match three puzzle game, with different colours and a weird eye symbol. The coloured tiles allow the Beasties to perform their special moves if enough of the tiles are broken. And the eye allows for an attack. 

Battles are very simple as there are no special items that pop up on the grid, just extra moves if enough tiles are broken. As much as I wanted to like it, I got bored very quickly, more so when you get the super OP Beastie. 

It’s All Weird

The game is also a weird thing. Your character is just a portrait on a stand and hops about like a board game character. It looks and feels weird. The world itself is bright and stunning with some lovely looking animals, but it’s a tiny map that can be crossed in a matter of minutes. 

Overall, Beasties feel more like a tester for something else. Nothing really happens battles are ok, and it takes almost no time to finish the ‘story’ 

All honesty if you don’t play Beasties, then you will not be missing out on anything.

4-10
