Fun phone game for monster collecting and arranging tiles. It's free, except for the stuff you optionally buy.
I keep finding myself in possession of so many + monsters that I don't know how to use them...
Hoping this thread can be brought to life, I'd love somewhere to discuss this game.
Then again, this is only the second post after like a year...
Next week in the UK, the 3DS version comes out, with a Super Mario version with it. Having never played it before, until the demo (I don't have an iphone and it was never released for android here) I'm really excited. I've a lot of experience with a variety of match 3 games of different types - Puzzle Quest, Bejeweled, many Candy Crush variants, Pokemon Trozei's series, etc - but the demo was pretty brutal and left me hungry to get into the game proper.
Definitely do it- it is well worth your time. I've yet to play the demo, but if it is like the game at all, I'll definitely be getting it.
If you play the 3DS game and are looking to get into the mobile version, there are ways to get the NA or JP version of the game for android(I think involving directly downloading the game files) if it hasn't been released in your region yet. No microtransactions will be possible, but that might not be a bad thing depending on the person. You can probably find guides for it online.
Personally, I don't think I'm going to get the 3DS game, despite having put lots of time and effort into the mobile one.
oh cool, what's your friend code? You should totally add me as a friend.

I'm rank 179.
Rad. Prepare for a friend request from a rank 204, lead ult ronia. I also use L. Meta, Umi&Yama, L. Kali, Athena, Pandora, and Luci on rare occasions.
Loving the game so far, really am. I have no issue with micro transactions and love dlc so a hack that doesn't allow me access to those is no good for me (I'm the same poster as Above, changed accounts). My phone contract is up though and I'm genuinely tempted to make my next phone an iPhone for this...
As I say, tempted. I could certainly see me being into the game enough. One app is a big thing to decide a phone I'm going to have for two years on though, so I'd need to find other ways to justify the decision. I was addicted enough to Candy Crush to reach about level 700, and I have every missable monster so far from Pokemon Shuffle, and completed Puzzle Quest at least half a dozen times, so I've got a bit of history with match-3 games.
It's been annoying not to have access to this until now, needless to say.
the iPhone is a decent enough phone, and you can jailbreak it if you want a bit more freedom with it. but you can get the game on ipod 4g (that's the device I use it on) and the majority of android devices too... in the US at least
regardless, the game is fantastic and very, very in-depth. So it's a worthwhile download.
For reasons unknown, it's never come out on android in the EU. Very frustrating.
I'm quite sure that it is. However, this also means that EU gets version updates MUCH faster than US does.
But that doesn't really help if you don't have an iPhone.
You could always try and download the US files from a site directly to your phone. But i don't have much experience in that.
Yessss new ultimate evos released! I have everything i need for L.Kali too.
I'm heading out just now but when I get back, I'll give some thoughts on the game ahead of the US release. It will provide some perspective from a non-phone player anyway.
I would be pumped about the new ultimate evos today if I actually had any of the monsters that were updated. I'll just keep waiting for Awoken Bastet.
Loving the game so far, looking forward to seeing what it continues to bring!
One thing I did notice about the 3DS game, which would apply to people who have played the mobile game/are going to play it in the future: Some monsters have had their evos changed. For example, the black knight evolves into the mystic dark knight in Z, but are two separate monsters in the mobile game.
Other way around. The soldiers always start off as Mystic (Element) Soldier. Then evolve into one of two choices (typically (Elemental Concept) Knight etc), then into more fearsome and unique sounding name.
The 3DS game sounds rather interesting. I'll def be picking it up then. Eventually.
I'm on board, since it comes out at midnight tomorrow...and I've got the day off, so it'll be a perfect time for me to dig in and get started!
Oh, a rather important change to how skills work. In PADZ, skills are charged up with a meter that is charged by making matches and taking hits (some monsters have abilities that auto-charge this, some enemies can reduce it). This means you can have to pick and choose which skills you use more carefully, but it does mean you can also use the same one repeatedly in the same turn if you have the SP for it.
Mario doesn't work that way, skills are on turn-timers.
That's certainly a more dynamic game style than normal P&D. That'll be a fun change.

One thing that I like about this game that isn't in regular P&D: your monsters gain experience after each battle. It beats having to rely on monster fusion all the time.
