Collect Cute Combat Monsters in “Magimon Adventures”, Now Available on the App Store
Action-packed strategy game combines gem shooting, card collecting and role-playing
Hong Kong – October 29, 2014 – Animoca Brands, the developer and publisher of mobile games based on globally loved brands such as Garfield, Ben10, Doraemon, Ultraman, Astro Boy and more, today announced the launch of Magimon Adventures, an action-packed strategy game that fuses elements of gem shooting, card collecting and role-playing games (RPGs) to create a one-of-a-kind mobile gaming experience. Magimon Adventures is now available free-to-play worldwide for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
Magimon Adventures invites players into the vivid, stylized world of some of the cutest and most fantastical monsters ever seen. Players must solve challenging gem shooting puzzles in order to attack and defeat enemy creatures before they have a chance to inflict damage. Each win gives players the chance to collect one of the more than 150 monsters, who can then be tamed and trained to help fight against other creatures that appear throughout the adventure. Chances of victory can be increased by fusing monsters together, evolving monsters to bring out their full potential, and making sure to attack enemies with the right elements and skills.
“Magimon Adventures is one of our most fun and whimsical games yet,” said Robby Yung, CEO of Animoca Brands. “The Magimon monsters can be cute, fierce, charming, unruly, lovable and destructive all at the same time, and the world they inhabit is full of fantasy and adventure.”
Key gameplay elements in Magimon Adventures include:
Gem Shooting: Solve gem puzzles by linking at least 3 same-colored gems to make a chain and release elemental energy to deal damage to your enemy; crushing several gems in a single combo will drive your team into a frenzy and attack all enemies.
Card Collecting: Collect over 150 monster cards, while upgrading and evolving monsters to activate new skills and make them more effective in battle.
Monster Battles: Enlist your monsters to fight your battles by linking elemental gems such as fire, water, light, dark, nature and life gems to help capture new creatures.
Strategy: The damage dealt depends on a monster's element and the enemy's element; attacking a monster with an element that it's susceptible to deals double damage, while attacking it with an element that it is resistant to deals half damage.
Exploring: Explore seven action-packed islands full of wonder and mystery, each with a unique ecosystem that holds different species of monsters.
Magimon Adventures can be downloaded for free from the App Store for all iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/magimon-adventures/id896987262?mt=8. A version for Android is coming soon.
