    Terrapets's review

    Published: 2014-03-05, by .

    Collect, battle and build in this cross between Pokémon and Farmville

    • Attractive cartoony visuals
    • Original combination of Farmville + Pokémon styles
    • Many different facets to explore
    • Can't see pets roaming world you create
    • Battle system a little simplistic for my taste

    "More like terrific pets"

    CerebralFix Ltd's Terrapets is almost a perfect blend of what you'd get if you crossed Farmville with Pokémon. Instead of wandering around a pre-designed world seeking monsters, you cultivate your own environment full of many different habitats to lure a wide variety of critters into your traps.

    Use your gold reserves to purchase resources to rebuild the barren landscape into something lush and varied. Place and bait traps in the swamp, on the grasslands, in the tundra - all will result in diverse species awaiting capture or battle. The capturing mechanism is unique; you'll use spinners to toss food, cards, and even poison at the wild monsters in the effort to add them to your menagerie. Level up your captured beasties and customize their moves to make them harder, better, faster, stronger. Battle is also rather quirky, involving a rock-paper-scissors system instead of the complex Pokémon type chart.

    There are loads of thoughtful details to keep those reared on Farmville engaged: placing higher level bait will net higher level creatures, you can mine rocks for gold every so often, world events mean the opportunity to catch super rare pets, etc etc.

    One big thing missing from Terrapets: you never get to see your captured pets wandering about the world you've created. There would be much more motivation to invest time and effort in a sprawlingly beautiful world if you were able to watch your mini-beasts interact with it, even on a minimal automatic level. As such, I found myself a bit listless with the game within a few minutes - but super Farmville-style fans likely won't encounter the same issue.

    It's a great idea to merge the Pokémon and Farmville game styles, and CerebralFix Ltd's Terrapets does it successfully. I'd love just that little something extra to push it over the edge.

    Another in app purchase I want to see is a star ruby producer. Like the gold coin producer that gives gold coins every 30 minutes, maybe the star ruby producer can give 5 star rubies every hour. One thing I've wanted to see for awhile is online PVP (Player vs Player). Captain Awesome requested it, but I don't think you got it. Right now it's just PVC (Player vs Computer). With online PVP, you can battle friends and other trappers. I'd really like to see a new trailer as well. The current one was Terrapets in it's BETA! I found some grammar issue. I finally got a gluzzard and I found this mistake, "If they aren't doing the one, they're doing the other." It should say, "If they aren't doing one, they're doing the other." The move metal screech description says "The user screeches louder, injuring them and slowing them." It should say "The user does a loud screech, injuring them and slowing down the opponent." In lompous' description, it says "Lompous boxing inspired a style of martial arts used by the early polar peoples." It should say "Lompous boxing inspired a style of martial arts used by the early polar people." In tuleg's description, it says "Though big and frightening, tulegs is an herbivore the prefers to hide in caves and just wants to be friends." It should say "Though big and frightening, tulegs is a herbivore that prefers to hide in caves and just wants to be friends."

    I really loved the idea and the creatures, oh my, the creator has had brilliant inventive seriously! Only thing, the game is too slow, it feels like playing some sort of farmville in very slow mode, and monsters are a side part of the game! It is z pity since the game is about monsters, I expected more action, fighting and catching.. I am not expert, just a bit of a geeky fun of monsters games, but what about releasing a version 2 of the game, with new monsters, new way of playing, more fighting, more adventure instead of cultivaging lands and waiting for monsters to coem to you? Because your idea of a monster land is brilliant, but the gameplay is too boring, I have tried for weeks. Only thing that kept me there was discovering new creatures.. and also, paper, scissors and rock system is a bit old.. what about a nw element system, like the Chinese one (5 elements rather than the classic 4 of western magic or the common pokemon one... these are just ideas anyway, I hope to inspire you...) :) Also, you might want to change the name of the monsters: Your Terrapets sound very much like the Terapets of another game (who has seen 3 versions released) and like another game called Terra Monsters... too very similar names to choose yours over antoher! I promise, I am not being mean, just I can see potential of your game, and it is sad to see those ideas of yours thrown away! Please please, I would play your game if you released a new version!!!! Please consider it.. and the graphic of those beautiful monsters, jeez, I really love it! Ever thought to make your game known on forums, blogs or releasing free stuff online so people can get to know the game (for examples, encyclopedia of monsters.. Every other game, either official like pokemon and digimon, or on Android like Terapets, have online encyclopedias. I could not find the one for this, Terrapets! Please release it as I am in love with your monsters!!!) . :) You need new ideas, to make your game original, different from others but still very enjoyable... again, I am not expert, and I hope i did not offend you, but as a player, I loved your graohic and creatures, I did not enjoy the game much as it gets quickly boring :( sorry..
