    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.

    Background Story:
    The once lush and beautiful world of Hakawa is now little more than a barren wasteland. You are in charge of a special wildlife reserve where you have the important task of revitalizing the land and building a vibrant habitat for Terrapets; mysterious creatures who are the embodiment of the environments that they inhabit. Terrapets from the swamplands are sneaky and vitriolic, while those from the woodlands are steadfast and strong. If the environment is harsh and unforgiving then so too are the Terrapets that live there.

    There was a time when Terrapets were numerous, but not anymore. You have the power within your hands to return the world to what it once was. You can revitalize Hakawa with a range of different terrain types and customize the environment as you see fit. From frozen tundra and volcanic mountains to thick forests and vast oceans, you have many different options for creating an enticing reservation for all the different Terrapets.
