    "I was sick of playing Pokemon, since I had played it since I was a child. I still loved the mechanics and visuals of the game of Pokemon, so I wanted to try something similar. WorkeMon is great because it looks like Pokemon's graphics and has a cartoon-like feel. It has a trainer, a turn-based RPG battle system resembling Pokemon, and there is a progress of growth throughout the game."

    "I've been playing Pokemon games for years. Sometimes the games can be repetitive and lose their appeal. While looking for similar games I came across WorkeMon. This game is like Pokemon but in a completely new setting. The graphics and game play make for a very enjoyable experience!"

    "I got sick of playing another monster trainer game, so I tried this one out. It was more exciting and gave me more control of my playing experience. I will not switch back. It was wicked fun!"

    "A must-have for any fan of 'mons' collecting games! I first tried Bulu Monster (for free!) last week, and have barely put my phone down since. The in-app purchases are reasonable and of good value, and the game is plenty fun enough even without paying. Try it today and we may see each other in multiplayer!"

    "This is a fun and exciting game. I like how I can interact with friends or other players to search for the monsters. I really get engaged each time I play this game. Best of all, it is free to download. It is also easy to use and learn. Very fun."

In the over twenty years since then, I have never played a game as great as Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2. A sequel to the original, this game improves on the formula in every major respect, including also a brilliant story and delicately-balanced gameplay. It is fun both for experts and for casual players alike!"

    "If you've graduated beyond Pokemon, as I have, then you might enjoy this game. I find the concepts here both refreshing and scary. The digital world out there is full of bad guys, when you think about it, adpating a warrior mentality and enlisting teammates against them sounds like a good way to go (and train.)"

    "I purchased this as a gift for my step-son, he is absolutely obsessed with it and will not put it down! Yo-Kai Watch 2 is an amazing sequel because it that takes all of them game play, rules, and game design from what worked in the first game, refines the playing process and smooths out the wrinkles by expanding the frontiers in all the right directions creating an Role Playing Game (RPG) that kids literally become hooked on, non-stop. It might appear as though it is a Pokémon clone, but it's actually a big, immersive sandbox adventure with some great ideas of its own. It reminds me of a blend of Final Fantasy and Zelda games. I was playing it for a few hours and my step-son was getting upset because I would not share the controller. The style, comedy, and varying difficulty level settings will make it a RPG aimed for younger players, but don't dismiss it even if you like your RPG games to have dark themes and adult humor. You never know, Yo-Kai Watch 2 might be exactly what you need even if you are an Adult."

    "I've been playing this game for a few days and as far as I can tell, it's very similar to Pokemon. You collect animals, build teams of them and battle other people. I haven't played any recent Pokemon games so I don't know how good they are in terms of gameplay, so I can't say whether this is BETTER, but if you don't want a Pokeon game for some reason, or you've already played them all and want more, this is a good substitute."

I have not grown bored once since downloading it. I really like the game play and the look of the game, and it is a lot of fun breeding different hybrids of the dragons. If you are looking for a fun game, and you like dragons, then download this game today!"

    "Siralim is a RPG game that is similar enough to Pokemon for people who are looking to branch out from the Pokemon games. The graphics remind me of 16 bit Zelda games so there's also the cool nostalgia aspect of the game. Siralim is available on Steam."
