The guys behind Pokémon are getting used to releasing new games and updates almost without any prior notice, just to give us a surprise. It looks like once the hype over Pokémon GO has calmed down a bit, they're now back with other kinds of titles based on the universe dwelled by these creatures, as is the case of the recently launched Pokémon Magikarp Jump, and the latest title to appear: PokéLand.
But here we won't find any Pokémons to be involved and incorporated to our Pokédex. Its development is inspired by the Rumble series but this time around adapted to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets: mainly for iPhone and Android.
Set out to conquer the 15 floors of the Champion Tower
In this free-to-play game, we'll have to try to catch over 130 creatures, spread around more than 50 different islands that we'll have to explore fighting and battling it out against enemy Pokémons. The gameplay is all about advancing through the screens, defeating all those creatures we come across until we face up against a final Pokémon. And us we manage to wipe them all out, we'll add coins to our counter.
Inspired by Nintendo Wii's Rumble.
Your ultimate goal is to reach the Champion Tower. Once there, you'll have to climb its 15 floors, making use of features and functions such as the following:
- Unlock new islands by spending diamonds.
- Special detector to locate Pokémons that can only be used every 30 minutes.
- Make use of power-ups, boosters, and other elements you can equip your Pokémons with.
- Compatible with your Nintendo Account so that you can synchronize and transfer data between devices.
Similar to Nintendo Wii's Pokémon Rumble
How to play Pokémon PokéLand isn't at all difficult. In fact, you'll soon realize that your creature moves and attacks your selected enemy all by itself, with the intensity of the attack depending on your energy when tapping around the screen. All coins dropped by your enemy will be automatically collected.
After the success of Pokémon GO in 2016 with its augmented reality system, it looks like the owners of this franchise are getting fond of releasing games for mobile devices. This new one will definitely hook on all the saga's fans just like Duel and Magikarp Jump already have done.
