Japanese Tamagotchi toy, whose popularity today is not as high as before, allowed many of us to care for virtual pets, without making any effort to this. Then came a variety of The Sims, a place where animals have occupied people, but after this, these games were distributed to social networks and mobile devices. IOS for such things is nothing new, but so bright games like Monster Life, in this genre have not appeared.

As pets game offers us the monsters look and name looks like a relevant animals Krabstr, Akulstr, Sobakstr and others. They are born on the farm, like the hatching of the egg carton, and require constant care mdash; their feed is necessary, to entertain. A few minutes later Crank evolve and become more mature, but they need to take care of even more. Washing, feeding, training mdash; all that allows beings to get stronger and prepare for future fights.

Battle Monster Life in the most simple: you choose which of the men put on opponents, and then watch what happens, occasionally pressing laquo; critical udarraquo.; Impact force, defense and speed depend on what stage of evolution is pet, but in a fight you can increase these parameters laid out a large sum of laquo; druzhbyraquo stones.; And to get these stones will only be when visiting the farms of other players.

Yes, the local system is identical to the famous thereof laquo; fermereraquo Vesely, and other similar projects: the player can look at other people’s farms, if he has friends on Facebook is someone who plays in Monster Life. If there are none, you can refer to the social network and to find a publisher Gameloft casual farm mdash; essence remains the same. However, friends to be a little easier mdash; can give each other gifts (immediately recall seeds and fertilizer from the same laquo; Merry fermeraraquo ;) , to some extent simplify gameplay.

Although you can do without it: you simply have to pay attention to other people’s pets, pet them (by dragging your finger across the screen), play with them, shaking your device, mdash; and sooner or later will be a small gift. Results in the game are three types of currency: laquo; druzhbyraquo stones, to help in battle, as well as gold and blue crystals. The first two resources easy to find, but never have enough crystals. To get the most comfortable playing Monster Life, will still shell out and give developers a few dollars.

Fact is that every monster after the fight to rest. If the first stage of the evolution of the expectation of a few minutes, on the second to wait for an hour until the creature wakes up. You can not speed it up, but you can buy a new pet, but not all of them are purchased for gold, often requires the crystals. In addition, for the most rapid development is also required to create the attachment of crystals mdash; that offer a noble metal is a far less experience. Do not forget about all kinds of jewelry, bringing substantial bonuses, and other goods at the local store.

As in most of these games, everything depends on mdash; possible to play without investing money, but will have to wait several hours to perform a couple of actions. If you have kids (that they designed the game), their patience for such feats, most likely, will not be enough, and at least three hundred crystals have to buy for # 36, 10. And those snbsp, given the price of creatures and buildings, run out very quickly. If you want to wait, you can do without unnecessary waste, and enjoy high quality made game with extensive features and nice graphics.

    Happy Street

    Download Happy Street from AppStore

    Happy Street starts quickly mdash; not really showing any splash, developers immediately put us face the fact: Build a minute on the side of an empty city roads. First player places the home, then shop, slot machines, and in the meantime people coming more and more. Street becomes truly happy.

    Ideological game similar to Monster Life, but the characters do not have to mess around here. Main mdash; build more buildings, not to allow residents and visitors to get bored and just watch their behavior. Great visual component of the game is evident in the first place mdash; such nice, with soul-drawn characters are rarely seen today. And then, as they try on new glasses or happy birthday, I want to see again and again.

    Since street called Happy, everything is impregnated with love, fill a separate scale. Catch the animal on the bike and was invited to a local store mdash; get heart. A couple more will get you to help one another find townspeople in the crowd. When the scale is full, you can activate laquo; fiesturaquo; mdash; sales accelerated several times, only have time to replenish stocks of goods.

    Trade itself is arranged very simply mdash; no need to spend money to buy new things, there is a variety of categories and, therefore, there is no hard choices from the category laquo; is more profitable? raquo;. Merchants sell themselves all that is, and when the tray icon appears on the box, you just click on it and nothing to worry about. But if you fill a particular store a certain amount of time will be available to improve it, with which goods become more expensive.

    But not all so simple. For the construction of new buildings and the need to improve existing wood, and grow trees in the forest can only mdash; a separate location. You can also find an analogue of the kitchen, where cooking is almost unnecessary food and useful potions. Around this structure grow mushrooms and flowers mdash; one of the main ingredients in recipes. Having two locations imposes severe limitations, as the original site disastrously low, and their extension to pay is very rare currency.

    Originally

    Accumulate coins easily mdash; give them an easy task for the performance, so buy a rather big part of the street still succeed. But then the orders are becoming more complex: they will say cook potion prescription for five hours (and to find the necessary ingredients in the allotted time is incredibly difficult), you will be asked to construct a building, which is not enough money. In the end, you can sit out half a day without the necessary rare currency, so you get a couple of coins, of which everything is not enough.

    On the other hand, the game is balanced in such a way that the additional land is often not required. Upon reaching the next level player gets access to new buildings, for which the ulitsenbsp, most often there is a place. The same applies to the forest mdash; enough to plant five or six trees, and wood enough for all that is necessary. Why invest real money is not even necessary mdash; simply did not have anything to spend.

    Happy Street was obviously created with great attention to the balance mdash; is a free game for you really do not need to pay even in the process, as there is almost always something to do without it. But thank the developers still want to, even if the dollar mdash; visual component for a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere, leaving you would not want to.

    Pros:

    • necessarily invest real money;
    • pleasing visual style;
    • game constantly surprises with new opportunities.

    Disadvantages:

    • complete lack of control over the characters.
