    "This game is like those movies that start out strong and interesting but get quite boring and draggy by the end. It gets more and more difficult to level up my characters. However, i rly appreciate the graphics and creatures on neo monsters that's why it still deserves four stars."

    "Well, I am impressed to say that Micromon is a game very similar to Pokemon. I mean, even the elemental aspects of the attacks of the monsters, the aerial, water-type, fire, normal, and special skills were also the same. My tip is to be wise in spending diamonds."

    "Very much like Pokemon, except that you get to build actual houses and managing an island that serves as the trainer's (we are the trainer) home. Monsters are also tradable, reminds me of the old school gameboy where you can trade pokemons with your friends."

    "Can I just say that in terms of the gameplay, this is really like Pokemon and this is one of those games that are fully functional for iOS devices, even on iPad. But yeah, the choice of the species of monster is a lot so you won't have a limited choice. I voted for this as one of the best games like Pokemon"

    "An emphasis on RPG can really be seen in this game. Although this is an ipad game like Pokemon, most of the journey will require to roam around, which I sort of hate. I just hope they have an option to make the game fast-paced."
