Yokai Tamer is a Rather Dull MMO
With a lot of free time on my hands and most of it being spent laying around, there’s a lot of time for mobile games. So in my wanderings of the mobile games I came across Yokai Tamer, a Japanese MMORPG for iOS and Android. I was intrigued at least by the anime-style of artwork in this game and gave it a download since it was free! Currently they are even doing a collaboration with an anime known to anime lovers alike, Cells at Work.
Upon entering the game you’re faced with picking between a male or female hero. There’s three little varying pictures to the bottom left side of the screen, but as far as I can tell that only changes your profile picture whilst in game. But there you are, with a sword and a mission to slice through things with it. You’ll also find that the game has a manual or auto-pilot to it, and of course we all knew that was coming. It’s a very rare day when you have a mobile game that’s entirely hands-on. So after you set your character off into auto-complete mode you can take a look through all the options that are hidden away on your screen! Although, admittedly this game will have pop-ups occasionally reminding you that to advance more quickly all you need to do is spend more money. Needless to say, this game is very pay to advance and will often remind you of how much better your life will be by spending money with red notifications on various options in the menus to purchase items. But if that doesn’t detract away from your enjoyment of the beauty that can be found in this game, you’re going to enjoy it. Without a doubt, the artstyle is beautiful and the voice acting is cute. You’ll even get a cute partner to follow you around in battles called a Miko, these buddies can be leveled up to boost your stats and also they’ll change in appearance and skills as they level. You’ll also get a mount that can be level and costumed as well, they also will increase your stats and take you places faster! There’s also a ton of things to do and getting around to these places quicker makes it easier! You can even get married and have a baby apparently. I slowly tried to worm my way into my guild leader’s heart by sending gifts, but sadly it’s locked behind levels and when you reach level 180, you’ll find that it’ll cost you a pretty penny to get a top notch wedding. You’ll also get a special ring gem from this marriage that’ll of course, give you stat boosts just like the baby will once it grows up and fights alongside you. You’ll also have the normal things to do in most games, dungeons that can be solo or up to three players. You can also participate in the arena, you’ll go in and either one shot them or you yourself are. There’s also an auto-attack in this arena that you can’t seem to turn off, so you really can’t win from your own skill, moreso how powerful you are. You can also participate in something called Ghost King, which allows you to farm gear as you level up to three times a day.There is also the main quest that you can follow until you hit the level wall and then you can begin participating in sub quests, weekly quests, and guild quests. Occasionally you’ll get a quest called Rebirth, which, admittedly, I got super excited for because it made it seem like I’d be able to unlock a new class. But disappointingly, you just unlock new skills doing this and also various titles to increase your stats. Overall, it’s a nice looking game with cute costumes and skins for your character, mount, and partner. I however would say that if you’re looking for engaging combat, this isn’t the game for you. This is more aimed at getting as high level as possible to look as good as you can. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily, some people just want to look pretty and hit things. So if you’re looking for an anime-style game this is the game for you!
