After ‘Pokemon Shuffle’ , ‘The Pokemon Company’ introduces its second game ‘Pokemon Duel’. For those who havent played ‘Pokemon Shuffle’, it is a matching game like Candy Crush where the Pokemons use certain moves to decrease its HP and then catch it.
Now, let us see what ‘Pokemon Duel’ has to offer us.
The game starts off with a awesome sequence of graphics. Though the size of the game is around 50 MB, we have to download some extra files before we can start off with the game.
After this a blue haired character named ‘Luca’ teaches us the basics of Pokemon Duel. The game mechanics is pretty simple. It is like a board game where who have to reach a certain goal and block your opponent from doing the same.
The board in pretty simple. You just fave to reach the flag of your opponent by moving the pokemons by their respective move points (MP). If two pokemons meet each then they can fight it out in a game of luck using a spinning wheel.
The numbers written beside each Pokemon is their respective move point i.e. the maximum number of places it can move. In the first turn, all MP is decreased by 1 as shown here. When your Pokemon reaches the opposite side, you win.
One of the most positive aspect of the game is the fact that you can partly design how your character looks.
There are options of online battling against other players and your friends and also battling in the quest.
Now to me, this game was below average, Though the graphics of the game is awesome, the main gameplay lacks excitement. It doesn’t take the Pokemon type advantages into consideration during the battle. ‘Pokemon Shuffle’ was a better game, according to me, So, what do you like and dislike about ‘Pokemon Duel’.
