Title: Pokemon Rumble World
Platform: 3DS
Genre: Action
Language: Japanese
Company: Nintendo
Summary: It’s like the action RPG I’ve been hoping for but was ignorant about until this suddenly popped out free to play! XD But as I mentioned in the Shuffle review, it’ll take FOREVER to play this game completely free, and also requires a LOT of hours. I don’t have the time for that, so in the end I suckered for the full unlock at around $30.

As of last update, rank 70 and slacking off quite a bit to fill the pokedex, but still enjoying!

Title: Pokemon Shuffle / PokeToru
Platform: 3DS, Android
Genre: Puzzle
Language: Japanese
Company: Nintendo
Summary: People complain about any f2p game if they have in-app purchases… but honestly this was better than rumble world in terms of f2p accessibility. I’ve yet to make a single purchase but I can get everything available with a bit of effort on a daily basis, and not even daily is necessary. All you need to do is farm Meowth stage for coins.

^- At least on the 3DS version. I tried the mobile version for a while, and after seeing how nerfed the Meowth stage, on top of EVERYTHING being more expensive, I’m sticking with the 3DS version. It is, after all, Nintendo’s public intent that their mobile games are a mere extension to get their audience to play the games on their home consoles in the end.
