Ah, Pokemon spinoff games. I recently picked up Pokemon Conquest a week ago, intrigued by the various positive reviews on it I read online.
This game is a simplified mix between Fire Emblem, Dungeon Dice Monsters and Civilization. The result is a terribly addictive and unusual Pokemon experience.
In fact, Pokemon Conquest reminds me of this obscure domain.com.au billboard located near Flinders Street station:
“YOU’RE NOT A HOME BUYER. YOU’RE A WARLORD IN A BATTLE FOR TERRITORY.”
(My phone camera is sucky.)
It took the basic idea of a role-playing strategy game and turned it into something exciting and new. Or, at least new to the Pokemon franchise.
