The Pokemon Company has announced the launch for their latest Mobile Game, Pokemon Co-Master (ポケモンコマスター). The game is currently available for Android users so hurry and grab the APK now!
There has been a lot of hype over Pokemon GO for the past few days but today, we’ll be focusing on Pokemon Co-Master, a brand new board game-based Pokemon mobile game. Pokemon Co-Master is co-developed by a company called Heroz Japan. The company is famous for it’s AI Core technology especially in the board-games genre. Be prepared to squeeze your brain juices as the game can go as long as 300 turns.
The objective of the game is to send one of your Pokemon over to the opponent’s base (mark with a red flag) while preventing the opponent’s Pokemon from entering yours (mark with blue flag). In short, it’s a “Capture the Flag” type of board game. Each Pokemon has a pre-set number of moves it can make. Players will have to decide whether to move your Pokemon towards an open space, or have a direct confrontation with the opponent’s Pokemon. There are also spell cards you can use to boost your Pokemon’s attack before you engage in a battle.
There is an AI function that can technically help you progress faster but I believe at later stages, the AI function might be more of a hindrance than of help.
One of the best feature in the game is it’s 3D Computer Graphics. All the chess pieces looks so good it feels like you’re playing with a real-life chess piece. Everything in the game looks so real.
