Beastie Bay is actually nothing new, considering that it’s been available on Android for quite some time now. Also, it seems to offer nothing new in the way of mobile gameplay, considering that it’s essentially a blend of property management and monster collecting.
But if you’re a fan of Kairosoft’s brand of gaming, then you’ll nonetheless find Beastie Bay to your liking.
Specifically, Beastie Bay is a blend of FarmVille-style island management and Pokemon-style “beastie” collecting.
As the game’s directive goes, you have to survive after finding yourself washed ashore a deserted island and surrounded by savage beasts.
Interestingly, to survive in Beastie Bay means managing your resources in order to transform the island into a destination paradise. In addition, it means capturing beasties, trading them with friends, and training them to fight for you.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later, Beastie Bay is available now in the App Store as a freemium game. Note, though, that it is not yet optimized for iPhone 5.
Note also that game data is stored on your individual devices only. As a result, your progress cannot be transferred between devices nor can it be restored after deleting and reinstalling the game.
