Since Pokémon games aren’t going to be showing up on the iPhone any time soon, one developer, Riida, decided to take matters into their own hands and develop their own monster game, Little Masters, for iOS platforms… and it looks strikingly similar to Pokémon itself.
“We are trying to bring the beloved Pokemon-style battle to the iPhone!” a Riida staff member posted on the Touch Arcade forums today. “We have been working with some monster designers on the Internet and the game company behind the iPhone game ‘Pocket Summoner’ to create a game on the iPhone.”
Like a lot of other games on phones, Little Masters is a free-to-play title with micro-transactions using paid currency. However, you’ll also be able to earn paid currency by battling with your friends. Riida will update Little Masters in the future with more monsters and skills and abilities.
Little Masters has been submitted to the App Store for review, Riida say, and should be available soon. Here are a couple more screenshots:
