Pets vs Monsters is simple for players of all ages. The game's tone is appealing to younger players; they'll like riding wolves, bears, tigers, and fantastical birds into battle to save the world against monsters. There are endless environments, lots of monsters to fight, and lots of pets to collect. Players can challenge opponents to a duel; there are also battle games where players enter an arena and fight solo or in a team against others. Scoreboards are available in game so players can see how far they've gone in any challenge, the number of pets they've collected, and quests they've completed.

Players looking for things to do other than fight will be disappointed because the entire story is about fighting monsters in your town or fighting though monsters during quests. Over time, players will find the game gets harder because their selection of free pets is limited, forcing them to purchase pets to succeed. While it may be visually appealing for a younger group of players, the story limitations and obvious push for players to buy content holds Pets vs Monsters back.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
