Nexomon is a game where you catch monsters known as… well, Nexomon. One of the game’s goals is, of course, to catch ‘em all – it is a Pokémon-like game after all. The game’s primary goal however, is to stop the most powerful tamer of them all – a spiky haired dude named Nexolord.
You play as child of two scientists and you’re accompanied by a talking robot called Atlas who’s basically your sidekick. You’ll venture the world of Nexomon as you go on a journey of stopping the Nexolord and catching as many monsters as you can along the way.
The core gameplay revolves around Nexomon battles. During fights, your Nexomon will take damage and you can heal them at healing centres in cities. You can have up to six Nexomon with you for battles, and you can use all of them one by one to attack any Nexomon you encounter in the wild. Just make sure that you don’t reduce a wild Nexomon’s health to zero if you want to catch it.
That brings us to one of the more annoying elements of Nexomon. You need to buy Nexotraps to catch Nexomon, and each of these traps costs 250 coins. You’ll earn coins by winning battles against wild Nexomon, and also by fighting other trainers. It’s fairly easy, but we still felt that 250 coins is a high price for these Nexotraps, especially considering that sometimes you can’t catch Nexomon with one trap. Almost every time we threw a trap, the Nexomon would break out of the first trap and be caught on the second or even the third try.
That is frustrating because there’s no skill involved here – it’s just how the game has been coded. During battles some Nexomon can put their rivals to sleep or paralyse them. We found it particularly frustrating that even after we put a wild Nexomon to sleep, we couldn’t catch it with a Nexotrap on the first try. That aspect of the game feels a bit rigged.
