Whereas most roguelike dungeon-crawlers have you play as adventurers, here is one that lets you play in a very different role - as a Yokai! After scanning for hidden spirits in your area, the game has draws in and traps them all in an endless dungeon. You are now the lucky owner of one of these spirits, and have the ability to command it as you explore with the mission of bringing others under your command.

There are two modes, one for challenging how far you can explore, and the other for finding scrolls to unlock more Yokai. There are more than a dozen that you can collect, from the mischievous Karakasa, to the powerful Kitsune. Each of these delightfully frightful spectres has abilities that you can use to help you survive the dungeon’s dangers. Delve deep and see if you have what it takes to command the full might of Japanese mythology’s most feared "ayakashi" (collective name for Yokai)!

▲ Explore a bottomless dungeon filled with supernatural Japanese creatures.

▲ Collect more than a dozen different types to serve as your minions.

▲ Use their signature abilities to survive the dungeon’s many perils.

Do you wanna be the very best, like no one ever was? The best CEO, that is! Your father, ‘Chairman Oak’, has allowed you to start your own company under the ‘Golden Spoon Group’. It is up to you to get out there and collect employees and beat your sibling rivals, in this hilarious parody of corporate life!

After deciding on the names of your character and company, tap on ‘Adventure’ at the bottom of the screen to venture out in search of possible ‘WorkeMons’ to join your company. Tapping on ‘Company’ allows you to keep an eye on current workers, and tapping ‘My Room’ lets you check up on and improve your company skills.

▲ Each interview skill used requires a skill point, shown as red orbs under your name. Increasing in level increases your skill points.

▲ The ‘Company’ screen lets you keep an eye on your cash, health, and more. Tap on snoozing or chattering WorkeMons to wake them up!

▲ Tap on ‘Luxury’ to purchase items and amenities to give yourself a boost, like a health club or some coffee.

Each ‘Adventure’ costs some health points, and allows you to ‘interview’ a new WorkeMon. Tap ‘Use Skill’ to unleash moves such as ‘Yell’ and ‘Check Resume’ to lower their desired salary and pride meter – the aim is to get them as low as possible, then tap ‘Offer A Job’ to have them join your company!

Each WorkeMon can be trained, promoted, or fired by tapping on their desk in the office. As the days and nights cycle, employees come and go while earning you gold and XP. Feeling a little tough? Tap ‘Nitpicking’ on the lower-right to yell and have your workers move faster for a period of time! But remember – have enough cash to pay your minions by the end of the month, or else they will pack up and resign!

Wait… what was that? Was it really Bigfoot? While in reality this can be debated, you have no choice but to believe it when you find there are dozens of Bigfeet in need of rescue! Take control of the last remaining free little Bigfoot, and save your pack while avoiding capture by greedy Hunters and notorious secret organizations!

Tap and hold on the screen while swiping in different directions to move, or tap on a location to tip-toe there quietly. You can also hold and swipe quickly to speed up – useful for when you are detected by the enemy and need a quick escape. Tap the yellow icon at the bottom of the screen to activate temporary ‘big Bigfoot’ mode and unleash a rampage on everything and everyone around you!

▲ Unleashing your temporary ‘big’ mode lets you demolish all enemies and the environment around you. Use it to your advantage!

▲ Once you free all of your pack in the level, all enemies will be alerted – run to the exit as fast as you can!

▲ Check out the skills and power-ups of each character, and tap on ‘Upgrade’ to give them a boost.

Finish each level by smashing open the crates containing your pack and escaping through the escape portal. As you unlock more levels you will need to use cunning strategy to maneuver your way around enemies, from sneaking past unknowing secret agents to attracting the attention of Hunters to clear pathways!

Cracking open crates can unlock not only your pack, but other mythological beings too. Tap into ‘Species’ from the home screen to view and play as creatures like a Yeti or the Slenderman, all of which can have their skills upgraded using bones collected through gobbling down critters found throughout the levels. Switch between characters to take advantage of their powers, and save your species once and for all!

Control Luke Skywalker on the field by tapping on a land patch once to make him move, or twice to make him sprint. Tap on an enemy unit so Luke can attack them. Tap on his Leader’s skill to unleash a deadly attack. But don’t get cocky – you will have to wait for the skill to cool down before you can use it again. Protect your Ally Defense Turrets – they are your primary machine fighters that protect your Shield Generator.

▲ Drag and drop your unit cards to a strategic position before the enemy so you can penetrate their base.

▲ Help Luke Skywalker succeed in the first few levels of the game - doing so will help you unlock the other icons.

▲ Gauge your battle performance by taking the time to look at your card deck. Team up with other players to win more battles!

There is a guild system that you can take advantage of – it is an easier method for finding potential teammates and joining them in future battles.

After you win a battle, you will automatically receive a bonus card deck which you can immediately put to use for your next game.

Put your skills to the test by coming up with the most lethal strategy combinations you can think of – assemble custom decks which feature special heroes and upgrade all army units to become victorious in your quest for intergalactic dominance!
