Many of the Coromon creatures might also look derivative if you’re used to Pokémon designs. Even so, the game is still worth trying. Coromon is not a ripoff of Pokémon, and if you give it a chance, you’ll enjoy the game.

An appealing riff on the Pokémon role-playing formula which, while a little too safe, has enough small deviations and improvements to justify its existence.

Coromon isn't without its issues, but fans of catching adorable monsters will love it.

Coromon, to the detriment of the obvious similarities, has finally managed to obtain his own identity. What might seem like yet another "copy and paste" product hides more than a surprise, thanks to a fairly layered gameplay. If you are looking for a fun adventure, difficult at the right point and with an atmosphere reminiscent of the Pokémon chapters released on the iconic Game Boy Advance, Coromon is therefore the game that could be for you.

You might simply write off Coromon as a copy of other games. But think of it as more of a game inspired by previous works. While the inspiration is obvious, various design choices within the gameplay are clear upgrades, including difficulty modifiers and the Milestones feature. If you are a fan of monster collecting games, Coromon is differentiated enough to give it a try.

The game feels like it’s meant for those who miss the GBA-era glory days, and it may just satisfy if these particular limiting factors can be overlooked. And, with all that said, it’s certainly a step in the right direction when looking toward the future of a genre that’s more or less being monopolized by Pokemon.

If you know exactly what you’re getting into, Coromon is still a decently good time. It lacks depth, and it feels like it drags on too long for what it is, but if you’re just looking to play an incredibly pretty Pokemon game it is kind of hard to argue with Coromon’s price.

Coromon is a game that wants to look at Pokemon from another angle and disappears too much in other details. We capture creatures with instruments that return to the ball place and save the world every once in a while. However, with the exception of the puzzles that infuriate you, lovers of the genre will play with great pleasure.

One feature that will be good for softcore or hardcore gamers is the difficulty change. You can play on the easiest story level, a normal level, and the most difficult rating. Some things that happen in story mode are different than the hardest mode. One thing I have seen is if your coromon faints you have to release it into the wild. This makes it a mode for the super hardcore gamers. Its small items such as this make this title different than Pokemon.

I’ve scrutinized Coromon pretty thoroughly, I’m not going to deny that. But I don’t think that my decision to do so was unfair. When you’re going to directly compare yourself to something that’s already been established, you open yourself up to the criticism, both positive and negative, that comes along with it. And, truly, there was a bit of both when it came to my outlook on Coromon. Was there a bit more negative than positive? Sure. I think that this game has a way to go (perhaps via means of a sequel) before I could truly say that I’m satisfied with it. But is the potential there? Yeah, absolutely. Between the gorgeous creature spritework and the way that the game simultaneously handles stat distribution and “shiny” hunting via the Potential system, there are some true moments of brilliance tucked away with in this game. And I’d like that brilliance to, *ahem*, shine bright. But it’s going to need some work to get to that stage. And only time will tell if it ever actually gets there.

Freedom Games and TRAGsoft’s monster-taming RPG features a pixel world, turn-based battle system, charming puzzles, and a vast array of monsters to catch. It’s a great homage to a subgenre and a whole era of video games, yet it sadly lacks meaningful, innovative ideas.

Strictly following the feat of your inspirations can prove to be a double-edged sword, but in Coromon's case, the mix of nostalgic formula with punctual additions works too well to be ignore. In the end, the reality is that the adventure through Velua may not be as bright as the sun (or its great reference), but it doesn't stop being fun. And that cannot be overlooked.

A renewal of the monster-collection genre, Coromon takes the well-loved gameplay formulas of its genre predecessors and polishes them for the modern era. By providing unique twists on traditional turn-based combat, a delightful presentation, and a slew of quality-of-life enhancements, Coromon delivers a nostalgic adventure filled with wonder. While it may occasionally stick a little too faithfully to its RPG roots for the less patient creature-collectors, there’s a whole heap of juicy monster content here for any budding trainer looking for a refreshing take on a classic style of game.

Coromon isn't an RPG, it's a mental and physical skillcheck masquerading under the veneer of a beloved children's title. Should you go into it with a thinking cap on instead of nostalgia goggles, you'll walk away with a consistently great game in search of a strong player.

Coromon is a game with a lot of promise that builds on the Pokemon formula. Is it perfect? Not quite yet.

As such, Coromon is something that clearly comes from a place of great respect. Pokemon fans will likely find a game that appreciates what people love about the first five generations of Game Freak's franchise, and even when things get a little clunky there's enough for users to enjoy.

Coromon is a game filled with potential but past sinking sands and perplexing puzzles it starts to fall flat. Fans of the genre will be delighted by the levels of customization thanks to the potential system and easy skill switching. The shake-ups do let Coromon stand on its own and create an enjoyable experience, but it could've evolved to be something a little more.

Coromon is a must play for Pokémon fans, and although it has flaws, fans who normally steer clear of like minded games might find reprieve here, especially for its good price and portability due to the Switch port.
