Sick of saving the world? Try destroying it! I Am Monster: Idle Destruction lets you create a squad of monstrous Kaiju to demolish cities and take down enemies.
The monsters move and fight on their own, but you can take an active role in the havoc by triggering special attacks to maximise damage. Buildings, vehicles and the hapless Redshirts sent to stop the beasts don’t stand a chance.
The special attacks have cooldown timers, which really come into play when you’ve destroyed enough stuff to unlock a Boss Brawl. Defeating these higher-powered enemies requires smart use of your Kaiju’s specials – and knowing when to switch to another member of your squad.
Torch your foe with the giant lizard Rogzora, then swap to oversized ape Goriko for some ground-and-pound while your other monsters recharge.
The carnage stays delightfully cartoony thanks to I Am Monster’s bright, colourful graphics and cuddly-creature design. There’s depth here as well: Bosses drop goodies used to upgrade your behemoths, keeping them a very large step ahead of the do-good civilians.
And your squad gets some smaller pals in the form of adorably scary pets that help your monsters wreck things.
Best of all, I Am Monster’s beast brigade continues to attack enemies – and earn precious resources – even when you aren’t playing. No city is safe!
