Day 64 – Rick and Morty Pocket Mortys
Never would I have thought that a show so crazy and rickdiculous could ever spawn a successful game; but Adult Swim have done it with Rick and Morty: Pocket Mortys. It’s so blatantly a Pokemon ripoff and it doesn’t even try to hide it. They have combined two extremely popular franchises and are milking as many jokes out of that as possible. For fans of both, this game is absolutely hilarious.
This game has just about as much content as real Pokemon games, which is astonishing considering the fact that it is free. While there are hundreds if not thousands of different ‘Mortys’ to collect, train, and do battle with, the lack of different types for each one changes what was a great system of pros and cons in Pokemon to effectively a game of rock, paper, scissors in this game. Sadly the new multiplayer mode offers little other than battling your friends, and playing it alone is boring as servers are usually deserted.
The graphics are good and retain the zany, cartoonish style of the Rick and Morty show whilst also presenting the characters as small and squished people, like in Pokemon. The soundtrack is also great, with many songs pulled straight from the show which add to the games feel.
Overall I would say this game is fun but it does require some thought and time in terms of progressing through it and levelling up. It is a perfect extra for fans of the show, and is sure to provide them with further fun with their favourite characters.
