Default Pokémon Rumble World

Pokémon Rumble World is a Free to Play game for the Nintendo 3DS which can be downloaded from the e Shop. In the game you are in a Toy World and battle using Toy Pokémon. You travel to different areas by using hot air balloons where you'll encounter a variety of Pokémon (different hot air balloons require different times to charge). When you defeat Pokémon, you have a chance to collect them (you'll find them laying on the ground). Some Pokémon, especially boss Pokémon are harder to collect than others but there are also various mechanics to increase your chances. Aside from collecting Pokémon, you can accept challenges from the king.

There is also a variety of items to buy in the game, functional ones like trees which can increase your stats (attack, defense, speed), the chance to make a Pokémon Wobble (which is a guaranteed capture when defeated), the amount of coins (P) you receive or the likelihood to receive Pokémon with special traits. There are also decorative items like clothing and frames or backgrounds for the ingame screenshot feature.

There are two currencies in the game: coins (P) and PokéDiamonds. Coins are dropped by Pokémon when you defeat them in a stage or when you release caught Pokémon. PokéDiamonds can be earned mainly through challenges and be given by Miis received over the Spotpass/Streetpass feature. Other than that they can be bought through the eShop. P are used for some shop items like some of the trees and outfits. The most important purpose of PokéDiamonds is buying hot air balloons so you have new areas to visit. Other than that you can also use them for: trees in the shop, some outfits, Mega stones, cleaning rusty Pokémon, reviving a deafeated Pokémon in astage, buying a bigger Pokémon house (so you can keep more Pokémon), skipping the waiting time for a hot air balloon, stopping the level selection wheel...

Compared to Pokémon Shuffle which may have completely different mechanics, but is too a free to play game, Pokémon Rumble World will keep you entertained for longer before you need to wait for things to recharge. Though, once you've played a bit, seeing new things in the game (AKA getting new ballloons) takes longer and the gameplay may slow down quite a lot while this decrease is not as big in Shuffle. In the beginning, you'll have enough PokéDiamonds to buy balloons but later in the game, new balloons become more expensive and collecting Diamonds becomes more tedious. It is possible to finish the game without paying anything but I expect it to take a very long time. Fortunately, when you make the decision to spend real money the offers are quite okay in my opinion. Special and unusual for a free to play game, the game also has a limit on how much money you can spend before the purchase option is locked (you can buy 3000 PokéDiamonds in total) and an alternate way to earn PokéDiamonds is added.

Now that was a short and very incomplete introduction to the game.

Have you played this game before?
Have you played its predecessors? (not free to play)
How do you like it?
Have you decided to spend any money on it?

Default AW: Pokémon Rumble World

I'd like to update this thread with a notice to all people who aren't interested in free to play games: A retail version of Pokémon Rumble World has been announced in Japan and a release in other countries may be likely. In the retail version you start out with 3000 diamonds and can receive 40 diamonds from the mine every day from the very beginning. The microtransactions have been completely removed. As a comparison in the current "free" version you can buy a maximum of 3000 diamonds and at this point the mine gets unlocked.

I'm okay with this game. I was at first thrown off by the "toy Pokemon" idea, but I've gotten the hang of it by now. While I haven't cared to play lately, I've recruited plenty of Pokemon, so woo.

Have you played this game before?
I have!

Have you played its predecessors?
I have not.

How do you like it?
It's pretty nice for passing the time. Not something I'd really spend extended periods of time playing though.

Have you decided to spend any money on it?
I have not. I don't really have any money to spend, and even if I did, I'm not a huge fan of microtransactions anyways.
