But the last spark of it's flame fell upon Lukha, an apprentice of the adorers and Draknar's last hope.

Adore is a monster-taming action game

Adore is a monster-taming action game where the main character, Lukha, is able to summon and control creatures to fight by his side. Customize your gameplay according to the creatures you capture. Each of them has very different characteristics and abilities.

For £16, you really can't help but be impressed with Adore. It has all the hallmarks of a big budget game, whilst staying humble and tapping into a niche market. Obviously there are parallels to be drawn with Pokémon style games, but don't let that put you off if you're not a fan of the genre. The basics are easy enough to get to grips with quickly and nothing seems too much of a challenge. One work of warning though, in the early stages get used to saving manually on a regular basis as I decided to see how robust my character's energy was, by getting him killed. The result was that I had to restart the tutorial from the beginning.

Once you've collected a few beasties, you can explore the game's synergy system, which allows more powerful combos by creating synergies between them. Each synergy that a creature has, will activate an extra ability or modify your creature. Each creature also has a special ability that can be used when its energy bar is full. You have to decide when is the best moment to use the special ability more effectively.

You can also gather ingredients during your adventures and then create unique dishes to help you and your creatures.

It's a fun game that rewards those who love exploring every nook and cranny. There are enough new creatures introduced on a regular basis to ensure that the game keeps dragging you back for more exploration.
