Yo-Kai Watch is an RPG game in which we travel around the world and summon special "ghosts" called yokai. With their help we fight battles with other creatures. The title at first glance resembles the popular series Pokemon, but differs from it with a few elements. Level-5 studio is responsible for producing versions for AND, 3DS and iOS platforms.
The player plays the role of a young boy or girl. Unlike other peers, however, the protagonist has an unusual skill - he is able to see the title yokai, i.e. nice ghosts living in our world every day. He owes this ability to a special watch, which allows him to summon creatures at any time and use their abilities.
Our task is first and foremost to help - but we are often disturbed by other, less friendly yokai. When we come across one of them, we fight turn-based duels. The reward is the ability to befriend the creature and use his skills later. The fight itself was designed with the capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS in mind, but it was not a problem to transfer it to smartphones and tablets, because on the console we had to use the lower touch screen anyway.
Yo-Kai Watch's graphic design looks better than the portable console version, as the creators have boosted the resolution of the game. Apart from that, the line characteristic for manga and anime is also present in Yo-Kai Watch, and the whole thing has an above-average colourful and "nice" character. The world is full of charming yokis, and even more dangerous ones are characterized by a design that evokes a smile on the face.
