Idle RPGs are very much in at the moment, with plenty of standout games on the market. Enter Epic Monsters for Android, a super spooky take on the popular genre, and a title that offers a good time to all comers.

In Epic Monsters, you’ll find yourself assembling a veritable motley crew of demons, beasts, and undead from the world’s most fascinating myths and ghost stories. For sure, you’ll be needing all the help you can get to take on the endless – and increasingly difficult – enemy hordes.

Thankfully, your team can be upgraded in a variety of ways. From collecting souls and enchanting items to gathering hero-strengthening relics, there are always plenty of opportunities to get the edge on your competition.

Developer Hinode’s title strives to be accessible – offering a streamlined economy, satisfying but simple controls, and various assist features. It’s really all about making sure you’re having a good time earning, upgrading, and fighting, even when you’re offline.

Daily rewards come thick and fast, giving you plenty of reasons to keep returning for another game or two, as you build a sizeable roster of up to 150 monsters – each with their own unique traits and skills that fit with their rich backstories.

Epic Monsters also features a PvP mode, where you can battle it out against other players across the world and climb the game's leaderboard. And if you really fancy showing off the results of all your hard work, Epic Monsters has various game leagues where you can do just that.
