Barcode Fingermon lets you collect monsters simply by scanning barcodes and QR codes

Magic Cube and Dizcon have announced the official release of Barcode Fingermon, the quirky mobile RPG that lets you scan barcodes to summon and collect monsters in the game. Now available to download for both iOS and Android users, the unique title combines the combat mechanics of Finger Shot RPG with the barcode scan system of Barcode Kingdom. It also brings together elements of Mirror Land's worldbuilding.

In Barcode Fingermon, players can expect to engage in slingshot-style battles with their Fingermons as they summon monsters from QR codes and barcodes. Players can collect these characters and level them up, as well as engage in four types of Main leagues and different Event leagues as well.

There is a wide variety of special conditions that need to be met during these events, along with thrilling Boss hunting quests that will require players to use all of their Fingermons to succeed. There are 160 different types of Fingermon to collect, each with its own stats and abilities. You can also go Field Hunting to catch Fingermon in the wild.
