With the simplicity of exploration and building, the title is accessible to just about everyone who owns a PC or Xbox 360, though the mobile version of the game remains fairly lackluster in features.

    Deozoa will be a monster-catching game released for iOS, Android, PC, Mac, Linux, and—most interestingly—the Ouya. Although it pitches itself as a game in the same genre as Pokémon, you only pair one creature per character, and the battles are not one-on-one combat.
