Zuko Monsters Game Released on Apple’s App Store for FREE

Zuko Monsters Game Released on Apple's App Store for FREE

It’s been teased last year and scheduled to come out December 2012 – there’s been a delay, which is par for the course in the industry – but Zuko Monsters is finally available on the iTunes App Store, and it’s available for FREE. You can download the game to your device via the following link: http://www.zukomonsters.com/

First, comparisons with the Pokemon franchise can’t be helped. But that’s not entirely a bad thing, as Pokemon became massively successful due to its quality – if Zuko Monsters managed to be as good, then all is well, and probably even better considering it’s free to play.
