Kairosoft can take 16-bit graphics and a few scripts and turn them into fun over and over again without fail. This time the Japanese mobile game developer has strayed a bit from its typical approach, though, by combining its world builder-style titles with a Pokemon-esque RPG element. Yeah, it's weird.

You're a castaway on a tropical island with a pet companion, you explore the world, fight and capture other animals, and build a resort empire paradise. Oh, Japan.

Beastie Bay is free and ad-supported, though the ads can be removed for $3.99 via an in-app purchase. Pick it up on the Play Store now.

    @e334eee9ce793a45f5688842b57ee55e:disqus There's an ad (standard mobile size) at the bottom of the screen at all times. You can pay a one time fee of $4 to remove it. That's it.

      Not to mention it's a dollar cheaper than they're for pay games.

    Look at the reviews VERY carefully, specifically the second review and the overall star rating..

    I LOVE Kairosoft but this seem fishy

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Um, what? You're suggesting Kairosoft can manipulate the backend that controls the counting and displaying of star ratings? Take off the tinfoil hat, please. It works perfectly on my Nexus 7. Five bucks says the guy is running a custom ROM.

      • DavidKeith

        I am just saying that that guy in the 2nd comment rated it a 2 star and the overall rating was 13 5-stars... custom rom or not that is very odd.

        and it wouldn't have been the first time a developer fakes the numbers..

        • Justin Cabreira

          I'm pretty sure it just takes a little while for the reviews to be added to that chart...

    Dyslexia got the best of me.
    I clicked on this article because I misread it as "Beastie Boys."
