When a game is a raving success like Pocket God, it’s only natural that competitors would develop similar games (although I’m not sure Pocket God is a game, it’s more a sadistic fantasy).
Pocket Devil wanders close to the original premise but stays far enough away to prevent litigation. The Christmas edition has more Santa in it, but stays pretty close to the non-Christmas version.
The premise is that you are the Devil and you’re torturing denizens of Hell (although they look kind of cute and somewhat reminiscent of the islanders on Pocket God). There are some variations from its competitor, such as the inclusion of a female devil to tempt the men.
Unlike Pocket God, there is actual blood in this game. Pocket God has characters that get eaten by ants, turned into zombies or vampires and burned to death by lightning or intense heat, but there is no blood. With Pocket Devil, you can impale the devils on spikes or cut their heads off. You can even try and summon more creatures. The closest thing to benevolence that you can do to them is turn them into angels to send to Heaven.
Pocket Devil is a lot of fun particularly for those who feel that Pocket God is not gruesome enough. However, what Pocket Devil seems to lack, is the additions that come free with each update that Pocket God has. While torturing and maiming can get you so far, there comes a point where one becomes bored with it.
Overall Pocket Devil is a fun investment.
Would I Buy Again:Most likely.
Who Is It For:The sick and twisted.
What I Like:That it's sick and twisted.
What I Don't Like:Could use changes over time to keep it interesting.
Final Statement:If you're more Halloween than Christmas, this is the app for you.
