Some customer reviews of Catcha Beast! - Blue

Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser Mum with 2 boys

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Children get a sense of achievement when they capture beasts. They can sell, trade or exchange their beasts for virtual goods or gold. More than just a handheld computer game - children must move around to find beasts and then have a virtual battle when they hit the beast - patience and strategic thinking required.
Bad points:
To capture beasts you need to spin around - children are not always aware of their surroundings and can bump into or fall over things. The beasts can appear anytime day or night and there is no "off" switch..

Good points:
Gave a pair of Catcha Beasts to my grandson for Christmas and he's played with them continuouosly ever since. Only stopped when the batteries died out. By all accounts it was the best idea yet for a Christmas gift.
Bad points:
Need to maintain a steady supply of batteries!!

The concept is a great idea.
Bad points:
It never stops. The alarm rings on the hour a number of times during the day, this gets annoying.

Confirmed purchaser Internet shopper

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
My son enjoys trying to ctach the beasts that wander around our house and then train them. It keeps hime amused for a good long while on and off.
Bad points:
It does not seem to be possible to switch the game off, so we often get a ringing noise when a beast is close even in the middle of the night. I have had to leave the game in the living room or kitchen where no one can hear it at night.

Sarah, London Single mum of 1boy

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Well made, good fun, unusual design
Bad points:
Quite hard to see unless you get angles right, difficult to understand and work out what you're meant to do, should probably be aimed at older children
