Enter Monster Strike—it's the biggest mobile gaming phenomenon in Japan, dominating iTunes and Google Play since 2014. Collect and nurture your monsters and battle bosses with your friends—did you forget they were sitting right next to you? Be bored and vaguely distracted no more! Mobile gaming is supposed to be fun—so let's keep it that way.
