    What makes my game unique?

    The "Monster Buster" game idea was born from a desire to extend a monster fighting experience and merge it with the real world by using Tag of Joy's previous experience in using augmented reality. The first prototype was built in a hackaton over the weekend in 2012 and extended to fully working game over the following years. It is worth noting, that the game idea and prototype were developed before "Pokemon GO" was announced and event before Google made 2014 "Google Maps Pokémon Challenge" April Fools' Day video! "Monster Buster" is an RPG game in real world – go outside, explore your surroundings, find monsters and chests, fight them, craft items and uncover the monster invasion!
