Adventure. Battle. Transform!
An angry Traffikrab monster notices you and rushes against you when Kayleigh hands you the cassette player, you accept it with confusion and you are completely oblivious to what’s about to happen.
As you press play on the cassette player, a strange sensation and burst of energy surges through your veins. The transformation is a weird feeling, like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. You feel powerful, invincible, and ready to take on anything that comes your way.
Welcome to New Wirral and the world of Cassette Beasts, where you collect and transform into awesome monsters to use during turn-based battles in an open-world RPG adventure.
