Plot

The storyline involves many colourful characters, monsters and robots, those of which lived side by side in general disharmony. Completely unable to work as a team, in fact “work” and “team” weren't in the monster’s vocabulary so the monsters roamed free within their habitats and occasionally risked being painfully dismembered by other monster species if they strayed too far from home – and this was the way of the monsters and so life went on, until a small and mysterious do-gooding alien life form arrived.

This lifeform was to be known as The Maker. The Maker was responsible for making many things, more specifically he made Robots. The Maker’s own Planet was dying and his fellow species were doing nothing about it, seeing the inevitable destruction-the Maker planned his escape.

After crash-landing on the Monster’s Planet he made himself a home, and because he was alone, facing a planet populated by Monsters, he created a Central Processing Unit ‘chip’ and implanted it into a Robot companion, following that, he continued to make more of the chips to accommodate those particular robots.The Maker created the Robots with a belief that they would assist him, and also help maintain and improve the environment of the Monsters, not to mention provide some form of order and structure for the world. Unfortunatley, the idea went horribly wrong once the Maker had enabled the Robots to construct other units, following that, the Robots then rejected their Maker as it became clear he served no purpose.The Robots continued to build and evolve their own civilisation, the chip has been passed from CPU to CPU that has now become outdated and damaged causing the robots to behave more erratically and harm the creatures they were originally designed to co-habit with. And so The Maker has become increasingly weary and fearful of his own original creation.The Maker now lives a solitary existence hiding in self-imposed exile. He did however once save a small Biguana monster from the jaws of a Blind Polar Dog and made him a Robot tail to replace his half eaten one knowing that for Biguanas balance is very important to their survival.It is now clear that The Maker feels responsible for The Robots behaviour and now fears he can no longer control their actions..

Gameplay

Monsteca Corral is in a third person strategy format. Within the game there are a total of 9 different environmental habitats;

Lifeforms do not live just anywhere on the surface of a planet randomly. In fact the opposite, each species occupies a definite set of surroundings, or environment, to which it is adapted; it cannot survive for long outside the limits of that environment because it can no longer obtain what it requires to survive.

Habitats of some species may be very specific, Coral for example, are very picky about their surroundings and prefer water of a particular temperature, and chemistry. Other lifeforms such as Rats (and Humans) can survive in pretty much any environment. Different species occupy the different habitats, so knowing the habitats will help you find particular creatures. Keeping a creature in it’s preferred Habitat (or in conditions that re-produce it) will be beneficial to it’s well-being and health. Lifeforms will have their habitat indicated in the encyclopedia so players will know where they might find them.

During gameplay, players will have the opportunity to obtain different accomplishments such as; a successfully captured monster, a valuable/useful item, new robot parts or tools to improve an existing collection or currency to buy more items.

Characters

The game features a range of characters, 9 in total;

Astro Maggot- Astro Maggots are large, flying herbivorous larva. They can be found resting in all levels.Once an Astro Maggot has been awoken, there will be a (specific length) timed response before it becomes impossible for the Herder to get their Sdompe aboard.

C.P.U- CPU (Central Processing Unit) also referred to as 'the Boss of the robots'. The Robots have succeeded in line through the passing of the ‘chip.’ The C.P.U controls all of the robots but he is gradually experiencing more breakdowns/crashes, glitches etc. mainly in his logic and understanding of functions.The present C.P.U is not a particularly nice C.P.U. He proved incompatible with his unit partner and she left him with a 2nd unit daughter who he struggles to relate to-due to her caring unrobotlike nature. The Present C.P.U is responsible for the current anti-monster regime which he believes will advance robitilisation. He has now begun to ‘clean up’ monster populated ‘trouble spots.’

Heavy Bot- Heavy Bots are the security guards of the robot community. They are large Biped Robots and they have a significant amount of strength. Following a sentry Bot zapping, they will pick up stunned Sdompe and take them to monster ‘cages’.If the Sdompe have not been rescued by their herd. This will be a timed action trigger function. Heavy Bots will appear in levels to add difficulty to gameplay.

Hovership- The Hovership is a medium-sized transport ship with vertical take-off and landing facilities. The hovership is mainly used for deployment and retrieval of other robot units. The ship retrieves robots from lakes and goop swamps by lowering down a bungee style ‘mucus rope’. They are equipped with a winch to airlift cargo.

Imposter-Bot- Herds of Sdompe are often pursued by Imposter Bots. Imposter Bots will merrily follow a herd, cunningly infiltrate and then disperse it.Imposter Bots disguise themselves in an unconvincing way as a Sdompe who then infiltrate the herd before startling active Sdompe and scattering them across the terrain.

Lifterbot- Large powerful units with fork-lifts for hands-equipped with lights to work in darkness of the deep freight halls of the city underground. The lifterbot is generally designed to move and transport cargo, however, more recently the CPU has decided to make them useful in an alternative manner, to seek and transfer back wild or escaped monsters.

Sdompe- Sdompes are a migratory Herbivore that live in southern scrubland areas in summer,they then cross the mountains to northern Wetlands to spend the winter. They enjoy being in wide open ground with small shrubs and fruits to graze on, though also spend time close to the forest edges where they can be sure to get a good variety of food and nourishment. A herd of Sdompe can be significantly large and have been seen to overgraze areas and can be quite destructive in groups of 7 or more.

Sentry Walker- Bipedal Walker Bot: Programmed mainly for reconnaissance and sentryduties. Sentry Bots can be found in all levels. They will only fulfill predetermined tasks and have no AI capability but its programming makes it aggressive in combat.The Sentry Bot has a good range and speed in open areas and will zap and immobilise individual Sdompe,-freeze stunning them for a 2 secs period.Sentry Bots can be stomped by herds of Sdompe and can be pushed into lakes/goop swamps where they will sink and need rescue.

Swamp Strider-Very large herbivores, not known for their physical attractiveness or their winning personalities.They do however eat the majority of any vegetation and can cause a lot of damage to crops or forested area. They use their long arms and legs to negotiate wet and unstable terrain and also to dig up roots.They can also wield a healthy kick to robot or Sdompe if startled.
