DemiKids: Dark (Shin Megami Tensei) version is a lot of fun. I think my favorite feature of the game is a tie between bullying other demons to join your party and fusing demons together.
Bullying - they call it recruiting, but when I can pull up a demon and select 'Recruit' and get the options of 'Forceful' and 'Threaten' as my 'recruiting' options... it's still fun. I just don't see how this game got an 'E' rating. Yeah, it's appropriate for everyone if you live in some alternate universe where your elementary school library has demon summoning books in it.
As a side note, my junior high school library did have demon summoning books in it. It was built on land seized from a witch.
The real fun part of recruiting demons is seeing who works with what, why, and how. Like my Inkubus, who gets a bonus on recruiting bad female demons, and usually gets slapped in the face by Angels and Cupids when he tries to recruit them. It's very funny.
My other favorite part is of course, squishing demons together to see what you get when you are done. I think the guy in the fusion lab is kidding, and he just has a stack of demons in the back that he whips out in exchange for whatever two demons you offer him. It's totally retarded.
Like, I give them three Relics and they give me a demon. Oooookay. I give them a bird and a yeti, and he offers me a giant bug. WTF? I give them a bird and a mini-icy demon, and he offers me a nightmare. Or maybe a windmare, I was just confused on how an ice spirit and a bird made a horse. Well, a demonic horse, anyway. Seriously, WTF?
It's still mad fun, yo.
And the best part is that if you don't like the combinations (or if you are actively frightened by some of the things they want to offer you) you can always just feed the extra demons to your guide.
