I wasn't sure what to expect when trying this game. I hadn't played any of the author's previous works.

(Spoiler - click to show)My only regret with the way I had played the game was that I had not built up my cryptids a bit more for the final showdown. I just barely won, and an all-out annihilation would have been most satisfying.
This is interesting -- on my first playthrough I spent a lot of time levelling monsters up, and worried that I hadn't done enough, but then won without even fielding a L3 monster -- I think the final blow was landed by a L2 Behinder. And in the second playthrough Ukilicoz was defeated by a L1 triceratops. (Though that took about a hundred rounds of combat.) I suspected, though I haven't tested this, that it's possible to win with cryptids totally fresh from the vat if you just have enough of them, particularly the ones that start out quite strong.
I suppose the trick is that the game doesn't spend much time signalling what an appropriate level of training/cryptid-creation might be?
