  • Summary: Prepare yourself for a world that's rife with evil demons, special powers, and magic spells. Jin (the main character of Light Version), Akira (the main character of Dark Version), and Lena have accidentally released demonic creatures, and now it's up to you to capture them all. Follow these characters as they collect more than 350 demons, and unlock demons from other versions of the game. The Demon Fusion system lets you create new demons or strengthen existing ones. You can also link two Game Boy Advances to enhance your assortment of demon allies. Expand

  1. DemiKids (both Light and Dark versions) are what the last Pokemon entires should have been... If you have any affinity for the GBA Pokemon games, DemiKids is a must-buy. [Sept 2003, p.126]
  2. 70
    The game’s storyline and Demon collecting aspect more than make up for these SNES shortcomings, providing gamers with an entertaining, albeit dark RPG.
  3. DemiKids doesn't stack up all that well against Nintendo's "Pokémon" games in terms of variety, fun, or overall cohesiveness, but it is decent enough to provide most players with a healthy 10 to 20 hours of play time.
  4. 60
    This is a hard game. Despite the intended juvenile audience, keeping your demons alive through even a single battle can sometimes be a real struggle.
  5. DemiKids has a finer pedigree than most, but the rest of us are still waiting for these things to grow a spine. A curiosity at best. [Nov 2003, p.91]
  6. 55
    Because the quest is extensive with plenty of levelling up opportunities, folks who really dig the wander-around-until-a-random-battle-occurs Japanese RPG gameplay will probably be able to swallow the game design of DemiKids.
  7. So much of this game is derived from Pokemon that it's shameless.

    In all realism, although a terrific game, it lacks some of the more user-friendly aspects of Pokemon, Demikids is a challenging RPG for Hardcore gamers, but if you do not like RPGS, or are not a Die-Hard gamer, Pass this one by. Expand

    This game is horrible and makes pong look like The greatest RPG ever. I mean when will these poor fools learn that the pokemon fad died years ago, and now all those kids that played pokemon are dead due to frequently being beat up, by everyone. Collapse
