MinoMonsters has passed 1.5m players, just three months after developers radically overhauled the title’s gameplay.

In a particularly brave / foolish move, version 2.0 of MinoMonsters did away with the game’s previous focus on exploring worlds and performing quests to concentrate on its battles. Evidently, this has paid off, with TechCrunch reporting that the game now has 1.5m players, up from 600,000 raw downloads in June. It is also seeing increased play times.

To celebrate the milestone, MinoMonsters has revealed it has also secured some new funding, although it is not saying how much because it apparently wasn’t very notable.  Oh well.
