Mail Order Monsters is a 1985 computer game created by Paul Reiche III, Evan Robinson and Nicky Robinson and published by Electronic Arts (Ariolasoft in Europe) for the Commodore 64 and Atari 8-bit family home computers.
Reiche had previously worked with designers Jon Freeman and Anne Westfall of Free Fall Associates on the game Archon for EA, and teamed with the Robinsons on action-strategy games. Mail Order Monsters features battles as part of the gameplay.
The game provided a way for players to create a variety of monsters and equip them with futuristic and modern weapons to do battle. The game allowed two players to play and compete at the same time and fight each other, or to play capture the flag. Monsters could be stored on diskette and could be upgraded by victories against other monsters or computer opponents.
