Monster Tale

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: It has been a long time since we have heard much about Monster Tale. I saw this game at E3 in the year of our Lord 2010. I hate to admit it, but I had almost forgotten about this Nintendo DS game. So I am very thankful that Majesco Entertainment sent Family Friendly Gaming a reviewable copy. I hope to relay that in this hand held review.

Monster Tale

  • Summary: You may recollect back in January we brought you a preview of a cute little platformer coming soon from Majesco called Monster Tale . A sweet title with distinctly retro flavor, Monster Tale used some cool tricks to keep us exploring Metroidvania-style, a cute sidekick to ward off loneliness, and a happy soundtrack to keep us tapping our feet. If the read the preview, you know we dug it -- and that we wanted more.

Fun, imaginative mash-up of action game and pet sim.

Common Sense Media
28 June 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Monster Tale is a platforming action adventure in which a young girl and her pet monster will fight off enemy creatures with both melee and physical attacks. The fighting is cartoony and not at all graphic. There's also a significant pet-raising element, as Ellie must feed and care for her pet creature at the same time as she continues venturing through Monster World to find her way home.

Monster Tale (DS) - Review

VGChartz
13 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Monster Tale is doubtless an ode to 8 & 16 bit games. In this package you'll find gameplay elements from titles that defined a whole era of videogames. The best is that it does it while simultaneously filling you with both a sense of nostalgia and freshness. The developers of Monster Tale at DreamRift did an excellent job creating an experience that despite blatantly grabbing elements from several sources still manages to project a very unique personality and charisma.

NDS Review - 'Monster Tale'

WorthPlaying
15 April 2011
  • Summary: Monster Tale mixes platform gameplay on the top screen with a deep pet-raising game on the touch-screen to create a dynamic, one-of-a-kind adventure. The heroes of this intriguing tale are little Ellie and a mysterious young monster named Chomp, who set out together to reclaim the Monster World from the Kid Kings and their enslaved creature pets.
