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

Destructoid
29 June 2011
  • 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.

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.

Monster Tale

Thunderbolt Games
2 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Somewhat hot off the heels of Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, the developers at Dreamrift have teamed up with Majesco to bring us a new side-scrolling adventure. Monster Tale fuses Metroidvania elements with monster evolution to offer Nintendo DS owners a unique title that helps cap the system’s life cycle off nicely. In Monster Tale, you’ll take on the role of young female protagonist Ellie who stumbles upon a secret world inhabited by monsters.

Nintendo World Report
11 February 2011
  • Summary: It may not have golden pantaloons or 255 missiles, but this action-packed take on the Metroid formula is still worth your while.
  • Pros: Chomp's leveling system consistently offers interesting new abilities, Clever boss battles, Exquisite soundtrack pays homage to Castlevania, Satisfying combat that requires strategy
  • Cons: Chomp's level-ups interrupt the flow of battle, Ellie's uninventive, incremental upgrades, Excessive backtracking, Overly guided experience with limited exploration

Monster Tale

11 July 2011
  • Excerpt: En grupp bestånde av elaka kungabarn har tagit över världen och de en gång så fridfulla monstervarelserna har blvit förslavade. Snorungarna använder monstren som sina hantlangare för att skapa förödelse och begå onda gärningar, men det finns hopp. När den lilla flickan Ellie anländer till den hemliga världen stöter hon på en mystisk varelse som hon döper till Chomp, och tillsammans tar de sig an det monsterbefolkade landet för att ställa allt tillrätta och bekämpa de...

Uma das últimas boas aventuras do DS

Tech Tudo
28 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Todos os defeitos citados são muito pequenos dentro da grande obra. Mesmo depois de terminá-lo você ainda sentirá vontade de jogar, o que pode ocasionar em uma nova partida ou uma busca por todas as formas e habilidades de Chomp, mas não há grandes extras planejados após as quase oito horas de jogo, o que é bastante para um título portátil.
  • Pros: Aventura de montão
  • Cons: Som deixa a desejar
