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.
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.
