Summary: When I first heard of this game in GameInformer they described it as Metroid with Pokemon. Now that I've played it I can't say that I agree. Monster Tale is a Metroidvania where you travel with a little monster guy that attacks enemies.
Summary: This game is awesome. I popped it in during a 12-hour flight and couldn't put it down. It's basically a clone of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night in terms of having a map of worlds that you are constantly working to unlock. The animation of your heroine is amazingly smooth and tight.
Summary: DS games are plentiful as fish in an ocean, but sometimes you wanna find something you don't normally see. Not to say that Monster Tale is out of the norm as a game, but i hardly doubt a lot of people have seen or heard of this ( unless you lounge around on the internet all day).
Summary: A very fun metroidvania that can appeal to both kids and adults. My only complaint is you go through an entire section of the game map only to have to run all the way back there after picking up a certain item or gaining a certain skill.
