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). Monster Tale is a hybrid game with a medium pace Mega Man-esque platforming and exploration in the way of Castlevania (these are just the mechanics).
Summary: The Good: *Great for old-school platformer fans *Fun characters *You get lots of power-ups so the game rewards you as you progress. *Catchy music overall *Good game for all ages The Bad: *Wow, you really have to back-track a lot in this game. It's as my friend would say back home "ridunkulous." You literally will run across the map to get a power-up & then have to back-track all the way to the other side of the map again.
Summary: I bought my daughter (elementary school age) a 3DS and loved it so much that I went back and bought one for myself (definitely not elementary school age). Monster Tale is one of the few games that I find myself reaching for continually. In fact, she and I each have our own games and then share/trade - Monster Tale is one that we both like to play and the only one that we have to be careful in sharing - to be sure that it's "our turn".
Summary: Monster Tale tells the story of a young girl named Ellie who, along with her monster companion:Chomp, must stop the evil kid-kings from taking over Monster World completely. As you might have guessed from other reviews here, Monster Tale is a game quite like Metroid or Castlevania in which you explore levels. While that is appealing, that really isn't what interested me in the game.
Summary: I've been greatly surprised by this title that will sadly and probably stay underplayed and underrecognised. It's a nice platformer of the "metroidvania" style, where you gradually progress in an open envirronements. The new abilities your monster is develloping to help you are really nice and makes the progression interesting. The 2D is beautiful and there's an excellent soundtrack for the sugar coating on top.
Summary: I bought this game for my daughter. You can be several characters, including the little bear, a fox, a walrus and maybe some others. Once you pick your character, you just kinda wander around the ice and water, keeping away from the "bad guys." It's a cute game, easy for my 6yr old to play - she loved the little animals, you can switch at any time, by going into a cave, even in the middle of the game.
