One Paragraph Review: Monster Tale

by Brad Gallaway

A fantastic, kid-friendly bit of metroidvania (minus the Metroid and the ‘vania), Monster Tale’s beautifully animated sprites, colorful world, and pleasantly-familiar gameplay are proof positive that a third dimension is not required to produce delicious gameplay. Take one ass-kicking little girl, add a mega-morphing creature sidekick, and add brilliant use of the DS’s second screen. Shake well (don’t stir) and enjoy.
