Monster Tale :: Nintendo DS Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on May 22, 2011
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Monster Tale is a game for the Nintendo DS. This game lets you explore the world with your pet monster! You will find many different gameplay features in this monster of a game! Expect some awesomeness, but also be ready for a tough challenge!

Monster Tale contains a mix of many different game genres that work together to make a great game. You must platform your way back and forth across the world while leveling up your pet monster, taking care to raise it properly.

A Girl and her Monster

You play as Ellie, a blue haired girl with a pet monster named Chomp. As Ellie explores the game world, Chomp hovers near her and automatically attacks nearby enemies. Over time, Chomp will level up and eventually transform into different monsters that can use different attacks and abilities. The different transformations also have different elemental types, like water and fire, which are strong and weak against certain enemies and bosses.

Using the touch screen, you can control how Chomp grows by giving it food, books, and exercise equipment. This part of the game is very much like a pet sim, while the action on the upper screen is more like an action game or platformer. Ellie herself will learn new tricks as she explores the world. Eventually she can do things like wall jumps and laser shots from her magic bracelet.

A Monster of a Games

Monster Tale isn't a super long game, but it can feel like it sometimes. There are many times where you will reach the end of a level and will have to make your way back to where you came from in order to proceed with the story. These backtracking bits can get tedious, but they also give you a chance to train Chomp some more.

Chomp's transformations can be tricky to figure out and the game's hints don't really help at all. Monster Tale can also get pretty hard at some parts, where you might encounter way too many enemies or a really difficult series of jumps. Some of the bosses are super tough as well.

Overall, however, Monster Tale is an excellent game that is sure to satisfy. The art and graphics are pretty good and the many different kinds of gameplay elements really work well together and makes the game very interesting.
