Monster House: GBA Video Game Review

Twelve year-old DJ Walters lives across the street from a house that's more than just scary - it's a kid-eating monster! He and his buddy Chowder realize they have to stop it before it starts gobbling up trick-or-treaters like candy so they come up with a plan that goes totally wrong cuz the house swallows them, and Jenny, alive! Now they need your help to stop the house and get out in one, non-chewed-up piece in the Monster House video game for the Nintendo Gameboy! We review this movie-based video game here.

Three Kids vs. One Monster House on the GBA

This game puts you in control of DJ, Jenny and Chowder as they battle living furniture with squirt-guns, solve puzzles with their special abilities, collect items and try to stop the house! Each kid has a different squirt-gun attack, different abilities to help them get around and you can swap from one kid to the next easily.

Each kid has their own cool powers, the action is fast, the battles are cool, the puzzles are interesting and you can give Skull (their video game geek buddy) a shout on the walkie-talkie if you get stumped. All this adds up to make the Monster House game really fun! Plus, the house looks really creepy and the monsters are wicked.

Creepy Monsters and Scaredy Kids on the GBA

The biggest bummer about Monster House for the GBA is that if you've seen the movie then you know what's going to happen. It's also kind of strange to see a Halloween-ish game (and movie!) come out in the middle of summer.

The Monster House vs. The Kidz - Who Wins?

It's a total victory for the kids, and for anyone who plays this game! The action is good and the puzzles are challenging but it's still easy for anyone to play. It's a really fun game that's better if you're a fan of the movie, even if you know what's going to happen next.

Monster House Thumbs Up:

  • Squirt guns vs. monsters - wheee!
  • Puzzle solving and action in the same game.
  • Control all three kids, each with different powers!
  • Easy to play and lots of fun.
  • Monster House Thumbs Down:

  • If you've seen the movie, you know what's happening.
  • A Halloween-ish game, in the middle of summer?
  • Chowder? Who named this poor kid!?!

    • Smother it with toilet paper!

    What you’re refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/LInux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

    No they shouldn't be allowed to play video games.  The best thing for women to do is to go out and settle down with a nice dindu as soon as they reach the age of 18.
