Monster House: GBA Video Game Review

We review the spooky action of the Monster House video game for the Nintendo GBA!

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!?!

    How Would You Destroy Monster House?

    • Order it a thousand pizzas - death by greasy food!
    • Stick a garden hose in a window and flood it.
    • Smother it with toilet paper!
    • DJ's plan is the best!
