Monster Tale (DS)


It's a difficult market out there for original game intellectual properties, especially those by smaller developers and publishers that don't get a big advertising push. So it's something of a small miracle that a game like Monster Tale even came to...

Monster Tale Review


A mind-bending, genre-blending combination of platforming and pet simulation. With some Metroid in there. And Pokemon. And Castlevania. And Mega Man.

Even with those imperfections in place, though, I have to highly recommend Monster Tale for every DS owner to seriously consider purchasing – for a younger gamer, sure, but also for yourself. This is a game that has clearly been crafted with love and...

Monster Tale Review


Be sure to check out this charming adventure before you retire your aging DS.

One of the best parts of owning a successful console is that erratic trickle of easily overlooked gems you see at the very tail end of its life. Games like Drill Dozer, Arc the Lad Collection, and Persona 4, for example: latecomers whose task was to...

Review: Monster Tale for DS


After spending two hours with Monster Tale, I began affectionately thinking of it as "My First Metroidvania." DreamRift, creators of Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, have crafted another delightful DS mash-up that blends a side-scrolling...

Bright, colorful and detailed graphics, cute premise, simple controls, Chomp has lots of evolved forms to reach, once an evolution has been unlocked you can swap to it at any time, Chomp is quite customizable, Ellie is formidable on her own even when...

No teleportation system so you have to do a lot of backtracking through levels and Chomp automatically starts interacting with items in his sanctuary when he’s down there

Monster Tale review


Innovative 2D platformers are pretty rare to come by these days. The Nintendo DS has been a reprieve for those looking for these types of games. From New Super Mario Bros. to Kirby Canvas Curse, the Nintendo DS has a long history of quality...

At a time when gamers are transitioning to the 3DS, Majesco has released a high quality platformer. This unique take on the genre, which blends with other franchises from various genres, is a charming title. It probably will not receive the attention...

Monster Tale- NDS


Despite its flaws, Monster Tale is a great little adventure. While it may seem like a disposable kiddie game at a quick cover glance, players who go beneath the surface will discover a fun, engaging action game with an endearing aesthetic and some...

Monster Tale- NDS


Late life-cycle arrivals like Monster Tale -- Kirby's Adventure and the original Shantae, for example -- have a tendency to go overlooked in their time. Monster Tale is absolutely worthy to stand aside those classics. Hopefully, though, gamers will...
