Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess review
Monsters (probably) stole my princess is a witty and addictive indie game. previously released for the PSP. So how does this humorous title fair as an Xbox LIVE Indie game?
The story of Monsters sees the Dukes princess go missing, one minute he's standing by his large organ (Piano), when all of a sudden he hears a sound and notices she's gone. The Duke then sets out on his quest to find and save her. At surface level this simple game appears to be very short indeed, In fact I managed to completed it within 20 minutes of picking it up. Yet it is the type of game that will see you going back from more, trying to obtain the elusive high score. Monsters is a platform game in the true sense, this game reminds me of the early Rayman games where you had to climb up onto platforms to escape the oncoming water. The whole idea of Monsters is to climb the platforms as fast as you can and hit the monster 3 times before he escapes at the top of the screen. Overall there are five bosses to defeat, each obviously becoming more difficult as you progress. Like I've said this is a short game, yet you must remember it's an Indie game and with awards to be collected and combo scores to beat, the perfectionists out there will love trying to complete this game 100 percent. Another advantage of the shortness of this game is the ability to play a quick boss battle in a spare 5 minutes. The quick pick up and play nature still plagues me, while the need to collect of gold and fill out the "scrapbook," to unlock a new boss also gives you all the incentive you need to go back and redo. In conclusion Monsters (probably) stole my princess is a funny platform jumping game with a few re-playability factors which should see you go back for more.
