    Terrible, got through the entire campaign in less than 15 minutes. Score attack is extremely easy (dont double jump the enemy and jump on every platform). Character and level designs look good, but with every level its the same boss with a new skin. There are no obstacles in the game either, its you and the monster. The games not even funny, i chuckled at the title but having him repeatTerrible, got through the entire campaign in less than 15 minutes.

There are 12 awards and 8 collectibles in the scrapbook (might provide a bit of humor) but its a really small package. Don't expect a full game, but a 10 dollar mini game. Be very cautious when purchasing. Expand

    A truly great indie game, full of style and humor (almost like a point and click cartoon). Veteran adventure gamers will burn through it in 2 or 3 hours (some parts will still be fairly maddening), but anyone else might take days to work through it all, short as it is. Still, for 10 dollars it's quite worth it. I can only hope the sequel is a bit longer!

  1. Overall, the game is a fairly fun little ride thanks to its variety of gameplay and nicely designed cartoonish environments, but the puzzles are often too simple, making for a very short game.

    Becomes obscure and irritating. [July 2010, p.54]

    Brimming with character and a knowing wit, Monsters is almost an essential purchase. With a focused appeal, and an immediate, addictive set of mechanics, this is (probably) the best PSP Mini game to date.
