As someone who did not attend his own prom, something about Monster Prom just clicked and made me really invested into learning more about these monster young adults and their fates before the big dance. I found myself immediately starting a new session after a rejection in hopes of finally getting the monster of my dreams to finally say yes. The sheer amount of events and possible outcomes meant it would be hard for me to get bored.
It has a lot of fun, it´s my first experience with a dating sim so i didn't had great expectations about but it came really great to myself, the story is quite fun and so ridiculous that makes you want to keep looking for all the events and endings that contains. The characters are way too memorable and amazing, also they are well written and designed.
Is surely one of my best purchases tbh
It fares a bit better as a multiplayer game than a single-player one, a standalone entry in a genre that is not known for catering to that demographic. For the lone Casanova, it is still most certainly worth giving a go, so long as you’re aware of its limitations going in.
As a singleplayer title, it seems to offer a wealth of content — the stories have a quirky kind of charm and each scenario has four possible outcomes, with a total of over twenty endings possible. Of course, playing with rivals adds a replay value of its own, but after a little time spent with it, I came away feeling that Monster Prom is only functional at best — despite the wealth of options, the scenarios become predictable and tired quickly. Even so, a group of friends turns it into a delightfully messy romp of the kind that my younger self would have loved, minus the cocaine.
Monster Prom had so much potential and so much to offer that I couldn't wait to tear into it. And on a superficial level, it's an interesting experiment that I thought I would love. Unfortunately, just like the monsters you're courting, once you get to know it it's only a great-looking shell with some fairly rotten insides.
A delightfully fun game where pop culture references and sexy jokes are the norm are just my cup of tea. This new spin to dating sims that gladly pokes fun at everything under the sun is a great way to spend your time. Me and my friends killed an afternoon playing it together and just laughing all the way through as one of them just fell in love with Miranda. It takes a while for you to learn how to actually play the game, but the exploration for secret endings is worth it.
Review só pra lembrar a nota que dei pro jogo:
O jogo em si é uma boa utilização do gênero "dating sim", com seus personagens incríveis e diálogos melhores ainda, mas eu não gosto do sistema de escolha ser baseado em atributos serem maiores ou menores que outro e algumas escolhas não tendo muito ah ver com seus atributos.
Pros: Original game idea and stylish images.
Reading based gameplay.
Lack of character animation (they should really consider using 3D models for the 2nd part, they plan to release in 2020)
Lack of interaction between players (in multiplayer game) - you need some time and effort to experiment before you could find interesting way of playing this game.
Most of the time reading the whole dialogues doesn't give you a clue for the right answer.
Monster Prom has one major positive going for it but it is hampered by one equally major negative. The humour is some of the best I have ever seen in a game. I loved the dialogue; the choices; and the events that happen in game. What I couldn’t stand was the randomness of the game. I have done two play throughs of the game and tried to romance a different character each time and each time got rejected even though many of my interactions with that character were positive leading up to prom and I had high stats in areas they liked. The game does a very poor job letting you know where you stand with potential dates. Most of what I know about where to find them or what they like had to be guessed based on what little info you’re given and even then didn’t make sense with some of the reactions you get. It all seemed so random each time I played and not in a fun way. The art was great. The music and sound effects were all right but nothing special.
I played Monster Prom on Linux. It never crashed on me and I didn’t notice any spelling issues or bugs. There were no graphics options. Alt-Tab didn’t work. There was no save system at all. Each play through is pretty quick but this is still a terrible option for a game with as many choices as you make.

Overall my love for what Monster Prom did right was nowhere near my hate for what I didn’t like about it. I paid $5.39 CAD for it and while that is a fine price for the amount of content and replayability it didn’t make the game more enjoyable.
My Score: 4.5/10
