Review: Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess

Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess by Mediatonics is a combo-based vertically scrolling platformer, which is fast and frantic, but fun all at the same time. When I was initially asked to review this crazy game, I have to admit I was slightly sceptical, so please sit back, relax and hear my thoughts on the very popular Indie Game, which proves that anything is possible.


When I loaded up Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess I took on the role of Duke, now Duke is a little vampire who is on a mission, and like most men, he just wants his fair maiden back, the princess. But to get his princess Duke has to discover which monster it was that actually stole herin the first place, and in order to do this, the Duke has to fight his way literally to the top. Which may seem easy for the first 2 levels, but when you get further up to the last level, which is only five may I add, the game does get harder, and alot more frustrating.

Now when you are ready to start the game, you are met by a monster, which is moving up the side of the screen and all you have to do is catch it and hit it three times. Sound easy? Well dont be fooled, this is alot harder than what it seems, there are many obstacles in Dukes way of reaching the monster. The Duke moves quite well, considering you only really need to learn how to make him jump, and when you have mastered that, the obstacles become not only easier, but also an asset to the game, each time the Duke lands on a platform it will increase his combo level, so the higher your combo level the more the game allows Duke to jump not only higher, but with alot more flair.

The graphical style of the game is top quality, it has a polished cartoon look to it, which im sure will appeal to all gamers, and the character design really brings a lot to the game too, the menus are easy to look through allowing a quick and easy navigation between them with only a few short loading times between cut scenes.

Now just as you are getting into this crazy game, and starting to really enjoy the concept of it, you suddenly realize that you are slightly addicted, so playing it even more doesn’t really become an option to you, but you have played the game now multiple times, and you have finally reached level five, and yes at this point, you do start becoming slightly disappointed with the game, especially after paying a whopping 240 Microsoft Points for it, so you would expect the game to have just that little bit more.

So how do I rate Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess? Well when I first started playing the game, and I could’nt get past the third level, I would have rated the game 7/10, but when I mastered it and reached the end very quickly, my rating dropped to a mere 5/10. This game is way to short, which in my opinion is a shame, because there is so much room for improvement, and longer levels and more of them, would be a great place to start.
