Strong Early Reviews for Genre-Bending Game
EDISON, N.J., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Majesco Entertainment Company (Nasdaq: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today released Monster Tale for Nintendo DS™ to retailers nationwide. Developed by DreamRift, the key leads behind the critically acclaimed Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure, Monster Tale is a one-of-a-kind adventure that features an innovative mix of action platform gameplay on the top screen and a deep pet-raising game on the Touch Screen. Nintendo Power calls it “the next great DS game” and Game Informer included Monster Tale on its list of “The Most Anticipated Portable Games of 2011.”
The heroic characters in this intriguing tale are Ellie and her mysterious pet monster named Chomp who together set out to reclaim the Monster World from the Kid Kings and their enslaved creature pets. Players control both Ellie and Chomp as they explore and battle through five non-linear kingdoms in Monster World, including the Wicked Treehouse, Demon Express Train, Ancient Ruins and Monster Nightclub. The Touch Screen serves as Chomp’s Pet Sanctuary where he evolves with new abilities as he eats and plays with what Ellie provides from the top screen or buys for him in the store. But when Ellie needs some brute force or protective defense, she can summon Chomp to the top screen to back her up in her quest to save the Monster World. As Chomp develops and gains new attributes, he can grow into 30 unique forms with new attacks while also transforming into useful objects like shields, spikes and bombs. Together Ellie and Chomp will take on scores of baddies that threaten to end their Monster Tale mid-adventure.
Rated E for Everyone, Monster Tale for Nintendo DS is now available at retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $29.99. For additional information, please visit www.MonsterTaleGame.comand www.facebook.com/MonsterTale.
