An amazing Indie gamedomenthechief | Aug. 9, 2013 | See all domenthechief's reviews »
Monster Men is an amazing 2D-plaftorm Indie game riddled with various puzzles. The game's storyline focuses on four monster-looking fellas - Borris (the leader), Wesley, Philip and Petri who were imprisoned by evil monster Hector in an - as the developers said - Underground Prison of a Castle at the top of Mount Death! Pretty cool, huh?
But your prison-break is going to be far from easy. Seriously, the game is hard to play and only masters of keyboard are experienced enough to beat the game that features dozens of levels and epic boss fights!
The graphics are old school, and so is gameplay. And I'd be lying if I said I hated that. Monster Men, with its witty gameplay and demanding difficulty, reminded me of those old school 2D-platform games we used to love. Soundtrack is "old-schoolish", too and I just love it! It is so fun to listen to it while playing the game.
In the conclusion I'd like to say that I really enjoyed playing the game. It is original, since the developer mixed action with puzzle genre perfectly, and I recommend it to all people who still feel the need to play old school games, because seriously, this game will take you back in time!
