Rimworld is a game that is hard to define as many would tell you it is a colony builder, war crime simulator or a simple base builder game but it is none of them – it is a storytelling game where you are playing it more to see how it ends and to help guide to an outcome you want while the storyteller does everything it can to fuck you over.
So much of this review is going to be based around the gameplay section and replayability so with that said let’s not waste any more time.
Ah, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom a game with a title that seems so out of place yet is the latest sequel of the Monster World series. I have recorded this series for Playing Games with Snat and I figured it was time to do a review on it. I am going to be talking about the version on the Playstation where the footage and screenshots have been taken and I am not going to talk about the fact this game is a rebranded Flying Hamster II – I am going to review it for the game it is.
The story, just like the whole of the Wonder Boy series, is very simple. You are a boy called Jin (no picking male or female in this game, something I will say is a shame nowadays) whose uncle Nabu seems to be drunk transforming everyone in the kingdom into animals – including Jin’s brother Zeke into a cute dragon.
With this in mind, Jin sets out to find out what has happened to his uncle, find out what the heck is going on and sort it out like the heroes before him.
