Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom – Review

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is the game by the creators of Wonder Boy, and it is absolutely delightful. You play as Jin, and go about a 2D world, platforming your way across gorgeously hand drawn levels. The hand drawn art is really pretty, and there’s a good variety to the world and the monsters. You have a bunch of abilities, and you’ll have to mix them up with items to solve various puzzles and make your way across obstacles.

The gameplay is also really satisfying, and offers a great challenge, keeping you on your toes. Exploration is also rewarding with tons of secrets hidden away, waiting to be discovered. The story falls a bit flat, but it’s barely noticeable when you are going across this gorgeous world.

Pros: Looks beautiful Solid gameplay Tons of variety Lots of abilities, items and transformations to use

Cons: Dull story

Score – 8/10


Enjoy a colorful action-adventure game made alongside Ryuichi Nishizawa, creator of the original Wonder Boy in Monster World series. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom borrows the best from the classic series to deliver a fresh, modern adventure with fun gameplay, memorable music and gorgeous hand drawn animations.
