Monster Party

Hello obscure platforming. Back in 1989, Monster Party was released by Bandai for the NES, and had gained recognition has bizarre, grotesque game. Does that fact make this game bad? Far from it. Let's analyze the bits and pieces of this game, to learn what makes it so... out there.

====================

====================

-----Story-----

The plot of Monster Party is pretty generic. A regular person gets asked to help another character save his home. In this case, we have Mark, a child walking home from a baseball game, being asked by a gargoyle-like creature, named Bert, to help save his home, the Dark World.
So Mark is taken to the bizarre Dark World, using his baseball bat to help fight of the Demons and monsters all around the Dark World.

-----Graphics-----

The graphics are really what give this game its dark atmosphere.



Aren't those graphics neat?

Spoiler

Oh, hello there.
The graphics are a high-point in this game, managing to be creepy, and detailed, given the small graphic capabilities of the NES. The dark atmosphere of this game really shows in the just the graphics, which is pretty good for an 8-bit console game.

-----sound-----

Nothing much to report on in the sound department. The sounds are what you would expect from the NES, basic, but fitting.

The music is pretty cool though, really taking the atmosphere and extending it, drawing you in more and more.

The music fits the levels, and makes them unique.

-----gameplay-----

The Gameplay in Monster Party is very well done. Mark is given a baseball bat that he can use to beat enemies with, or to reflect projectiles. Mark is also able to jump around, or call upon Bert for help if needed. The controls are fairly basic and easy to learn, and don't make the game any more difficult than it needs to be.

====================

All-in-all, Monster Party is an obscure game, that manages to retain a fun platformer feel to it, and stands out among the NES crowd of games.
You should definitely look into this game.

Alice gives Monster Party an 9/10

Good review. Dunno if it looks like my type of game (not really into creepier games), but it does seem cool, at least.
