    Monster Boy And The Cursed Kingdom

    In fact if you are 50-60% through, then you are about to come to the hardest, and probably the best level in the game. The design is almost Zelda like, with puzzles spanning accross several rooms. I have 97% of the map now, its very rare that I have the time or desire to fully complete a game, but I will be going for it on this

    It gets much harder. This is partly because the more forms you have, the more options there are to solve a puzzle, and it isnt always obvious what to do. The more platform based sections also get more challenging. It can border on frustrating at times too, especially when you die and only have a few hearts to keep repeating a section with. The bosses dont get harder, if anything they get easier.

    I think this will get an Edge 9. I would be very surprised if it got less than an 8.

    I have opened up about 85% of the map now, and can safely say this is far, far better than the Dragons Trap. It gets better and better. The level design is excellent and you often have to use all of your forms to progress.

    It gets better and better, it really does. Bear in mind the last two forms are where it really opens up

    Im going to upgrade my verdict on this to “excellent”. Ive been playing about 5 or 6 hours, and the map says 34.3%, so this is not a short game. I have got three forms now and it has really opened up. Lots of secrets, lots of hidden paths and lots to do. The weapons and armour can be customised, which I wasnt expecting. Some of the level design is really good, and you normally have to switch between forms quite regularly. Im going back in

    Am I the only one playing this? The game has opened up a bit now, and it is both very much like the Dragons Trap, and also nothing like it at all. The game is much, much more puzzly now. I have three forms, and some of the puzzles involve switching between all three forms and using all your abilities. The puzzles are great fun! There are environmental puzzles and full screen puzzles in almost every room now, so it is very different to Dragons Trap in this regard. The bosses are also fun, and can also involve using multiple abilities. It still feels quite linear, as there only seems to be one path to follow. There are definitely things hidden in old areas, once you have new abilities, but it seems to be mainly just item pick ups, rather than opening up new areas. I have a feeling that I will need to revisit old areas to progress later, but im not at that point, yet. Overall I am really enjoying it, it is falling short of being a classic so far. One of the composers worked on Symphony of the Night. Indeed one of the main level songs sounds just like a song from Symphony of the Night. Almost reason enough alone to buy it

    Im amazed you managed to complete it so quickly to be able to judge. You must be really good at games

    Ive played it for an hour or so now. First impressions are that it looks and sounds lovely. Ive already heard a couple of remixes of tracks from The Dragons Trap. I have had two different characters so far. They both control really well, and the second character in particular has quite a fun gimmick. Which led to a lovely, lovely little nod to Dragons Trap It has been fairly linear so far, but all around you spot plenty of things that look like they can be interacted with later, once you get the right character or item. Overall it feels like a love letter to, and a proper, improved remake of Dragons Trap, which I realise is high praise indeed! One thing where it differs is that it seems more puzzley... not complicated puzzles, but single room puzzles where you need to flick a switch or do something to progess. Really enjoyable so far, and looking forward to the game opening up more.

    Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is out today. It looks excellent! No reviews on any of the main sites yet. I will download it and report back. Not cheap at £34.99.
  15. I actually like that the articles are shorter. Often I just couldnt be bothered to read the long articles in Edge. I also really like the maths articles
