A poor man's 'My Singing Monsters'...
on 13 November 2014
Before anyone gets on my case about this review, I'd like to say I really wanted to like this game. I played it thoroughly, unlocked all the characters in the first two areas, and most in the third, before I threw in the towel. Now, let me explain why.
It feels like Disney has lifted wholesale, large chunks of 'My Singing Monsters'. The amount of food you have to feed a character, is the same. So is the act of feeding a character to level them up. The sound effects used to signify them eating is the same. There's the same element of random chance in getting the monster/Muppet you desire. And of course, they sing just like My Singing Monsters. Really, one wonders why they didn't just call the game 'My Singing Muppets'!
This game however, is easier to get the rarer, more elusive characters. It feels aimed at younger players, who perhaps wouldn't have the patience to unlock those rare monsters in MSM. But the one thing that I feel hurts the game, is the difference between MSM and this in terms of cuteness and the actual quality of the songs and game. MSM feels like a professional, polished product, and it shows. What this feels like, is a cheap rip-off of that game, with sub-par songs, and a real lack of cuteness and fun, compared to MSM. And two of the most iconic muppets - Stadler and Waldorf - are totally wasted in the game, as non- speaking, non-playable characters!
If you're a parent, looking for a fun game for your young kids, this is okay, if nothing special. But if you're someone who is a bit older, and wants a quality version of this game, rather than a poor imitation? Download My Singing Monsters. It's free too... and a whole lot better. :)
