Critic Reviews for Meg's Monster

Meg's Monster is a one-of-a-kind adventure with a lot of heart, well worth a chunk of your weekend or to play for an hour or two before bed. Sure, some of it is predictable and the novelty of protecting Meg during battle fades near the end, but if you're anything like us, you won't want to put it down until you see how Roy's heartwarming adventure to reunite Meg with her mother concludes. You might even shed a tear or two while keeping the little girl safe.

Meg's Monster tells the story of a big, mean monster who stumbles across the responsibility of caring for a little girl; if she cries, she brings on the end of the world. Playing as the monster, Roy, it is your job to help Meg find her way back home from the underworld by protecting her from other monsters, and playing with her to keep her happy. This unlikely pair forms a sweet relationship in this cute and heartwarming story that is definitely worth a play.

Meg’s Monster is a short but sweet indie game that stands out with its heartwarming plot and an interesting twist to its turn-based combat mechanics.

Meg’s Monster is an emotional journey with a lot of depth, a twisty narrative, and some great character moments. I loved spending time with Meg, Roy, and Golan. Combat isn’t very challenging but still generates tension. I actually wished that the game offered more to do because I wanted more time in its universe, even if I think it’s perfectly paced to deliver its payload of feelings.

Meg's Monster is a great 2D pixel-style action-adventure game that has you exploring the underworld to help this lost human child get back to her mother. With a great story and battle mechanics it is sure to make you smile.

It's a good thing the story of Meg's Monster is engaging because even if the gameplay cleverly ties into the narrative, it doesn't amount to much. As long as your expectations are managed and you're expecting something closer to a visual novel than a JRPG, Meg's Monster should be an enjoyable read as long you're ready for some bittersweet emotion.

Meg’s Monster should be given some consideration if you’re into experiencing the value of a game’s story. The world is based on a structure of what everyone would agree upon the theme of an ‘infant care’. Even after a few hours of gameplay, you’ll be steadily seated with peak curiosity to see what may happen next, with a mixture of mini games and combat, and a unique mechanism of ‘not making the baby cry’ even if you’re low on health. The game will provide around 5 to 6 hours of entertainment at your leisure.

While it only takes a few hours, the blend of narrative, plot-essential battles, and occasional puzzle elements was fun to work through. Anyone in search of a short but satisfying experience should consider this one at some point.
