Meg's Monster Reviews
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.
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 is the perfect game for a parent, it’s a succinct experience that draws heavily on the 16bit era with a colourful cast of loveable characters. It might even make you cry, I’m warning you and if you're like me you'll find yourself smiling as you play.
Meg’s Monster is a unique and heartfelt little game that manages to stand out from its peers. While its gameplay mechanics could benefit from more variety, its characters and story make it a worthwhile experience for players who enjoy games with strong emotional themes.
Meg’s Monster is a game that tickled my heartstrings, something quite rare in gaming. The moment that hit the hardest was when Meg and Roy argued and later apologized to each other in a very adorable way. As a new parent trying to learn the hardest but most rewarding job of my life, I could not help but connect to the relationship between Roy and Meg. So it goes without saying I highly recommend this game. I will add caution because this game is pretty casual with minimal challenge. You’re playing this more for the story and less for the RPG mechanics. But if that sounds good to you, Megs Monster might be the monstrous cuddle you need in your gaming life.
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.
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.

Odencat's Meg's Monster is a brief, pleasant adventure that takes rather obvious cues from Undertale.
