I just can’t believe they created another dating sim! That was my initial reaction when I saw Monster Prom. However, it turned out to be a different concept that offered a lot of fun. The guys from Beautiful Glitch did an excellent job. Check out this review and see if you ready to ask out your favorite monster.
We Don’t Hunt Monsters, We Date Them!
In the beginning, you will create a character with a unique set of personalities. The game will adjust your characteristics and skills based on the short quiz you took during the intro session. You then enter the Spooky High School attended by six monsters and other interesting characters, but the focus will be on the former. The goal of a session is to succeed in your intentions to ask your desired monster out to a prom.
This is a not a typical dating sim. You don’t have to hold hands (or any other things). Instead, you will do creative things, properly answer questions, and trigger events that may help you get your date. Monster Prom gives you better chances with a single creature based on your answers to the questionnaire. The game will estimate who your best match is and you will encounter that monster more often while roaming the hallways of the school.
Make Those Three Weeks Count
You have a total of three weeks divided into rounds to get close to your prom date. You choose a room where you will spend the turn. You will talk to monsters and choose the right answers to their questions. Each response will adjust your stats. You might know what the correct answer is, but keep in mind that you might not want your statistics to vary too much.
The general idea is to focus on one monster during a single play-through as that is how you have the best chance of succeeding. The true party starts if you play the game in multiplayer. Playing first in a round has a certain advantage, but at the end of each turn, players vote for the best answer, which opens room for strategy and tactics.
The game looks cartoonish and beautiful. The graphics captured the spirit of high school teens (although they are in form of monsters…but isn’t that what teens are anyway?). The developers say that there are almost 400 events, which increases the replay value of the game. Thanks to the excellent humor, you will enjoy coming back to play again.
