Roaring Reviews!

October 31st, 2011

Here are some of the nice things that people are saying about Me Monstar:

“Me Monstar: Hear me Roar! is exactly what Minis are about: a delicious amuse-bouche of fun.”

Official Playstation Magaine 9/10

“Finally a bit of class. Me Monstar isn’t just one of the best minis yet, but a perfect embodiment of the concept: a simple idea, beautifully executed for a tiny price.”

PSM3 Magazine 8.9/10

“Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar is the definition of a great PSN exclusive Mini: it is simple to learn, difficult to master, clever in design, pleasing to look at, cheap to buy, and, above all else, fun to play.”

Blistered thumbs 8/10

“…Its the best Playstation Minis game I have played since I started Videogame 4 Gamerz. It’s a really solid well made game. The presentation, visuals, sound design are all solid. It’s addicting and very fun.”

Videogames 4 Gamerz 8/10

“… a unique and original PlayStation Mini, with a stunning art-style and a solid gameplay foundation. The game might not be instantly engaging, but its bonkers premise and silly sense of humour will reward your perseverance.”

Push Square 4/5

“…. what is best about Me Monstar is its colour and verve as it expands. This is a funny game, one that loves setting up domino-like scenarios and chucking you in the middle with just the tool for the job…. It’s a tribute to Me Monstar that, despite lasting a good few hours, you want more.”

Commenting on their latest self-published title, Darran Thomas, Creative Director of Cohort, adds “Humorous arcade action is what Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar! is all about.  When developing this game we really looked to push minis as a platform, both in terms of creating a fun and quality experience, but also making the experience as good on PS3™ as it is on PSP™.  We’re really happy with the results, and it was great taking a concept we’ve been playing around with for a while, and putting it out there ourselves with a small team who have complete creative control.  We hope people have as much fun playing it as we’ve had making it!”.

Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar! is currently available exclusively for PlayStation®Plus members only.  However, it will be available for general release later in July!
