The Fall of Games: Review Week – Monster Manor

WP_20130916_008

 

In this game players take on the role of an investigator who was hired to discover the mystery of monster manor along with your plucky young sidekick who I’ll just call ‘plucky’ because I forgot what her name it. Anyway the mystery wasn’t so hard to figure because it was ghosts, and thanks to their otherworldly ghostly powers you can’t escape the manor (well let’s pretend you can’t).  However there’s hope, the manor also mii jacks all the street pass mii you come across with. They have map pieces of the manor’s interior (why do they have them? you’re asking too many questions) and are  more than willing to give them up if you figure out how to get out this crazy place and defeat the ghosts along the way. So basically Monster Manor is a thinking mii’s game: there are an unknown number of floors in the scary estate and each floor is shrouded in mystery. That’s when the map pieces from the street pass mii’s come in. Each piece contains various shapes for hallways on the floors, it’s up to you to figure out which piece will fit just right in a floor, but it doesn’t stop there. Players also have to think ahead when they place pieces because each piece will be in the favorite color (from their shirt)  of the Mii you received it from; if you match pieces of the same color with one another then they’ll change from a hallway to a room. A room will have all sorts of goodies like weapons, gems, items, a place to store all your stuff, even other miis to help you once again and more. Speaking of weapons, you’ll be using blasters to fight the undead. You’ll start will a rusty blaster but if you’re a good detective you’ll better blasters that have elemental effects and special abilities. Players can even upgrade them if they got the right materials. Monster Manor, like all the new 3DS street pass games, is a lot of fun and certainly worth the $5 I paid to the sales bunny for the title. There’s nothing left to say but bustin makes me feel good baby.
