2D platform games are perennially popular, of course, with their simple controls and 'let's play again' addictive qualities. Paper Monsters is a brand new entrant into the field, at least new on Windows Phone, with gorgeously colourful graphics and animation, fun soundtrack and well structured gameplay. An immediate hit, I predict.
Dive into the world of Paper Monsters and watch a living world made out of paper, cardboard, and a few cotton balls unfold right before your eyes. Paper Monsters takes all of the classic 2d platforming elements, combines them with cutting edge graphics and then packs it onto your Windows Phone.
Classic 2d sidescrolling gameplay with gorgeous 3d environments.
Original and adorable characters
Awesome original soundtrack - headphones recommended!
Fun under water and flying powerups.
Two control types: "floating" Joystick or classic touch pad
28 Large Levels across 6 unique worlds
Tons of secret areas!
High score dash mode for endless replay value!
Fun for all ages
Here's the game in action:
There's a choice of controls, but they're simple enough for anyone of any age to get to grips with...
Although a 2D platformer, everything's rendered in a 3D fashion and the colours, shading and details are all first class...
Different levels, themes and looks, different terrain, different baddies....
The pseudo-3D is used here to provide action 'in the background', then it all gets larger again when your character is teleported back to the foreground....
The in-game currency is essentially for dressing up your character.... And no, there's no way that I can see to buy coins with real world currency, so you haven't got to worry about your kids hitting that 'by mistake'....
Explaining the currency build up - the gameplay is nicely pitched after outings on other mobile platforms....
Terrific stuff at every turn and possibly the best gaming value in the Windows Phone Store right now. Grab it while you can.
