Monster Sanctuary review
by Omzo

Many of us have been waiting for Nintendo and the Pokémon Company to update the formula. Well, Dennis Sinner and Moi Rai Games have gone ahead and done it for them. The unique mix of party-based RPG gameplay and Metroidvania style levels introduces a strangely enchanting combination. The hundred-strong roster of monsters is distinct with diverse skills and fantastic pixel art that compliment the outstanding environments they roam around. There are still a few changes needed to the combat systems, and some of the level design is sadly disappointing, yet the fascinating world of creatures gets its hooks deep with almost 30 hours of potential gameplay. Monster Sanctuary is a fantastic innovation on the monster-battling genre, creating a deeper and richer game.
