I see how this game can be fun but it just wasn't for me. None of the game felt fun and exciting.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom not only pays faithful homage to Wonder Boy, particularly The Dragon's Trap, but by refining the solid foundations of its spiritual predecessors with modern affordances, it becomes a rich platforming adventure in its own right. With a well-realized world filled to the brim with secrets and excellent platforming mechanics that always keeps things interesting, the Cursed Kingdom is a place you will want to discover every corner of.
I did mostly enjoy the game as a whole and don’t regret my time with it, but it feels uneven and frustrating to me a lot of the time. That doesn’t change the fact that this is a beautiful game with some great ideas on display. Most of the puzzles are interesting, the animal forms are fantastic, and the controls are spot-on. Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is worth a look for fans of exploration-based action-platformers. And if the game comes together for you in a way it doesn’t for me, you can have a great time with it. I just wish it didn’t go out of its way to be so annoying.
Un plataformas de gran variedad, considerable profundidad y elevada duración. Monster Boy y el Reino Maldito llega a PC con la intención de ganarse el aprecio de los aficionados, ¡y lo tiene fácil! Este es un título encantador que brilla por la capacidad de transformación de su protagonista, la cantidad de situaciones que genera y un diseño heredero del esquema metroidvania, combinado con la esencia de la mítica saga Wonder Boy. Y lo mejor es que es mucho más que mera nostalgia.
