Mall Monster

Some really good ideas which are ultimately undermined by monotonous game play and the occasional annoying feature.

    Mall Monster is a top down game, in which you control a guy running around a mall, trying to avoid a monster. The game is split into sections in which the aim of each is to collect the keycard that gives you access to another section, while continuously avoiding the monster.

    The graphics in the game aren’t bad – but nothing awfully special either. They do their job but don’t really dazzle or anything. The sound is atmospheric – whenever you start getting close to the monster you can hear it and you can also hear your heart beat increase (which is also shown on a ‘pulse bar’ down the bottom of the screen). This is a nice touch, although ultimately it doesn’t save the game from becoming monotonous.

    The game play isn’t bad but there just doesn’t seem to be enough to it. You run around avoiding the monster, you collect various bonuses and keycards and you move onto a different section. If your heart rate starts beating too fast, you black out for a short period of time. At first this seems like quite a nifty little addition to the game, but the novelty wears off very quickly, especially when you black out several times in quick succession. The monster itself (which looks like something out of Alien Breed) is annoyingly fast and when it does manage to appear on your screen, there is little or no chance of outrunning it. Even with all of its good ideas, there is just something about the game that makes it seem a little bit underdeveloped.

    In conclusion, this game is still worth a look – just don’t expect anything too amazing and you won’t be disappointed.
