Hentai Game Review: Monsters 'n Girls

I can’t really do a full playthrough of this as it’s an arcade game with minimal plot.  Lewd demons have invaded a peaceful fantasy kingdom and it’s up to a brave knight to save the day.

You know those porn parody films with titles like This Is Not [Insert name of TV Show/Film] XXX.  Well Monsters ‘n Girls is basically this for the old arcade classic Ghouls ‘n Ghosts.  Anyone familiar with the original will spot the similarities in the intro, game play, level design and even in some of the monsters.

Monsters ‘n Girls is an action platformer where you fling lances at various monster girl enemies.  The hentai element is provided by pixel hentai animations.  Whenever you get knocked over, the nearest monster girl will climb on top and start fucking you.  This is similar to games like Eroico, Milia Wars and The Paradise Fortress of RePure Aria.  There are a wide range of monster girls, so you can expect to be glooped by slime girls, wrapped up in lamia coils and ridden by lusty succubi during the course of the game.

Thankfully it’s not as brutally hard as the game it’s parodying/homaging.  The normal mode is effectively infinite lives and the checkpoints are placed close enough that even platformer-incompetents like me can make it to the end.

The pixel scenes and artwork are fine, but—despite a good selection of monster girls—the sex scenes could do with a little more variety.  It’s weaker in that respect than either Eroico or Paradise Fortress, but at its price is a cheap and sexy distraction.  And those nostalgic for the old Ghouls ‘n Ghosts will enjoy it.

(For nostalgia I did try playing Ghouls ‘n Ghosts again on MAME.  That did not go well.  The game is still as brutally difficult as I remember).
