There is a lot going on here at MonkeyPaw Games! In the past few months, we’ve released our trilogy series Arc the Lad and Alundra on the PlayStation Network Classic section. We hope you’ve enjoyed these games and we have a few more classic Japanese RPGs up our sleeves that we plan to bring you shortly.
In some other news, we’ve released the classic platformer Tomba! on the North American PlayStation Network Import section. I wanted to mention that here because of the HUGE response we’ve received from our European fans. Thank you for your unbridled support! We hope to have a release date for you shortly.
And we’re not done yet. Our goal is rock your retro world. That’s why we’ve populated the Import and Classic sections with unique Japanese gems. We’ve tried to stress the weird and wacky in our selections. Some are famous, some are not, but each game is sure to exceed a level of excellence. So while you may not have heard of all our games, each one is guaranteed to satisfy. And this week’s release is a good example.
Tall Unlimited is a puzzle game that allows your “inner builder” to create a tower of historical proportions. But you’ll need to race time and sweat to do so. The idea is to move blocks and multiply their numbers by creating formations. The concept is simple but it’s a devilishly tricky endeavor.
The object of Tall Unlimited is to build your towers as fast as you can, as high as you can. The game is a progressive challenge through eight stages where you have to complete 10 levels in each stage. The gameplay is fast and furious but the complexity is intuitive and the feel is responsive. So the game comes off refreshingly fun and original. Its addictive action and minimal frustration blends with a creative building element that pulls you in. Like potato chips, once you start you won’t want to stop!
MonkeyPaw will continue to bring you closer to your Japanese gaming roots. We want to deliver all those lost classics from a far-away land that you never thought you’d get your trigger finger on. We hope you’ll continue to browse our catalog and pick up a game or two that strikes your Eastern essence. Tall Unlimited would be a great place to start.
It’s available this Wednesday on the PlayStation Network’s Import section for the reasonable price of €4.99/£3.99. Pick up your digital copy today and don’t forget to follow us at @monkeypawgames on Twitter.
