Game release: “Monster Bash HD” (PC)

Emberheart Games and Apogee Entertainment bring back a classic action-platformer with Monster Bash HD.

Halloween is over, but one game that came out around the time should still be given the news article treatment, as it’s quite fitting with its horror themes that are also suitable for kids. Released in 1993, Monster Bash tells the story of young boy Johnny whose dog as well as pets of other people have been kidnapped, and he finds out that there’s a whole monster world under his bed where they have to be rescued.

Monsters and other creepy things can be destroyed with the boy’s trusty sling shot, and of course platforming and puzzle elements are present and correct, too. The new version which includes all 3 episodes of the original shareware game doesn’t only offer HD graphics that remain true to the comic art style, but also more difficulty levels, minor gameplay tweaks, achievements, online leaderboards, and a level editor. Knowing its nostalgic audience, the developer has left the music and sound effects intact. So it should be a pleasant trip down memory lane for some older gamers for sure.

The game is out now on PC with a 25% launch discount that lasts until tomorrow, November 5, 2021, at 6 PM UTC.
