This month on PlayStation Plus The Deadly Tower of Monsters is free. Daddy Poppins and the little man sat down and tried it out.
So little man, what did you think of the game?
‘It’s good but not as good as Transformers (you can find it’s review here). Cos that was like ‘pew pew pew, Cher chi chi chi Ching. Taa Daa Boom.’ (Exact quote*) Transformers had cooler abilities and there were more robots to play as.
(please bear in mind that Transformers was the first similar game he’s played on a console, his extensive gaming knowledge goes from transformers to Minecraft, with nothing in between)
What did you like about:
‘It had a lot of commentary!’
‘OK….. and what does commentary mean, little man?’
‘It sounded good, it told you what was happening’
‘It made it easier to find your way around’
What else did you like about it?
‘There were pretty cool bad guys!’
What didn’t you like about it?
‘The scissors was really silly. Would have been better if it was like a power core (again, this was in Transformers). Like ‘phuuu diss.’ (Exact quote*)’
As there are 3 characters (a man, woman and robot) I asked which was his favourite:
‘I like the girl. She looked awesome’
‘Like your Mammy…. cool and awesome’ said his Mam from the other room.
‘Uh huh’ replied the little man (He’s very well trained)
‘I thought you’d like the robot’
‘No…..The robot was too slow’
So little man, what was your favourite weapon:
‘Oh…the big spikey ball thing. Cos it looked pretty cool’
You least favourite enemy?
‘Definitely the Emperor!’
And your favourite:
‘The Monkey Archers, I knew how to kill them’
Some examples of B movies including one called forbidden plant that Deadly Tower of Monsters ‘paid homage’ to
Now little man, the all-important final score:
‘Mmmmm, just less than Transformers’
‘So it got 7, will we give it 6.5?’
So there you have it. The little man scores The Deadly tower of Monsters 6.5/10
