Dating sims can take on a lot of different shapes and forms, and there's probably one out there for everybody, and Monster Prom is one of those. Since it is a dating sim, and the title is Monster Prom, you can already guess what it is all about, but we'll talk about it in a moment. Developed by Beautiful Glitch, it is part of a series of Monster-based games.
This game, later on, was released for the Nintendo Switch and other consoles on a full package that included all the DLC available and extra content. But today we'll be focusing on the basic version of the game.
About the game
The days are passing, the time is closing in on you and the prom is right around the corner. It's the last day of class and you have to score some points to make sure you don't get rejected in the prom. It's now the most important moment for every student, it is time to get a date for the prom dance.
Oh, but we haven’t mentioned that this whole thing doesn’t take place in your average institute, it is actually a monsters-only institute. But don’t worry, monsters don’t discriminate, and they can be very romantic. Of course, just like it happens with humans, they come in all shapes and sizes, well, it’s much more literal when it comes to the monsters but you get the point.
But the game is more than just a dating sim, and there are other mechanics you have to keep in mind. Especially since they will also determine if you do get to score the date of your dreams to the prom. But What are these exactly?
Slice of life
TIn Monster Prom, there's also the element of school life. By this, we don't mean that you'll have to study to take some tests or something like that. But you will have to choose different parts of the institute where you'll be doing different activities.
Going to the library, the theater, and more, will get you some extra points. You’ll need these to unlock the monster date you might be looking for. There are plenty of stats and elements to keep in mind. But at the end of the day, it is still a dating sim, so making the right dialogue choice is pretty important too.
Monster Prom is a pretty original dating sim game, sure it may not be as crazy as Hatoful Boyfriend, but it is unique. Sure, it may not take the genre to completely new and unexplored paths, but it is still fun to play. Just like any dating sim, it has great replay value, and every time you play it from start to finish it’s quite short.
One of the most original elements here is that it has a multiplayer mode, and that is more unique than anything else in this game. It relies a lot on humorous dialogues and scenarios, but they aren't really much fun. It can be very predictable and boring. And it does take a lot of inspiration from titles like The Yawhg, almost to the point it is annoying and unoriginal.
