Filled with six quirky stages and 24 levels, Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess features creatures that wouldn't claim a podium place in any beauty contests - not that they'd want to. Each one dwells in their own peculiar habitat, making a run for it as soon as The Duke appears, having accused them of stealing his woman.
The levels are themed, creating new experiences as you work through the story. Ah, My Magnificent Castle is where the adventure begins, featuring old stone walls and tombstones as platforms; exactly what you would expect as the home of traditional little demon, The Duke. This level introduces the bizarre Squishface Octo-Thing, who must be defeated before you move on to other levels, such as the aptly named Some Gaudy Caves and Big Stupid Tree.
If you are looking to seriously punish some unsuspecting monsters, gain loads of points throughout each level to unlock some new challenges and serve up some justice.
You are provided with hints and tips before tackling each monster, such as cackling louder or showing off to strangers, and these will (probably) make you perform better within each level.
Princess thieving monsters
Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess puts you in control of The Duke, an aristocratic demon who is convinced that his missing princess has (probably) been stolen by monsters. Determined to find the guilty creature, who hadn't the decency to leave a tiny scrap of evidence behind, The Duke accuses just about every monster he finds of snatching his true love from his castle.
As you play through the story you come across the most hideous creatures, each of which is a possible princess thief, and you waste no time blaming them for your loss. In each level you must chase the brutes as they try to escape, and demolish them by attacking them three times.
To catch the culprit, you must chase the monsters as they flee upwards by jumping onto the platforms, building combos on your way. Gained by touching as many platforms as possible, combos boost your energy so you can catch up with the brutal beasts with super speed and then attack them with mind-blowing moves. Touch the same platform twice and you'll have to start your combo all over again.
On the quest for your lady love, gain points through monster-bashing and combo-building to unlock new levels, and discover who has (probably) stolen your princess.
