Monster Loves You! is a text-based choose your own adventure game. You guide your monster through stages of its life, your actions determining your monster's attributes, such as ferocity, cleverness, and bravery.
While each stage of life has multiple short adventures to take your monster on, they rarely influence each other, beyond some of them becoming easier depending on which 'stats' you've leveled up beforehand. It isn't until the latter of the game, which you may or may not reach due to your decisions in game, where you begin having an influence on anything beyond your monster village and the woods around it.
Monster society is darkly humour- black comedy abounds. You meet many different fairytale creatures and have an opportunity to try and befriend or viciously murder and eat all of them. The soundtrack and visuals are bright and cartoonish, and fit perfectly.
Each play-through will take you about twenty to thirty minutes, depending on how fast of a reader you are, and getting most of the endings is pretty intuitive. It's a good game to pass the time.
