What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Monster High: Skultimate Roller Maze is based on the successful line of Monster High toys, games, and books, as well as an online Web series. This game lets players race as their favorite Monster High characters through a series of winding tracks that span dungeons, beaches, and everything in between. In order to gain a leg up on the competition, players can use a variety of items to slow down other racers. If someone gets hit by an item, they shout out in frustration, but there are otherwise no violent effects.
What's it about?
In MONSTER HIGH: SKULTIMATE ROLLER MAZE, players need to assemble a team of their favorite Monster High characters as they race through all sorts of different environments. They need to rollerblade their way to the top to become the ultimate champion. In addition to the single-player mode, players can also race against friends and family, with up to three-person multiplayer.
Is it any good?
Monster High: Skultimate Roller Maze is obviously designed with one audience in mind -- those who are already familiar with the Monster High franchise. Those players will not be disappointed with the selection of playable characters available in this racing game. Even without the themed characters, though, there are some aspects of this game that make it a special racing game. For example, there is a "relay" race mode in which players need to set up three characters to complete individual parts of the race. In addition, each character has a distinct "racer type" based on their speed, stamina, and agility. This gives the game "replayability" for players who want to try racing with different characters. On the flip side, the graphics are not as polished as they could be, and the controls sometimes feel a bit off kilter, but for the most part, Monster High: Skultimate Roller Maze is an enjoyable experience for any Monster High fan.
