Side-Scrolling Collectible Card Game "Monsu" Unveiled

Posted by Ellis Spice on May 30th, 2014

Noble Nutlings developer Boomlagoon has announced Monsu, their upcoming side-scrolling collectible card game. The character design and gameplay has been in development for months, and as such the end result will contain dozens of characters and a 'rich' storyline.

In Monsu, players will have to battle their way through endless hordes of grumpy villagers in order to complete the task of retrieving stolen treasure. Each character players come across will have their own magical powers, which can then be collected and used to bash and smash their foes. The game also features multiple territories to explore, including the Woods and the Cemetery.

Antti Stén, CEO of Boomlagoon, had this to say of the game:

We’re focused on creating character-driven games that players love, all around the world. With Monsu, we’ve created a platformer that is easy to pick up and play, instantly rewards the gamer, and still provides nearly infinite ways to progress through the environments.

Monsu is set to arrive on the App Store sometime this Summer.
