Monster Tale is a 2D platformer developed by DreamRift, and released by Majesco in 2011. It follows the adventures of a girl named Ellie and her monster friend, Chomp to restore the peace in Monster World
Monster Tale mixes up two unlikely types of games: pet simulators, and platforming. The mix does the game good. The top screen is where the action happens, and the bottom screen has Chomp to investigate items that Ellie tosses down to him. Ellie can occasionally summon Chomp to help her fight.
The game is structured similar to Metroid game.
