Paper Monsters Review by Gaming on Batteries

Triverse writes, "Side scrolling action platform games on portable devices that don’t carry the Nintendo lable are rarer than rooster’s teeth nowadays, that is why it is so awesome to see one available on Android. Paper Monsters by Crescent Moon Games is just that, a 2.5D action adventure title with its roots firmly planted in the 16-Bit days of platforming bliss. If you remember playing games like Astal, Clockwork Knight 1 and 2 on Sega Saturn or have enjoyed the more recent Sonic 4 Episode 1 and 2 then you will be right at home with Paper Monsters." (Android, Paper Monsters) 80/100

This review makes this game seem surprisingly good. Might have to pick it up.

It is really good. I wrote the review and have been playing Paper Monsters for over a week now trying to pull away and write it up. Growing up with 8-Bit Nintendo in the 80's through the SNES/Genesis then the PSOne and Sega Saturn onto the Dreamcast (where I stopped buying newer games for about six years) I was thrilled to find this game and it be great.

The developers are obviously old school fans that know their stuff. I tried other 2D style games that have hit recently and they all have problems that stop them from being fun and just come off as stiff.

It is all in the details as they say.

if only nintendo would wake up re-make contra and r-type , gradius , einhander .

Konami has remade Contra on DS, I believe and a 2D homage on PS2 (both sold crappy numbers), R-Type has been remade on PS2 by Fresh Games by Eidos in R-Type Final, again low sales. Konami hasn't done much with Gradius as of late (the last decade) that I know of and Einhander would be Square Enix, I believe.

Still would love to see remakes of them all on Android, iOS, PS Vita or 3DS since ALL of the companies involved are working on those platforms in some form or another.
