Make those monsters jump high and you'll be rewarded with all the kid stuff you need! As game three in a series of Monsters Inc. games, Monster Tag unlocks the final free mystery game.
Monster Tag, a single or two-player game, has one main objective: collect all of the kid stuff in the air without one of your monsters falling off of the seesaw. You'll start with only two monsters and then progress to as many as four monsters at once, with only one seesaw. The game has two levels of difficulty: scary and horrifying (the latter being the most difficult).
In the two-player game, you'll take turns playing through the same levels. The second player enters the game when one of the first player's monsters misses the seesaw. The scary level starts out with only two monsters, while horrifying beings with three.
Collect kid stuff such as green teddy bears, socks and rattles, but be advised that certain items can only be picked up by a specific monster. The extra monsters sit atop ledges and you must propel your other monster to them to make the switch to the correct one.
The final mystery game, Monster Mania, is a side-scrolling adventure in which you, the monster, try to scare as many children as possible. Dogs and babies stand in your way, while you must put your head through windows to gain scares. The dogs can be scared by a simple growl from you, but babies cannot be affected. If a dog or a baby hits you, you'll be knocked down a full flight of the building.
Monsters may seem scary to kids, but they have problems too, you know? It's hard enough for them to catch all that kid's stuff, let alone scare 4 kids a minute, but maybe with your help they can do it. ~ Nick Woods, All Game Guide
