Back in the nineties we were huge fans of the Monster in My Pocket franchise, so the opportunity to see the mini monsters come to life on our screens was awesome. However, after looking past the nostalgia, it is clear to see that Konami was probably expecting a little too much from the N.E.S hardware, which resulted in plenty of sprite flickering and slowdown when things got too intense. Still, this is an enjoyable title with a wide range of enemies and completing it is not as frustrating as some other N.E.S era games. It is a little short and has its fair share of frustrating moments, but overall it is decent.
Gameplay: Fairly straightforward platforming and monster bashing that can be done with a friend.
Graphics: The monsters all look great, but some of the later levels are a little generic and sprite flicker as well as slowdown is a big issue.
Sound: Nothing exceptional, but the tunes are good and fit the style of the game
