Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure Now $9.99 On Playstation

By   /   Mar 26, 2014

Despite being years old by now, roleplaying game (RPG) Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure has chimed in news about its price drop to $9.99. It’s available for PSP through Playstation Network, but should also work for PS Vita, if you’re a current gamer.

In the accompanying release, it says:

Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure was described as the first ‘Zelda’ game for Sony’s handheld.

That’s some pretty high praise from “some” people. There is definitely a mystical side to the game though.

Its story revolves around a girl named Parin, who lives in a small mining town as the only child there. One day, she finds a girl that turns out to be a monster, which are invisible to adults.

In fact, Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure is more of a clone of Zelda than an actual alternative. It features like-minded puzzles in a set of natural environments, boss fights that drop life gems and so on. It’s colorful though.

There are a series of costumes to unlock for the cute Parin, over 30 locations to go on and tons of enemies to defeat in real-time combat.  It even has some hidden secrets for those who want to sleuth around.

Originally, Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure was a PC release in Japan that later got exported on PSP. That was in 2004, just about a decade now. Since then, the Sony handheld sort of specialized in these sorts of RPG adventures.

At $9.99, there certainly isn’t anything wrong with trying Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure, if you’re looking to sink some time into a cute, little world.
