Fantastic setting, high difficulty
Monster Party is one of those games that marries game music, sound effects and art in such a way that it leaves you with a depressed, sort of macabre feeling while you play... and that's exactly what was intended.
THe level design is odd, and the story odder still - but play it alone with the lights off at home and you'll get a sense of loneliness no other NES game can provide. It'll have an effect on you.
