Lace up your skates and play with your fave ghouls in Monster High Skultimate Roller Maze the Video Game, and here is our review.

Pick your own clawsome team as you race through the scary-challenging course filled with terrifying traps and killer obstacles. Unlock 12 different Monster High characters and 6 tracks–including Monster High Stadium, Gloom Beach, Skull Shore and more–by winning races.

There are four different modes to select from, including a circuit mode where the team with the most points at the end wins and a timed mode where it’s you against the clock! There is a relay mode and also a quick race if you just want to jump in a play.

You can pick from 12 characters, including Clawdeen, Robecca Steam and Abbey Bominable. Each of the characters has their own special power that they can using during a race once they have collected power ups and their power meter is full. These special powers include Electric Kisses and Bat Calls and have a different outcome in the game.

The complete list of characters and their special powers are detailed below so that you can check if your favourite character is included:

The tracks give you the chance to really get into the game and use your special powers and gives a lot of replayability. The tracks are quite long and there are secret routes to find so it should keep you interested.

Your characters become tired during the race and you can easily switch between them when the energy bars are low. This also gives you the opportunity to try out different special moves, which can be quite fun. Just make sure you collect the coins scattered around the track as they will help with your power meter!

You can collect lots of power ups in the game, and these come in the shape of coffins left around the tracks – just race into them and they are yours.

The controls work well and it doesn’t take very long for you to really get into the game and find yourself leaning into turns and moving about as though you were in the game itself.

And there are even varying difficulty levels to choose from if you find it too hard, or not challenging enough.

I am personally not a huge fan of 3D games, but I was pleasantly surprised how well Monster High Skultimate Roller Maze worked in 3D mode. And if you don’t like it you can also switch it back to 2D mode.

If you are a fan of Monster High, or more likely you have a child who is a fan of Monster High, then this game should keep them occupied and quiet for hours and its actually rather fun. This game is aimed at children so if you are not a child you may not enjoy it quite as much – or maybe you will? Little Orbit have done a good job on the game and Monster High fans should be very pleased.

Monster High Skultimate Roller Maze for the Nintendo 3DS is available now and costs £24.99.

  1. The ‘special powers’ table is a great guide to what the game is about. Feedback that we’re hearing is that it’s definitely worth buying (if you’re a young fan of Monster High) – this game is a big improvement on Ghoul Spirit, the first Monster High console game that was released.
