Monster Farm Jump or Monster Rancher Hop-A-Bout, as it is known here, is not the highlight of the Monster Rancher series. Instead of creating charming monsters from CDs and raising them Monster Rancher Hop-A-Bout only hopping monster in a board game setting. Yeah? Well, I’m content with not getting that as a PlayStation Classic here.
Strangely enough Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is beginning to release Western developed games as downloadable PsOne games too. G-Police, a futuristic shooter, was developed by Psygnosis before they became Sony Computer Entertainment Liverpool. Pop ‘N Pop is also out this week which is sort of like Bust ‘A Move meets Space Invaders with Taito cameos. As a little diversion Pop ‘N Pop is pretty fun.
Here’s what’s out this week. Each game costs 600 yen ($7.50):
