11:15 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
In December we brought you the news that Contraband Entertainment had disbanded, the remnants of this company being absorbed into MacPlay/United Developers. Contraband itself was an offshoot of now-defunct porting house Logicware. While Contraband's time in the spotlight was short, they did manage to produce an original title: Monster Hunter, a charming game of strategy and action.
This title is available for Mac and PC, and is being published by Monkey Byte Development. Sporting nifty pre-rendered graphics and very low processor requirements, this should be a fine addition to any gamer's catalog when high-powered 3D shooters lose their charm. Here is the official description of the game:
Be one with the Monster Hunter! You are he, the saviour of all that is not drooly, squirmy, or has a name that is proceeded by the word monster. Enjoy strategy at its' finest!Grab the demo of this game from Macgamefiles.com for a glimpse of Contraband's handiwork.
