Seduction: A Monk’s Fate from eastasiasoft and Koex is a 2D sidescrolling horror-themed tale on PlayStation. The game begins with s short sequence in which a father and his baby try to seek refuge in the temple as they escape from some people to whom the father owes money. Once the game proper begins, you’ll be playing as that baby, 20 years after your father brought you to the temple.
It seems that you’ve had dreams about a pale woman, which, as a monk, is a big no-no. Having impure thoughts is not what you should be doing! Things soon take a turn into horror territory in this adventure game. You can play this one in Normal Mode or Hard Mode. Normal Mode offers the standard experience, balanced for gamers of all skill levels. In Hard Mode, hints and notes will be removed, thus increasing the challenge since you won’t be able to get some extra help if stuck.
You’ll move your character with the left analog stick, interacting as needed with the X button. While there are enemies in the game, you won’t be fighting them, but you’ll be able to dodge their attacks by moving the left analog stick and pressing the R1 button. The Triangle button will allow you to open up your inventory to review the items you’ve collected so that you can progress through the game by using them by pressing the L1 button. You can pray by pressing and holding down the Circle, which will help you get rid of some of the monsters in your journey. There will be lamps in each area you explore, which will automatically save your progress as you pass them. You’ll also gain a notebook early in the game that can be checked with the Square button to review hints that can be useful.
Seduction: A Monk’s Fate has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to add to your collection. Since the game is Cross-Buy, your purchase will give you the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost, and each game will have its own trophy list. The list includes a pair of Silver trophies and 11 Gold trophies. Twelve of those trophies will pop as you progress through the game and finish the adventure. There are also some collectibles to consider, which are small jade scorpions. Finding all five jade scorpions will give you the one missable trophy in the game.

Seduction: A Monk’s Tale is a 2D sidescrolling horror-themed experience that does not stand out on PlayStation. The premise is interesting, but the game’s execution makes this one feel too straightforward. The monster designs feel derivative, the gameplay mechanics are too simple, and the way the story is presented does not manage to grab one’s attention. Seduction: A Monk’s Fate is out on as a Cross-Buy title, so your $7.99 purchase will give you access to both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game.
