Review: PixelJunk Monsters

Posted by on October 14th, 2009 | 3 Comments | Tags: ,

Developer: Q-Games
Release Date: January 23, 2008
Price: $9.99
Players: 1-2 (local)
Demo: Yes

What I liked:

  • The style and music (Otograph made a great soundtrack)
  • The co-op play (Playing with a friend is the way to go)
  • The trophy challenges (Great challenges, although some are brutal)
  • The tower variety (Tesla towers are my favorite)
  • Youtube Uploading (Helps if you need to find how to beat a level)

What I disliked:

  • The difficulty later on (Even on casual it is hard to “rainbow” some stages)
  • The controls (The main character slides a little to much for my liking)
  • No online co-op (PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe for PSP has this though)

Even with the hard difficulty and “floaty” controls this game is still worth every penny. One of the best co-op games on the PS3. You will have more fun in co-op than in single player though.
