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.

    Every PS3 owner should have this game. The only excuse not to get it, is if you don’t like tower defense games…

    …and the psp Deluxe Edition with the online co-op, tiki hut, new bosses, challenges and towers is also a must!

  • This is by far one of my favorite PSN titles.
