Or to be precise a casual Local multiplayer Co-Op tower defence game with adjustible difficulty levels. Awesome! On lowest level I had fun playing this game with my 4 year old and on the higher level with my 9 year old. Both really like this game as much as they like Plants versus Zombies (another Tower Defence) + simple controls + not to complex types of structures to build + does funny dances to improve your structures + co-op + lots of different kinds of enemies + big end level bosses + not to fast game play for kids/my parents (sorry mom) - graphics are okay, but could be better - gameplay feels a bit slow for younger adults (not you mom... sorry again)
Underneath PixelJunk Monsters? cutesy appearance lies a surprisingly challenging game. Just because you?ve mastered other tower defense games, don?t be too quick to dismiss Pixeljunk Monsters. The level design is more inventive and challenging than average, and there isn?t one set strategy you need to pursue, unlike some other tower defence games. PixelJunk Monsters looks nice and is both fun and challenging to play. Recommended.
The typical tower defense has the player surviving wave after wave with a starting wage and earning cash for each enemy slain. In PixelJunk Monsters, you play a masked man in this tiki totem themed adventure that requires a bit more involvement from the player. Not only can you walk around to pick up money and find a good tree to turn into a tower, you can level them up for free by dancing. That's right, dancing! Most everything about this game is simple, easy, and straight forwards. The real challenge begins on trying to score perfects on the hardest difficulty by figuring out how to manage the timing and placements of your tiki guy along with where and which towers to build. The best part about this game in my opinion, given the mechanics and controls, allows you to cooperatively play and enjoy the experience with a friend.
Alright, short sweet and to the point; This is a fairly decent Tower Defense Game. It's not amazing, but it's pretty good i suppose, as compared to some other TD games available on steam. The gameplay is fairly bog standard tower defense with a twist; you can have your tikiman dance under towers to gain EXP and level up (they also get EXP by killing things), which makes them more powerful. Alongside a decent upgrade system, and the fact that monsters don't attack your powers, this makes higher power towers actually useful. The graphics are also decent as well, it's got a cute, hand drawn cel shaded style. Overall, it's a decent tower defense game. I'd recommend grabbing it.
I received PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate (henceforth: PJ) as a part of a bundle welcoming me as a loyal buy on GMG. I'm always been a fan of Tower defense - who isn't? It ties together grindy number accumulation and the best of turtle tactics. PJ ties together the basics of tower defense with a quirky aesthetic and the mechanic of the player being their own sprite which has to physically move around the map to place and upgrade towers. The placement mechanics are by no means innovative. Trees along a set path can be turned into towers and towers can be upgraded. Different towers do different things. The true innovation of PJ is the introduction of cooperative play. Playing locally with a friend is really nice as both of players feel like they have accomplished. A good game for friends or for those obsessed with cutesy graphics.
