Moonsters [rating: 4/5]
The game is very easy to pick up. You have a Moonster at the bottom of your screen. It is in a little bubble and if you touch the bubble you can move him left or right. You might also notice if you pull down on him it will show an arrow that you can move from side to side to aim.
Now you may want to know why on earth you need to shoot this cute little moonster up, well it is simple. It wants to go home and exchange tofu for parts to his spaceship. Floating above your moonster in the sky are pieces of said tofu that it needs to collect. They are egg shaped might I add, not sure why! He must collect these by you firing him up and doing so by using the controls I mentioned.
On some occasions you will have to make your moonster bounce off the edges and back just to make sure you hit all the tofu pieces. It is a great physics puzzler where you have to plan ahead.
As you go through each level you collect stars as well depending on your score, to unlock further chapters you need to collect a set amount of stars first. So while it may be tempting to just quickly collect the amount of tofu you need to move on you do also need to score high to unlock the next part.
In each level there is a large tofu piece with wings and if you collect that first you earn more points. On each level you have to collect a certain amount of tofu before you can move on to the next.
There are three characters within three chapters with 90 levels to complete in total. The first few I would say are very easy and at first I thought I was going to fly through them all but I am glad to say that they improved and became quite a challenge.
I did notice after each completed level it takes a little more time than it should to confirm you have completed the level and that you were able to move on to the next level. This part could do with speeding up abit.
One of the first things you’ll notice about the game are the cute and colourful graphics. Very eye-catching and appealing to all ages. It is full of great catchy music and some cute sound effects too.
The game is integrated with facebook and you can also compete with other players on an online leader board. It would be nice to see this game integrate with Game Center to play against your friends as well.
Moonsters is an addictive puzzle game that is also complimented with very nice graphics. It offers hours of fun as you can replay levels to improve your score and collect more stars.
