Monsters Ate My Condo is a puzzle game released by [adult swim].
“Terrible catastrophe! Four ferocious monsters of destruction are on a rampage and only residential high-rises will satisfy their boundless hunger. In this larger-than-life puzzle game, you will use intuitive swipe controls to match the colored floors. Feed the creatures and prevent the destruction of all humankind!”
The idea of the game is simple, you are given a condo tower, you need to try and get three of more same coloured sections together to get them to disappear and give you a combo bonus. There are two monsters by the condo, one to the left and one to the right.
If you drag a piece of condo into a monster which is the same colour as they are, they are happy. Pull in a different colour they become upset, too many wrong colours and they can sake the condo making it fall. If you manage to get the monster very happy they will switch out for a different monster.
The game offers to modes of play, the endless mode (continue playing until the condo falls) and the time attack (that gives you 2 minutes to make the best score you can).
There is also a meet the monster section, that tells you the monster names, background and super powers.
The game is controlled by dragging the sections of condo left or right into the monsters.
The graphics and sound are good, but for the the bouncy soundtrack and cute monsters dancing by the side of the condo.
On the upside:
- Bright and Colourful
- Weird and Wacky as you would expect from [adult swin]
On the downside:
- Memory Hungry, needed to restart an iPad 1 to stop it crashing on opening.
- Trying to be a little bit too wacky.
Overall, this game just really did not grab me. It was interesting and unique, but I did not feel the fun. I played it four times and just felt like that was enough. To be honest I have liked all the adult swim titles, but feel that they lack any depth or longevity. If you love adult swim games then you will probably be happy with this one, otherwise you may be a little disappointed.
