“A brilliantly bonkers match game, second only to Zookeeper on iOS — but first in terms of lunacy.”£0.69
Half the time, we’ve no idea what’s going on in Monsters Ate My Condo. Its extreme presentation isn’t crazy in the sense of ‘like a goofy sit-com star’, but stark-staring mad. That’s okay, because the game is glorious.
At its heart, this is a match game, with trios of coloured apartment block floors being fashioned into metal floors that can be further combined, eventually into diamonds. But flanking your tower are two surreal beasts, into whose gaping maws you swipe unwanted floors. Feed them the wrong colour and they smash your tottering tower; feed them metal and they power-up in unique ways. It’s like someone put iOS tile-stackers shibuya and Jenga in a blender with an extra-large tub of mental and served the result on a bed of super-neon crazy time.
We love it, especially on iPad, where the bigger screen affords you more precision, while a boat-hat-wearing mutant crab and mecha-driving giant dog aim to bring your tower down. Like we said: odd.
