Lost Monsters review (iPod/iPhone)

October 21, 2011

“Can you find the valium? Can you bring it soon?
Lost Johnny’s out there, Baying at the Moon”

10 word description: Slide windows, match monsters, blow open barricades, score massive points.

As with the majority of sliding block / match-3 games, screenshots don't really make it look that interesting

10 word review: ‘Block sliding meets Match-3′ ends up better than it sounds.

She's cute. Is this a Japanese RPG?

You will like this if you enjoy: Block sliding puzzles, match-3 games, casual fast-paced puzzle games.

I'm one block slide away from total world domination. Well, level 8 at least

The good news: Looks good, plays smoothly, has that “one more go” feel; unlockables & achievements add to the replayability. Control method can’t be faulted.

The bad news: Nothing really wrong with it. Ok, here’s one thing: the monsters are possibly a bit too alien looking and not instantly recognisable as monsters.

This game has it all, including an unsubtle reminder that I have no friends

Arcadelife verdict: The world is pretty much split into three camps – people who love match-3 games, people who don’t, and people who have never played a videogame in their life. My main challenge right now is choosing something to review on a Saturday night when I’m tired, not sure whether I’m still hungry or not, and an as yet still-not-unwrapped iCade is sitting in a box on the floor of the room where I’m typing these very words. So, Lost Monsters… Ok, it’s a pretty good game and you don’t have to be a match-3 lover to enjoy it, although that would certainly help. Now I think it’s time to unwrap that iCade … look out for a review on Arcadelife very soon.
