About This Game

Tikiman the Forest Defender is in trouble. Hordes of monsters are sweeping through his realm, hoping to chow down on his offspring – and it’s up to you to defend them.

By placing weapon towers at strategic points around the landscape, you can destroy the invaders and save the little ones. Collect treasure along the way to build up your arsenal and pay for new towers – countless waves of monsters are out to get the Tiki babies, so you need to be prepared to fight hard!

PixelJunk Monsters is the best tower defense game of all time. I put a very large amount of time into the PS3 version.

This game is incredibly challenging. Controlling a unit on the field which can upgrade and build towers adds to the immersion. The visual style and music are very vivid and peaceful.

There is a very nice degree of balance between all the enemy units and your various towers and their upgrades. Each level has a different path to victory, and comes with fresh visuals.

I have purchased this game three times now and I would buy it three times again (hopefully not), and it is still one of my favorite games. PixelJunk Monsters is by far the best tower defense game I have ever played. A simple and pleasurable tower defense game that has beautiful graphics and music. The game is challenging and rewarding even though it will test your resolve. I simply cant say enough about this game, you definitely should buy this game.
