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!

Key Features

  • Play four game modes: Single player campaign, local co-op play, online co-op, and a host of additional challenges.
  • Play Together: Local and online co-op will have you sharing your machine or playing with your friend over the net for a shared memorable experience. Online leaderboards show you how you stack up against your friends and everyone else in the world!
  • Tikiman will travel across three distinct islands, spanning 47 unique environments to protect his offspring from clever monsters that attack by land and air. He’s going to use every tower in his arsenal to protect them: Arrow Towers, Cannon Towers, Anti-Air Towers, Ice Towers, Laser Towers, Fire Towers, Tesla Towers, Mortar Towers, special power ups and more!
  • There is also the mysterious Tum-Tum island, that randomly generates levels for near infinite replayability!

Just like it says a tower defense game simple but really adictive, good to help you pass time. It lets you upgrade your towers by spending time with your character on them or by using cristals dropped by monsters. Not really groundbreaking to the genere but a fun game if your into tower defense games.

I will recomend playing it if you like tower defense games or if you just want to pass a little bit of time.

This game is the only reason I ever owned a PSP.
In a world with countless tower defense games flooding the mobile market this one..
Will ALWAYS stand out. Be it on PSP, emulated on an android (or now streamed via steam!)
Simply flawless in it's mechanics and replayability. It's really the only tower defence good enough for me.
And I can't even exactly pin-point what makes it so beautiful..

The music might make you go happy crazy after a while, that could be part of it.
(That's a good thing, it's so weird... Off-beat, out of time but not.. Puts you in a trance.)
But you can totally turn that off if you wish. : P

This new Ultimate edition actually brought a whole lot more to the plate.
Co-op, multiplayer. Way higher resolution game assets, improved effects.
The ability to now stream this higher quality version via Limelight to any android, with a nvidia game stream enabled pc.. (So good.. So good....)

They do need to rework the controls slightly but it doesn't interfere with the gameplay.
Just, they felt slightly more responsive on PSP, and PSP gave you the ability to run faster..
Which I've yet to figure out in this version but perhaps they are working on that still.

Basically, buy the game for 10 bucks and be super happy you did.
You will get addicted. Or wait for a sale for a buck like when I was lucky enough to catch it.
And then get really confused inside when you feel like they actually deserve ten bucks.

Knowing only that Pixel Junk Monsters is a tower defense game and going in with the dreadful experience of all the tower defense game regurgitated out onto the Google Play market, to say that my expectations were not high is an understatement. In most ways this game was everything I assumed it would be, but there was actually a nice little twist to it that really piqued my interest.

Now a nice twist does not mean a nice game. I think Pixel Junk is pretty rubbish, but the way that the tower creation mechanics are done has some serious potential. Instead of just clicking a spot and picking a tower, the devs decided to make the whole process more organic. You control a turtle looking creature and you navigate the board in the same manner as you would an action RPG, hunting for loot and transforming trees into deadly turrets. I think the idea is just awesome and makes the stale tower defense genre much more engaging and potentially complex enough for serious PC gaming.

Sadly everything falls short in Pixel Junk Monsters. The navigation, while so cool, is slow and cumbersome. Instead of using this mechanical twist to up the complexity, it feels like the whole game was dumbed down 12 notches. Such great ideas for one of the most stale genres out there, but the execution just isn’t there. Pixel Junk 2 could be a big deal.

Had this on PSP, it was a great tower defense game. I haven't played it much since getting it on Steam yet but I know it can only be better than I remembered. If you like tower defense, you should love this.

It is just ok. Really more of a "flash" level game. Not worth £7.
Definitely need speed up button. The levels take way to much to go through just because enemies move so slow.
