Over dit spel

Zoals veel van dit soort dingen begint het allemaal op een magisch eiland. In dit geval op Gogapoe Island, een plek waar zowel mensen als monsters wonen. Het begint als een missie om Niko's verjaardagstaart terug te krijgen, maar het wordt een zoektocht waarbij je Gogapoe zelf moet redden. Maar weet je, taart is ook nog steeds superbelangrijk!

Massa's vriendelijke monsters helpen Niko bij z'n zoektocht en gebruiken hun maffe krachten om hem te helpen het eiland te verkennen, puzzels op te lossen, hindernissen te slopen en vijanden voor gek te zetten. Hordes kwaadaardige monsters schoppen herrie of zijn gewoon lastig, maar dat kun je wel oplossen met kopstoten, ijsadem, stinkwolken en regenboogkots.

Maak de dag goed en bevredig je monsterlijke zin in taart in één keer in MONSTERS ATE MY BIRTHDAY CAKE!

You know, every puzzle game tries to have it's own little unique thing. This title is way more unique than other puzzlers. Besides the mild zaniness of the story, the stages offer such a unique challenge that is also fun to make your way through. It's so simple, yet so complex at the same time. Definitely try this title.

Generally, I'm pretty bad at puzzle games. However, Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is a puzzle game with such a adorable theme and reasonable puzzles that not only did I finish the game, but I had the interest and motivation to obtain every star for every level and obtain all the costumes as well. It's hard to put my finger on what it is that is attractive and addictive about this game, but I would highly recommend it as something to play when you're having a hard day, and just need some attention-grabbing and fun distraction.

Pleasant little puzzle game with fun art and story. A few puzzles were sort of "groaners", but most were fair and some were even reasonably challenging. Doesn't overstay its welcome or force you to grind through repetitive fluff. Solid.

Is it cute? Yes. Is it fun? Eh...

Truth be told, I'm not sure how epic the story gets because I am still crawling through the first world. The gameplay is clever, but it feels a bit mechanical. You'll have to replay a tricky level to get the timing right, to find the simple solutions that tend to hide in plain sight. If you want all the in-game achievements, you're replaying some of these levels a few times each. The world feels small, because it's a series of short levels to puzzle through in 2 minutes or less. After a few mini-levels in a row, you'll gain a small tidbit of story to move forward with.

This game seems to hinge on whether you enjoy the gameplay or not. I'm not a huge fan of it. I prefer my puzzlers to be a bit faster, spontaneous and unpredictable. There's not a lot of surprise here. You either make the right turns or you don't. If you do, awesome, time for the next similar level. If you don't, try again. Rinse, repeat.

The design is clever, and the characters are cute. But they feel a bit flat, with minimal dialogue and few defining characteristics. The story seems to unravel a bit slowly (what little story there is). I give them credit for including a story, but I'd love more of it. There is good humor in this title, but other reviewers seem to find it funnier than I did. (Some of the characters communicate with emoticons, to give you an idea.)

I've picked this one up multiple times to try and get engaged, but no dice. By no means is it a bad game, or a waste of money. I'm just a bit disinterested so I feel like I could've spent the few dollars on a more addictive puzzler. YMMV.

PS: Get it on sale.

I'm not too far into it. Only the first world, stage eight. But I find it to be entertaining and whimsical. The cast of characters is pleasant and their unique abilities for solving puzzles are introduced to you bit by bit as not to give you information overload.

If I had to compare it to a game, I'd call it a mix between classic Zelda and Chip's Challenge. Just far less sword-swinging. For now.

Even better and more appropriately, I was gifted this game on my birthday. My cake was not stolen by monsters, however.

Also. Sausage beast. And kicking sharks into the sun.

Monsters Started to Eat My Birthday Cake

I discovered this game because Disasterpeace composed the soundtrack and I adore Disasterpeace. Anything he works on I look into. I added this game to wishlist and waited for a sale... I can't remember if I bought it on sale or got impatient and purchased regardless, but after playing through it I think it is worth the price they ask!

This game follows the adventures of Niko, a young boy whose particular birthday becomes the second worst birthday ever, thanks to the Monsters that--you guessed it--Ate [His] Birthday Cake, although I feel like that's not entirely true, as the premise of the game has you trekking across worlds acquiring discarded slices of the cake itself. Admittedly though, "Monsters Took My Birthday Cake and Strew it Across the Island for Little Apparent Reason" doesn't quite have a ring to it...

Along the journey, Niko makes friends with a cast of eclectic and quirky characters, each of which has a special ability that helps the player to solve puzzles and progress through the levels. The levels are accessible through a "road-map" with each stage being a separate bump in the road (think Super Mario Brothers 3). Even the cutscenes are replayable by entering their "stage".
Each level contains multiple objectives which reward you with a star for each mission completed. This means that there is incentive to replay levels and beat the target time, or find the hidden treasures, etc. The treasures can be traded and compiled with the townsfolk to complete side quests and unlock costumes for Niko. These costumes are vital, as some costumes give Niko new abilities that allow access into parts of the levels that are otherwise unreachable.

All in all, this is a very enjoyable game! It challenges your mind and coordination without being unreasonable, and provides a lot of laughs. The humor can be a bit childish sometimes, but it's the youthful demeanor that makes this game what it is. I have played it on Android and on PC, and I prefer PC. Touch controls just never appealed to me as much as the precision of a keyboard.

And then I bought the soundtrack.

I really enjoyed this game. The graphics are simple and charming, the music and sound effects match the ambiance. It's fun and at times you get frustrated because you can't figure out something you know is simple, but I absolutely loved it.

The game was pretty fun. Some challenging puzzles towards the end but nothing too hard. Some of the references were pretty funny and the humor was witty. I'd give it a 4.5/5. My experience would've been better if the achievements weren't so buggy. You have to quit out of your game and reopen it for them to unlock. I've done everything there is to do in this game and I still have one achievement that hasn't popped. If achievements don't mean much to you, and you enjoy a good puzzle, I'd suggest grabbing this game.

The game sets a new milestone in casual gaming. The quality of graphics, music and animation is exceptional. Puzzles are fun and hard enough to make you spend extra hours polishing each level. One of the rare games that was Kickstarted to be a new masterpiece.

Beautifully well-made game. The art is so playful and clean. The puzzles are fun and even become a challenge when you're trying to 3-star a level. Plus the music is done by Disasterpeace so you know it's grand.

Oh and a unicorn freaking BARFS RAINBOWS!

In case no one can tell from the trailer video, it's a puzzle adventure game with a bunch of cute monsters and villagers in it. It requires some teamwork with these cuties to get all your cake back.

A fantastic puzzler with great music, art, writing, ... (the list goes on). I was a apprehensive with purchasing this as I feared the game may have been too childish, but this is not the case.

The puzzles definitely get fairly complex. I've only played up to the third world so far, and nothing has been all that challenging, but if the pace continues, the fourth world is going to have some wonderfully difficult challenges. Don't expect something to twist your mind like a puzzle from Braid or FEZ might. The puzzles here rely on the teamwork mechanic. You must control up to four different characters, switching between them, one at a time, and orchestrate their movements in order to progress.

The RPG-esque elements add fun content to the game (which could stand on its own without them). There are always sidequests to complete and new ones pop-up frequently, at least once you complete a world. The secrets aren't that well hidden, which is a little frustrating, but some have been tricky enough to make up for it.

The game definitely has a unique charm. The monsters all have quite different personalities and add a nice flavor to the game. The humor just makes me smile.

Don't go into this game expecting be lost on a puzzle for hours, as none of them are THAT difficult. They will make you think in a different way than you're used to, which is what puzzle games really should do, in my opinion.

Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake is an adorable, nostalgic, puzzle solving game with a simple premise; monsters ate your birthday cake. Literally.
The colors are bright and the shapes are appealing. I can understand why Cartoon Network picked this project up later on.
As I was using an xbox controller, the controls are obviously different. But it requires little to no effort to do anything in this game. All you need is the left thumbstick, the 'A' button, and your 'LB'/'RB' buttons.
The dialogue is cute and light with adorable humor. I'll forever use 'broccoli farts' as an endearing way to say 'gas'.
And of course, the music is light hearted and pleasant.

Now on to the actual game play!
As I pointed out earlier, all you're doing is using your thumbstick to move , the 'A' button to use an action, and your 'LB'/'RB' buttons to change your character when you're in play.
There are various little obstacles you need to overcome to help clear your way to collect cake pieces. (And some other goodies such as gold coins and keys)
As this is a casual puzzle game, you don't actually die unless you step onto a trap or the boogies get you.
The only limiter you sort of have is the timer. But you only really care about that if you want your 3 star ranking.
The first two puzzles are extremely easy as they are there to introduce the game mechanics.
Moving forward, you end up meeting monster friends one by one and they help you solve the various levels so that you can advance.

So far, this is an absolutely adorable, fun game for all ages.
The only slightly annoying thing I encountered, and I don't know if it was just me, but the music volume would sort of go up and down in the beginning. But after a while it will go back to being consistant.
I'm glad I donated for this project and I wish the guys at SleepingNinja much success.
Thanks for such a wonderful and polished game!
