The puddings have had enough of being eaten and now they want some sweet revenge. Pudding Monsters is a new, super cute and highly addictive game by Zeptolabs, makers of the mega hit Cut the rope series. The game’s basic storyline is pretty simple (not easy, mind you) and your job is to control various snuggly little monsters made of pudding as they join up against Humans in a fun filled frenzy of groovy music and extreme cuteness.
The game has you slide the little monsters through the screen, joining them up till they are big enough. There are three stars in each stage. You earn them by having the monster sitting on a star when the stage ends, i.e when all the monsters have joined up to make one big multi eyed but still ultra cute monster. The monsters slip off the surface if they are made to slide in a direction without any hindrance like teacups and bread loaves or as you progress through the game, furniture or even houses. If even one monster falls off you have to replay the stage again. The game is simple to get used to and super fun to play.
There are a total of 3 type of pudding monsters — red, green and purple. The red colored basic ones don’t do much besides sliding round. They are also asleep at times, waking up when another monster joins up with them. Then there are green colored slimy ones which leave a track of slimy glue as they slide. Other monsters can stick to these glue track to maneuver better. Then there are the purple colored hypno monsters who move in unison. Both the slimy and hypno monsters become red ones when they touch other monsters of same or different types. There are also eyes, a single eye that will become a monster on siding on through a red goo that appears on stage. Eyes can’t join up with other monsters without becoming one themselves.
Other additions to the game are multiplier tunnels, which multiply a monster each time it passes through it (yeah, that means endless monsters!), spring bumpers for maneuvering and ice blocks that hinder the monster’s movement only once after which they break.
The game also has mushroom multipliers, which are basically steroids for the cute monsters that has them spontaneously multiply on spot until they fill the whole stage, skipping that stage for you. You get a couple of them for free but after that you have to buy them with real cash. Any purchase disables ads which show up after every three stages and can be a bit of a nuisance occasionally. The game also has various achievements that you unlock by creating assorted monsters or doing special actions like creating 30 monster clones or sticking two 7 eyed monsters.
Pudding Monsters, is awesome and it is fun and it is super addictive. You would want to play each stage till you get all the star, have unlocked all the achievements and played every last stage. The only problem I found with the game is that you just can’t have enough of it and with only 3 levels (each level has 24 stages) out now that is a bit of a bummer. However Zeptolab has promised to get new stages super soon.
As usual, there are two versions of this puzzle game for Android — free and paid. The free version includes advertisements in the game, which appear after every three stages while the paid version, as you must have already guessed it, doesn’t include any ads. Get the game as soon as you can and start sliding off these adorable little tykes.
